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.
No box or manual is included with Centipede Trak-Ball. Supports NTSC television format.
|Number of Players||1 - 2|
|Controller||Atari CX-22 Trak-Ball|
|Program Modifications||Ken Siders|
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!
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.
