The Supreme Noser!

Q*bert is an energetic IittIe guy, with a big nose, who hops up and down cubicle pyramids in a magical world.

When Q*bert hops on a cube, its top changes color, so Q*bert invented a little game: he loves to go from pyramid to pyramid, changing all the cube tops in each pyramid to another color.

But nothing comes easily, even in Q*bert's world. Q*bert's enemies, Sam and Coily, do their best to thwart Q*bert in his colorful game. Sometimes they make Q*bert mad enough to say, "!#?"

It takes quick thinking and a quick wrist to help Q*bert change all of the cube tops to the desired color When you succeed, YOU are the Supreme Noser!
--From the Atari 2600 Q* Bert instruction manual.

Q Bert is a great and highly addictive game. This port to the Atari wasn't very good, like most arcade to Atari ports, but it wasn't as bad as most, either. I found this version to be easier than the NES and SNES versions. This game gets harder as it goes, though. It gets really confusing when you step on a block and it turns back to its original color. Q Bert is a really fun game, so give it a try.

Q bert has been captured by the Tazmanians and thrown into a time warp. To escape, he must hop his way through the deadly pyramids, changing each square to the proper color and avoiding nasty foes all the while.
"Your supreme challenge is to guide Q*bert through the entire time warp, until you free the pug nosed hero so he can return to his true calling in life -- playing a stuntman double for Don Johnson!"

(from the NES Q*bert instruction manual)

Q Bert was one of my favorite games on the NES. It was ported fairly well from the arcade game. The controls were a little weird at first, but once you get used to them they're not too bad. Q Bert was a big hit in the arcade. It was still a big hit when it came out on the NES. Now, it's kinda been forgotten. Relive the past and give this arcade classic a try!

To score as many points as possible by changing the color of the cubes on the pyramid from a starting color to a destination color. You'll do this by hopping Q*bert from cube to cube while avoiding the "nasty" characters who will try to stop him. Each time you complete a pyramid, you'll proceed to a new pyramid--or round. Try to complete as many rounds as you can. There are six separate games; nine levels in each game, and four rounds per level.
--From the Coleco Q* Bert instruction manual.

This is the Coleco adaption of the arcade classic Q*Bert, and like most other Colecovision games of the time, it is a solid representation of the original for the home console. Controller action and playability are excellent. A round starts with a short tune and Q*Bert hops around a pyramid of cubes accompanied by boingy, spring-like sound effect. Q*Bert changes the color of the cubes he lands on and must avoid several hazards that appear on the pyramid. Q*Bert is an arcade classic, and this particular version does a good job capturing its original allure. It's good fun and I highly recommend checking it out, if you haven't already.

Q Bert 3 is an awesome game. It's just like the first one, except the graphics and sound are better. The levels are a lot cooler, too. Q Bert was huge when it first came out, but after a while the buzz about it just kinda died down. It's still an awesome game. The controls on this version weren't the same as they were on the NES. If you are used to playing the NES version, this one will take some getting used to. Q Bert 3 is an awesome game, so give it a try!

Q* Bert's Qubes Coleco Screenshot 1
Q* Bert's Qubes (Coleco)
Take several rows of suspended "three-dimensional" qubes that rotate in space. Drop onto them some very weird creatures in pursuit of a guy with a nose for tumbling those qubes to various colors, and what have you got?

You've got one of the wackiest games you may ever play! And a most challenging one. You may need to match two or even three rows of qubes in one round. And then there is always someone -- or some thing -- trying to stop you... not to mention undo what you've always done. It's great fun, too. When was the last time you met a Meltnik or a Shoobop?
