Q*Bert Wiki

Sam hopping on a cube. It's a Sam.

Sam is one of Q*bert's enemies, appearing in the original Q*bert in arcades in 1982. He is a small, green onion-like creature (similar to his brother - Slick) who's role, like Slick's, is to undo Q*bert's progress on the pyramid by jumping on them and reverting them to their original colour (i:e; the colour they were before Q*bert jumped on them.




In the first game, Slick and Sam played an identical role: turn the color of the cubes back the way they were before Q*bert landed on them. Unlike other enemies, Q*bert can defeat both Slick and Sam by running into them.

In the third game, Slick and Sam played the same role as in the original.

Q*bert 2004

In the Q*bert 2004 flash game, Slick and Sam are back to their original roles. However, as with Wrong-Way, Ugg and Coily, they appear differently depending on what board type is being used.
