Wandering into an enchanted forest, a lonely garden Gnome finds itself surrounded by succulent mushrooms… the mushrooms are not alone though. Roaming this enchanted forest, the Gnome discovers the ruler of this magic land: the ravenous Centipede! Armed only with wits and trusty magic wand, the Gnome must beat back the advancing Centipede and its army of beastly bugs!
In Atari’s Centipede, designers Jon Gilmour (Dead of Winter), Nicole Klein, and Anthony Amato (Laser Ryders) has 2 or 4 players venturing into the world of classic arcade gaming. On one side, a player controls the Gnome, exploring the forest and trying to defeat the Centipede. On the other side, the Centipede player, eager to destroy the Gnome, must wiggle their way to the other end of the board.
The Gnome player rolls and spends their dice to perform actions, while the Centipede player uses a deck of cards to spawn Fleas, Spiders, and Mushrooms, trying to control the game board. Players are armed only with their wits in this race to eliminate their opponent, take control of the enchanted forest, and win the game.
