    Synopsis:

    The Floras from Mario's garden are once again become deprived of sunlight because a large structure is blocking it's way. Upon tracing the source, it is caused by a large penthouse guarded by Fix-it-Felix Jr. Wreck-it-Ralph took this opportunity to form an alliance with Mario to help him destroy the penthouse once and for all. Fix-it-Felix was almost outnumbered until Gotcha Wrench, Eggplant Man, and Foreman Spike came to his aid to get in Mario's way as they always do. Players must choose a side. Are you here to fix or are you here to wreck?!

    Gameplay:

    The game is a puzzle platformer where the main gameplay offers two choices of goals. First is to fix things courtesy of Fix-it-Felix Jr. or to wreck things courtesy of Mario. The stage starts with half of the structures destroyed and the other half fixed. The objective is to fix or destroy all the structures depending on your choice of goal. The levels take place in the different parts of the penthouse and uses the stage design elements of Wrecking Crew. This means that each stage will include the following objects:

    1) Wooden Door - 1 smash to wreck or fix
    2) Marble Door - 3 smashes to wreck or fix
    3) Pipes - 1 smash to wreck or fix (can use to trap Felix or any Wrecking Crew antagonist for a short period of time)
    4) Ladders - 1 smash to wreck or fix
    5) Bombs - 1 smash to activate and destroys adjacent destructible objects (not fixable)
