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.

    0:53 I like this

  3. q*bert back then: an innocent 90โ€™s arcade game

    q*bert now: brutal killer that will kill you in an instant if spotted

  4. 1:10:26 What is he doing-
    I know what is he doing
    He is done Playing Q*Bert

  5. If you think I'm going to watch seventy-three minutes of an arcade game from the 1980's, then you are absolutely right.

  6. Six hours on one quarter and 6 million points, had to kill 23 extra Q-berts to make it in time for dinner. The only game I truly mastered as an arcade rat in the 80's. I used CBS as my initials—Christmas Siletz Benton

  7. This game became my most favorite arcade game of the 80โ€™s , it was sadly overlooked by other gamers.. but I assure you , it was challenging in its own way with having to complete the color sequence to the pyramid, the higher the level .. the more color sequences you had to do . Oh , avoiding the bad guys ( colley , uugh and wrong way ) And the ever annoying but cute ( slick and Sam ) they would change the colors back โ€ฆ.you also had the fun green freeze ball , which froze the board while you could still hop around the pyramidโ€ฆ. Oh , there were the red balls which fell and would kill you

  8. Just read the book from the creator; apparently Levels 6-9 are all the same.

  9. Did you know Q*bertโ€™s voice was made with S.A.M. Speech By a Commodore 64 C64 computer?

  10. there is no ugg and wrong way in level 3 in my mother's iphone 11.

  11. ๐Ÿ‘ if Wreck-It Ralph introduced you to this

  12. Wait does Qbert say "ah shit" when he dies by making contact with an enemy??

  13. Yeah, I recognized him in Wreck-it-Ralph (2012 film)

  14. Wow….those was all we had back then….I remember those days in the living room sitting on the floor in front da tv playing this(on the one on top on the other one)..

  15. I Mean How Much more Simple Can you get A little Orange Dude Named Q*bert Jumping on Squares to Change the Color, While Staying on A Pyramid, and Avoiding Objects and Creatures That Aren't Green. And use a Spinning Disk to Lure a Snake to his Death, Then it Gives you your point value. Of course you gotta love how he swears. Well There is Pong, And Although it was the first, that's just Computerized Ping Pong.

  16. 0:00 100000000000000000000000000000 Oโ€™s!!!!!1!1!1!1!1!1!1!1

  17. I just ๐Ÿ’˜ qbert. I played this game for hrs when I was a kid on my Atari 2600. I just wish that my switch had my most favorite childhood game. Go qbert u rock. U will always rock.โคโคโคโคโค๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

  18. I played this at a retro arcade downtown and it was a fun game.

  19. Just now I realize that Qbert talking sounds like an african grey parrot.

  20. โ€œLure snake to his deathโ€ brutal as hell

  21. Why isnt there a minecraft DLC for this litle boii

  22. Played the version with the drum kicker hits the cabinet when Qbert suicides himself.

  23. This entire game when he jumps sounds like heโ€™s farting๐Ÿ’จ๐Ÿ’จ๐Ÿ’จ

    Who here at 2023

  25. Qbert is proof of what Captain Kirk said about the 1980's in Star Trek 4.

  26. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚he died and said oh shit๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ 1:08:09




  28. I had the highest score in Trinidad ๐Ÿ‡น๐Ÿ‡น on this game in 1985 video game competitions love this game๐Ÿ˜Š

  29. Iโ€™m here because I watched pixels

  30. So much unnecessary death for poor Q*Bert! About 90% of his deaths seemed easily avoidable by even a novice player. Nice to see all the levels, though.

  31. What version of qbert is this?
    This version contains voice of qbert

  32. Idiot plays unlosable game… extremely painful to watch. Thankfully, God blessed YouTube viewers with fast-forward.
