A platform/run n jump/maze game where the object of the Q*bert game is to change the color of the top of the cubes to the Destination color indicated at the upper-left of the screen (below Player 1’s score) by hopping onto them. When all the cubes in the pyramid have been changed to the destination color, the screen will advance to the next Round, with the player-controlled Q*bert character starting back on the top cube. At the beginning of each Level, there will be a short demonstration cycle with Q*bert hopping around four cubes to explain to the player the play action of each Level. Each Level consists of four Rounds. The current Level number and Round number is displayed at the upper-right of the screen (below Player 2’s score in a 2-player game).

Note: Used a collision cheat. There’s a glitch in the game near the end caused by the cheat. The game has 9 levels and it is endless as once you beat level 9, it repeats level 9 endlessly.


  1. If someone ever does a Buckner & Garcia style song about Q*Bert, they should use the game's voice synthesis for the vocals.

  14. There’s this retro arcade in Fentonville, Arkansas called Arkadia. It had more classic games than you could count, and this is one of them. It was pretty tough. Anyone who’s a fan of retro gaming should really give places like that a try.

    How simple and stress relieving games were..

  23. I remember being four years old, sitting on my dad's lap and playing this game with him on his computer for hours, back in 1999/2000. I can't believe I've finally found it after struggling to remember the name for so long.

    I'm 26 now and still play video games almost everyday 💜
