Centipede: Origins is a modern update of Atari's classic Centipede game, but it fails to do anything particularly inventive with the conceit.

What's New

Winter finally arrived in Centipede: Origins!

Celebrate the Winter Holidays with festive lights, fluffy snow and eye-catching Christmas decorations!

The gnomes were busy fixing (and squashing) some bugs so that you could enjoy smoother gameplay over the Holidays.

Visit often since the gnomes have some EXTRA SURPRISES shortly for all you to enjoy and help you rid those pesky Centipedes and other creepy crawlies!

Get into the holiday spirit and check out all the new stuff!
