What versions are better? What is your favorite? I never really played this game until now, and it is definitely addicting.

The problem for the most part comes with the collision detection appears to be handled hardware style here, instead of via the software. In Q*Bert, the player (and enemies) hops to each square, and there is supposed to be some give as to which is and what is not a kill for Q*Bert. For example, go watch any YouTube video for Q*Bert (arcade) would be the best place to see it.

You mean someone should do a Q*BERT NEW VERSION ? :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

 

Actually, I played just right now, and for me, the Intellivision version is almost perfect ! Sound is great (especially the R4 level), to play is great too (I use my Intellivision "peritel" version to play). Maybe we could do something better for the graphics ? I don't know.

Yes, the collision detection on the arcade is more nuanced. I think it may keep the position of each sprite in 3-D space, so that you only collide with a baddie if you both are over the same square at the same time.

 

The Intellivision version only checks if the sprites overlap each other on the screen in any way.

I'm having a lot of problems adjusting to the collision detection.

It's very different than the arcade version and the colecoVision version.

You know what would be awesome? If the HSC hosted a game, preferably an arcade/action one, that did not require the hideous action buttons. That would make for a Merry Christmas.

 

Do you know any game like that? ;)

Hmm... I was thinking something a bit more festive. Perhaps a game that is themed for the season? I don't know...
