In the TV series Preacher, Odin Quinncannon plays the computer game shown in the screenshot below. The characters on the left and right look very familiar to me. Does anybody know this game?

    Fun fact: Q*bert was featured prominently in the film Wreck-It Ralph. – Pharap Jul 2 '16 at 9:04

While I was hoping to find this might be Faster Harder More Challenging Q*bert (see: Wikipedia's article on Q*bert: Section on Faster Harder More Challenging Q*bert), my research indicates that this is from Q*bert Rebooted's classic mode (see: Wikipedia's article on Q*bert: Section on Q*bert Rebooted), based on the side artwork and some image searching. (e.g., seen in media shown at Steam's page for Q*bert Rebooted, or if you scroll down a bit on this page: Playstation Lifestyle: Q*bert PS4.)

  • This should be the accepted answer. The image posted by the O.P. is of Qbert Rebooted. The accepted answer is referencing the original Qbert. – Metro Smurf Jul 3 '16 at 15:29

This is Qbert.

enter image description here

Q*bert is an arcade video game developed and published by Gottlieb in 1982. It is a 2D action game with puzzle elements that uses "isometric" graphics to create a pseudo-3D effect, and serves as a precursor to the isometric platformer genre. The objective is to change the color of every cube in a pyramid by making the on-screen character hop on top of the cube while avoiding obstacles and enemies. Players use a joystick to control the character.
