Qbert Rebooted

OK, technically it's "Q*bert: Rebooted." But the 1980s kid in me doesn't care. This version for the Nexus Player has got the original game alongside some newfangled rebooted version that's OK, but just not the same.

So grab a fistful of quarters (eight of them, actually, to buy this game) and get a slice of pizza and settle down with this one for a few minutes of arcade nostalgia. (Kids, ask your parents. We used to have to leave the house to play video games.)
