Two of Atari?s best loved coin-op classics, ?Centipede? and ?Millipede,? will be available for download on Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360 beginning Wednesday, May 2 at 0900 GMT (2:00 a.m. Pacific).

The classic version of ?Centipede? challenges gamers to defend their villages against an onslaught of centipedes, spiders, army ants and more. Xbox LIVE Arcade gamers will also have access to an ?Evolved? version which features pre-rendered, high definition graphics, special effects like motion blur, trails and particle-based explosions that make this classic as enjoyable today as it was in the arcade decades ago.

In ?Millipede,? the primary challenge is to obliterate chains of arthropods that creep down from the top of the screen. Scattered mushrooms are the gamers? main tool to shoot, destroy and redirect the menacing millipedes. ?Millipede? also offers up Xbox LIVE Arcade gamers an ?Evolved? version of this coin-op classic.
