Hello,

Are there any Atari 2600 Programmers who would like to tackle the "Fix-It Felix Jr." Atari 2600 game? "Fix-It Felix Jr." is a fictional old school arcade game created for the new Disney Film "WRECK-IT RALPH" and Disney has released Flash versions of the "Fix-It Felix Jr." game on line to play.

This game is Screaming for an Atari 2600 Cart Release.

With graphics like that I think it's screaming NES or Genesis..

I appreciate your enthusiasm.

Personally, I would rather see game programmers spending their precious time on developing their own original games.

True! The game itself looks pretty generic-- I'm not sure how many other games feature a building with windows, but "2600 Spiderman" comes to mind for one. So what we could do is create a sort of knock-off of "Fix-It Felix Jr.," such as a window-washing game. Birds fly by and poop on the windows, so Wendell the window-wiper has to go up and down the side of the building to wipe the windows clean. You have to avoid open windows with people looking out (because they don't like getting a face full of window-cleaning spray), and on higher levels you have to watch out for things like falling flower pots that were knocked out the windows by cats trying to catch the birds as they fly by.

They should also make a crippled NES version. That would bring some real retro feeling :)

And maybe someday it will even make it into MAME.

Crazy Climber and Gangster Alley come to mind.

It also kinda has an Imagic's Beauty and the Beast vibe to it.

It's a little different from the online version. And both appear to be different from the arcade version.

So in other words, it's exactly like a classic video game. ;)

Can't go back and edit, but Rampage also fits that category.

It also has iCADE support! Joystick to move, bottom red button for the hammer and bottom white button for pause.

Posted this in the other thread, but this is the first Vid of the actual game that I've seen. Seems a bit different from the flash version

I wish the version in the cab would leak out!
I really dig this game,
I would love to play it in one of my cabs.

In case you haven't seen, there's an awesome fake 80's commercial for the Fix-It Felix Jr. arcade machine.

They have updated the movie website as well. Now there are also flash versions of Hero's Duty and Sugar Rush.

They need to release these games for real!

The aesthetics of the original game totally resembles early NES games (although Ralph and Felix use way too many colors), but I believe the mechanics could work decently on the 2600.

Ralph is always above Felix, so he could be drawn with both players and retain his massive physical dimensions. Falling bricks could be done with one player and its missile, and Felix would use the other player, and possibly its missile. The building would have to be done with the playfield, which could make the representation of broken windows tricky.

Please make one! :)

They built a few for promotional purposes only. Some have actual working games in them, others just run in demo mode. They had a working one at Classic Gaming Expo this summer.

Ah, I see :)
Hopefully the movie will be a hit so they pop a few of these out on locations. I wonder if it uses actual hardware... That would be sweet if it is an actual jamma PCB inside!
