Purity: Arcade Classics Q*bert Review

There are three of these Arcade Classics sets from "The Bridge Direct".  The only real reference to them to be found online is a Youtube video.

Box I paid $9.99 at Toys'R'Us for a $0.09 Price per Piece.



Parts 1.  Plenty of Plates here.  Those Round Bricks look to be 3x3 in size but only have 2x2 studs on them.  I see more Minifig Shields, and those are Kre-O Ball Joints in the lower right corner.

Parts 2.  Those 2x2 Plates in the upper right corner are double sided.  The Slopes w/Studs are neat too.

Build.  One Frame, three Stations, and three pieces of one Hit Cover.

The Questions:
Can you build something -- a frame, station, or starship -- right away? Yes. (+5)
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio? Below. (+5) (The Golden Ratio is $0.10 per part.)
If you can't build a frame right away, or choose not to, does it have parts you should be able to put into use right away? Yes. (+5)
Does it have more than a handful of immediately useful parts? Yes. (+5)
Score: +20 (A+).  Not as good looking as the Centipede set.  The monotone nature of the colors really hinders it.
