Description of J-Bird

Before Windmill Software and CHAMProgramming, Orion Software was one of the first game developers that specialized in creating PC "clones" of well-known arcade games, usually from the extensive catalogs of Atari, Taito, or William. Lack of originality or official license notwithstanding, their games are excellent conversions of famous classics that, surprisingly enough, often look and play better than official PC ports.

Aside from great gameplay, Orion games are also notable for being coded with a built-in timer - which means they work at the right speed even on modern computers. Kudos to the designer Greg Kuperberg for having such foresight.. it's not so often you find a 1983 game that doesn't need to be slowed down :-) If you can't get enough of Q*Bert, Pac-Man, or Paratrooper, check out these excellent classics that truly stand the test of time.

A clone of a classic Arcade Game!
Has Qbert game pattern, but with a different character.

The play arena is very good... But that is not to say it is the same thing. Playability is a major ingredient. Playability is to be checked. Do not know.

Qbert was a favorite and a demanding game.
This one should be so, and deserves to be tried out..
