This is quite the little gem here. It being one of the cheapest games on steam with trading cards I bought it thinking I would just get the cards and uninstall it into the deep unkown realms of my game library.

However out of boredem (and a lack of internet connection or power) I gave it a shot and I must say this truly a fun game. At first I was like DA FUQ ARE THESE CONTROLS, AINT NO ONE GOT TIME FO DAT. But then I switched the controls to keyboard and it was much better and I reccomend anyone who plays this to use the keyboard instead of mouse.

As soon as I got the hang of it I was hooked. Yes the graphics are 2D and not anything worth mentioning but it played very smooth and the controls were very responsive.

The goal of the game is like a reverse tower defense; you hae to destroy turrents and capture land by creating squares of land until you reach the turrets. Along the way (higher levels) things such as dragons and bats are introduced which invoke a feeling of "♥♥♥♥ I thought I was good at a game for once" or "Damn ♥♥♥♥♥ I JUST ATE". But let me tell you that as annoying as these ♥♥♥♥ers are (particulary bats), they add alot more dynamic gameplay to the game.

1st hour of playing I liked it.
2nd hour of playing I loved it
3rd hour my ♥♥♥♥ was out and hard
4th hour Cops called, I left my shades up while masturbating vigoriously.
5th hour I got ♥♥♥♥♥ by some black dude named Truck

This game is sooo enjoyable! its also srsly a good choice if you dont want to use your mouse! I play it on my toaster lap top, it works smoothly and its alot of fun. For those older gamers if you remember the game called "JezzBall", well this is the improved version of that one :) Its 1$ at the moment and its more than worth it!

The painting of this game as "reverse tower defense" demonstrates an utter lack of understanding firstly of what tower defense means, and secondly, of the long and storied history of Qix and it's many many clones.

Make no mistake, this game has nothing to do with the tower defense genre, and everything to do with being a shameless re-imagining of the classic 8-bit game Qix. That sounds like it would be a bad thing, but the truth is that Qix was a rad game when it released in 1981, and Fortix 2 truly feels like what would happen if the developers of Qix had time-traveled 30 years into the future at the start of development.

Qix featured a simple mechanic, slickly implemented, with a presentation that was unremarkable but serviceable for its day. The exact same thing is true for Fortix 2. This is not a complicated game, but it is a great implementation of a simple mechanic. The difficulty curve is pitch-perfect, making finishing a level without losing any lives achievable but challenging.

Fortix 2 isn't going to blow anyone away, but it does an excellent job of filling that spot in your Steam library for a game that doesn't ask for much in the way of investment, and can be consumed in 5-minute increments while still feeling rewarding, and for $2 or less, you can't really ask for more.

"Fortix 2 is best described as a reverse turret defense game", claims the store page. Well, no -- it's more accurate to say that Fortix is a Qix clone.
That's not a bad thing, though. I had been looking for a quick Qix fix for a while, and didn't find much save for an extravagantly priced "update" on XBLA (£11 with DLC, and it's ugly and short to add insult to injury).

In Qix/Fortix, you move on the periphery of the game arena. Leaving that periphery leaves you vulnerable, but that's how you conquer terrain: once you have traced a line dividing the non-conquered map in 2, the smaller half becomes yours. Basic risk/reward system: the payoff for tracing a long line is potentially high, but getting greedy is how you'll die most of the time.
Fortix 2 brings some variation to that classic formula and wraps the whole thing in cute graphics. I recommend it to fans of the classic Taito game or anyone looking for a chill arcade game.

This is a fantastic game. It's very fun and easy to learn but with a degree of difficulty that ramps up nicely. The graphics are much nicer than expected and really draw you into the game. I've spent a few hours in the game already and I'm still only on easy mode and there's just so much more of the game left to play.

I always loved Qix and the many simular ones, so I was bound love it. I wouldn't call it a reverse tower defense tho. But let's leave it at that. Now about the game itself. The grafix are great and rather adorable. A 30 level addictive challenge. I find this game highly enjoyable and for this price; it is a must get!! If you played the first one than you can consider Fortix 2 the improved version. The gameplay stays the same but the grafix are better and more challenging levels..

Older gamers will recognize Taito's Qix... and this is a good thing. Add all that story icing, mild inverted tower defense and colorful graphics and you got a nice game for only 1.99$... sweet deal if you consider there are trading cards and achievements as well...

For only 1,99 Euro this game is fun.
It can be played by anybody.
It's simple gameplay like it's older predecessors, but with better graphics and few more options.
It even has achievements and trading cards.

Fortix 2 is a direct sequel to Fortix. The gameplay is essentially the same. Graphics are improved and the maps are more challenging. One nice addition is you now have to collect keys to open the next part of the map. This makes each map longer and more difficult. The game has a high amount of replayability as you will want to get a "perfect" rating for each map. Addictive and a lot of fun, for $1.99 you will easily get a bunch of hours sunk into this little gem.

I've definitely played this before as a child, but I can't remember what it was called then. The game is a fun enough arcade game nothing really that adds to orginal formula other than pleasing graphics. it might have been nice to see a few different level types.

A game i got from a bundle long ago didnt expect anything but unlike many other small games this one actual seem to work.

Sure enough it actualy supported window mode, sounds option worked all fine to, off to a great start.

While waiting on the card drops i actual had fun playing this. for someone that looks for a game to maybe kill 15 - 45min once a while this could def be a decent game to play.

THIS GAME SCORES [1 2 3 *4*]

Fortix 2 is a good implementation of the game concept of Qix or Stix (The latter has animated GIFs.) where you have to conquer parts of a 2D level (e.g. image) by surrounding them (Whatever shape/size you decide.) with a line. You draw the line with a little "cursor" (The player avatar.) that ventures into the hostile area and then returns to the baseline or to the border of already conquered parts of the level.

This is a casual game, and it will take you only a few hours to beat it. Replay value is medium, means you can well return to this after a few months and enjoy it again without a story that you already know getting in the way.

Great game, especially when compared to the first one.
The mechanics are changed up, you instead have to capture "Dark Badges" and destroy all the towers in any given level to beat it.
There's all the monsters you originally encountered from the first game, plus the red dragon - which is a step up from the green dragon - and the blood bat cave.
The art style is much different, and looks a lot better.
In the game, there's three different regions on the island you're trying to claim, a foresty region, a snowy region, and a volcnao region, each one has their own unique towers walls, projectiles, and overall look. In addition, there's two different tracks for each of these regions, which helps a lot in making sure you don't hear the same song over and over again while you're making your way through the 30 levels.

Overall, if you liked the first game, or prefer a nice, casual game in a fantasy setting, I definitely recommend purchasing this game, especially given the price.
