Many a child of the 70s and 80s remembers a simpler time in the world of gaming. A time when beeps and boops were the only soundtrack a game needed and, so long as the critters running around the screen actually looked a little bit like invading bug monsters from outer space, the graphics were considered A-OK. Atari will be revisiting that era of gameplay with the recently announced Centipede: Origins, though likely will a heck of a lot more bells and whistles than the original arcade hit.
Releasing for iDevices and Android products, Centipede: Origins puts the player in the shoes of a noble gnome, struggling to protect his garden from an invading insect force. Players will have access to all sorts of weapons and gadgets this time around, such as grenades and a horde of fighting mushroom men. In-game currency can be picked up on the battlefield to upgrade weapons, or you could spend a few more of your own dollars to speed up the process.
Centipede:Origins comes with four unlockable environments and boasts a full assortment of achievements to unlock. You can also check out how your best score is doing on the in-game leaderboards and post your biggest accomplishments via Twitter or facebook.
You can pick up Centipede: Origins for $0.99 on iOS by clicking right here, or on Android by clicking right here.
