GYRO is a simple game of reflex-based color matching created by Submachine Factory. It's one of those games that are perfect for short bursts of play, providing ample amounts of challenge to train your reaction times and hand-eye coordination. Simply drag and rotate the circle on the screen (or use the bar at the bottom for fine control), moving it so its three color slices catch the appropriately colored particles floating in from outside. Capture more and you'll increase your score multiplier, but get one wrong and it resets. Now your only goal is this: score as many points as you possibly can!
In addition to simple viral neutralizations (which is apparently what you're doing by catching discs), GYRO also throws various power-ups your way, including bombs and health-restoring orbs. Catch the wrong disc on the wrong color and you'll notice that piece of the circle starts to fade. If it reaches the center, your game ends. The longer you keep going the higher your score will go, and if you enable the online leaderboards, you can get some serious competition going on.
GYRO offers several unlockable bonuses for earning certain amounts of points, including alternate 8-bit sound effects and a special high stakes pro mode. You can even switch on color blind mode, which is a rare feature we're always glad to see included in games that are focused on color-specific gameplay. To top it all off, GYRO is an enormously stylish game, proving that the developer didn't just slap some code together and call it complete. So if you're in the mood for a little distraction that can lead to a serious addiction, don't be shy, give this free game a try!
