I highly doubt Ikachan has been Ruined FOREVER, my good sir ;)

But of course, this comes from someone who isn't personally a huge fan of Ika. I'd probably get rather upset if some idiot made a terrible Ōkami prequel/sequel, but thankfully the people over there seem to have enough respect for it. Can't say the same for Crash Bandicoot...

Also...linking to TvTropes? Silly Andwhy, don't you know that most of the people here hate TvTropes for some reason? Apparently it ruins lives, but I must be immune because this site causes more problems for me :p

That makes no sense. If you hated it then you would be happy that it was so short.

Maybe it was good, but he didn't like the fact that it was so short.

Which would be saying that he liked it, hence his statement doesn't make any sense.

Ah! Good point.

It'd be nice if kingtristan told us him(?)self, but I've seen this sort of situation alot and I doubt that would happen...

The statement works. The game really is too short and from what I've read there is not enough added to fix that. It still doesn't have enough time to fully explore its mechanics even a bit and is minimalistic. This makes it frustrating and it made me wish there was more. Not just more fetch quests, but different enemies and upgrades and additions to its core. Instead its an inadequete game as a result. For its original purposes that's fine, but this e shop version is not something you should have to pay for.

...or at least paying 5 dollars (in the u.s.) for it. Maybe if it was a dollar or two I'd be okay with it.

Have you ever gone to a tourist site and a squid named, you guessed it, John, is wearing a dunc- spike cap? Squidchan is a much better name... for a squid, of course.

(In the non translated version it's a dunce cap)

I noticed that too. Sure, NiCALIS didn't use "Huzzah" In the CS Ports/CS+, but they add it to another game? I am still waiting till Nicalis releases the update for CS where Huzzah replaces all mentions of Oh yeah :balrog:

I can't believe Balrog can't say Huzzah, but Pinky's father can.

Not really sure why it's even on the eShop, since, as has been said multiple times before, it was just a quick project done by Pixel that can be completed in half an hour and downloaded for free elsewhere, but whatever floats the boat, I suppose.

Ikachan was just too short of a game to be 5 bucks. The gameplay is like half an hour. Being developed by pixel, I expected a longer game, lol. I guess it goes to show how he's gotten better at what he does.

I also like how the translation literally says "Here's johnny!"
