Inspired by the Atari classic, Centipede: Origins brings an entirely new level of bug-blasting fun to the world-renowned franchise.

Evil, plant-munching vermin are swarming into your precious garden and rapidly destroying everything!

You, a peace-loving gnome, have no choice than to wage an all-out war against these vile creepy crawlies.

Using extreme weapons and gadgets, protect your garden from the ambush of vicious bugs and the dreaded CENTIPEDE.

Who will survive: GNOMES or BUGS?! YOU DECIDE!

Features:
6 Upgradeable weapons that will lay waste to the onslaught of bugs and centipedes! Use the grenades, rapid fire and others to eliminate the insects! More to be included soon!
7 Upgradeable gadgets such as the Fly Trap, the Time Warp and others to give you the upper hand in your battle with the bugs and centipedes! More to come soon!
Collect coins to buy upgrades and help you protect the world of the gnomes!
8 playable levels including Bumpkinpatch Gardens, Bumpkinpatch Aerial, Tarpit Excavation, Valley of Flowers and others that can be purchased as you progress through the game!

More features to come!

Must admit i'm a sucker for remakes of old retro games specially by Atari. Do hope the IAP's wont be that crazy as by the sounds of it there'll be a few.

Hope in the future we'll get more and more retro remakes, eg a new Donkey Kong. Enjoyed the Frogger one a while back.

I'll be getting this later

Definitely looking forwards to a video, and how the gameplay compares to other centipede-like games on the app store.

That would be fun! The other day I was playing 'Flying Shark' that I had on my Amstrad 6128.

Do you think this Centipede is another candidate to be free soon?

I dont care if an app is free soon, i like to buy it so the company gets my money, specially for small indie devs. Same for Centipede, if this sells well then Atari will want to do more and more iOS apps. If we all wait for it to be free then they wont make money and wont bother doing more apps.

When an apps 99c i think its laughable people want to wait a few weeks to save a buck !

Looks interesting. Maybe this will drag me away from my Pocket Planes obsession.

I will as per usual be waiting for Sanuka's playthrough video
