[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - Independent game developer and publisher Vivid Games today is thrilled to announce the launch of their latest game for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, Gyro+. Already a smash hit on other platforms, Gyro+ was originally developed by Submachine Factory. Gyro+ is an old school style arcade game in which players rotate a multi-coloured wheel through 360 degrees whilst ensuring that the coloured balls flying onto the screen land in the matching part of the wheel.
Gamers hoping for a gentle walk in the park shouldn't be fooled by Gyro+'s ultra-simple gameplay and one finger control. As time progresses, Gyro+ ratchets up the difficulty curve by throwing in more balls at greater speed making it a fast-paced game of skill and nerves. The aim of the game is for players to last as long as possible and rack up massive scores by unleashing a range of power ups including blast waves, shields and drones. Gyro+ also features two gameplay modes, a host of unlockables and full Game Center integration to allow gamers to challenge their friends' high scores.
