to MAME, this is a prototype of an arcade game. Whether or not
it was ever released is unknown to me. But this is a game that
every classic game fan has to download and enjoy! It is a
godsend for two player fans like myself and another reason why I
am hog wild this month!
is a 20th anniversary release for Atari. It features updated
versions of two Atari classic arcade games, Centipede and
Missile Command. Before you start screaming "Don't ruin my
classics", try these gems and see what is a great improvement!
The first and
most significant improvement for these games is the dual player
feature! Like Centipede on the Atari 7800, you have the ability
to play two people at once! Not only in Centipede, but also
Missile Command! Is that cool or what?
While the two
player feature is enough to warrant these sequels, you have more
features, namely improved graphics! While it is minimal in
Centipede, it is much more noticeable in Missile Command. Not
only do you have to save cities, but the cities are now named
and have a distinct look to each one. Washington DC, Moscow and
others are now targets and this adds to the game. There are also
improvements in the explosions and the planes and ships that fly
games are pretty much the same as we all remember them, these
small changes improve them greatly and will have you enjoying
those old classics one more time! Too bad they didn't do this
with more games.
This is just a review of
the arcade machine. If you are looking for the actual arcade
