Great Shooter - but Millipede is better.
Technically Centipede suffers from Flickering and it's astounding that Millipede, although having much more Enemies on the Screen, does not have that Problem!
But Centipede's still great fun though and undoubtedly a Classic for the System!
I made sure to own the ATARI TRACK BALL for this game and Missile Command -made game play more fun and realistic !
If you want your supporting hand becoming an inflamation try out this one. Hours fun of heavy shooting to eliminate this ugly worm. Simple and good!
