Atari seem to have released two distinct versions of Centipede for the 400/800/XL/XE computers.

In addition to the original 1982 release, there's also a noticably different- and somewhat more polished- version that appears to be an XL/XE transfer of the version written for the 5200 console.

The "5200" version appears on at least one late-80s Atari compilation (and possibly elsewhere?)

It's not that bad. I have played both Atari 5200 and Atari 800 versions and I prefer the Atari 800 version. The graphics are much cleaner looking and obviously the digital joystick makes things a lot more accurate to move things around. Trackball makes you doubt if you are all the way at the bottom or not given the rolling nature of the ball.

Ugh. I don't understand why this version is so lousy, especially after playing the 5200 port. The centipede moves very choppy and when you die there isn't even an explosion! Just a little static. FAIL.
