Q*bert is an iconic arcade game developed and published by Gottlieb in 1982. It is known for its unique gameplay mechanics, which involve hopping around a pyramid-shaped structure and changing the color of each block. Qbert is also known for its colorful characters and catchy soundtrack.

Instructions

Objective

The objective of Q*bert is to change the color of every block on the pyramid to the target color. To do this, Q*bert must hop around the pyramid and jump on each block. Each time Q*bert jumps on a block, the block will change color. The target color will change for each level.

Controls

Qbert is controlled using a single, diagonally mounted four-way joystick. The player can use the joystick to move Qbert left, right, up, or down. Q*bert can also jump, which allows him to change the color of the block he is standing on.

Gameplay

The game starts with a pyramid made of 28 cubes. Qbert starts at the top of the pyramid. The player must use the joystick to move Qbert around the pyramid and jump on each block. As Qbert changes the color of the blocks, the pyramid will start to collapse. The player must prevent Qbert from falling off the pyramid.

The game is made more difficult by the presence of enemies. The two main enemies are Coily, a snake that tries to capture Qbert, and Sam and Slick, two disc jockeys that try to disrupt Qbert's progress.

Scoring

The player scores points by changing the color of blocks and by collecting bonuses. The player also gets bonus points for completing each level quickly.

Tips

Here are a few tips for playing Q*bert:

  • Start by changing the color of the blocks on the outside of the pyramid. This will make it more difficult for Q*bert to fall off the pyramid.
  • Be careful of Coily. Coily will try to capture Qbert by wrapping him around the pyramid. If Coily captures Qbert, the player loses a life.
  • Watch out for Sam and Slick. Sam and Slick will try to disrupt Qbert's progress by playing loud music. The loud music will make it difficult for Qbert to hear the sound of the game, which can make it difficult to play.
  • Use the jump button to your advantage. The jump button can be used to avoid enemies and to reach blocks that are difficult to reach.

Q*bert is a fun and challenging game that is perfect for players of all ages.
