Who is Q*Bert?[]

Q*Bert: He's more than Pac-Man fused together with Birdo to form some kind of freakish pyramid hopping... thing. His game was one of the highlights of the Golden Age of Gaming, and is one of the favorites among old-school gamers.

So what does Q*Bert do in this Golden Age beauty? He hops up and down pyramids with those stumpy little legs of his, trying to change the colors of squares on the pyramid to different colors. Thrilling! BUT WAIT! He must face dangers such as "Ugg" and "Coily the Snake!"

How will Q*Bert survive?! Download a ROM and find the hell out. Q*Bert owns your soul.

Q*Bert is another character among the long line of one-and-done people from the fodder-filled Summer 2002 Contest. He has yet to make it back into the field after his lone match, and people don't really seem to care. With the sole exception of Pac-Man, people aren't into the old puzzle characters.
