It isn’t very often that someone brings something new to the tower defense genre. The basic formula for the genre is extremely simple, and messing with it too much serves as more of a detriment than a benefit. That is exactly the approach that...

You may remember Futuremark from their first game Shattered Horizon, a multiplayer shooter. Their second is Unstoppable Gorg, a tower defense budget game for PC and Mac (and soon, iPad and Xbox LIVE) with a delightful 50's theme. While they are...

Unstoppable Gorg has been out for about a week, and if you've been playing or reading about it, you may be aware of its stylish vintage sci-fi aesthetic and its high level of difficulty, even on the default Moderate setting. Yes, Gorg is hard, but...

The idea of rotating orbits and fantastic aesthetics make Unstoppable Gorg feel striking and unique to start, but the rest of the game doesn’t live up to that great first impression. The levels don’t switch up the gameplay enough to make them worth...

Did you know that PopCap’s phenomenal tower defence title Plants Vs Zombies was originally going to be titled ‘Lawn of the Dead’? A swift no-no from the Romero estate curtailed that, but I have to wonder if the game would’ve been as popular as it is...

In the 1950s, alien-invasion paranoia reached a fever pitch. Films like the 1953 version of War of the Worlds and 1956's Earth vs. the Flying Saucers pitted humankind against seemingly unstoppable alien onslaughts. The new tower defense game...

The quality of this game really speaks to Futuremark’s ability to put out a good product. Anyone who has tried out their benchmarking software knows that they have the ability to put out one heck of a program. Unstoppable Gorg takes a popular...

von Stephan Petersen Tower-Defense gehört normalerweise nicht zu meinen bevorzugten Genres. Bei Unstoppable Gorg mache ich allerdings gerne eine Ausnahme. Das 50er-Jahre SF-Trash-Szenario ist einfach genial und wird in den lustigen...

Tower defence –pelit ovat jo niin nähty juttu. Itseasiassa ne olivat nähty juttu jo pari vuotta sitten, eikä aika ole ainakaan parantanut tilannetta. Alkujaan hauska idea on poljettu ylikyllästyksellä niin maan rakoon, että harvaa koko genre edes...

Unstoppable Gorg er et av de mest spennende tårnforsvarspillene jeg har spilt. Siden du hele tiden må flytte rundt på satellittene dine kan du aldri lene deg tilbake og se på at forsvarsverkene dine lager hakkemat av fienden, i stedet må du konstant...

Eigentlich sind Benchmarks das Metier von Entwickler Futuremark. Mit "Unstoppable Gorg" veröffentlichen die Finnen nun aber ihr zweites Spiel. Dabei handelt es sich um einen Vertreter des momentan überstrapazierten Tower-Defense-Genres, in dem durch...

Schlecht ist Unstoppable Gorg nicht, nur etwas schwach auf der Brust. Das Potential des Spiels wird nicht ausgenutzt, weil auf kleine Nettigkeiten wie Highscore-Listen oder auch etwas mehr Vielfalt in den Modi keinen Wert gelegt wurde. Insgesamt...
