A remake of the ATARI classic centipede

Okee, @Minion. I am not understanding the controls.

Mouse button to shoot and ... nothing else moves the player ?

Not sure why its not working. Works fine on my machine (and others) and no problem with ITCH.IO, just doesn't like it here. Strange.

I see the problem, @Minion. You are making use of stat(38) and stat(39) to move the player.

Unfortunately these status variables do not work online. So ... for me to repair your game, let me think, here now. This is a keyboard version, not mouse. It uses the UP DOWN LEFT RIGHT arrow keys to navigate and the 🅾️ key to both start and shoot.

Now that I can play it proper, Gold star all the way. :)

Why does this game not like using mouse online, but my other game (MineSweeper) using the same mouse controls works fine ?

Hi @Minion:

It is the stat(38) and stat(39) that both don't work online. Now if you want to write code to emulate that by reading the mouse normally and determining movement based upon its last position, it should work then.

Let me see, I'll write code to emulate it.

Try out this heavily documented code and see if it helps ...

good job

@Minion Could I possibly help out with the sound effects? I know how to properly recreate the spider sound and would be willing to experiment with the others too.

@B3RM4N80R yeah, sure. Knock yourself out. I have so many wips on the go that get to about 75% complete and never get finished due to my total inability to do anything with the sound effects or music. So yeah, be nice to have proper sounds for it.
