Simple gameplay.
You play a greedy knight that runs around in 12 kingdoms on lines that you "own" on the board and he takes land by squaring it off.
Dragons and the current land owners will try to kill you when they find you on their land.
When you venture out some dragons will come at you and/or shoot fire at you.
There is also the towers that will fire on you, and a bat that has your scent, traveling on your lines hunting you down.
If any of these touch you or your line when your taking land your dead and the bat will just kill you outright on your own land but can not follow you out.
Water, cliffs, and sand will slow you down, then there are also impassable walls (dragons can fly over these).
If you can take the area with the crossed axes you'll launch a catapult and take out one of the towers.
You win by destroying all enemies or taking enough land to satisfy the gods.

"Crush your enemies. See them driven before you. Hear the lamentations of their women."

Even though Fortix is a pretty old game, it's a lot of fun.

It reminds me of the days of QIX but with a Fantasy spin and more interesting enemies and with an actual mini story. The game takes QIX mechanics and pits you against dragons and to win each level you have to capture the forts on the map. You can win by default by claiming enough of the map regardless.

The music isn't bad and doesn't get old too quickly, at least if you're not totally bad at it. Simple graphics are all this game needs and it does it well.

In terms of the Achievements, most of them are pretty standard things to get and won't make you work too hard. You'll get a lot of them just from playing and beating the game. Only three Achievements require any sort of skill. One of them is downright hard, but as I started playing yesterday and finally managed to get it, not too bad.

It's a good game to pick up and put down, however it may drag you in for an extended stay when you get so frustrated that the level is so easy and you made a silly mistake.

There are two control options for this game, mouse (casual) or keyboard (hard, but better for mastery.)
Options are pretty limited but there's not much to need.

One minor annoying thing I found, was no way to kill my profile and start over if I'd lost too many lives. You're stuck with whatever you've done unless you change difficulties.

However, for what it is, it's a great fun time. Technically it could have a lot of replayabliity, if you really enjoy this style of game.

I'd get it on sale or in a bundle. But regardless, it's good fun.

8/10

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/

I guess this was the one of the first games that I purchased from Steam, and it is a casual puzzle game which is similar to fill 'em up games of the 80's. Guess people doesn’t really change, I loved those games then and I still love them. There is even a Fortix 2 and both games offer Demo versions on Steam to try for free. What’s not to love?

Dragon Crossing

Highly Recommended

Fortix is a fun little puzzle game where you run in lines to captures parts of the level and take out enemies. The levels scale in difficulty at a good pace steadily adding in more difficult dragons that chase after you and breath fire, as well as forcing you to complete more than one map per level. Fortix was a very enjoyable expirence and for its low price it's a puzzle game I would recommend to everyone.

Remember art class from Bully? Well, it's kind of like that.
It's a fun little indie game, where your goal is to encircle and thereby capturing the for structures across 12 levels. During each level you have to face a handful of threats, and can collect powerups to help you succeed more easily.
There's a couple little things that I found strange in the game, such as how blood bats were referred to as 'dragons', but I found game to be a rather enjoyable for killing some time, especially for the price it's being sold at.

Also, this game has dragons. 👍

First the idea was pretty boring but after playing a while it got really addicting. For this price I'm highly suggesting to try this. There's no much content unless you want to play it with other difficulties and unlock all the achievements. I definitely have to buy the Fortix 2 now.

Fun little game, definitely worth picking up! Nothing groundbreaking, but an enjoyable monster and tower hunt nonetheless.
