Easily one of the greatest, most addictive arcade games of all time.

I'm a Centipede nut myself. The first Centipede i ever played was Exterminator made by Nufekop for Vic 20. Then i bought Atari 800 XL. Of all versions i have played through the years Millipede for Atari 8bit is still the most entertaining of them all (me think). Can't get enough of that awesome version of Millipede.

Mom loved this game on our 5200 and later the 7800.  When she seen the 5200 Trak-Ball controller on clearance in K-Mart she picked one up and we spent hours on that thing...playing just Centipede.

That is one cool fact that I did not know.  I knew the 7800 version had the feature but I did not realize it was unique as a game option.
