Strangely, the name "Gyromite" appears nowhere within the game. Rather, the program titles itself "Robot Gyro
." Anyway, whatever you call it, this was a quickly-tossed-off U.S. launch
game, built to support the NES
add-on. For what it was, Gyromite was surprisingly not-entirely-awful. It usually worked better, however, with a second person (Frank
?!) pressing the button
s R.O.B. was supposed to control...
It involved steering a professor through girder-y mazes, defusing bombs.
