ABOUT UNSTOPPABLE GORG

Unstoppable Gorg is a thrilling space defense game inspired by vintage sci-fi films from the 1950s. The game builds on the core tower defense mechanics that fans love while breaking the genre's conventions with a unique orbital layout and the unmatched ability to move towers by rotating orbits.

- PROTECT our solar system from the Gorg in a thrilling space defense game

- SATELLITES in orbit replace the towers and grid layout used in other TD games

- MOVE satellites around their orbits to create the best defense for each wave

- GLORIOUS 3D graphics for added impact, not a sprite in sight

- AUTHENTIC homage to the sci-fi films of the 1950s
