Early version of Gyruss by Anthony Weber RELEASED!

Recommended Posts

Here is an early version of Anthony Weber's version of Gyruss.  This unfortunately lacks collision detection and more levels.  Music is pretty good though. 

 

The ship moves very smoothly as well, I really hope a later version is out there somewhere!

 

This is an autoboot disk. 

Gyruss (Weber).ATR

Even unfinished, it's amazing we get to see what the original game was to be, thanks so much!

 

Note that you can just pull out the AUTORUN.SYS file from the disk and rename it to .xex format :Gyruss.xex

 

Now that we're getting super thirsty, any chance of Eyes, the Scott, Foresman titles or the Atari educational programs?

Not familiar with the story... was the released Gyruss game based on
this code, or was it a completely different implementation? Atarimania
doesn't list an author for the Gyruss that got released...

It looks and feels like the same guy did both...The music is also the same in instrumentation and sound..Well at least to my music deaf / blind ears :)

There's not really much to review, you can't shoot anything, nothing can kill you so its a 1 screen only job :)

 

Unless someone has found a level skipper?
