CuBert - How is it controlled?

Is it by the Accelerometer, touch, D-Pad....?

Is it a good recreation? Loved the game on Atari...

I used to hate this game when I was a kid. I was glad to see a port that I remembered, but I only have bed memories of this one. I'm sure it's great, though.

I want my quarter back.

You have to wonder how long this will last, since it's a copy and not the real deal (which was spelled with a Q). Do they have the sounds right in this one? That's key to the while Q-Bert experience.

You're absolutely right. In fact, that's not a copy. It's a 100% blatant rip-off (other than the name which as you correctly indicated was with a Q).

the screen is split into 4 quadrants of equal size

to move him, you just simply tap a quadrant. It's pretty responsive

it's fun ^_^

That's a-okay!
I think this has already been discussed in a few threads, but it doesn't look like it's Apple's job to worry about copyright infringement. It's up to the devs. Apple worries about Apple...they're not there to protect other companie's interests.....
