E3 First Impressions: Centipede: Infestation
Posted on Saturday, June 11 @ 01:22:00 PST by KevinS
The game played very little like the original Centipede; instead of going back to the vertically-based battle of wills, the insects come from all over the screen to try and overrun a hapless exterminator. During the fight, shooting certain special enemies will unlock power-ups like flame-throwers and faster, stronger machine guns to help wipe out the army of buggers. It's more like a run-and-gun Robotron 2084 title now, the only thing seemingly tying back into the original concept being a boss that's essentially the original centipede.
The Centipede comes back in the holiday season of this year. It's still in the early stages, so hopefully the play tightens up and can do one of my favorite arcade titles some true justice. I just hope it's not shovelware in the end.
