Centipede and Millipede are two classic arcade games that were released for download last week via Xbox Live Arcade. The games come as an addition that might tug at the heart strings of some of the older gamers on Xbox Live, and leave some of the younger ones in the dust. The titles were stalwarts in the arcades of yore, complete with some of the best arcade cabinet art to this day, and were played with a trackball and just one button. The games translate extremely well to the much more powerful Xbox 360, and comes complete with a couple extra modes, as well as achievements (and everyone loves achievements). This game is a must-have for any retro-gamer worth his quarters.
Coming in at 400 MS Points ($5 in the real world) the games make up what could be the best value on the console (aside from the $2.50 download for Lego Star Wars that lets you play as all the characters from the first game). That’s $2.50 a piece for two classic games that come complete with a graphically remixed mode, and an extremely challenging, super-fast Throttle Monkey mode, making the games entirely worth their price.
