“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!

Buggy -- Not Fair!

Guys, there's some serious controller issues with this game!

No matter which control option I select, there inevitably seems to be a moment when the game goes haywire, sending Glork running or jumping of his own accord, ignoring my futile screen taps while he throws himself into alien fire. At first I thought it might be a hardware problem. But I've upgraded my phone a couple of times by now and the problems have persisted.

This is not fair!

Now look, I'm interested in my high score, here. Like the arcade classics this game evokes, pride is on the line. Currently, I'm ranked #64 on the Ace Leaderboard. I always play Ace, the most difficult setting. I believe in a hearty challenge, hard-won victories and fair play.

These control bugs must be fixed or else the game's fairness and credibility will be in question.

This (or any) game's only true asset, integrity, is on the line, too. Why, I was at Comic-Con only a year or two ago when I heard rumors that hackers had some how gamed Glork and set themselves atop the leaderboards with absurd high scores. If true, I've thus far chosen to believe that these issues have by now been long rectified. However, Glork's spazzing out and sabotaging my play almost every single session betrays at least some weakness in the design of its current iteration. Now I'm not sure I know what to believe.

Glork is a great game. Please fix it. Fix it fast and fix it well. Fix it. Please.

And thank you.

Yours truly,
