    You're getting a dedicated Q*Bert cab ??

    I like this game, I like the sound effects, so weird, and it gets pretty hard and goes all MC Escher on you in the later levels

    You will Andy, I think everyone has the same experience with Q*Bert re: the controls and the board layout - but once that penny drops it becomes a really fun game

    Did you change the control setup to how I said, then its a just a matter of hitting the diagonals, lure coily to the spinning discs when he is close, he we will off the edge when you jump on the disc and the enemies will disappear for a short while.

    1. In game press Tab and go into your Input settings ( This game )

    2. Change

    P1 Right to=Right Down

    P1 Left to= Left Up

    P1 Up to= Up Right

    P1 Down= Down Left

    The trick to do this is to do one movement quickly followed by the other ie for right press right then down quickly you should see right arrow down arrow. Make sure there is no "or" separating the movements as it will not work.

    Works excellently

    Try my tip above should work flawlessly
    I just tried this and the game plays so much easier than the default stick setup, which I used to struggle with but never thought of doing this, thanks Dkong

    Don't know why people are having issues with controls? I'm just playing it like a normal 4 way game with the standard joystick mapping? works fine? Press down to go down, up to go up, left to go left, etc.

    There is no 'up' , there is only up-left or up-right.

    What I mean is.. I press the stick in the up/down/left/right directions on a standard 8 way stick with the standard control mapping and play the game fine.

    EDIT: I just tried the way DKong suggested and couldn't play the game at all.
