An updated version of the (very) retro arcade classic centipede.

Your mission is simple: shoot everything that moves, and if it doesn't move, shoot it anyway.

Move with the mouse, you're guns fire automatically.

This is the sequel/rewrite of my previous game Electropede.
The gameplay is very similar but there's some more powerups, more levels and I've redesigned nearly all the graphics.
I'm not sure if any of thats actually improved anything, but I really love centipede so I wanted to have another go at it.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Really awesome arcade shooting game !!!
If you reach higher levels it ends in an strategic fight for keeping a constant upgrade flow to constantly keep the enemies away from you. Also requires fast and highly accurate mouse movements.
This game keeps my attention from time to time since its release now for ~1,5 years

But... Your highscore-upload-function doesn't work always.
Made it from lvl 63 to 67 in one run, had to pause the game for a few hours in between and made 7,8mio points. Pressed uploiad, but it didn't show in the highscore list...

I think there's a timeout function on how long a web session can last so if you paused the game for a very long time it may have timed-out.... I only recently realised this could happen, so I'm not sure how or even if it's possible to re-start a session after a timeout - I'll look into it anyway...

I don't think I'll be able to look at centipede the same way ever again.

Vibe13 responds:

I hope you mean that in a good way :)

I've always thought centipede was a deceptive game: it looks really cute with all those garden critters running around, but the gameplay is deadly focused shmup action.

WOW! Super cool and way too addicting of a game. Graphics are great, movement is smooth and visually very appealing. I do wish the power-ups would last longer but I am glad this is a mouse game versus using a keyboard. So as a game to come back to and play (again and again), this has recently become one of my favorites. OUTSTANDING PLAY!

Vibe13 responds:

aw thanks man! glad you liked it.

Maybe the power-ups do stop too quickly: I wanted to keep it a bit 'frantic' - I may have gone too far.

Just like ANY of your games, another perfect piece! It gets hard as hell but that's the trick, right?
Since old-school memories have been brought up by someone else, I just go saying, I would have bought it - just like Vectrix and Vector Rush!

Vibe13 responds:

I'm still struggling to get the difficulty curve right in my games: I'm old-school like you say, and that means making it hard. But then casual games tend to be a lot easier these days.

I'm trying to make something for everyone by starting out easy and then getting a lot more difficult - but I don't feel like I've managed to get the balance right yet.

Had a helluva time getting all those medals. The game really picks up after level 10 with all the powerups and enemies filling the screen, my only beef is that the ship moved at half the speed of my mouse, thanks for putting in fullscreen otherwise it would have been insanely frustrating because of the ships speed.

Vibe13 responds:

Yeah I spent most of my time testing it in fullscreen mode. I did double check all the medals are possible (even in window mode), but it was difficult even for me.

I made the first 10 levels pretty easy 'cuz "hey this is a casual game", and some people like it that way!
