Q*bert has always been a delight to play. It's one of those unique games that successfully combines two or more genres. In this case, the puzzle, platform and action genres. So it's translation from Parker Brothers was applauded by the Atari commutiy. Yet it's another one of those ports that leaves a little to be desired. Like Pac-Man, it's characters like eyes or shading, and consequently personality. And to my reccolection, the arcade Q*bert was the first videogame character to swear. Unfortunately, that funny interlude is missing too. :( But Q*bert is still welcome on any system, including the Atari 8-bit. By all means, hop onboard!
