(Parker Bros.)

Grade: C (76.43)

Born from one of the most popular, highly original arcade games, but lacking the memorable "clunk", the Atari version of Q-Bert, though not rare, is always in high demand from new Atari collectors. Hop Q-Bert from cube to cube to change the colors and avoid the various bad creatures, while not falling off. When you've changed the colors of all of the cubes you can move on. The key in getting the diagonal movement of Q-Bert to work is to rotate the joystick in your hand so that the fire button is at the top.
