Trivia

1001 Video Games

The Arcade version of Gyruss appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.

Music

The theme music for this game is from the 18th century. While not a complete arrangement of the piece, Toccata and Fugue in D Minor was written by J.S. Bach. The electronic drums are introduced for a more contemporary touch.

Speccy port

The game was also announced by Parker Brothers for the ZX Spectrum, and not as a common tape game, but for the seldom-used cartridge port found ZX Interface 2. Parker later withdrew its announcement, both for Gyruss and Star Wars, though the latter was picked up by Domark.
