All round, Centipede is a good one or two player game with well-defined graphics and good clear sound. Atari's cartridge based software for the Vic is a good idea and I am sure it will take off.
If you went bonkers over the arcade game, then you will enjoy playing the game at home on your Vic. It's not quite as fast as the Atari version and lacks the prettiness of the original - though these are shortcomings of the Vic not the cartridge.
