The Tazmaniac Kings of Chaos have trapped your pal Q*bert in their treacherous time warp. With nearly 40 perilous pyramids to escape from he's in trouble up to his "schnoz"! Now, you're his only hope. To secure his safety, you'll have to be a fast player, bouncing our pug-nosed hero around like a banshee, and matching the pyramid squares with escape code colors. While you dodge zillions of Whammy Balls they'll fall on him and SPLAT! Plus, you gotta outsmart Q*bert's worst enemies - Ugg, Wrong-Way, Slick, Sam and Coily (the slimiest purple headed snake you'll ever meet) - who'll be on your tail from square one. It's a regular Zany Zone in here, a loony bin of mischief and mayhem. And if you don't have the nerve, you may go nuts!
