One of the most iconic arcade characters of the early 80s, the protagonist of Q*Bert lives only to hop around a isometric pyramid of cubes, changing their colors while avoiding enemies intent on stopping him, for whatever reason (motivations were often fairly vague in early 80s games). The game featured a rare diagonals-only control scheme using a rotated 4-way joystick, which continues to present challenges to MAME enthusiasts 40 years later. Q*Bert was Gottlieb's only real arcade hit, but it hit big enough to not only put Gottlieb on the map but to grace Saturday morning cartoons, endless merchandise and appear in movies Wreck-It Ralph and Pixels.
