Centipede 

 

Hopefully you were able to participate in the live stream I did of the Atari Collection 1 on the Evercade system. Centipede was one of those games I played. The live stream was separated out into videos and Centipede got its very own video. Sadly the audio glitched out in that recording. I have gone back to this cartridge and verified the audio is just fine on this game now. We can't win at video capturing some games in some sessions. Ya'll have no idea how many errors we are able to correct on the fly.

Centipede is all about staying alive and scoring points. The centipede comes down toward the player. The player can shoot them and turn them into barriers that will block the players shots and what is left of the centipede from going that direction. The centipedes will turn around and come down a level. The player can also move up a few spaces to avoid a collision. The spiders are really annoying in Centipede.

The graphics are very blocky which is how they looked back in that era of gaming on the Atari 2600. The scorpions and spiders look decent. The audio is fun to listen to. I enjoyed the sounds as I moved around and shot the centipedes. The graphics will change colors after the player completely destroys a centipede. This is actually pretty neat to see in my opinion.

Being able to move around the screen some is pretty cool in Centipede. I wish we could shoot in all four directions. That would have been extremely helpful in my opinion. Centipede is one of those older games that you can play forever. If you can stay alive and do not get bored with the action. Historical gamers will find Centipede to be very interesting on so many levels. Centipede shows early ideas for video games and how the industry slowly grew into what it now is.

Centipede is considered to be one of the classics by a great many. We shoot the centipede, spider, scorpions and more. Be careful with how long you take in Centipede. If you take too long more centipede pieces will appear near the bottom. Centipede is a great test of your hand-eye coordination, and reflexes. I enjoyed giving Centipede some attention after all these years.
