Imaginative take on a classic game

Having grown up with Centipede ever since the original hit the arcades back when I was in grade school, I'm thoroughly delighted to see this latest version work so smoothly. Like Pac-Man, I have seen/played so many variations throughout a lifetime of Centipede's existance, and this is one that improves on the original without sacrificing the easy addicting gameplay so essential to it.

I'm unsure at the moment as to whether there's an option to adjust how quickly you can move across the screen, so for now I'm docking a star. Meanwhile, its overall fantasy-style presentation (which harkens back to the outer cabinet illustrations on Centipede II) reminds me strongly of the freebie "Centipede" comic that came bundled with the original Atari 2600 cartridge of the game (those of you who encountered it will know exactly what I'm talking about). Also, it's great to see that firing is now *finally* automatic, which especially makes sense on an iPhone (did anyone EVER take their hand off the Fire button in ANY version of the game? It might as well have never existed and been automatic anyway!). A fun purchase for on-the-go or even lounging around.

At this rate I'd say the Nintendo handheld's days are severely numbered.......

A classic returns

One of the few classic arcade games that has been adapted successfully to the iPhone. Well done! One minor complaint; it's difficult to see what the peds are doing once they get below you on the screen. It's also difficult to blast away the mushrooms on the left and right edges. Both of these problems are due the the controls as you move with a cursor set below your Avitar. Still worthy of a 5 star rating though.

Great take on an old classic

I loved playing the original Centipede, and I'm happy that this game takes the arcade version and expands on it with boosts, gadgets, and potions. However, I'm a purist, so I often play with nothing but the bow and arrows I start off with. The addition of different maps and enemies also helps put a new twist on the fun of the classic arcade game. Well done Atari, and I'm anxiously waiting for what's next!
