I'm sure many of you have heard of the movie Wreck-It Ralph, but did you know Disney made an actual game based on the fictional game in the movie? The game is Fix-It Felix Jr., with Wreck-It Ralph as the bad guy, and its actually a decent game. Basically, you just move up the tower fixing windows while Wreck-It Ralph throws objects at you.
You can definitely see that they are parodying the old Donkey Kong arcade game with this one. You have a large ape/ape-like man that destroys buildings, and a carpenter (which Mario was in Donkey Kong) trying to scale the building toward the villain. Not to say the gameplay is identical, but you can definitely see the influence conceptually.
play the game here.
