As it stands, however, I found Fortix a mediocre experience that just didn’t grab me as much as I thought it might.

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

Fortix Review - Raymond k. Turcotte

Personally i only bought this game for the price. 1 dollar dosn't seem to much. My first opinion of this game wasn't good. Due to the graphics and controls. But then after a'while i got the hang of it. The Game turned out to be real fun! I'm actually happy i bought this game! It's a good puzzle game that worth at least 3 dollars!

I Recommend this game!

Some of you might not remember, but this game is very similar to a game a was playing back in the days (in the early 90s) on my 386 computer. The game name was Volfied and it was one of the best games i played back then.

A lot of nostalgia while playing Fortix.

It's a cool game, i'm happy they made it.

Edit:
I finished the game in 1hour...so wait for a very cheap price before buying it...

A Youtube review by MrEmeralddragonhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6gd4T4jrH7U

General
This little game is truly a glittering gem. It is outrageously fun! Indeed, I would say that it is worth more than a mere dollar.
There is also Fortix2 available on Steam, and although I should say that all of the level layouts in Fortix are also in Fortix2, I should also say that Fortix is a little bit more of a challenge than Fortix2.

Gameplay
Your objective is to capture the vast majority of territory of each level. This game is apparently based on an old game called "Qix" (before my time, so I can't tell you more than that). You capture territory by walking your knight off of his baseline and tracing out boxes, which once you go back to the baseline will then be claimed. Life is made a little more hazardous by towers that shoot at you, various creatures that want to eat you, and changes in ground type which slow you down.

Controls
One can use the mouse, but using the keyboard gives you much more precise control over your knight. I certainly found the keyboard more intuitive to use. You need fast fingers if you play in hard mode!

Storyline
There is one, but it isn't much of one. Very basic, there is a bad guy, you must complete all the levels and defeat the bad guy. I must say though, that really not every game needs a plot so I can't count it as a con.

Sound
Really fun medieval jolly music. I also enjoyed listening to the little noises the dragons make.

Graphics
I enjoyed the artwork a great deal. There are plenty of different looking textures to help you tell ground types apart. So, functional and nice to look at. The dragons are really cute!

Pros
+ different difficulty settings making it simplistic or a bit of a challenge
+ different ways to control your knight
+ pleasant atmosphere
+ simple objective, but hurdles between you and victory
+ awfully cheap

Cons
- movement can be a bit awkward and sometimes not as responsive as you might like
