"It seems like companies are raping ABA Games' games lately."
Was that in reference to Blast Works? If so, I'd have to disagree, Kenta Cho (of ABA Games) gave Blast Works his blessings and is fully credited for the concept. I think Blast Works pays nice homage to his original design and shmups in general, the package also featured 4 original titles by Kenta Cho, including Torus Trooper. So if Gyrostarr is really that similar, I think I'll just continue to play Torus Trooper on my Wii.
