Jan 20, 2012I like TDs, ive always liked TDs, so after watching the TB "review" of this game i thought this was a no-brainer, i just gotta have it. But, after spending about two hours in the game i get struck by buyers remorse. Its a very neat game in some aspects: The graphics and style of the game with the 40's inspired cutscenes and general laoyt are fun. The dynamic aspect of the game is a great idea and i bet alot of people will applaud the game for just that. But well, i dont like it that much to be honest. You see i hate juggling in TDs, i hate when the game forces me to always replace towers to make it optimal for just that wave, i much more prefer to build a solid defense and watch if kill everything. The dynamic mechanic here where you move around the towers all the time is sorta like juggling, and i just feel stressed and annoyed when i have to "kite" an enemy with my towers. And since i dont like that part, its kinda hard to like the game since its such an major part of the game. I guess i will play thru it, but im not having as much fun as i thought i would. A pricetag of 9â… Full Review »
Jan 21, 2012Back in the day I used to love TDs. As the genre got more saturated and more and more copies of the same recipe were released, I got bored. It's great to see that recently there have been new titles which introduce new aspects to the already boring "build and wait" mechanics.
In my books Unstoppable Gorg is a 9. The main story could be a bit longer and as a PC game it could be a little bit flashier. Overlapping enemies are also sometimes a bit annoying, as a bigger creep might hide something else under it. However for me the pro's outweigh the cons. I love the presentation and the oldies sci-fi. There's also a huge amount of replayability, ensuring that even if I get bored after a long session, there's still alot to come back to. The game keeps introducing new interesting stuff as the story goes and especially the last couple of weapons are extremely fun to use.
I love that the game isn't too casual and offers a real challenge although it's very easy to get into.
I wish there was a multiplayer mode, like a co-op or something though.… Full Review »
Feb 3, 2012Unstoppable Gorg is a great game, in my opinion. It kept the old fashioned tower defense action and excitement while delivering a fresh breath of air to the genre. The music was pretty catchy too, even though it got repetitive after a while, and the stereotypical horrible 50's sci-fi "special effects" made me chuckle along with the narrator. The only problem is that, depending on how you play, some of the towers were kind of superfluous. It was also a pretty challenging game without being crushingly difficult. I'm not gonna lie, I'm kind of addicted to it.… Full Review »
