Crash 'n the Boys: Ice Challenge, known as Ike Ike! Nekketsu Hockey-bu: Subette Koronde Dairantou in Japan, is a sports/fighting game (focused on ice hockey) for the Nintendo Entertainment System released in 1992 and developed by Technos. The game was only released in Japan. A planned North American version was cancelled for unknown reasons, yet it was previewed in Nintendo Power V45. The game was later released on the Wii Virtual Console in 2009 exclusively in Japan.
There are four game modes: 1 Player Scenario puts the player in the story mode, building up the team and playing through tournaments; 2 Player Scenario is the same as the first but Player 2 is the goalkeeper; 2 Player Taisen has the two players in a Vs. Mode; and 4 Player Taisen pits Players 1 and 2 against 3 and 4 in the Vs. Mode where Players 2 and 4 are the goalies.
Each character on each team has his own stats: Power, Speed and Weight. Each team also has their own special abilities.
The game also supports a password system for saving and continuing Scenarios.
Though the object of the game is to score more goals than the opposing team, the rules within the game differ from regular hockey rules. For example, a player can throw the puck into the air to another teammate.
The 8 teams in the game consist of characters of the same design as seen in Super Dodge Ball and River City Ransom. Because of that, one of the teams the player faces is the same team from Super Dodge Ball. That team is appropriately named "Dodge Ball".
