Interesting Facts about Gyruss: Developed by Konami, and released in 1983. It was designed by Yoshiki Okamoto, who had earlier created Time Pilot for Konami. The game's background music consists of portions of J. S. Bach's Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565, in a modern rock style. Gyruss was the first arcade game to use stereo sound.

This is the cartridge version of Gyruss for the Atari 8-bit. We currently have the cartridge only.
