Coin-op Classic Q*bert Goes @!#?@! Mobile
July 24, 2014 – Los Angeles; – In celebration of his starring role
in the Pixels movie, Q*bert is appearing in a free-to-play mobile version of Q*bert: Rebooted.
The game is available today for both iPhone and iPad devices followed by Android versions in the coming weeks. Q*bert:
Rebooted is also offered on the Steam Platform, PlayStation PS4/PS3/Vita and Google TV.
optimized for touch controls, the isometric platform puzzle game featuring everyone’s favorite grawlix-spouting hero
is available in both a pixel-perfect classic 2D version and a re-imagined ‘Rebooted’ version with state-of-the-art
3D graphics and game play that features additional characters and achievements while staying true to the spirit of the original
concept. Both iterations are exciting ‘twitch’ games requiring keen puzzle solving skills and logic.
“Over the last year we have released Q*bert: Rebooted on various platforms except Mobile,
which we’ve always felt was a natural fit for the game in terms of audience and play mechanics,” stated Jamie
Ottilie, co-founder and CEO of Galaxy Pest Control. “Today I am delighted to announce that, together with the theatrical
release of the Pixels movie, we are also releasing Q*bert in the Apple App Store.”
in 1982 by Gottlieb & Co. Q*bert was critically-acclaimed and went on to become the one of the
most successful arcade games of all time. It inspired home versions, a variety of Q*bert merchandise,
and even an animated TV series.
Q*bert Rebooted takes the arcade classic and catapults
it into the 21st century 3D game play that takes full advantage of today’s technologies yet remains faithful to the
original Q*bert. As the title character, players jump around an isometric cube pyramid and convert each block’s color
while avoiding familiar adversaries Coily, Ugg, Slick, Sam, Wrong Way and Red Ball. Levels become progressively harder with
more enemies blocking your path and the tiles requiring multiple jumps to change to the required color. Featuring hexagonal
blocks instead of squares, Q*bert Rebooted introduces new enemies, playable characters, power-ups,
traps, gem collecting and characters, and new ways to play
Q*bert Rebooted highlights:
- 2 Fun Play Modes, Classic Arcade and Q*bert Rebooted!
- Coily and the rest of the crew are back with 3 New Enemies :- Homer, Uppercut and
- 30+ New Levels in 3D Rebooted Mode
- Earn Crazy Q*bert Variants like Q*zilla, Q*bot, Q*knight and more
- In game advertising opt out for $.99
- Double your Gems for $1.99
- One Easter Egg character
“Our goal has always been to take Q*bert to as many
platforms as possible, and today we are going mobile on iOS with Android set to follow soon after” added Robert van
Gool, co-founder and President of Gonzo Games.
Q*bert: Rebooted is a collaboration
between Galaxy Pest Control; its publishing label Sideline Amusements, Gonzo Games; LOOT Interactive and Sony Pictures Consumer
