Atari has released a new game for iOS (and Android) based on the classic coin-op arcade game Centipede. Centipede: Origins is now available for download and it costs 99 cents. It works natively on both iPhone and iPad.
Players must repel centipedes and other bugs as they try to protect their garden. All new upgradable weapons and gadgets have been added, like Grenades, Boom Shot, the Fly Trap and Time Warp, with more to come, according to the developer. Coins to upgrade weapons and gadgets are acquired either through in-game accomplishments or in-app purchase. Achievements and rankings are tracked on leaderboards and shared through Facebook and Twitter.
