Q*bert's Qubes has a substantial learning curve, but the game isn't half bad once you get the hang of it. The graphics however are disappointing. Instead of being solid in color, the sides of the cubes are rendered in pixelated patterns that are hard on the eyes. As with the first game, Q*bert is still missing his eyeballs, but at least your adversaries now hop smoothly from block to block. The bulk of the sound effects seem recycled from the first game. Q*bert's Qubes is more cerebral than your typical arcade game, and it won't appeal to most casual gamers for that very reason.
If you put the time into mastering the game it’s quite fun, but with so many other video games out there I’m not sure it’s worth the effort. For the most part, you should be able to pick up and play most any Atari 2600 game without spending hours figuring it out. Better games have bent that rule a bit, but Q*Bert’s Qubes is practically the opposite of that ideal.
