"I really love the simple premise, and you ability to hurl food in a rapid-fire manner is immensely satisfying."

 

I'm guessing you meant "your ability to hurl food" but you should change it to "the ability to hurl food".

I don't have this particular version of Centipede, instead an Arcade port on the PC but it is indeed one of the best retro games out there.  Personally I way prefer it to Pac-man, something about Pac-man never really gelled with me.

Bluemonkey-I thought the 7800 versions of Asteroids and CENTIPEDE were BETTER than the coin-ops. Expecially Centipede, some complain about the big screen border and slightly different graphics, but a careful look will show that these are MORE detailed than the coin-op, and for once the 7800 sound effects are really good too! Most impressive are the two player play and how it handles with a trackball! I can't believe the VGC only thought the Tball was"ok", it MAKES the game! Unlike the 2600 centipede (which moves at the same speed regardless of the controller) the Tball really zooms your gun around! I also appreciate the novice, intermidiate and difficult modes. It is easily one of the top 5 7800 games, up there with Ms.Pac-Man and Asteroids!

I just played the 7800 Ms. Pac-Man again last night. After playing SNES Ms. Pac-Man for a week, I have to say I don't see why everyone says the 7800 ms. Pac is the best- for coin-op fidelity on 8-bit, I would say the XE Ms.Pac was better! The graphics are very blocky, the controls are terrible and worst of all the SOUND is simply TERRIBLE!....instead of "waka waka waka" we get "BLOIP BLOIP BLOIP!", the fruit sounds like a crusher at work instead of "Thump-thump", and the monsters , when blue, make this irritating "oooooh-oooooh-ooooh-oooh-oooh!" sound! The colors, details and intermissions are okay but really, I'll take Atari XE, or even the 2600 over this, not to mention the arcade perfect NAMCO collection versions and 16-bit Genesis/SNES (which, as I said, are better than the coin-op!)

Sorry Atarifever! (it's still a top 5 game FOR THE SYSTEM)
