About Hordes of Orcs:
Hordes of Orcs is a "Tower Defense" game in which you must build walls and lethal towers to defend your village from the Orcs emerging from, what the village elders call, "The Glowing Portal of Really Bad Things That We Should Have Bricked-Up a Long Time Ago." Sadly, the Portal is un-bricked and the Orcs are very, very hungry. If 20 Orcs make it to your village, you're toast. Featuring full 3D graphics and intriguing gameplay, you'll be hooked for hours!
Hordes of Orcs is available for $24.95 USD from the Freeverse online store. More information about the game, including a full demo, screenshots, and the strangest game trailer ever, are available from Freeverse's website.
