GYRO is an arcade game that will get you hook due to its simplicity
Gameplay can't be simpler: use the touchscreen to control a wheel divided in three equal slices. Each slice is set in a different color (blue, purple and orange). Some balls (with the same colors of the slices) will approach the wheel, spin the wheel and match colors, collect power ups and earn achievements.
As its developers (Submachine Factory) say, GYRO is an easy to play but hard to master game. And it's true: complexity increases as you last. The more balls you match in a row, the higher the multiplier will be. The game is set in a cool minimalistic layout. Simplicity regarding graphics doesn't affect playability, rather the opposite. Screentouch response is perfect (this is the most important thing).
You better have nerves of steel if you want to get high scores. If you achieve it, you can submit it on online leaderboards provided by Swarm. There are lots of achievements to unlock too.
Simplicity and high playability.

GYRO, the massive smash hit that's had thousands of Android gamers glued to their screens just got better! It now comes packed with extra game modes and features including Time Attack mode, player ranks and extra unlockable wheel colour sets.
GYRO is a wonderfully simple yet fiendishly addictive arcade puzzle game like none you’ve ever seen before; a game of pure old school arcade beauty that serves up that ‘just one more go’ factor in spades.
Use one finger to rotate the multi-coloured wheel 360 degrees whilst making sure that the coloured balls flying onto the screen land in the matching part of the wheel. Sounds easy? Throw in more balls and increasingly faster speed over time and GYRO becomes a fast-paced game of skill and nerves, urging you to collect power-ups, rack up massive scores and last as long as you can whilst your skills are tested to the absolute max!
