Game Review: Centipede

Monday, July 4, 2011

It's been a while, but I decided to review another classic!

Reason:
I got this game when I was about 8, I just couldn't complete it alone. So I always invited a friend over to play it with me, but we still couldn't beat the game. There would always be this one level that we couldn't beat, so I decided to grab my old CD, and install it again. I'm quite good at the game now, so I think it's time for a little review!

Gameplay:
You are a little guy named Wally, your village is under the attack by centipedes! Your goal is to destroy all of them, and restore peace. However, it's a really hard task because you'll have to deal with all kind of other enemies too! Your main enemies are obviously the centipedes, each time you enter a level, centipedes will spawn. It's your goal to make sure the centipedes do not destroy the village, the game can be played in Top-down mode, or a behind the Shoulder like style. Here are screenshots of both perspectives:

Behind the Shoulder: 

Top-down:
Screenshots are from Gamespot.com, I do not own them.

Graphics:
Hmm, this is a hard one. The game got released on different platforms, but I'm going to talk about the PC graphics. The PC Graphics are quite nice for it's time, a very low amount of polygons has been used for the models, but that makes a lot of sense since the PC version got released in 1999. Conclusion: Nice graphics for it's time.

Sound:
The sounds are bad, period. Even for it's time. However this should not ruin the fun! 

Scores:
Gameplay: 7/10
Graphics: 6/10
Sound: 4/10
Total: 5.7

This game looks kind of retro to me with the way the graphics are. This is a great write up mate, I like how you're personal about your reviews in an informal way.
