While talk of Galaga and Tempest is more common when people search for Okamoto's influences (who left Konami and joined Capcom after pay disputes arising from this game), it'd be far more reasonable and accurate to crown Gyruss as Space Invaders 2.
The game itself is not bad either, highlighted by double-fire power-ups, fun challenge stages, cool outer space graphics, and planetary progression between levels. One of the better aspects of the game is that extra points are granted for destroying a wave of enemies while it is still in formation. Gyruss is often referred to as a combination of Galaga and Tempest.
