Centipede
Guy Lochhead, 13/06/10
1980 arcade game credited as being the first game to have a significant female player base. The player must try to prevent a descending centipede from reaching the bottom of the screen. I like the fact this game’s comparatively advanced gameplay didn’t prevent it from enjoying a huge fanbase. It significantly contributed to the evolution of the arcade into a legitimate youth social centre. I will try to include the arcade version of the game or, failing that, will include one of the home-gaming ports.
