IMG Previews Q*Bert
11:17 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story
MacSoft continues their steady stream of ports of Hasbro titles, specifically a long list of 3D-enhanced Atari classics reborn. Q*Bert, much like Pong and Asteroids, has undergone a revolution in visuals but has kept much of the classic style of play which made it such a quarter-eating arcade staple.
We've published a preview of the game for your perusal, complete with a gallery of screen shots. Here's a sample:
In recent years Atari has licensed new versions of classic games like Pong, Breakout, Frogger, and Asteroids, and now Q*bert. So whatís new this time around? For starters thereís a story! Itís pretty simple: Q*bert lives with other goofy characters in an odd world of cube-shaped bricks, rather what youíd expect if you built a world out of lego bricks. Suddenly a great vortex appears and sucks up some of Q*bertís friends, one of whom is an obviously female Q*bert-like creature, named... well actually I donít know her name (heck, I didnít even Q*bert was male until she showed up!) Q*bert, being a gentlemanly sort of squish, embarks on a rescue mission. This reborn classic is expected to be released in the near future. Check out the preview for more details.
Okay, so itís a very simple story, but if it was good enough for Donkey Kong itís good enough for Q*bert.
