** While ''Rebooted'' was well-received on the mobile side, the console ports have notoriously unreliable controls, which can make it very easy to accidentally steer Q*bert off the side of the course.
** In a lesser example, the "Q*bert Classic" mode of ''Rebooted'' deletes all of Q*bert's speech samples from the original game, and also most of the game's music cues. It's been suggested that the former was an act of [[{{Bowdlerise}} bowdlerization]], to remove any profane-sounding speech samples... which they still managed to mess up, by leaving Ugg's and Wrongway's speech samples in, at least one of which can sound quite sweary.
