I am very thankful I had the money to purchase the Atari Collection 2 on the Evercade systems. One of the twenty games on that cartridge is Millipede. There are a lot of similarities between Centipede on the Atari 2600 and Millipede. Sadly Millipede is the worse version of the two. Everything is really blocky in Millipede on the Atari 2600. It can be quite a shock to see this game. Of course there are plenty of blocky graphics in the Centipede Atari 260 version as well.

We have a smaller block shooting at the enemies in Millipede. I noticed some interesting graphical glitches in Millipede that were not in Centipede. When I recorded Centipede it had audio glitches. When I played it later there were no audio glitches. I played Millipede later and it still had the graphical glitches. I do like the clouds of whatever that appear in Millipede.

The movement is similar in both games. Millipede does highlight the area the player can move around in. There are plenty of bugs that will come and try to hit the player in Millipede. I found the spiders much more annoying in Millipede personally. They had similar movements. The spiders in Millipede seemed to target me a bit better. That might just be a personal perception though. I ran into more spiders playing Millipede.

When Millipede on the Atari 2600 is compared to the arcade version it is really lacking. The same can be said for Centipede though. The concept of the arcade is brought across in the Atari 2600 version of both games. What is really strange is Millipede came out a few years after Centipede. I would expect all kinds of improvements. There are a few here and there like the gas. Otherwise for some reason I like Centipede better. Maybe I expected more from Millipede.

I remember Millipede from back in the day. Those bugs coming down to get us while we moved around at the bottom was hectic. Trying to get that high score and take out bug after bug was the whole replay reason. In this day and age though Millipede is just a piece of video game history. I don't enjoy the same aggravation I did when I was younger. Millipede can enhance the reflexes and improve hand eye coordination.
