    Default Mega Q*bert (full game)

    Almost 6 years ago I made a prototype of a Mega Drive version of Q*bert, but dropped it due to problems with the code structure. I decided to rewrite the game from scratch this year and now it's done.

    Mega Q*bert is a new game for Sega Mega Drive/Sega Genesis. Featured are 2 different game modes. Mega mode contains 80 levels to beat, often filled with new irregular blocks that make things harder and more complex enemies, while Arcade mode is a recreation of original arcade game (based on the NES iteration, to be more exact). Both modes offer simultaneous cooperative gameplay.

    Although I lack the equipment to test the game on the real console, it has been reported that aside from minor visual noise in select instances the game runs correctly on actual hardware and the gameplay itself is completely clean.

    Thumbs up

    This is fantastic news! Q*bert was one of my favourite games to play on the Atari 2600! You did a great job with the visuals and presentation! Best of all, I can set up the control scheme for the D-Pad! Thanks for porting the game to the SEGA Genesis Jaklub!

    This is quite a surprise! Thank you very much for your work here. I'm a big Q*Bert fan. Unfortunately I don't have an SD or flash cart.. so this might have to wait until someone does a cart for this...
    Come to think of it, I wonder if you could work with Serega to get this fully produced and earn some money form it.

    Sweet, a new version of Q*bert to play. Never was really good at this game, but I still liked playing it in the arcade, on NES, or the GBC version (which I own for this and NES).

    Thanks for posting. Quick update (1.1) uploaded, includes an important bugfix, a couple of level design tweaks and some additional alterations for PAL version. If any important bugs are found in this one, I'll try to fix them ASAP.

    Right now the game is stuck with original Q*bert characters and I haven't yet decided if I will eventually do any changes to that. I don't want to earn money from it in it's current form.

    Game looks and feels awesome. Like a professional release, pretty well finished and rounded.

    If you are going to keep doing versions, one with bigger sprites, more like early megadrive games, would be sweet.

    Awesome, if you ever decide on making a physical release, I'm buying.

    Great job, it feels like a release title!

    i completely suck at Qbert, but it's cool to have such a fine port.

    +1 also here. The only criticism I can think of is why, just why, someone who spends hours or months of homebrew console development doesn´t even own a spare one (with an everdrive at least), hehe.
    thanks!

    chilled, The EverDrive isn't the best test platform to test homebrew. It works 99% with 1% been a very big thing if you are to test a commercial project.
    This for the current EverDrive because the old ones are not good at all to test homebrew projects. Maybe he wants the best hardware to test his stuff and not a EverDrive.
    Don't dream, play Dreamcast!

    Right now I'm not planning to make any updates beyond bugfixes, but this isn't certain and might change in future. I don't have any specific plans right now.

    I just haven't purchased a flashcart; not very experienced with buying things internationally.

    I have never ever played this game, I'm looking forward to trying this out! Also, I like how the control type can be changed; I really wish someone would alter the control scheme for Snake, Rattle And Roll in this fashion, I find it unplayable on the MD as it is now.
