Iconic Arcade Character Q*bert Heading to Mobile in 'Q*bert Rebooted'

One of the biggest video game stars of the '80s, Q*bert, is getting a modern reboot for mobile devices called Q*bert Rebooted, Polygon reports. You may recall the original game had you guiding an orange, spherical character down a mountainside of cubes in an effort to highlight each cube by stepping on it while avoiding enemies like a springy snake and gremlins that will reverse your cube highlighting. It's a classic, in its own way, so how do you reboot a classic like that for gamers in 2014? Hexagons of course. Yep, in Q*bert Rebooted the cubes are replaced with hexagons for even more sides of fun...
