Review: Wreck it Ralph

Good value and great selection of retro arcade games, that will challenge you in different ways, based on the Wreck it Ralph movie!

View on the App Store: Wreck-it Ralph - Disney

Features of Wreck it Ralph:

  • 5 different games to choose from all which need a different skill set.
  • Fix-it Felix, Hero's Duty, Sweet Climber, Turbo Time and Flight Command.
  • Now you get to play the games you were only able to watch before!
  • Great for fine motor skills, quick decisions, fast action and challenge.
  • Takes you back in time... all the 80's parents will love them!
The choice of 5 different games means you are sure to find a few that you really love and play.  These arcade style games have retro graphics and like the old video games are one off plays, once the game is over you need to start again...except it doesn't cost a silver coin every time!!

Fix it Felix is super fun, fasts moving...Ralph smashes the windows and you need to move Felix along using your hammer to fix it.  Once you get the hang of the left controller (I flick it) then it's much easier. It, of course, gets harder, as you start getting blocked from moving in different directions by closed shutters and window boxes!

Hero's Duty takes a bit to get your head around, but iPad lad (10) is fantastic at it and enjoys it.  It is a shooting game but you need to spin around in every direction to annihilate the invaders.  Great for kids and adults who like non stop fast action.

Sweet Climber is a tilt controlled game where Ralph climbs the candy tree.  Jump him from branch to branch collecting candy worth points and other sweets that act as power ups.  This is a tricky game mostly because of the intensity of the continuous play!

Flight command is a unique style arcade racing game, viewed from a really cool angle.  Move through obstacles, irradiate enemies and collect power ups...all this at record speed!

Turbo Time is a traditional style car racing game with 2 styles of controls.  You are the red car, stay on the track, collect the gold coins and drive over the high speed ramps for power boosts.  It seems that only with the power boosts you are able to win!  Fast action. 

All in all these games are fun, but they are challenging, better for older children and particularly for fast action loving kids who can make quick decisions and are happy with intense game-play.
