I just realized that I haven’t uploaded Monikon’s Mini StarCraft to icyHell yet. In the previous posts about this, I just linked to the creator’s webpage. However, that website is gone now, thus I will host the file here for everyone to download.

For those who don’t know about this yet, this is a very small version of StarCraft Brood War that can be put in your USB drive so you can take StarCraft wherever you go! You can even play on Battle.net if you use a valid CD-key.

Sorry to everyone who had been trying to access icyHell.net over the past 2 weeks. A bunch of files got infected with some malicious code and Firefox/Google had blocked people from visiting this site. I have hopefully cleaned up everything, and this problem should not happen again. icyHell.net has been resubmitted to Google for a review, and I think they will remove us as an Attack Page in a few days.
