Centipede Trak-Ball - Atari 7800



Homebrew author Ken Siders (b*nQ, Beef Drop) has modified Centipede for the Atari 7800 to support the Atari CX-22 Trak-Ball controller. The original arcade game sports a trak-ball controller, and now you can enjoy Centipede on your Atari 7800 as the original designers intended!

In addition to supporting the CX-22 Trak-Ball, Centipede Trak-Ball will also work with many CX-80 Trak-Ball controllers as many of them operate internally as a CX-22. Two players can share one Trak-Ball for two-player games.

Just got it %u2026 really good. The centipede is more aggressive (faster) than the non- TB version at standard setting. Spider seems about the same. Scores are lower than the regular version but, time may change that. I do recommend it.

If you truly love Centipede, then you want native Trak-Ball mode. And Centipede-TB on the 7800 delivers it courtesy of the late Ken Siders' coding efforts.

The game supports either the Atari CX22 and/or the CX80 Trak-Ball Controllers. You don't even have to have two of the same model for the 2-player modes; you could have one of each and it'll still work.

I seriously wish this version had been available straight from Atari Corp back in 1986!

Centipede TB is excellent! If you have a single Trak-Ball controller, you can choose from the One Player or Two Player Alternating modes. However, IMHO this game really comes to life with two Trak-Ball controllers, which allow you to choose from Dual Player Competition or Team Play modes.

Dual player competition pits you against your opponent and actually allows you to shoot your opponent. Team Play is a true co-op effort, in which both players combine to attack those pesky centipedes, spiders, fleas and scorpions. This mode aggregates both scores for an overall HS, while also displaying each individual’s score, so you can still claim bragging rights.

The Trak-Ball support is silky smooth and turns an already great game into a must buy. This is one game that truly brings the arcade experience into your home. - Thank you Ken Siders.

If you own a Trak-Ball controller, this is a MUST OWN. The movement is smooth and responsive. With a Trak-Ball, this is, without a doubt, the definitive port of Centipede out there. You can't get any more authentic than this. Buy this now! You won't regret it.
