B*Bert rebooted offers both the classic game itself and Q*bert: Rebooted. Both are similar, you jump on blocks and they change colour. Change the colour of all the blocks and the level’s complete.

Still, the gameplay is excellent and it definitely will put a smile on the face of nostalgic old gamers like me.
