    Centipede Origins is true to the arcade classic in pretty much every way that one could want, while adding enough features to keep a new generation of gamer interested.

    A commendable refresh of a classic from gaming's prehistory, Centipede: Origins expands on the core gameplay of the original to deliver a fun and addictive experience.

    Fans of the original will be glad to have the game in their pocket, while newcomers should have no trouble grasping the simple controls and play style.

    Not a bad game. It's just kind of bland. Fans of Centipede might enjoy an iPad-friendly version of the game, and it does have gnomes in it. Everything is better with gnomes. It just doesn't take a lot of risks, doesn't do anything particularly unexpected.

    Centipede: Origins is a fun upgrade to a classic shooter, but until updates address the poor interface design, this is a game suited primarily for iPad users alone.

    Centipede Origins keeps the classic formula intact, while introducing fun new elements and a vibrant visual style to update it for modern smartphones.

    Centipede has gotten a graphical facelift, but now the game has nothing to make it unique.
