Recommended Posts

Welcome to round eleven of this 5200 HSC season!  Q*bert won the poll by two votes. Play using the default settings. Emulation is fine, as are custom controls. Pics preferred, but not required except for HSC wins and records.
 
The current HSC record for Q*bert was set by Northcoastgamer - 144,600 points.  Bust it if you can for a bonus point!

Impressive score, Cafeman.  I've been playing some more but can't seem to beat my last score.  I think I know who's going to win this round!

Does the difficulty max out on this one? How about the mazes, they must reset at some point, or does it start getting random?

Level 6 follows level 5's rules but it is at double speed. The difficulty doesn't seem to change after that, although some boards seem trickier due to the appearance of Sam / Slick and the number of discs each stage gives you. Level 9 is the highest level and will be repeated  after you beat its 4 stages. 

 

It's important to build up a bunch of extra Qbert, because to solve the Level 6 and higher cubes, you might need to jump off and sacrifice a life. I sacrifice a life if I'm close to solving it and there are no more discs and Coily appears -- it gives you a little break to focus on solving the color puzzle.
