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.

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/

Гра доволі непогано зроблена як для свого рівня.
Тут є карта з більше як 10ма рівнями, ну і звісно на останньому рівні вас чекає бос гри.
4 рівні складності не дадуть гравцю занудьгувати при повторному проходженні гри, і надають той челендж якого ви очікуєте від поскладнення ігрового процесу + є ачівки котрі цікаво відкривати.
В мене є кілька зауважень щодо ігрового процесу(побажань щоб їх виправили\додали):
Неможливість заблокувати рух лише по лінії, коли не хочеш захоплювати місцевість;
Коли захоплюєш кажана, пише що ти захопив дракона о_О - це варто виправити хоча б на *захопив монстра* ;
Неможливість бігати по лінії коли не захоплюєш місцевість.
Скажу як є - гру пройшов 4 рази на 4х різних рівнях складності - мені не було нудно ані краплі від повторного проходження гри. Дуже сподобалися ачівка що стосується фінального босу. В принципі я раджу купити цю гру, але не в українському стім магазині - краще у бандлі чи попросити придбати подарунок в когось із друзів у стімі, якщо вони мешкають напр. у США. Чому я так кажу? Саме для України ціна на цю гру 2.99$, в той час як в інших країнах ціна на неї складає 0.99$. Я не кажу що гра не вартує тих 3 бакси, але якщо є нагода взяти гру дешевше, то чому б нею не скористатися.
8/10

English Review
This game is quite well made as to its level.
It has a map with 10+ lvls, and on the final level of the game you will encounter a boss.
4 difficulty levels will give you the edge of challenge you need for not getting bored when you try to complete the game second, third or fourth time + there are achievements here, some of which are interesting to unlock.
I have a few complaints about the game process(and I hope they will be fixed/integrated):
Inability to block movement on line, when you do not want to conquer land;
When you capture a bat, it says that you capture a dragon о_О - this should be changed, at least to "monster captured" ;
Inability to run on the line(edge), when you do not conquer land.
A few words from me - I've completed this game 4 times on 4 different difficulty levels - I wasn't bored at all when I was repeating my walkthroughs. I really enjoyed unlocking achievement related to final boss of the game.
8/10

Fortix is a small game, in which you need to attack castles. But their defences can be much stronger than you. I hate that Black Dragon! Anyway... The game is very cool. It's fun to get the achievements, they are not that hard.
For this genre, the game it's cool and can be played on the most of computers. 10/10 I Highly reccomend this game!

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.

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.

The biggest flaw of this game is the duration taken to beat it.
I have enjoyed playing it for an hour before I completed it, and whilst you can fight the same battles over and over again on harder difficulties this just isn't enough.
However, for the price, it's alright in my opinion.

Thumbs up

Originally bought number 2 on special and decided to try the original. Love them both. Yeah the prices are low but the gameplay quality isn't. Both Fortix one and two are enjoyable games

Truly a mediocre game,

I use to have this game on the black/white gameboy called something with Q, it would have a mexican guy play a nice song as outro, this is a slight upgrade with catapult and dragons, both great games though.

6.5/10

PRO:
+ Easy to learn how to play it
+ Achievments
+ Hardcore Levels
+ Leaderboard

CONTRA:
- The graphics are more functional than fancy
- Only 22 levels

CONCLUSION:
Gameplay is the pattern defined through the game rules. The rules of this game are very simple and makes you feel that the are heavier.
