CHEAT MODE unlimited lives, disk version likely cracked - edit three bytes at .atr image offsets $954C-954E changing $"CE BA 06" to become $EAEAEA.

Agree with last comment, Qberts I hate, BUT this game Pharaoh's Pyramid is the all time greatest Qbert themed game. It even conjures up a look and feel like that of Rainbow Walker. The sky alters between night and day. To complete a screen, player must build a layer of a pyramid by carrying blocks from the river shore (bottom) and bringing each block to the top square. When you die while carrying a block, the block is delivered to the top square for you. After moving all the blocks, then you gotta completely colorize the playfield like Qbert. The variety of new challenges, all keeping with the Egyptian story, puts other Qberts to bed early.

To be worthy of my time and money, a Q*bert clone has got to offer something the original didn't have such as a stronger plot, more and/or weirder enemies, and tougher reflex and strategy tests. Pharaoh's Pyramid manages to succeed on all three counts, and does so with some of the most colorful and well animated 48K Atari computer graphics I've ever seen.
