Twyruss is a fun little Gyruss-inspired game/fidget that I made in a couple of hours in PICO-8 for TweetTweetJam4. The challenge of this jam was to create something fun to play in 560 characters (chars) or less.

While my initial idea had to be modified significantly, I was very happy to get this as pleasant-looking as it is in 555 chars.

Gameplay: Match your color with the orbs and bump into them to clear out your halo


  • Z/X to cycle colors
  • Left/Right arrows to slide your cursor around the halo

I liked this game a lot! Very calming and kind of satisfying to clear the ring if you leave it for a while.

My submission was inspired by your game. When I played it, I’ve realized that I want to create something with orbits and planets too. So, thank you!


Thanks for playing!

It makes me happy to hear that it helped sparked creativity in someone else : )
