JOIN THE GLORKIAN WARRIORS! Visit awesome asteroids! Blast strange invaders!

“It’s a ridiculously charming game that makes me smile every time I play it.” - Cult of Mac

“It really is quite the delight.” - 148Apps

“The vibrant cartoony visuals are beautifully conspicuous and the fantastic soundtrack compliments the game to a T.” - Toucharcade

Glorkian Warrior: The Trials of Glork is a collaboration between Eisner Award winning cartoonist James Kochalka and indie game studio Pixeljam, makers of the prehistorically epic DINO RUN!

It's a goofy mashup of Galaga-style shoot-em-up, simple platforming action, and Saturday morning cartoon.

Help Glorkian Warrior and his trusty Super Backpack fight against an endless onslaught of alien creatures, and be prepared for anything... the Magic Robot appears when you least expect it, and might shower you with exploding basketballs... or kittens!

Collect energy crackers and power up an awesome arsenal of double lasers, triple lasers and tennis balls while the invaders hypnotize you with their mesmerizing attack patterns. Perhaps you may even uncover the legendary Flarf Gun and save the world.

You will have so much fun trying and dying, again and again.... but no matter how miserable your performance, each play session will add to your progress and unlock new features to keep your fingers and fun zone fully engaged!


◊ Art & story by James Kochalka, First Cartoonist Laureate for the state of Vermont!
◊ Game design, coding, and music by Pixeljam games, the same team that brought you DINO RUN
◊ Procedurally generated invader flight patterns and formations, with many different landscapes to explore
◊ No IAP, just good old fashioned entertainment like your great grandpa used to enjoy
◊ Frenetic, "one more try" style gameplay
◊ Endearing characters and all-ages humor
◊ Based on Kochalka's new graphic novel “The Glorkian Warrior Delivers a Pizza"

Can you reach the rank of Glorkian General or will you forever stay a Soft-Boned Space Cadet?

Oodles of fun!

I've been playing this game for a long time. I'll never delete it. It's nostalgic. It's witty. It's unbeatable! I have neglected many, many hours or work with beautiful ease. I never leave reviews, and I almost never keep anything I download for longer than I have kept The Trials of Glork... Or whatever this is called.


Great, fun little game.

Really enjoying this Pixeljam gem. No loading screens, no ads, no microtransactions, just an immensely solid and fun game. With responsive and precise controls, which isn't something you can say about most iPhone games. Can't recommend it enough, definitely worth your time and money.
