Atari today announced the launch of Centipede and Millipede, two of Atari’s best loved coin-op classics, onto Xbox LIVE Arcade. With Centipede and Millipede on Xbox LIVE Arcade, Atari delivers the same gaming sights, sounds and action as the originals. In addition to the classic form of each title, gamers can also play evolved, enhanced versions that include new graphics, sounds and special effects.
“Atari’s ‘Centipede’ and ‘Millipede’ on Xbox LIVE Arcade are great examples of classic games taken to the next level. The evolved versions of both games provide gamers with the gameplay they know and love, and are now stunningly rendered in high definition graphics,” said Chris Early, product unit manager for Microsoft Casual Games. “Now that gamers have direct access to ‘Centipede’ and ‘Millipede’ through Xbox LIVE Arcade, it will be easier than ever for fans of all ages to enjoy these classics just like gamers did in neighborhood arcades decades ago.”
