    I'll check out the Cave demo for sure.

    The Cave's demo doesn't really show at all what's good about the game. The puzzles don't use the characters' abilities and it's the most boring-looking section of the cave. A missed opportunity.


    I don't understand why Game Boy games have flexible pricing (from $2.99 to $5.99, I think) while Ice Climbers is the same price as Mega Man.

    @Guillaume I think Game Boy games range between $2.99 and $3.99, while GBC games are $4.99 and $5.99. NES games should definitely have a range too. Some are worth $5, like Mega Man or Zelda, but some should definitely be less, like Wrecking Crew or Ice Climbers.

    The Wii gets another VC game? Too bad it's the weakest Metal Slug IMO.

    so Puddle is a port from a xbla and psn game? Devs say its the best version? Apparently is plays like fluidity but has online leaderboards and such. It supports off-screen play.

    I am not sure what the price is and there is no demo. I will wait and see on this one.

    The Cave demo, though..... people should download this and give it a try. I adore the game, i think its great.

    Ikachan - that's the game that's from Pixel, right? The guy behind Cave Story? Or am I confusing it with another game?

    1.) The game is called Ice Climber. Not plural. The characters are ice climbers, but the game is not named that way. (I'm not picking on you, EVERYONE makes this mistake, all of the time)

    2.) I agree NES games should have flexible pricing, but thankfully I am exempt (as are you) in this case, thanks to our Ambassador status. Sucks for Ice Climber fans who are not Ambassadors though, I guess.

    You guys!



    NOT CLIMBERS! Drop the "S" at the end!

    ....ah, never mind. everyone calls it Ice Climbers, Nintendo should just change the title.

    Blame Super Smash Bros. Melee and Brawl for that one.

    Ice Climber for $5 seems kind of hilarious in the midst of all of these 30 cent games.

    @Zero

    It's actually called Ice Climbers. Don't worry about it though, common mistake.

    @Jargon Hmm, nah I think you're wrong.

    I love me some cave story and when I heard about ikachan I was psyched. I'll pick this up asap.

    @Guillaume

    Is it any good? I'm modestly curious about it since it's by Pixel.

    @ludist210

    It's a curiosity. I would recommend checking out the free version on PC as it's very short and feels like Pixel was just practicing before making Cave Story. But if you absolutely must pay $5 to experience it, the game is just gorgeous on the 3DS screen.
