Q-Bert is back! For veteran arcade gamers that should warm the cockles of your hearts and hearken you back to the when space was being invaded and Street Fighter was tl bad guy outside the arcade that you tried to avoid, ago, Q-Bert resurfaced as a NES and Game Boy game, but this SNES incarnation really shows Q-Bert's colors.
Although Q-Bert is a furry alien, he's really cute, and he only swears occasionally. As Q-Bert you hop around the tops of different geometric shapes that have checkerboard surfaces. You must change the color of the surfaces to a target color. Sometimes it can take up to five hops on a single surface to display the target color. Sound simple? If so, well, the concept IS simple. However, this version tosses mind-boggling programming and great tunes at you, too.

First off, I must say that I am a big fan of the original Q*bert (I played it for 40 hours straight once). This enhancement of the original would be extremely cool, if the controls and interface weren't so poor. It quickly becomes frustrating when our on-screen hero fails to respond to the appropriate joypad moves. Too bad.
Wow, Q*Bert! At first my thoughts flashed back to the horrible control problems that plagued previous attempts but with four different ways of setting up the jumping in this version, it is good to say that NTVIC has a great playing game. The new enemies add more variety to the game play. Nice backgrounds!
I can't help thinking back to old days when plain stacked cubes were high end graphic technology. Anyway, this cart looks and plays like the classic coin-op with a few new twists. The backgrounds are awesome and Mode effects are evident almost everywhere. Controls take getting used to but the game is still fun.
Q*bert is not happy, to be sure! The 16-bit version of this sad tale is lacking in serious game play! Sure, the playing field is cool, and the options are better, but you are talking some serious repetition here! Yikes! Boring quickly becomes the first thing on your mind as you see the same thing over and over and over and over...
