I played this way back when, and I remember being so frustrated with this game. Great job recreating this early video game, Sir Nelson. I would've never thought of doing something like this. Being that the old school video games were so blocky and lacking in detail, LEGO is perfect to MOC these.
Grrr... a good year of childhood anger and frustration surfaced as soon as I saw this creation... this game huanted me for some time... it was way too hard for me to play!
That aside, I love the Atari 2600 days, and it was really cool to see Q-Bert in a LEGO creation! I like the way you made the cubes studless - really gave the feel of those glowing cubes I spent days falling off of while playing Q-Bert...
Nice Q-Bert too... I like how you made his nice 'lil nose most of all~

I have to be honest, I had never played, seen, or even heard of Q*Bert before you posted this. Although on the other hand the "cubes"(is that what they're meant to be called?) are really nice and the carrot is nice and inventive. So...
Besides having neither played the game or heard of it, it's a very nice moc.
edit: I just found a version of Q*Bert online and I played a little bit. Now I have to be perfectly frank- I stink at that game. Oh well, first time for everything...
