Inspired by science fiction films from the 1950s, Unstoppable Gorg challenges players to fend off alien invaders using an array of attack sattelites. In a clever twist, players must position their units by rotating the orbits of nearby planets, moons, and space stations -- a refreshing change from the genre's standard grid-based mechanics.
Between levels, players are treated to cutscenes that offer a suitably goofy mixture of live action, miniature models, and archive footage -- a teaser trailer released last year gives a good idea of the production values involved here. Good stuff!
The iPad edition of Unstoppable Gorg is available for $4.99. The PC version is priced at $8.99 until January 26th, after which it will cost $9.99. Futuremark notes that an Xbox Live Arcade port is set to launch later this year.
