Wow this game is very nice. It's actually much improved over the other 2 Atari ports.

Basically, there are 3 modes.

Arcade Mode: Your basic classic Centipede. But with the updated graphics

Classic Mode: Same as Arcade Mode, but with the old school graphics.

Ultra Mode: Basically Centipede with all kinds of power ups and a lot more enemies.

One thing you have to know is that there is no shoot button or anything, it automatically shoots constantly for you.

And 1337Brian, they are probably going to port all of their classic games. I would imagine Asteroids could be next.

I definitely recommend it if you liked the other Atari games, or liked Centipede, or like retro games in general (like me ) But it is really a great game for everyone. A true "pick up and play" title.

Arn might post a vid, as he even posted an entry about the thread I made about Centipede coming.

That's great that it includes the old school graphics. I'll definitely be picking this up soon.

Yeah, my only suggestion would be to add Ultra Mode with the classic graphics, but it's still a fantastic game otherwise

It's a fun and fast-paced game.

Slow down when changing levels have to be tweaked.

The control is nice, with a big area for your finger so it won't get in the way.

It's better than I thought it would be.

Of coure it's a game for those that like the old arcade school.
