COIN-OP ARCADE GAMING: Q*BERT'S QUBES [1983]

Like the pinball game Q*Bert's Quest, the sequel to the original called Q*Bert's Qubes wasn't seen in many arcades around the video game industry crash of 1983, but it got a home platform release for Atari 2600 and Colecovision (the latter being the better home gaming port).  

I'd just finished playing/recording this coin-op arcade gameplay tonight, the first two levels plus bonus rounds.  As you can see, the objective is totally different than the original with all new enemies but if you liked the original like I always have, it's addictive once you get the hang of it.
