arcade (1982, Atari)
As the sequel to Centipede, Millipede doesn’t break a lot of new ground, but it’s still a very solid, challenging game. As in the original, an multi-segmented arthropod quickly advances through a mushroom field, attempting to kill the player’s avatar. The millipede is joined by several new insectoid partners, creating a busier game field, offset by extremely convenient DDT deposits that must have been left behind by dirty corporations.
Millipede was inducted on April 7th, 2009.
