If like me you enjoy this type of game DO NOT bother with this, The only way they have given it any degree of difficulty is by borking the control set up, I've tried to enjoy myself with it but have been continuosly handicapped by controls that are unresponsive and often moving in the opposite direction to the command given, Life after life was lost because these Dev's seem to be incapable of giving it accurate mouse control. A complete waste of your time and money.

Do you remember the old arcade game Qix? Of course you do - you grew up in the early 1980's arcades like i did. Fortix is a lot like Qix, but about three or four levels of evolution beyond that. Your avatar's goal is to claim areas by moving (drawing lines) around them, while avoiding monsters and artillery which attack him. So long as he's on a claimed area, he's invulnerable, but claiming new areas requires sallying forth into danger. Played through the whole thing in only 2 sittings, but it's still got 3 more difficulty levels to get through. Playable with a single hand, though i highly recommend the keyboard for movement (arrow keys), rather than the mouse.

PS: was Linux support removed? Though i have it on Linux, the Store Page is no longer showing the system requirements for Linux. There's no indication of such in the product history.

The basic formula from the original Fortix carries on into Fortix 2. You draw lines to capture area on the play space in order to take down towers, capture dragons and secure objectives.

Fortix 2 doesn't add enough variety of gameplay or deviate far enough from the original game to distinguish itself. Which causes it to feel like a map pack instead of a evolved sequel.

A painfully hard Xonix variant. If only we could make an "inward edge" to exclude bat caves when capturing!

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.
8/10.

A fresh take on the classic Jezzball formula. Extremely entertaining and fun. The first game has a kind of bland color set but it still quite fun. This sequel is nice and bright, has a fairly decent "plot", very good levels, and nice graphics. Highly recommended!
