Over the years,Q'Bert has been king of the hill on the NES, the SNES, and many computer gaming platforms. Now he's moved to the Game Boy's block with 16 levels of high-steppin' action.

Optically Amusing

Like his predecessors, the Game Boy Q'Bert has to jump on all of the blocks in a pile, avoiding his enemies and changing the blocks to a designated color. And there's the rub: Color. On the tiny monochrome screen, this game is even more graphically challenging. It can be hard to keep the top of the blocks straight.

Hats off to the designers of Game Boy Q'Bert, because this version is nicely rendered (right down to Q' Bert's little snout). Q'Bert's nimble, and that's what counts. He hops the way you tell him to, and a Straight or Diagonal option lets you select the most comfortable method of control.

A cool soundtrack hits just the right tone, with bebop-pin' music and hip-hoppin' sound effects.

TipTop Action

This game will keep gamers of all skill levels busy for a good long while. Q'Bert is top of the heap.

ProTips:

  • The farther you advance, the more complicated the pattern of blocks. Press Pause when you start a new level to see the layout.
  • When Colly is chasing you, lead him to an edge near a spinning disk. Just when he's about to nab you, hop onto the disk and ride it to the top. Coily will fall off and all of your enemies will disappear.
