    I know I'm supposed to embrace the challenge, improve my skills and learn to love the game but considering my feelings for Q*Bert are the same as John73's feelings for Burgertime it's going to be a long 2 weeks

    12:20am - been home from work for nearly 1 hour - need to be up in 7 hours - do I play a game? oh how I love Q*Bert

    For those that didn't see the "news" posts - Warren Davis, the programmer of Q*Bert is coming to Australia for the Gala-Gala event at Pincadia at the end of this month - we'll be getting Q*Bert marquees printed up for him to sign - PM me if you're interested - should have pricing in the next 24 hours (sorry to side track and put a sales spiel in the MGL).

    Been soooo busy lately I haven't had time to practice Q*Bert - I'm considering if I want to go for a TG top 10 score on this, but it's in the vicinity of 20 hours and I think I'm too old to play a game that long - we'll see what happens...... Will put up a mediocre score shortly on MAME, but will more than likely try to play Q*Bert at Pincadia to get more practice sitting at a real machine prior to the event in 3 weeks time.

    Always loved this game! So hard to find them with working “kickers”.
    The Atari 2600 had a pretty decent port for the time until Colecovision came out with so many of their great conversions.

    My old cat used to love watching me play Q*Bert on the Atari...she'd watch him bounce around the cubes and try and catch him

    Quick attempt after an 11 hour night shift although I don't tend to play this much better when I'm wide awake. Took 5 attempts just to start jumping in the directions I actually wanted to.
