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.
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.
Glorious 3D graphics and effects for added impact.

Unstoppable Gorg is one of the last games made by Finnish software development company Futuremark, before the company sold its game development division to Angry Birds developers, Rovio Entertainment. Unstoppable Gorg offers a smart twist on the tower defense model: you defend the solar system from fearsome aliens by sending satellites into orbit. However, the twist is that in Unstoppable Gorg you can move your satellites (towers) by rotating the orbits that surround planets. In other words, your towers are not stationary. This adds an additional layer of strategy.
It is also worth mentioning that the game's story and aesthetics are inspired by classic sci-fi films of the 1950s. And while neither the story nor the graphics impress (at least compared to other tower defense games, such as the Anomaly series), they do their job and support the gameplay well enough. Speaking of gameplay, if you are a fan of tower defense games you will definitely like it. You may like it even if you are not a fan of the genre. All in all, it is a pretty good tower defense game, but once the innovation wears off, you won't return to it, unless you really really like the genre.
Tower Defense with a twistAkiMatti | Oct. 9, 2013 | See all AkiMatti's reviews »
If you are in any way familiar with tower defense games, you'd know that the basic principle in them is to prevent invading forces from reaching their target by building new and more powerful defense towers. Usually, these towers will stay in place. Here comes the twist of Unstoppable Gorg (UG): the towers are movable, albeit in a circle.
See, in UG you place the "towers" in orbits around the target the attacker is trying to reach. Once the towers are placed in orbits, they can be moved by dragging the whole orbit around. So you don't only think the placement of those towers once but you can and must change their places many times during the levels.
This new mechanic is pretty fast to adopt but it also brings a whole new level of gaming to the tower defense games. If anything, it removes a lot of the waiting that is usually a trope of this genre, since you'll most of the time have lots to do because the enemy will also change their path so you need to react to that.
In addition to that new mechanic, UG is made tongue in cheek by making top notch '50s references throughout the game. It brought at least a smile to my face, but to each their own.
Very enjoyable addition to the genre, all in all.
A decent, somewhat unoriginal game.BubbaSquare | Oct. 1, 2013 | See all BubbaSquare's reviews »
It's quite clear that Indie dev's don't have enough money to start going on large-scale, amazing games, so it is quite understandable that they would go to the lengths of choosing perhaps easier games of particular genres that would take a lighter toll on their wallets. Tower defense games are one of these cheaper routes. With the overflow of TD games on iOS and Android (due to the damn huge successes of Plants vs. Zombies and Kingdom Rush), Unstoppable Gorge is, in my eyes, just another tower defense game. Sure, the circular-defending gameplay is interesting, but I found myself having a boring time with this game. The game design is somewhat tacky, and the controls are extremely uncomfortable. Go for it if you're actually a fan of TD games that are overflowing the indie scene, it might be different enough for you.

Unstoppable Gorg is a good game. It kept the old fashioned tower defense action and excitement while delivering a fresh breath of air to the genre. The music was pretty, even though it got repetitive after a while. The only problem is that, depending on how you play, some of the towers were kind of superfluous.

Tower defense meets sci-fi films of the 50s. Yep this feature could resume the game. It doesn't make it bad though. Unstoppable Gorge is a fun Tower Defense game, where we are put to fighting endless waves of UFO with a big array of weapons. There are lots of unlock stuff to get, challenges to go through and a funny story to watch.
If you like Tower Defense games, I think you wouldn't go wrong trying this title.
