For $4.99, fans of Centipede won't be disappointed. Good controls, smart updated mechanics, and a welcome classic mode for nostalgia make this a great package. I can't wait to see what Atari updates next. Asteroids, Dig Dug, Xevious, Gauntlet or Tempest, perhaps?
Occasionally, the action moves slower as multiple baddies clog the screen, but overall, Centipede is a fine addition to the iPhone library and worth the $4.99. Its slick retro visuals, spacey 1980s-inspired music and infinite levels make it an idea pickup for arcade and shooting fans.
I liked Centipede a lot back in the day and I was more than happy to see it appear on the iPhone. With fond memories aside, Centipede has some bugs, and I don’t mean in a good way. The first few times I launched this game it would either hang or crash after playing for only a few minutes.
Centipede definitely stands on its own dozen legs, delivering varied, satisfying action. More is needed, though, for it to get out from under the rock of being just an arcade remake.
