The Tazmaniac Kings of Chaos have trapped your ol' pal Q*bert in their treacherous time warp. And, with nearly 40 perilous pyramids to escape from, he's in trouble up to his "schnoz"! Now, you're his only hope. But to secure Q*bert's safety, you'll have to be a whiz-bang player, bouncing our pug-nosed hero around like a banshee, and matching the pyramid squares with escape code colors. All the while, you'll dodge untold zillions of Whammy Balls that'll fall onto the Q*bster's punky hairdo - SPLAT! Plus, you gotta outsmart Q*bert's archest 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!
