Gyro+ Spins Its Way on to the App Store

London, UK - 25 October 2012 - Independent game developer and publisher Vivid Games today announced the launch of their latest game for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch Gyro+. Already a smash hit on other platforms, Gyro+ was originally developed by Submachine Factory. Gyro+ is an old school style arcade game in which players rotate a multi-coloured wheel through 360 degrees whilst ensuring that the coloured balls flying onto the screen land in the matching part of the wheel.

Gamers hoping for a gentle walk in the park shouldn’t be fooled by Gyro+’s ultra-simple gameplay and one finger control. As time progresses, Gyro+ ratchets up the difficulty curve by throwing in more balls at greater speed making it a fast-paced game of skill and nerves. The aim of the game is for players to last as long as possible and rack up massive scores by unleashing a range of power ups including blast waves, shields and drones. Gyro+ also features two gameplay modes, a host of unlockables and full Game Center integration to allow gamers to challenge their friends’ high scores.

“Gyro+ marries ultra-simple controls with fiendishly addictive gameplay to give gamers that ‘just one more go’ factor” said Remigiusz Koscielny, CEO of Vivid Games. “Gyro+ is pure arcade gameplay at its best, created to test any gamer’s skills to the max!” added Koscielny.

Gyro+ is available immediately to download as a universal app priced at £0.59/$0.99/€ 0.79
