This is a game in the glorious Technos series of games, in which people beat the hell out of each other while doing various things. Think Nintendo World Cup on ice, I guess. Except with a lot more beatings, and variety and stuff. You’re the hockey team at school, and you’re playing all the other sports teams at school. It sounds odd, but who cares - when you beat a team you get the option of using their uniforms, which also includes the ability to use their special attacks. It’s a hell of a lot of fun, believe you me. As you can well imagine, beating your opponent unconscious is one of life’s little pleasures, and this game manages to faithfully reproduce that same experience. And the first game is soooo much fun, because you can easily kick the AI’s ass. Who says only challenging games are fun?
Oh, and this is the game that was almost going to be released in the States as “Crash n the Boys - Ice Challenge”. In case you were dying to know.
Around 15 years ago, an English translation for Ike Ike! Nekketsu Hockey-bu was created by the group Disconnected Translations. Unfortunately, for most of that time, contemporary Famicom emulators have been unable to play it due to a game-breaking bug that was introduced by the patch; namely, once a goal is scored, the game freezes while trying to display the scoreboard. This patch fixes that bug, among others, making the game 100% playable on current emulators (or at least FCEUX, which is what it was tested on).

Thank you so much for this. I MUCH prefer the original faithful translation, not some ridiculous “Crash” or “Ric” crap. But that had a critical bug, so I was very disappointed. And then your patch came. And holy crap, it works great.
This game is actually pretty tough, if you ask me (because the final two boss teams are tough). This is probably the 2nd or 3rd toughest Nekketsu game for NES – the first being Kakutou Densetsu, and maybe 2nd being Nekketsu Basketball.
Version 1.00 Recommended - Yes
