Game History - Centipede - 1983
An unlicensed IBM PC translation of the arcade hit - created around the same
time as Atarisoft's official PC port. Accordingly, the player controls a
gun which can be moved throughout the bottom of a mushroom-littered playfield,
and must curb the attacks of assorted pests: the centipede, which traces a
path between the mushroom and may be split into segments; the spider, which
devours both mushrooms and the player; the flea, which deposits new mushrooms
in its wake; and the scorpion which poisons the mushrooms, sending the
centipede links into free-fall on contact.
One or two players may participate, and the selectable skill level adjusts the speed of the game.
