From the far reaches of Neptune, to the safe haven of Earth--battle your way across the Universe in this exciting adventure based on the popular arcade game.
Suspense builds with every beat of thrilling and dramatic music--perhaps unlike any video game music you've ever heard before! To these compelling strains, you'll fend off unremitting waves of spiraling, swirling alien ships. Piloting your spacecraft in a circular flight pattern, blast these fiendish intruders with your rapid-fire lasers--before they vaporize you. And watch out for killer meteors and deadly satellites along the way!
Reach one planet and you'll have just enough time to catch your breath for the next--and more difficult--wave of enemy attacks that separate you from eventually reaching the sanctuary of Earth!

300 Billion People Are Counting On You – So Don’t Choke!It’s A.D. 2500 and mankind has penetrated the galaxy’s fringes, establishing colonies of peace from Mercury to Pluto.
Suddenly, the tranquility of the Milky Way erupts into a frothing fury as armadas of alien deathships swarm into our solar system like killer bees preying on an innocent bystander. No one is spared. Even beloved Mother Earth is stung.
These vicious cosmic Visigoths are war starved Gyrusians. And, led by the immortal Genghis Khan (whom they recruited from Mongolia centuries ago), they’re out to trash civilization.
With our galactic fleet flattened, you’re the lone space cowboy who escaped the Gyruss shroud of doom. Now you must scorch through the galaxy, freeing planets by zapping endless enemy attacks with Neo-Bomb-Blastic Cannons and Ultra-Lazonic Phasers.
So prepare for the fight of your life. And don’t flinch, or else the entire universe will get pulverized!
For 1 player.
