If you played Marble Madness or Spindizzy on a Spectrum machine, you started from the end, because Gyroscope was the first game of it's kind to appear on our little 48K machine.
Gyroscope is in fact the unofficial Spectrum release of the arcade game 'Marble Madness', and it got so popular with the critics (2nd place as game of the year 1985) that a year later Melbourne House got the arcade rights and released the official 'Marble Madness' conversion.

It's not as good as Marble Madness or Spindizzy, both games are bigger in levels and are smoother playing. But it's a lot straightforward and easier to play than Spindizzy and better looking than both games are.
So, a very worthwhile game to play if you love any of the others games.
