Millipede Is The Empire Strikes Back of Video Games

Yeah, think about it!

The Empire Strikes Back was released in 1980, three years after its predecessor.

Millipede was released in 1982, two years after its predecessor.

Both Empire and Millipede are sequels to seminal classics; both vastly improve upon their kickass originals; both have newer heroes, newer villians, deeper intrigue, and are ultimately more satisfying.

My high score on my Atari Flashback 2 game, recorded last July, is 315,000.
