I popped along to Brick Lane, London, over the weekend where the Truman Brewery was housing an outdoor Wreck-It Ralph exhibition, named 8Bit Lane, that included some 8-bit art exhibits and a playable building. Yes, a building. Below are some photos of some of the objects I managed to track down and a brief account of how I got on.
You can also view more details on the official site here (find all 8 objects and get access to an exclusive behind the scenes trailer).
You then play what is essentially a flash game (with slightly poor controls) and must maneuver Fix-It Felix to repair all of the windows that Wreck-It Ralph has broken while avoiding the debris that he throws from the top of the building. The game itself it nothing too special and I had a few issues with it crashing — one brief time while first launching and again as I neared the end of the level – but the novelty of seeing the building digitally ‘come to life’ added to the experience greatly and I was glad I got a chance to pop along.
8Bit Lane was only open over last weekend, so if you want to see more of Wreck-It Ralph in the UK then you will have to wait until he finishes loading into cinemas on February 8th. I can only assume it was delayed in this country as a homage to the amount of time we had to wait for a game to be released back in the 8-bit era.
