Modern day Atari and Wayforward Technologies are reviving famous arcade shooter Centipede for Wii and 3DS. Centipede: Infestation, as it’s called, is a top-down shooter set in a wasteland, which is infested by mutants. The game is due for release in the Autumn.

You take control of teenager Max, whom must protect a girl called Maisy from the nastiness in this post-apocalyptic world. Maisy has the power to restore life, which is always handy.

I have very good memories of Centipede on the Atari 2600. It was a very simple idea, but at the time I certainly had a lot of fun with it.
