Tips for Atari Centipede on AARP Games

We hope you're enjoying the new Atari Centipede on AARP Games. There are some nuances to the gameplay on desktop and mobile and we hope the following tips will help with your gaming experience. If you have a tip of your own to share, please do post a reply below. Thank you and enjoy!


Game-Specific Tips:


Centipede: The centipede will split in two if you shoot it down the middle. Aim for the head instead. Watch out for other insects, which can hurt the Bug Blaster, but can also give opportunities for more points.


Centipede: On mobile, for easiest play, use the AUTO shoot setting and drag your finger to move the shooter.



General Tips - All Atari Games:


On desktop or laptop, be sure to keep your cursor inside the gameplay area. Moving your cursor outside the gameplay area will pause the games. 


Using a mouse instead of your laptop’s touch pad can make for smoother play.


It is better to click rather than to use the space bar as instructed to start or resume a game. The space bar will sometimes cause the page to scroll, which we are in the process of correcting.

When playing on a computer, I've found that continuously holding down the space bar and using the arrow keys to move is a good hack.
