Beggars can’t be choosers. So even though Disney’s Wreck-it Ralph came out in theatres nearly a year ago, we’re happy to see the game adaptation finally appear in the Windows Phone Store. It’s nearly identical to the iOS game that’s been out for quite some time, so let’s go check it out.
Have you seen the movie? You should, it’s pretty good (this coming from a 25 year old man). If you like video games you’ll probably really enjoy Wreck-it Ralph. The game plays off the “Game Central Station” theme found in the movie. With Wreck-it Ralph on Windows Phone you’re basically getting a bunch of addictive mini-games inside one game. Here are the mini-games:
- Fix-it Felix Jr.
- Hero’s Duty
- Sweet Climber
- Turbo Time
- Flight Command
We won’t dive into what’s unique about each mini-game (we’ll save that for Paul’s review), but quickly let’s look at a few of the mini-games.
Fit-it Felix Jr. could be considered the “main” game inside Wreck-it Ralph. Ralph runs around breaking windows and you as Felix Jr. will be responsible to repair the building. The 8-bit graphics are pretty awesome and might give you a little splash of nostalgia as you play.
Sweet Climber is a fun take on the “Doodle Jump, but it’s been Disney-fied. You take control of Ralph in the endless climbing game as you jump from candy cane branch to candy cane branch. You’ll be using the accelerometer inside your phone to power the tilt controls.
You’ll need to unlock the other mini-games by playing the Fix-it Felix Jr. game.
Disney is offering the game for $0.99 for Windows Phone 8 devices. There is no free trial, but it’s hard to go wrong for just a buck.
