Video Game T-Shirt #5: Q*Bert

Availability: Check Defunkd’s Video Game Selection

Available to Play Online: Yes

Released: 1982

Platforms: Every platform in existence.

Gameplay: Use your joystick to navigate the foul-mouthed main character around the pyramid constructed of two dimensional cubes. Change the color of each cube’s platform while avoiding obstacles (balls), enemies (Coily the snake and his posse) and the inclination to commit suicide by jumping off the play area (after listening to the game’s wacky sounds for too long.)

Fact: One of the the game’s first titles was Snots and Boogers because the original concept allowed Q*Bert to shoot from his/her nose.
