Fix It Felix, Jr. is a platformer video game from the film Wreck-It Ralph. Several versions of the game were released: two online versions, an Apple iPod/iPad/iPhone app, and a promotional arcade cabinet.

Gameplay[]

Fix-it Felix Jr.'s gameplay revolves around playing as Felix, repairing windows that have been destroyed by Ralph on an endless apartment building from the bottom up. Felix can also gain extra points by collecting pies on some windowsills, and must also dodge incoming birds and falling objects from Ralph, which will damage Felix and make him lose a life.

Homebrew versions[]

Due to the great success of the movie, several versions of the game have been developed, none of them official. In 2014, Airwalk Studios made a version for the Genesis/Mega Drive; only twenty-five cartridges have been distributed. A version for the Atari 2600 called "Fix-It Felix Sr." was also developed.
