Gyruss Atari 2600 review. http://www.ClassicGameRoom.com Shop CGR shirts, hats, mugs & gear! http://www.CGRstore.com Classic Game Room reviews GYRUSS for Atari 2600 from Parker Brothers released in 1984, based on the amazing 1983 Konami arcade game! Gyruss is a lot of game for the Atari 2600 to handle and it shows, but it still plays and rocks the old school (off key) beat in the process!

You use the joystick.

Is this version played with the joystick or the driving controller?

A real gem from the early days of gaming. Yeah it has it's flaws, but considering the time-frame they're pretty excusable. Pretty much every game created was a leap forward into unknown territory.

At the very least, the game made great use of the 2600's color palate, so even if the game-play is a tad lackluster, it certainly looks good while it does it's thing. Another superb review CGR! Rock on!
