Reviews: 

 “ …we heartily recommend buying Centipede: Origins. It just goes to show that it’s possible to take an old classic and actually improve on it”

” The gameplay hasn’t aged a bit, and in fact it’s even better now. Great variety of environments, gadgets and weapons, and the touch controls are perfectly responsive”

If you can’t teach an old dog new tricks on the App Store, then you can always give it a fresh lick of paint, tart it up with a few new game modes and hope for the best. See Space Invaders Infinite Gene for the perfect example of how to take classic gameplay and evolve into an entirely new, but equally compelling, monster.
