Meet Mr. Q - the painter. Or shall we say Mr. Q, the artist? Whether Mr.Q is painting as a worker or as an artist, he has a pretty tough job to do. He has to paint all the cubes of this pyramid with the same color. This would not be so tough, was there not for the army of pests, bothering our hero and making his painting job as hard as possible.
First comes the pink (and not so smart) Snake. Snake hatches from a pink egg , which falls onto the Pyramid every round of the game. The pink egg bounces down the Pyramid and when reaches the bottom, the snake embarks on its deadly pursuit of our hero.
You have to control Mr. Q's path along the pyramid so that he avoids the unpleasant (to say the least) rendezvous with Snake. Snake is not exactly a rocket scientist, so you will be able to make him jump off the Pyramid to its doom pretty easily - just step onboard one of the "flying saucers" conveniently located on both sides of the pyramid and waiting to save your … (you guessed it!). You get a bonus of 500 points every time you do that too.
Another pretty annoying character is the Critic - a greenish fellow, who paints the cubes back to their original color in an obvious disapproval of Mr. Q's painting talent. Let's move on to the deadly rubies. They are red, they are fast, and they are deadly. The deadly rubies drop onto the top of the Pyramid and randomly bounce down the cubes. They cannot follow Mr. Q like Snake can, but they come in large numbers, so you'd better pay attention. The bottom of the Pyramid is a dangerous place. The Nasty Jumping Buddies enter Mr. Q's peaceful creative life from the uncharted territory below the Pyramid. As the name suggests, they are nasty and they can jump in all directions. So they jump up the pyramid and to avoid them you have to put some real effort into navigating Mr.Q across the Pyramid.
