Q*Bert: Rebooted is a very fun game. I prefer the mouse controls personally, and it works great!
I never played Q*Bert in an arcade, but I've seen a few videos of it, and can say that the classic version plays pretty closely to the original. From what I can tell most of the sound effects are there, and it looks just like the original!
The new version is fun too though! It's the same basic game idea, but with a few added elements. There's gems, which you can use to buy new characters, there's stars, which are required to unlock new levels, and there's new enemies! The stars however did not recieve the best implementation they could have. You have you complete challenges to get stars, and there's 3 challenges per level. You have to play the level 3 seperate times to get them all, and get the stars for them, such as score 2000 points, or beat the level in under 1:10.
The enemies are interesting too, you have the classic ones all in a new style, and then you have the new ones. One is a boxing glove that punches you away, it feels a tad random when it punches you, but it's still a good enemy (frustrating though!). The next is a treasure that you chase around, I believe if you catch it you get 70 gems but I could be wrong.
The levels in the rebooted version get extremely hard (at least for me) later on. I'm still having fun though.
The final thing is the achievements, while I like collecting achievements for games, I feel like in this one it's random. I earned the achievement for winning the rebooted version even though I didn't beat it quite yet, the same happened for collecting all the characters.
This is a pretty good game for what it is though. It's a great way to bring back Q*Bert!
