In Ikachan, you play as a squid, and swim around interacting with other marine life such as anemones, starfish, clams, jawfish and more. Any game where you play as a squid is OK by me!

Fun fact: The sprites for Ikachan, Ironhead, and the blowfish were reused for a boss battle in Pixel’s most popular game, Cave Story.

Ikachan title screen music (my favorite song from the game)

So I made a remix of another Ikachan song.  The music in that game is just great.
