    Qbert Description

    A two-legged, big-nosed, orange creature jumps diagonally around on a pyramid, changing the color of the blocks he lands on. Avoid most moving objects and characters while luring Coily, the snake, to his demise by jumping off the edge of the pyramid onto one of the flying disks. The game has nine levels of four rounds each.

    You must have Qbert hop on all the squares of each pyramid and change them into the color that they are required to be. Everytime Qbert is hit by something, he says "@!?@!". You must be careful and be sure that Qbert does not fall off the pyramid.

    Your scores need to be in by next Sunday 12th of December BY 7PM (NSW daylight savings time).

    The problem with this game is that to play it correctly you need joystick restrictors in place so it;s diagonal movements only. Or a 4-way mounted diagonally

    OK Andykmv you have forced me to start playing this bloody game & now, to quote Mr Bert, I can't @!#?@! ing stop!

    Getting a score in early but I hope there's plenty of improvement to come.



    Getting to level 3 semi regularly now but out tonight & tomorrow so I doubt I'll improve on this effort.

    Did the original cab come out like this? Maybe thats why i find it illogical to play?

    It's not illogical Andy, set it up so that numbers 2, 4, 6 & 8 are your jump buttons, twist your keyboard on a 45 degree angle & it will make perfect sense...

    Its really easy to change an 8-way to play Qbert


    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
