Emulation
Guides on emulating older games

The arcade classic is reimagined in a 3D setting, with powerups to collect, NPCs to defend, and a dozen new enemies to contend with.

The story begins every hundred years. It always begins the same way, with a Legend awakening. Legend says that a multitude of armored beasts emerge from the dark core of the Earth. They swarm to the surface drawn by their master. Every hundred years they try to overtake our world, and we always think we've destroyed them. The Legend also has it that every hundred years, we're wrong!

When word came down that the Legend had come to life, we built The Shooter, but we needed a hero to fly it. This year the magic stick didn't point to the usual hero. It pointed to Wally Gudmunzsun. Now Wally wasn't one of your usual heroes. In fact, he wasn't a hero at all. He was just a simple bean counter. But when you're asked to save the world, you don't ask why. You just make it happen.

This remake was designed by Richard Rouse III (Odyssey: The Legend of Nemesis, Damage Incorporated).

1st download is a Toast image of the game partition
2nd download is Centipede.bin and .cue It contains the game and audio tracks.
3rd download is a tiny "noCD" image for mounting (ddsk okay) when running Centipede files installed on a harddrive, tested works on both the OS9 and OSX editions of Centipede.

*The OSX-only edition of this very same game is here.

I tested this game in Mac OS 9.2.2 and the Classic environment of Mac OS X 10.4.11. This game works on a 2003 Power Mac G4 MDD (1.25 GHz).

The OSX version in this dL was said to be experimental (it was yr 2001), by the time Tiger the greatest OS came along in 2005, this OSX version isn't working with my Tiger. See the link in page description for the OSX 2004 edition of Centipede which does work.

The new "noCD" is just an empty folder named Centipede imaged using Disk Copy 6.3.3

The bin/cue (DL #2) seems to have been made with a late version of Toast. These bin/cue pairs are not in standard form and cannot be used successfully with Toast 7 or Windows tools such as ImgBurn or UltraISO. The bin/cue here is no exception. Toast 7 does not recognise it as valid. ImgBurn refuses to proceed with a message about an incorrect cue sheet. It is possible to use UltraISO to convert the bin/cue here to another version that Toast 7 will recognise but the CD burn from it does not complete. It is also possible to burn a CD using using Alcohol 120% on Win but that CD does not mount properly on a Mac.

In short, the bin/cue here is next to useless. I see two solutions:

(1) Create a new bin/cue from an original CD using standard tools on Windows (e.g. ImgBurn or UltraISO). Do not use any version of Toast.

(2) If an original CD is not available, try to burn a CD from the bin/cue here using a late version of Toast. If the CD checks out to be OK then follow point (1) above using the burnt CD.

Hot diggity. It's got the arcade emulated version in here too (screenshot #2) and it lets an optical mouse be used like it's the arcade trackball controller. The sequel and threequel versions here are fun too.

2 downloads are the exact same size, a mistake?

@scott Praed: The file name Audio_CD_Centipede.toast suggests this is a mixed mode CD with audio tracks as well as the data (game) track. If so, it would be good to make a bin/cue image of the CD (use ImgBurn or UltraISO in Windows) to capture the audio tracks as well, because the Toast image will not contain the audio tracks.
