Nordic Competition in Centipede 2012

One centipede. One gnome. Some spiders and a whole lot of mushrooms.

It may sound weird, but the awesomely cool retro-hit ‘Centipede’ is back in action, and ready for it´s first Nordic Tournament EVER.

The only requirements for participating in the Centipede-Competition is a browser with HTML5 (Google Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer) and some easy preparations.


1. Shoot the advancing centipede before it hits you. Avoid spiders and other nasty surprises. Use Spacebar + WASD-keys.


1. Direct your browsers (Google Chrome or Internet Explorer) to Centipede-game HERE The game works on both Macs and Windows-pcs. If you want a game without commercials, you have to install Internet Explorer.

2. If you haven´t tried the game before, try it a few times before Nordic Game Day.

3. Print out THIS instruction-form and place it beside the computer for the players to see. Note: You have to decide how many times each player can try to beat their own highscore. 

4. Print out a bunch of THESE personal high-score-lists and place them beside the computer with a pen.

5.  Collect the personal high-score-lists after each player have finished playing. If time permits, make a “votingbox”, where they can drop in their personal score-list.

6. Look through the personal score-lists after Nordic Game Day and submit the highest highscore from your library using THIS online-form.

7. Nordic Game Program will compare the Centipede-scores across all participating libraries at Nordic Game Day and call out the three winners in the week after. The winners will be announced on the blog, on Facebook and will be contacted directly by mail.

    It says, : “Submit the higest score from your library HERE”, but there is no link…? and it says ONLY Acsess for librarians, Not players. Do I have to logg on or what?
