Caterpillar (not to be confused with the Dave Edson Centipede clone of the same name), is a two player only, original arcade game that was never released until now. In the game, you control one of two caterpillar heads, and you are trying to eat various stationary or moving shapes, to grow your caterpillar longer. You have to avoid the spiders though; each time you hit one of them, your caterpillar will shrink. The number in the upper left of the screen is how many more shapes are available before you finish the current level.
