Somewhere within this deadly forest, a gigantic insect is waiting. Will you be able to take it down or will it have you for lunch in Atari Centipede?
The classic game returns in this thrilling online version, which is just one of the titles you’ll find in the Atari Classics collection. It features several of the legendary gaming company’s most popular titles of all time. In Centipede, your goal is to survive for as long as you can as you’re attacked by both it and its fearsome friends. Will you be able to hold out against not just titular arthropod but other insects like spiders, scorpions, and fleas?
Centipede became an almost instant blockbuster when it debuted in arcades in the early ‘80s. It's also one of history’s first video games to be co-created by a woman. Programmer Dona Bailey teamed up with designer Ed Logg to work on the original game for Atari. Since then, Centipede has been ported to several home video game consoles and PCs. It also spawned a sequel titled Millipede in 1982.
