Check out this trailer for Minitroid, a cool, fan-made Metroid game featuring a Super Deformed Samus Aran:
Here’s another clip that shows a bit more of what to expect from the game itself, including some sweet original music and some really cool enemy designs:
The Minitroid Tech Demo is brought to you by Construct, a three-person team that includes programmer Tokinsom, artist Betatronic, and music composer Jamie Billings and is a free download available at the Metroid Database.

My friends got me this super sweet Donkey Kong Jenga for Christmas:
"How High Can You Get?"
The game is played in one of two ways: either by following the traditional rules of the game or by using the included Spinner to play Donkey Kong-style!
"Play classic Jenga or use the Spinner and play custom Donkey Kong rules!"
Up to 4 players take turns on the Spinner which determines how many Jenga block “Girders” to remove from the stack and how many Girders the player’s Mario climbs at the end of each turn.
Each of the 4 Mario game pieces are attached to pegs which can then be inserted into the holes at the ends of the Jenga blocks, giving the illusion of Mario climbing the construction site!
"Donkey Kong Jenga Girders, Mario, Pauline, and DK!"
The goal is to reach the top of the stack and save Pauline from that crazy ape, Donkey Kong, yet again. The player that reaches the top or is closest to the top when the stack falls wins.
Players can strategically remove Girders out from under the other players’ Mario game pieces to keep their opponents from reaching the top first!
"Donkey Kong + Jenga = Donkey Kong Jenga"
A brilliant combination really, marrying these two classic games together!

"Panda Poets. Fond of spelling bees, apparently."
Naturally, I had to pick it up.
