Centipede
(Atari)


Grade: B+ (89.17)


In this simplified version of the classic arcade game, you try to get rid of all of the pests in your mushroom garden by zapping them with your magic want. If any of the bugs touch you, you lose one of your wands. Every time you zap the centipede, his remaining body parts continue to hunt you down. Throw a few spiders, scorpions, and fleas into the mix and you've got yourself a game.
