Atari Centipede is an arcade game with a fixed shooter. You must use your bug blaster to repel centipedes, spiders, scorpions, and fleas! Survive as long as you can in this exciting game! Small darts will be fired by the bug blaster at the segmented centipede. The centipede's body is made up of 10 to 12 parts, including the head. When shot, each segment of the centipede transforms into a mushroom. Each piece continues on its own path down to you! Only by shooting his head will the centipede be destroyed.
