Video Games Magazine Issue 11, June 1983 - Q*Bert makes the jump to Pinball. Bizarre looking table too.

Now the fascinating thing about this article is it’s writer “Zelmo”. Apparently a contributor involved in the coin op industry. Who was Zelmo? Was this written by the guy who actually made the machine (a paid article?) or just a guy who loved the heck out of pinball machines and wanted to start writing some stuff up?

WHO ARE YOU ZELMO?! We may never know.
