41 Games: Ittle Dew

You can do worse for a tongue-in-cheek tribute to Link's Awakening than Ittle Dew. It even manages an amusing twist in its short run time. It falls neatly into that set of games that you shouldn't necessarily go to any great lengths to acquire and play, but if it's sitting in your backlog or you're just in the mood for a quirky 2D Zelda experience, it's a pleasant enough way to while away a couple hours.

One word of warning, though: setting up a controller isn't quite as painless as it should be, and you rebind keys at your own risk--the keybindings are stored in a registry entry and aren't easily reverted if you mess it up.
