Q*bert - Atari Emulator

I think it's been a while since I've done something TRULY fanatical like play the Atari version of Q*bert.  Why, I hadn't even unzipped the muchsa file for it!  It's under 199, for those of you keeping score.  Guess they didn't think highly of it either.  But they've about as faithfully recreated the game within the confines of an 8K or 16K cartridge will allow... feels more like 8 to me.  A little light.  Also, every once in a while, the purple ball will bounce right off of the playing field!  Honest to God!  There's a couple extra empty rows of cubes that the bad guys get, apparently.
Anyway, as you can sort of see, I flipped the score.  A hell of a lot more work than I thought!  It took me to level 30, round 1 to do it, but you young kids will probably get there faster.  Learn from my mistakes.... my many, many mistakes.
