The game was called ''Fix-it Felix'' and while it was a modest hit it got many complaints for being too difficult and having unnecessary adult elements thrown in. To deal with this: Tobikomi altered the game with a more family friendly tone and more easy difficulty.

This resulted in ''Fix it Felix Jr.'' known today as a classic 1980s arcade game, made in 8-bit graphics. The story itself is rather simple:

* EvilIsPetty: Ralph's motivation becomes this when you realize that All he really had to do was take his stump somewhere else or move to another forest. Averted in the original ''Fix it Felix'' game where it was revealed that Ralph's family and friends were also destroyed along with his home, which is much more understandable.
