On one hand, Apple is making their devices pixel-proof and on the other, developers are combining those pixels for the bricked effect. Fix-it Felix Jr. is one such productsand as I promised, here is the full review.
Fix-it Felix Jr. is the free game from Disney for the promotion of their new movie Wreck-it Ralph. The movie’s hero is Ralph, who is the actual villain of this arcade game, we have on our hands. Ralph is a giant guy with a thing for climbing tall buildings and in this game we see him making his way up one. Unfortunately, each step of his means a broken window pane and as the good guy Felix, we have to make sure all of them are fixed.
The game-play occurs on a set of windows arranged in rows and columns. Since this is an arcade game, we have only two controls – the direction controls and a fix button. As you move about fixing panes, Ralph isn’t impressed and he attacks you with brick showers. As game progress, the number of broken panes and the frequency of brick rains increase with dangerous ducks crossing the screen. Some grateful occupants reward you with pie which renders you immune to bricks and are worth extra points also. You cannot always move in any direction as you please. You will be blocked by open window doors and gardening trays and you have to quickly think of alternate routes. Evade from bricks and ducks and when all windows are shining, you climb higher for the next level.
When you get bricks on your head for three times, the game is over and the number of fixed panes and total power-ups decide your final score. The pixelated graphics is in now way disabling but the controls sometimes gives you a slip. The background score is the classic arcade game type and the coarse sound effects are entertaining. Overall, this unique gameplay and nostalgic arcade controls are worth checking out.
