Even women tend to gravitate towards this game - probably due to their distain for bugs! The huge, hideous spider is a bit slower here than in other versions, but he also tends to linger near the bottom of the screen -- preventing you from getting a good shot at him. The scorpion shows up early and often, and at 1000 points, he's always worth taking a shot at. By poisoning the mushrooms, he indirectly leads to most of your deaths. Centipede has three skills levels and comes with my highest recommendation.
Centipede is a delight to play on the Colecovision. The graphics are crisp and more detailed than many home ports of Centipede.

So und nicht anders müssen Arcadeportierungen sein: Wer Centipede schon auf anderen Konsolen verfallen ist, der wird diese Version lieben. Technisch identisch mit dem Spielautomaten wird selbst der Trackballcontroller unterstützt und daher übertrumpft das Spiel die Variante für die hauseigene Atari 5200-Konsole. Wer also actionreiche Arcade Shooter mag, der kommt an Centipede nicht vorbei!
