and good news for Red Ant, I figured out a way to fix the issue with the thumbnails, so he doesn't have to manually edit all the new ones anymore.

Thanks! I can instead spend the time making descriptions.

It looks like ~100 new games were added. Very manageable number for a week.

That game Zwill is stupid.  I just spent an hour going through the game collecting all the stars and cheeses, when it turns out that the high score is based on how many enemies you jump on.  Basically, you could just go back and forth between the same screens, re-jumping on the same enemies to get a super high score

Qbert 04n on classic the snake disappears. I still need to try the other modes for this one

Qbertarcade is the classic version and it allows you to press the wrong direction and fall :D

Qbert04 has the ice level which may be the the same as the mode in 04n

QbertJS is the arcade

Qberts

js will not let you fall off the cliff, but the arcade version will. other then that they are the same.

04 offers the same arcade that arcade is and in the 2004 selection under classic the snake comes out and disappears.  The other 2004 modes work

04n only has 2004 and once again under classic the snake comes out and disappears.  The other 2004 modes work

I played it. Yeah, too bad the scoring sucks on that one. It's up to you if you want it deleted: your trophy.

Which Q-Bert games should stay? 4 games that are essentially the same seems like overkill.

Same with the 4 Xtreme Shell games - the only difference between those 4 is the difficulty level.

There's quite a few other duplicates as well in this batch of games. I file 13d three more Break-Out and Tetris clones already.

Zwill should be deleted.  It's not really much of a challenge when you can attain a high score so easily. 
In the game, when you reach the top, there is a balloon that supposedly takes you to another level, but it's required 160 cheeses and 130 stars, which isn't possible cause there aren't that many in the game to collect

 QbertArcadeGC  should stay.  It works and it is the original game.

Gone.

BTW, you have to try ZCP2002. It's funny as hell.

Okay, I'll probbaly get to removing the others in a day or so.

Most of the Yeti games wouldn't finish loading or were duplicates, so they are cleaned up now.

There are three Quickbrick games, but they are all legit, and each one is fun ...

Quickbricktpp - Tournament Edition
Quickbrickppp - Puzzle Edition
Quickbrickepp - Endless Edition

there is also a fourth, pp, that combines these versions.  I started to play it, but went back to the QbertArcade.

It must have a different title.  I like it better as three separate games, cause they are all equally challenging and give varying scores.  Plus, I have top score in all three :D

It's titled Qbrick but the games are the same.  you just want 3 separate games to have a high score in.

The Quickbricktpp will let you continue with all of the points you've earned as many times as you want.

QbertArcade is the best, but some of the newer modes do offer some challenges.  Keep Qbert04 for the 2004 games and QbertArcade for the original

Thanks for pointing out the duplicates. I had some things come up in the past few days that took my time away from working on the arcade, but I'll have things fixed in a day or so.

In 04, there is an arcade which is your regular mountian game.  Under 2004 you can play a jungle, castle, or ice version.  There is a clasic version you can select too, but it is the same as the arcade and the snake shouldn't pop out and suddenly disappear like it does.

Okay, cool. I have never played the game before, but I'll try it when I have the time. :)

That XL Jump game is almost impossible.  Everytime I get close to 3,000, I get this big long jump that's impossible to make.  I don't think 3,000 is possible in that game :-\\
