Don’t we all remember this one fondly, from our youth? I can’t even tell you how many dimes I pumped into the Fix-It Felix Jr. cabinet down at Litwak’s Family Fun Centre, circa 1982.
And now it’s back. You can play the original, Tobikomi 8-bit classic on the official Wreck-It Ralph site and see just why Fix-It Felix Jr. was called a Donkey Kong beater. Take that, you damned dirty ape.
Okay, either that, or it’s a new tie-in game modelled after 80s coin-ops, featured in the upcoming Wreck-It Ralph, online to play now and soon set to appear in cabinet form around the US.
I’m going to get some practice in so I can seem like an expert if I find one in my local cinema foyer.
