Welcome to our second Club VCS Recharged Squad Challenge!!! For this challenge we're playing Centipede: Recharged! Released in September 2021, Centipede: Recharged is a re-imagining of the beloved Atari arcade game.

The second of Atari's Recharged series, Centipede: Recharged builds on the foundation laid by Missile Command: Recharged. As in that game, Centipede: Recharged takes the basic premise of the arcade original, adds power-ups, a future-retro aesthetic and an endless arcade loop. It also ups the ante with the addition of 40 challenge levels, 10 of which are currently exclusive to the VCS!

Blast bugs and chase high scores in this glorious revival of an old-school classic.  A dozen new power-ups can give you an edge by introducing abilities like screen-clearing explosions, rail guns, and even slowing down time.

 

Club VCS Recharged Squad Contest

We are celebrating the launch of Club VCS and the Recharged Squad Challenge with a contest!

From March to July we will be playing other Recharged titles.  After the last game, we will hold a drawing for the winner's choice of one (1) Atari VCS Modern Controller or (1) VCS Classic Joystick Controller!

All challenge participants will receive one (1) entry for each challenge in which they submit a valid score!

The top scorer of each challenge will receive three (3) additional entries - for a total of four (4) entries in a single challenge!

In addition, the top scorer in each of our first five (5) Recharged Squad Challenges will get a ClubVCS button pack celebrating Atari's Recharged series!

This contest is open to everybody, including Atari I/O Moderators, with a U.S. or Canada mailing address. It's really easy, all you have to do is participate be a Club VCS member and participate in our Recharged Squad Challenges.

My first submission 42,130 using a Modern Controller.

Because of the funky way the Recharged titles show the score and with the advent of online leaderboards, we can either accept in-game leaderboards or online VCS AtariOS leaderboard photos. Of course, you can post a video of your attempt too!

Here's my score both ways.

I have this game on Windows PC!  I know the score won't count, but I'm going to join in and play.  I appreciate the impetus to give it a try.

 

Happy to have you join in @RickR! Let us know what you think!

47,520 with the Modern Controller.

I decided to do a quick capture as an example of a video submission. This is straight capture without commentary.  Of course you can do it any way you choose!  Some folks live stream or comment as they play.  I'm not good enough for all of that. 😉

PC version.  This game is awesome.  Clearly I need more practice.

Glad that you're checking it out @RickR!

One of the things about the Recharged series is that the challenge levels really teach you how to use certain power-ups. Spending time going through the challenges will help your performance in the arcade mode.

I'm just curious what type of controller you all are using for this game.  I started with a mouse, but that seems way too sensitive (I'll bet there's a setting for that). 

I'm using the VCS Modern Controller, which is an Xbox One style gamepad. This game was designed for gamepad I personally find it the most natural to use the analog thumbstick. The Classic Joystick works well too.
