Q~Bubba is a Q*Bert clone. Hop on blocks to change their colors or hop on dice to change their values. The soft drink powerup and green ball that freezes enemies help make levels easier to complete, but they are still quite a challenge as Springy the Snake, and Sam Spider chase down Q~Bubba in the harder levels while Thop changes cubes back to their last value. Q~Bubba is a fun, nostalgic flashback back to 1982, but a 1982 where it isn't Q*Bert - it's the embarrassing cousin - Q~Bubba.
Q~Bubba claims to be a distant cousin to Q*Bert. However there's no proof of such claims and Q~Bubba has been known to make many other claims such as his ability to speak seven different languages including Pig Latin and Klingon although no one has ever heard Q~Bubba speak any language but his native tongue. Q~Bubba is a clone of the original Q*Bert but Q~Bubba is able to defend himself from attackers using a gas attack. Q~Bubba must have fuel for the gas attack and that fuel comes in the form of soda pops that he can collect. With just one soda pop, he can launch a gas attack that temporarily paralyzes enemies in his immediate vicinity.
Q~Bubba also claims to be quite a gambler although he always seems to need money. As a reference to his supposed gambling, there are levels that include dice and require multiple contacts to set the dice to the correct values. This makes for variation that makes the familiar playing board much more challenging and interesting. Of course there is no gambling - Q~Bubba just likes dice.
Twelve levels of four rounds each provide hours of fun as Q~Bubba runs from and sometimes gases Springy the Snake, Sam Spider, Thop, and Chuck the Crab. Naturally the familiar bouncing balls are also present to help encourage Q~Bubba to stay alert on the move. Enjoy!
