Existence of Centipede/Millipede prototypes for the NES?

Recommended Posts

This is fantastic, thanks to everyone involved for preserving this.

Wow, this is really cool, despite being unfinished.

I don't think the "scrolling" option does anything?

DDT graphics are in here, but not implemented at all.

FOUR-PLAYER SIMULTANEOUS CO-OP woah (too bad it won't work with the FourScore though).

Buttons seem to be all wrong for players 3 and 4 though, or maybe that's just FCEUX?

Interesting that Namco was going to publish it?

If I'm not mistaken, NAMCO had the licenses for ATARI titles in Japan.

Just to record this somewhere:

 

This was hand-assembled by bunnyboy, not built cleanly as they would have at the time, as we don't have a complete repo or understanding of the build tools. It is POSSIBLE that something is wrong here, but probably not.

 

This project was by Atari for Namcot in Japan for the Famicom specifically, this was never a planned U.S. title, it's an unreleased Famicom game. Documentation in the repo shows that they halted development when they realized they didn't actually have the full rights to the game. There was some discussion about re-theming the game to a space themed Millipede clone, but that probably never went anywhere.
