Jay Plays Q*Bert

This week’s episode is Jay Plays Q*Bert by Sony Pictures Television. The arcade classic includes familiar gameplay along with new landscapes and collectible characters.

Q*Bert is a personal favorite that I fondly remember playing as a kid in arcades and at home on my Atari 2600. The character was so popular that he even got his own mini cartoon episodes on Saturday Supercade back in 1983-84. The mobile game seems to keep the spirit of the original but be prepared to get bombarded with ads unless you remove them for a $2.99 one-time purchase.
