A project over eleven years in the making, Cortex Command has rich 2D pixel graphics coupled with an extremely detailed physics engine, which allows for highly replayable and emergent real-time action. There is also a turn-based strategic campaign mode which ties the tactical fights together, featuring persistent terrains that will accumulate the battle scars, debris, and bunker ruins through your entire campaign.

Choose from several unique technology factions, each featuring their own sets of expendable soldier bodies, mechas, weapons, tools, and landing craft. Protect your brain, mine the gold, and destroy the enemy cortex in his bunker complex!

Key Features:

  • Fully destructible environments - The gold you need to excavate is sprinkled throughout the terrain of each scene. Use special digging tools to blast your way into the dirt and debris. All the pieces of bodies and ships from your struggles will fall to the ground and permanently add to the battlefield. Get more powerful (and expensive) diggers and you can even tunnel into your enemies' bunkers from below!

  • Strategic metagame campaign – The intense, real-time tactical battles are put in a greater strategic context in the Campaign mode, thus giving each battle meaning and consequence. The gold-rich terrains on the planet and the defensive bunkers you build to defend them are persistent from fight to fight. This means there will be layers of debris, bunker ruins, tunnels, and corpses piled up in layers, telling the history of each place throughout each campaign played.

  • In-game buying menu - At any time and place during the game, bring up a powerful menu to order new bodies and equipment, all delivered at the location and by the transport ship of your choosing. Rockets are cheaper but unreliable and harder to land. Drop ships are far more expensive but can quickly deploy entire groups of puppets onto difficult terrain. Ships and equipment returned to the TradeStar are refunded to your account.

  • Build your own bunker - At the start of most missions, you are able to take your time and build your own command bunker from scratch. Easily design twisting tunnels and place doors, traps, and turrets to thwart your enemies' intrusions! Pre-deploy and equip bodies in and around your installation to prepare yourself for your objectives. Don't spend too much though, or you won't have enough funds left when the mission starts!

  • Four-player cooperative and/or versus multiplayer - Gather your friends and plug in those game controllers! Play skirmish or campaign missions with or against up to three of your buddies. 2 vs 2, 1 vs. 3, 4 vs. the CPU - it's up to you! (rhyme intended). Flexible control settings allow you to use the keyboard, keyboard + mouse, or any generic game controller you can find and plug in.

  • Built-in editors and modding - Several in-game editors allow you to easily create your own stuff. The game's engine is built to make it very simple to modify and add your own content. Design your own missions, guys, ships, weapons, tools, bombs, and shields - and easily share them with your friends. Join and download some fantastic mods from the community at the Data Realms Fan Forums.

  • Cortex Command is still being improved - The campaign mode and missions are fully playable, if not in a completely polished state yet. If you buy the game today, you will also have access to any and all future versions (not including sequels!)

Don't be fooled by my hours, I played the Non-Steam version quite a while.

A lot of people seem to be confused by this game. They probably expected some epic story mode or intense multiplayer battles, and end up disappointed because CC doesn't have these features. But it has something different: An incredible sandbox experience.

Do you want to know how I play it? I load up a map of Skirmish Defense, enable unlimited gold and that my brain can be placed anywhere, then build an unbreachable subterranean bunker and start the game. Now the real fun begins. Wave after wave of enemies will try to tunnel a way to my brain, but this task is a bit complicated by the fact that I constantly drop crates filled with pineapple grenades and molotov cocktails on their heads and watch their bodies explode into gore.
Soon, the whole battlefield is covered in body parts and debris. The never ending waves of enemies have to crawl trough a horrible mess of blood and flesh from their fallen brethren, only to be ripped apart by the next crate bomb. If this gets boring, I set up a Sniper with a high powered Anti-Vehicle rifle on a hilltop. It is just too damn entertaining to shoot a drop ships' engines out and then finish the remaining crew with a single, multiple-body-penetrating shot.

The completely desctructible environment is just so awesome to mess with. When you fire bullets at the ground, you can see them traveling through the dirt and coming to a halt. The game even takes into account what weapon was used - bullets of rifles will bury much deeper than the ones of pistols.
This also introduces some interesting mechanics in terms of bunker design. Depending on the angle from where the shot was fired, a bullet will either bounce off a wall or penetrate it.
Exploding grenades produce shrapnel that rips apart even the toughest enemy. There is even a Chainsaw Gun. Guess what it does. Yes, it fires Chainsaws.

Only problem with it are the lazy developers. This game has been in development forever, and nothing significant has changed. The devlog is updated twice a year max, and its been ages since the last release. This makes the 20$ pricetag feel like a rip-off, since you're buying an unfinished product that probably will never be finished.

If you can pick it up at sale, though... go for it!

Let me tell you the saga of Derek the soldier

Dereck the soldier was tasked with the suicide mission of storming the mighty enemy brain bunker with 2 comrades, despite being outgunned and outnumbered

This does not stop Derek the soldier

Soon the artillery starts to fall, his weapon is then destroyed and his commander gunned down before even being able to tell for retreat

This does not stop Derek the soldier

Derek charges the enemy bunker, pistol blazing, his fellow comrades running for life. Sadly Derek is hit by the barrage of gunfire and loses both his legs and his arm

This does not stop Derek the soldier

Jet packing to the top of a tower, Derek throws a grenade down knocking out a sniper post, there Derek content with his successes, goes to Valhalla to fight a more worthy foe

Thus is the saga of Derek the Soldier

11/10 would sacrifice Derek for no reason again

So - Its a side on, 2D, sandboxy, RTSishy....shooter...? I think.

You build a bunker, bung your brain in it, then call in troops to defend against / attack an enemy who's generally doing the same thing.

All i know is one of my troops took a pot shot at an enemy dropship that crashed on top of him, its engine flew off hit another enemy dropship that promptly exploded sending its explosive contents flying accross the map which flattened many of it's own troops one of whom sent body parts flying back accross the map before cutting a number of my troops in half and flying towards yet another enemy dropship....you get the picture - pure awesomeness!

Even nice rigs seem to struggle when the map gets a bit full - but its still playable :)

Load skirmish defence - give youself infinite gold - then cackle inanely as the health & safety nightmare begins....and the body parts start to fly >=)

♥♥♥♥ing fun ♥♥♥ game that's underrated as hell and cheap ($20 or 3 hours of work, depends on where you live though obviously)
Imagine a game where you can kill someone by literally slamming yourself into them incredibly fast and watching as they split into a dozen or more pieces.

Yeah that's Cortex Command for you, not saying this in a bad way either, this is literally one of the only games I've ever played where I end up dying in some hilarious/unorthodox way every single time I play.

The game actually has a pretty active modding community, with tons of new factions/weapons/tools/scenarios etc being made available online and on the Steam Workshop.

The only real downside about this game is the movement, let me put it this way.

It's as if someone took QWOP it made it into a sidescrolling shooter. That's the best way to describe the movement.

But if you get used to how the movement in this game is then you'll definitely sit just fine with this game, ♥♥♥♥ing fun ♥♥♥ game man I swear.
