A long time ago, in the arcades, a game was released which caught the eye of arcade enthusiasts. The game was Centipede, and since then all of the home micros have had their own versions of the game, including the Beeb, with Bug Blasters. This version from Watford Electronics is much better, much faster, and much harder.

The game takes place in a mushroom patch full of creepy crawlies, such as centipedes, spiders, fleas and scorpions. The object is to keep these undesirables at bay, by shooting them down. The scorpion is particularly troublesome, poisoning the mushrooms, and consequently making the centipede, your principal adversary in this game, extremely difficult to deal with.

Overall, this is a very good game, and the graphics and speed are of a high standard.
