Description

CX-5248. North America NTSC. 1 player or 2 players alternating.
A prototype dated 1984-01-31 is finished and ready for release. Here come the millipedes to rampage your mushroom garden. They bring with them, Bees, Beetles, Dragonflies, Earwigs, Inchworms, Mosquitoes, Spiders. Don't expect the old enemies to behave normally, they have new tactics including coordinated group attacks and building a mushroom fort is not as reliable. With new enemies comes a new weapon, the DDT bomb. This sequel to Centipede was originally called Centipede Plus. This version of the game was canceled by Jack Tremiel as part of his effort to make Atari a computer only company.
