    Instant Classic!!!

    Talk about instant classic. You get to shoot at this gigantic centipede before he wreaks havoc. What I like about this game is that you can play it over and over again and not get bored. I know the graphics are prim... Read Full Review

    Amusing at first...

    I honestly think this game is overrated. At first its really addictive, until you realize you've wasted hours without a sense of accomplishment. And in 2006 no really gives a crap if you got ove 10 million points in Cent... Read Full Review

    Graphics aren't everything, and Centipede proves it.

    If you haven't played this in either the arcades or the 2600, you're missing out. Easily one of the best arcade games ever made, Centipede was also one of the best games on the 2600. Any Atari fan should have heard of Ce... Read Full Review

    Old School game worth lots of pennies, that is if you can find it.

    I have always loved the Commodore 64, sitting there playing Concentration, Mrs. Pac-man, and Centipede. Never play on the thing much these days, but that is what happens when you have an old system with old paddles. This... Read Full Review

    The real shooter

    Centipede was the original button mashing frenzy game. Both the graphics and the sound were subpar by today's standards but were rich and rewarding back then. You could hear that the spider was around and you would rol... Read Full Review

    An arcade game of blasting bugs makes it to your home game console.

    The story is you are sent to protect a forest and must use your magic wand to blast a centipede and his bug cohorts. Gameplay unlike the arcade version the Atari game opted to use the joystick. Like in the arcade gam... Read Full Review

    Often imitated, never duplicated.

    In case you've been locked in a closet the past 20 plus years, centipede is a shoot em up type arcade style game. Your player is at the bottom of the screen, and you have the ability of moving left & right. The centipe... Read Full Review
