    Hi, I enjoyed Pat Larocque's Q*Bert performance so much that I just had to do my own. The tough stuff begins at about 90K when the tile resets if jumping on it once too often. Done on January 17, 2019 because it's too cold outside to do anything there.
    Final score: 108,650
    Set up: :19
    Run begins: 24:10

    You being a fan of inverts, this will be interesting if you don't already know:
    For the millions of insect species out there, that we all kinda refer to as "bugs", there are very, very few of what are called "true bugs".
    So most things we call bugs are not, in fact, bugs at all.
    Lol, the reason it's(sorta)relevant-
    One of the defining characteristics is a proboscis, like Q-Bert!
    Not all insects with a proboscis are "true bugs", butterflies, etc, but it is a required characteristic.

    Accepted, Nice Rollage!!!
    This feels like a Good Day for a Great Day!!!

    I was playing this last night and I can't get over that 40k-50k hump. I get really scattered and forgetful. Still love this game despite how wacky it gets. this is also one of the best 2600 arcade ports in my opinion.
