Back in the days of the ’80s arcade Centipede was one of the old reliables. You could basically guarantee that a Centipede machine would be in there somewhere, maybe not drawing the same size pile of quarters as Pac-Man but doing enough to justify the floor space. Centipede‘s sequel Millipede didn’t do as well, despite being a worthy followup that added new gameplay upgrades and enemies, and after that the series went dark. The 1998 remake was adequate, which was nowhere near enough to revitalize one of the arcade’s defining games, and after that you were as likely to find another entry in the Centipede series as you were a Crystal Castles 2.
