Can you still recall some of the amazing games that people that you were used to playback in the 90’s? There’s nothing more memorable than those games that made you feel alive, that challenged you and made you think that the technology is at its apogee – how funny it sounds these days, don’t you think?

There’s nothing more memorable than such games, but let me assure you that they aren’t completely gone! You still can enjoy such games and be sure that I am not talking about emulators – that’s a completely different story, so enter here to find out more on this topic. I am referring to official Android releases of classic games that first debuted at least 15 years ago. They were a success then and now, developers expanded for their mobile releases, making them even more interesting.

For example, you can enjoy everyone’s favorite Q-Bert in a rebooted version! You remember it too, don’t you? The original Q-Bert signaled the major shift in arcade games from 2-D to 3-D. It was unlike anything players had experienced up to that point , so no one questioned its success. In fact, I would make no mistake by daring to say that this is the most successful arcade game of all times. It inspired home versions, an animated TV series, as well as a variety of Q*bert merchandise, so why wouldn’t you get even more these days as well?

The game Q*bert: Rebooted consists of bouncing a character, Q-Bert, around geometric tiles in order to turn them the same color while avoiding all those familiar adversaries that you know: Sam, Coily, Ugg, Slick, Wrong Way, as well as Red Ball. The character took advantage of new video card technology to bounce, slither, and hop around the screen and there is no secret that all levels become progressively harder with more enemies blocking your path and making your mission even more difficult to accomplish.

However, Q*bert: Rebooted is not a simple remake, but it is even better than the original. The app version of Q-Bert offers more levels, more play, hexagonal blocks instead of squares, and the game is now optimized for touch screen control. And don’t forget about another great aspect of Q-bert: I am talking about the censored speech balloon that appears above his head exactly at the moment of his death, but I don’t want to tell you more as you will see that by yourself!

Take Q*bert: Rebooted with the help of this Google Play link. Try it out; it won’t cost you a thing, but you will definitely have some fun!
