Protip: avoid Märchen Veil.

As far as shooters go, I spent the afternoon playing Centipede. What a great game. I love all the nuances to it: the "box" you're confined to, the way you can alter the centipede's trajectory, the poisoning of mushrooms, and so on. I was playing it on the 2600. My daughter has one of those Centipede mini-arcades.

2 player Centipede 7800 is my jam.

I spent a little time with the infamous Phalanx this morning. Seems pretty interesting gameplay-wise but I'm not a huge fan of the art style.

The complete lack of any intense banjo music does knock a point or two off.
