Fix Felix Jr. is a real game
Earlier this week, Disney made the brilliant marketing move to release the debut trailer for its upcoming animated featureWreck-it-Ralph, which is filled with tons of video game character cameos and references, during E3. If you liked the trailer, you better prepare yourself for some more Disney awesomeness!
The developers working for Disney’s website have created a real and playable version of Fix it Felix Jr., the game in which the film’s protagonist stars in as the antagonist.
As you’d expect, it’s a Donkey Kong style, 80’s 8-bit inspired arcade game, in which Ralph smashes up an apartment building, as Felix fixes it.
In all honesty, the game is a lot of fun and actually provides more of a challenge than I thought it would, as those damn Duck Hunt (at least they look like the ones from Duck Hunt) ducks keep killing me. Seriously, they’re far more dangerous than the rubble barrage that Ralph throws at you.
I'm just trying to fix some windows and then they come flying at me. What did I ever do to them?
I really wouldn’t mind paying to download this onto my 360 or 3DS. Hell, if arcades were still a thing, this’d make for a great cabinet!
After spending about 2 hours playing the game, I can proudly say that my personal best is making it to Level 27 with a high score of 127,800 points.
Can any of you g1s beat that?

Why, thank you!
OH NOES! Somebody is much better than me at Donkey Kong (well, besides Steve Wiebe and Billy Mitchell, of course)! I gotta get back to that!
your much better then me a fix it felix jr I suck at it need to practice, but my high score in Donkey Kong is 274,300 the games fell very similar don't they
That's pretty neat. I like how the game not only is playable, but also lets viewers feel what it is like to be a player in that world. It might make viewers identify more with Ralph's plight by setting them against him first. I think they should have put those cutscenes and sound effects in the game, and given the "press spacebar" screen an attract mode first or something. Still, it's pretty cool!
Alright, Mr. Conway, I have accepted your challenge and I have trumped your score.
Level 43 with a score of 221,400! http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e320/Altair0115/hiscore.jpg
This game is more fun than I thought - though the music gets annoying after a while, it's basically a variation of Let's Get Together(Yeah, Yeah, Yeah).
On a completely unrelated note, "becomng a thing" is now a popular phrase at ScrewAttack.com. WUT
Also, you're ON for that highscore! My personal best in Donkey Kong is 104,200!
This game opens up an error in the movie. The Fix it Felix Jr Arcade cabinet has 2 buttons "Jump" and "Fix" while the game only uses one button "Fix"
"I really wouldn’t mind paying to download this onto my 360 or 3DS. Hell, if arcades were still a thing, this’d make for a great cabinet!"
So someone is one the same page as me I take it then? And yes, Disney please release this as a 3DS download to promote the movie. Maybe if we're lucky and the movie actually turns out to be good, there might be a demand to defictionalize Ralph and Felix even further.
LOL If this movie is gonna be anything like this game, I'm really, really, really gonna enjoy it. =D
This game is surprisingly challenging AND good! Makes me yern for the old arcade days.
I can't wait for this movie!
Reached level 17. Very enjoyable game! I can't wait till the movie comes out!
Good shit. Imma play.
