GamePro (US) (Aug, 1995)
While they're not much to look at compared to newer titles, fans of these classics will appreciate being able to play both games with the same cart. These are still two of the finest mindless games on memory lane.
Electric Playground (Nov 17, 1995)
I was really quite amazed by how much I got off on this game pak. Millipede was never one of my fave diversions in the eighties but I've found I can't keep my hands off this port over. If the question you want answered is; "Is it fun and is it worth the dough?" I'd have to respond with an irrevocable "Yes". The game delivers a lot more enjoyment than its raggedy old graphical wrappings would have you believe. I'm not as impressed by Centipede but it doesn't hurt my feelings that it's included. All in all, I'd say Accolade, The Code Monkeys and Nintendo have done a great job on reviving the dead. I can't wait to chomp down on the other classics.
Game Players (Aug, 1995)
Still, for the price of one Game Boy game you can get two arcade classics! We're not suggesting you sell your PlayStation and funnel all your money into a Game Boy; we're just saying if you have a Game Boy, the classic series is a great purchase.

Nedá se říci, že vás hra Centipede - Millipede nebude bavit, i když je naprosto jednoduchá a obyčejná. Zábavnost v ní jakási je, i když nevím přesně jaká, ale hry tohoto typu mě k zoufalství nepřivádí a docela v klidu si je zahraji. Je to přece klasika.
The bugs aren't supposed to literally crawl in either title, but all of the insects' movement nearly brings the game to a grinding halt on certain occasions. Now if you were battling slugs, that would be a different story altogether, but you're not. Even playing on the Super Nintendo doesn't help and makes the choppiness all the more apparent. In the end, both games fail as strong translations because of the plodding pace of what were originally fast shooters. It's enough to bug any fan of the arcade games!
Det är verkligen jobbigt det här med re-releaser. Vissa spel minns man så väl och tyckte så mycket om att de fortfarande håller medan andra känns så ruskigt usla. Centipede och Millipede är två bra exempel på det sistnämnda. Spelen har liksom ingen som helst charm och jag känner mig totalt omotiverad att spela, speciellt när det finns så mycket bättre val om man nu måste ha just kultspel till Game Boy. Så varken Centipede eller Millipede fyller någon funktion. De är helt enkelt bara i vägen.
