Q*Bert - Gallery

Q*Bert was released in 1982. He was immensely popular in the arcades, and later reappeared on several game console platforms and an animated television series. Q*Bert was introduced to a whole new generation in 2012 with a major role in Wreck it Ralph! The first image below shows a yellow Q-bert with round feet and a very different nose. This was how he originally looked, as seen on the prototype for the Q*Bert coin-operated arcade game in the collection at the Museum of the Game.
