Here is my Version of Atari's arcade classic shooter Centipede.
In 1980 Dona Bailey developed the arcade game Centipede for Atari.
It was the first arcade game designed by a woman and became one of the most successful
arcade video games (see: Killer List of Video Games).
My kids and I already had a lot of fun with this Pico8-Centipede-Version and we are working
on an update! Wait and see!!...
Great graphics and all, @lummi, but is decidedly harder to play compared to the original because of Pico-8's smaller resolution and using 8-vertical pixels per mushroom.
As you can see there are a lot more vertical levels to place the mushrooms.
Here is a video of the original arcade:
Suggest Mushrooms take 6 or less pixels of vertical space and the Centipede itself only travels down 6-pixels as well.
Also even holding down the firing button as they all came down a narrow corridor I could not shoot them all and was overrun. You can do so in the original. I think the shooting speed is too slow perhaps is why this happens.
