Fortix
Rating : 7/10

Great casual game where you have to steal land by drawing lines from the edges. Makes you play 'just one more round'. Not that long, but fortunately there is ... Fortix 2 which is even prettier \o/

Worth the price. Although it is pretty short, i enjoyed my time playing it. Enough to buy the 2nd, which is cheap as well. Overall a good game. 7.5/10

Fortix is a strategic puzzle game in which you must capture the castles by making lines and rectangles. There are turrets and dragons ready to kill you all around and you have a set amount of lives per stages.

The game is really stressful, because if you die in a set of levels, you will start over at the first one. Also in the later difficulties, with how hard it is to make pixel perfect squares, you will die to random 1x1 pixel bumps you have made while capturing terrain. This game could have been pretty good, I like the idea. There's even more bad things about the game...

This is a "puzzle" kind of game, but the enemies and bonuses doesn't spawn at the same place if you retry or start over. That makes it so you can win many levels just by re-trying until you get a "Stop-time" bonus in a convenient spot and clear the level in 20 seconds.

The game can be completed in less than 30 minutes (even on Impossible difficulty), but at least it's cheap...

I do not think it is too bad, but I cannot recommend it, way too punishing, it's 1$ though... So if you want to try a new type of puzzle/strategy game, sure, try it. Personally, I found it too punishing and frustrating. I also felt like I had no real control over certain of my deaths.

Fortix is a fun casual game. Use your mouse or keyboard and draw a path to cover up the map. Within your box you can kill dragons/bats and take down towers. Or you can collect arms within your drawn box to activate catapults to take down the towers. This game is super simple, but can get extremely difficult if you play on the impossible difficulty level. Worth a play, especially since it can easily be found for a cheap price. Definitely worth the time spent and I recommend if you like these types of games.

This game might not seem like much, but the concept of conquering land to encircle your enemy's to defeat them is quite unique and fun.

Took me about an hour and a half to beat it on the first difficulty. Was fun for the price and time put into it. No reason to finish it on higher difficulty if you have Fortix 2. That one is bigger and better.

In a nutshell: It's TRON with dragons.

As in that you have to make lines to kill your opponents. It's fun, but I lost intrest in it because of the later difficulty and all-around frustration. The homing dragons and the catapult-activating items (which kill turrets) start to get put quite far apart and in very difficult to reach places. It's not unfair by any stretch, but later on it starts to feel a bit like a chore.

It's an interesting concept though, and you'll probably enjoy it enough to beat it.

Fortix is a cracking little casual indie game thats furiously fast and ferociously fun to play. The basic premise is something akin to 'Join the Dots' meets basic geometry. You take control of an intrepid knight that must be manoeuvred around and across various maps in order to capture the enemy castle. The action is displayed in birds-eye view.

The knight must be moved out from a safezone which starts on the outer border of the map. While in the safezone the knight is immune to any deadly enemy attacks. Rectangles must be drawn from one part of the safezone to another to cut down the enemys control of the land (map). This must be done with all manner of obstacles ready to kill the knight, while being up against the clock.

Of course the further into the map the safezone encroaches the less space the knight has to avoid deadly obstacles. These include: two types of cannon ball firing towers and, a multitude of dragons that swoop down or shoot fireballs in an attempt to kill your knight. These must be avoided by ensuring that your knight is in the safezone when hit and not in the midst of drawning a rectangle. If the knight is hit while drawning a polygon then a life is lost. If this isnt enough of a challenge note that the map must be conquered against the clock.

Fear not for the knight has a few actions they can perform to help you win. They can 'capture' triggers to destroy enemy towers, or trap dragons in a part of the safezone killing them instantly. Special tokens can also be 'captured' that provide a number of neat abilities such as: temporary invincibility, stopping cannonballs, killing dragons, receiveing an extra life or stopping time. To capture a trigger or token a polygon must be drawn around the item on the map.

There is one campaign which covers twelve maps. It can be replayed through four difficulty levels: Easy, Normal, Hard and Impossible. Difficulty affects time available, starting lives, the reaction speed amongst others.

With rudimentary controls the game is easy to pick-up. While graphics are basic they are well rendered and provide a more than fitting medieval ambience that goes perfectly with the incredibly catchy music played in the background. No bugs were encountered during twelve plus hours of play.

Overall I really enjoyed playing and beating this game. It has that 'just one more go' addictive quality, which kept me playing. Easily worth the money.

Small but likeable top-down strategy

This is a really small game, but it still takes a bit of time to get to like it. The basic idea is very simple: capture enemy territory by moving your one character along a "baseline", where you are safe from attacks, and cutting off pieces of the territory by leaving the safe baseline. While you're out in the open, you're prone to attacks from cannonballs and dragons, so it's crucial to get a good timing, and even apply some basic strategy here and there.

There isn't much more to it, really, so the game is quite easy to master, but the intricacies of some of the later levels ask for some quick reactions while moving into the open. There is something addictive in trying to finish every level and outwit the dragons; and there are some nice steam-achievement and even trading cards on offer. So if you can pick this one up at a low price: just spend the money, but don't expect a great game in return, just a quick but tasty snack.

Gameplay: 20/30
Graphics: 12/20 (basic really, but still with some atmosphere)
Sound: 5/10
Longeliveity: 10/20
Stability/techical: 15/20 (I had a couple of sudden minimalizes, but the game just continued in the background so no big deal).

Overall: 62/100

...my first cell-phone was Ericson, some old model. There was a game called "Erix", and that one was very good for me - I could have spend a lot of my time with it. And this game just makes me remember these good old days. Thanks, Fortix!
