The sequel to the world famous Centipede, Millipede, like its predecessor, takes place in an enchanted, mushroom-ridden forest. Once again, players use a trackball to control a magic wand that can maneuver in all directions along the bottom 1/5th of the screen. However, Instead of shooting centipedes, players fire at millipedes (hence the clever title). The spiders make a return engagement, but new enemies such as bees, beetles, mosquitoes, dragonflies, earwigs and inchworms have replaced fleas and scorpions. Also new are DDT bombs, which appear on the field randomly and can be detonated with a single shot, resulting in several bug casualties if timed properly. Obviously, Millipede lacks the originality of Centipede, but it does have better graphics (including slanted, two-tone mushrooms), more variety, and higher degrees of challenge and intensity. ~ Brett Alan Weiss, All Game Guide
