Reviews

"There’s lots to like about Unstoppable Gorg, and not just the neat presentation and excellent production: the actual tower-defence model is clever too." - Rock, Paper, Shotgun

"...an entertaining tribute to the alien-invasion movies of days gone by and an enjoyable tower defense game that requires you to think on your feet" Gamespot

"...a joy to behold for any sci-fi fan that knows there is a version of The Day The Earth Stood Still that doesn't star Keanu Reeves." Destructoid

About This Game

Get ready to experience a revolution in tower defense that will send you spinning. Unstoppable Gorg challenges you to defend the solar system from fearsome aliens by sending satellites into orbit. Unlike other tower defense games, in Unstoppable Gorg you can move your towers by rotating the orbits that surround planets, moons and space stations.
Unstoppable Gorg is a lovingly crafted homage to vintage sci-fi films from the 1950s. Flying saucers, rubbery aliens, dodgy effects, it's got it all. The game's story scenes were shot on film using models, miniatures and live action actors and then edited together with genuine archive footage to create a classic sci-fi experience that is out of this world.

Key Features:


  • Take on the Gorg in more than 40 challenging levels of revolutionary tower defense action.
  • Satellites in orbit replace the towers and grid layout used in other tower defense games.
  • Move your satellites around their orbits to create the best defense for each wave.
  • Experience a thrilling story inspired by the classic sci-fi films of the 1950s.
  • Unlock Steam achievements and earn your place on the leaderboards.
  • Glorious 3D graphics and effects for added impact.

A silly tower defense game. Fortunately, I happen to like silly tower defense games.
It offers a decent variety of towers and enemies, always a key ingredient. (Although I found some of the tower types more or less indispensable, and others pretty worthless.) You get money from killing enemies, but also from building generators, so there is that tension between investing and beefing up your defenses.

Lastly, the game brings us something new: orbiting towers. All your defenses must be placed at preset points in 2-4 rings surrounding your ship/station. These rings are fixed in distance from the center, and the build points are fixed in distance from each other, but the entire ring can be rotated. This lets you move your towers into position near the enemy's attack paths (highlighted by glowy dotted lines), or even follow a wave around to keep it in range longer. Since the levels are in space, with no real 'terrain', this is a good way of doing things.

One of the game's strongest points is actually not the system itself, but the whole aesthetic. The entire thing, down to the last detail, is done over to look like a cheesy, low-budget, 40s/50s sci-fi movie/TV show. The costumes in the live-action cutscenes, the flying saucer enemies, the robots that look like they were patched together from old car parts, the towers that look like they're made of cardboard and tinfoil, and the buttons & iconography on the menus all appear just like you'd expect them to. I've never played a game that did something similar, and while I wouldn't want it to become a trend, it really works here.

I was quite surprised when I heard about this game as I thought it would be interesting. After playing some missions, I started to well... dislike it. The cost of the upgrades, the very low income of money, the small range of different weapons platforms... couldn't possible made me to like it. Tower defence is hard to balance since it needs a good cost vs a good placing of the weapons + a nice upgrade system, this game has neither.

Defense Grid by comparison is way better balanced and way more interesting, while having better upgrade costs, better income and better weapon platforms.

Try it thou, you might like if you have too much free time to spare, which is not in my case.
My score, 4/10.

If I had to chose between playing this game and scooping out my eyes with a rusty spoon, I would chose the later.

I usually can't stand tower defense games but I LOVED Unstoppable Gorg. A literal twist on the genre with an awesome mid 20th century sci-fi TV theme and great graphics. If you love tower defense games - get it. If you hate tower defense games get it anyway because it's a steal and you'll be supporting Futuremark - makers of programs like PCMark and 3Dmark not to mention Shattered Horizon!
