This is my first go at this fantastic game. Thanks Scalpel for proposing to play this one. Great to see you in the HSC... Welcome back!

 

By the way, Retro Gamer is running a front cover special article on the history of Qbert. Perfect timing!

Don't worry, you'll do a good score soon.

 

Don't hesitate to check the different video about Q*Bert. By the way, to avoid the snake, keep it close to you before taking the "elevator", the snakes will follow you and swoop ^^

 

Yes, I DO LIKE A LOT this game. It's a really huge classic game as Asteroid, Space Invaders and PacMan. Of course, PacMan and Space Invaders are more known and famous.

 

I play with the unit, for me the controll disk is Perfect! Play again ^^ :)

I love Q*Bert. (I know, shocking being that it's been my avatar for years.) I have just about every port of it and they all are challenging and enjoyable in their own way.

Like scalpel mentioned, you need to "bait" the snake towards one of the levitating disc platforms and jump on it shortly before the snake (Coily) pounces on you. He'll plunge to his demise while you are whisked away to the top of the pyramid. All other enemies will disappear as well. If not timed right and you jump on the disc too soon Coily won't leap off and will instead follow you up to the top.

I find the control disc of the INTV not to be not a bad mode of control. At least you don't have to hold the controller at an angel to have Q*Bert jump in the correct directions, like you do on most other ports.

Until now very bad, around 7.000 was my best. I am sure I can get a better score, so I did not take a picture. But there is time left :)

I forgot that score!

And you won that round, congrats. Lets see what comes this time. 50000 would be nice and I'm enjoying the game, I had little experience with the nes, atari 2600 and 7800 versions.

And if he reaches 75.000 you say: "Sure you can do 100.000". Reminds me to something :P

Hello,

 

This is my latest score in Qbert:

 

Oscar G.- 32,065 points

 

Does anyone have some hints for level 3? I find quite confusing the fact that one jumps and the colour of the square reverts to original ... :? Thanks.
