    QB-3 © 1982 Rock-ola.

    This is a shoot 'em up vector game where the player controls a man on a cube. There are enemies on the faces of the cube that the player has to blast away. When the man walks off the edge of one face, the cube rotates and he is on another face of the cube. There are $'s that the player can collect for bonus points & the player advances to the next level by clearing at the enemies on the cube.
