Millenipede - Created by Prospero (Rating 100%)

50% centipede, 50% millipede, 100% 3rd millenium
Created using Blitz Max > WindowsView Worklog (0 entries)
Millenipede 1.2.0 for Windows
Millenipede 1.2.0 for Intel Mac
Millenipede is a fast-paced arcade shoot 'em up inspired by the classic Atari game Centipede. It was originally developed in less than seven days for the 94th Wednesday Workshop right here at SoCoder, but since then it's sort of grown and developed a life of its own - nothing groundbreaking, but curiously good fun!

Your aim is to zap all of the millenipedes on each wave while dodging spiders, snails and of course the millenipedes themselves. They'll make their way down the screen until eventually they hit the bottom, at which point they will roam around the player area until you shoot them. Don't tarry too long, though, or the warden will come looking for you...

Each dead millenipede will, for some environmentally friendly reason, grow into a mushroom (or other piece of debris). These serve no purpose aside from blocking the movement of other millenipedes and hindering your bullets. Each mushroom takes four shots to completely destroy.

If you touch any enemy, be it a millenipede, spider or snail, you lose a life - but if you can manage to shoot them first then a nice points bonus will head your way. See how long you can survive and aim for the top spot on the highscore table!

SOURCE CODE
The game's source code (for both the latest version and the original 7-day workshop version) is available from the downloads section of the Millenipede homepage at:

This is a fun and well-made little retro-y remake, complete with interesting enemies and flashy particle effects with a retro twist. Honestly, I find myself still coming back to it again and again just to see if I can beat my highscore.

Great little game to fire up quickly and pass a few minutes with.

The new version is awesome.

I'm not sure why I didn't notice this when it was on the homepage...

It's an all around solid retro game. Excellent. And the retro-y particle effects are outstanding.

Gonna go play more.
