Centipede is incredibly additive and like every aspect of the game is perfectly balanced and tuned. It's also exceptionally hard, and game sessions rarely last for more than a few minutes.
The Atari Times (Sep 08, 2003)
And in conclusion, I can't really say anything bad about this severely classic game. After all, not only do you get to kill gnarly bugs, but you don't have to scrape off your shoes afterwards.

Shoot stuff, stay alive, and keep adding credits. That's what Centipede's all about, baby.
