Yeah, the rebooted half of the package looks like junk. Has been available for mobile devices for quite sometime, but never saw anyone say anything good about it. The appeal here rests solely on the inclusion of the arcade original, in my opinion.
I also liked the Dreamcast/Playstation remake from Hasbro (Which included the arcade original, in both 2D and 3D styles), along with the even earlier Q*Bert 3 for the Super Nintendo.
This one looks like it was done by an indie developer over a few hours of spare time. That wouldn't necessarily be such an awful thing if they at least understood what made the original great, but from all reports I've seen, they didn't.
