Q*bert’s lot in life is to jump on each block within a pyramid before moving onto another pyramid to repeat it all. Unfortunately, some forces are unhappy with Q*bert’s behavior and for reasons known only to them feel compelled to disrupt his endeavor. These enemies include nondescript, aimless blobs as well as vicious, bouncing snakes that pursue Q*bert directly. More annoyingly, some enemies, hiding their shame behind sunglasses, can undo Q*bert’s progress. Q*bert isn’t completely defenseless; he can lead the snakes to their deaths by jumping off of the pyramid onto flying saucers that resemble the game Simon.
Q*bert was inducted on April 16th, 2009.
