Centipede; Atari 7800; Difficulty: Novice

Controller: Sega Genesis Game Pad. This game is, of course, also compatible with the 7800 ProLine Controller. I believe that it also supports the Atari Trak-Ball Controller. However I don't own one so can't test this. I really need a Trak-Ball Controller, as Atari Age keeps releasing games re-coded for it as part of their Trak-Ball Series. Two of the games in that series are Centipede and Millipede for the 2600.

Was just playing Missile Domination (Missile Command) on the Intellivision and thinking how much better it would be on Atari with the Trak-ball. Does it not work with Missile Command then?

Yes vote! ... This is so close to top spot, Mark! I don't know whether to say 'well done' or 'hard luck'! Maybe both? ;-)

Yes from Fort Atari. Nice score and an excellent port indeed. As usual, the ProSystem delivers ( but duh right!?) Missile command hasn't been reworked to include Trakball!? Maybe the 5200 version!? I'm not a 5200 afficianado so I haven't the foggiest.

@PacChamp:

just in case, I think Missile Command TB is for 2600.

and I bet you're right about 5200 Missile Command supporting TB!

Yes, all of the Trak-Ball releases from Atari Age, including Missile Command Trak-Ball, are for the 2600 (that I'm aware of).
