Simple, yet challenging. Addictive in an old school tetris kind of way. Definitely worth a couple bucks. Just don't click the High Scores page as it insta-crashes to desktop.

Fortix 2 Review - Raymond K. Turcotte

When i first saw Fortix 2, i was dissapointed for many reasons. The Graphics were different, it's too colorful and it looks like a childs game. Now that i have returned to it, and avoided my previous opinion of the Game. It's somewhat enjoyable. It's not half bad actually. I like the fact that you can actually "Run" in this game rather then the first one. They also added keys, sheilds and New power ups. I understand that a "New" company took it over, 'I get it', i'm just a little sad about that. I love the first one, but not so much the second one. I myself wouldn't recommend this game. But i'm gonna say if you bought Fortix 1 first you will have the same opion as me. But hey' it's decent

I recommend this, if you haven't played the first one. If you have, you won't want to play this.

Lovely little indie game with gameplay i have not experienced since Stix on Commodore 64.

Gameplay in short: Run around and 'conquer' area by 'painting' until you have taken over the objectives in each mission. Watch out for bad guys and um... 'Greed is good' in this game as the more you try to grab the better if you can avoid the bad guys well enough.

Only bad side is the obvious limitation to the game concept: eventually you have seen all enemy types and a been there - done that feeling kicks in. At that point all you can do it crank the skill level up and play some moar. Not that it matters that much because by the time you reach this you have already seen the best parts of the game and you can say it was a good buy.

Though a simple concept, it can be quite challenging. A good fun game if you are looking for something to play inbetween your more hardcore games.

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.

On the one hand, it includes (all?) the levels from the original Fortix, along with new ones, so that should make it better merely by being a superset of it. On the other hand, the temporary spikes of input lag feel a little worse than I remember them being in the original Fortix, and I kind of preferred the "Ye Olde Fantasy" art style of the original Fortix to the generic cartooniness of this version. Still though, the gameplay is as engaging as ever, and the addition of keys and locks introduces a number of new strategies. Definitely worth a play.

This is a wee gem of a game. Qix with dragons & catapults. Easy to learn, great difficulty curve, and a steady stream of new toys/mechanics. A bargain at $2.

I definetly recomment to try this game. Its very cheap and quite entertaning. If you like thinking on your feet. The games is for you. But dont get into getting perfect scores, because you will be in trouble if you know what I mean :)

This my video review of the game. I hope it will help to decide.

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.

If it was only for the idea of the game and the gameplay itself I would totally recommend this game to you as it's a fun and simple Q-Bix Clone with updated graphics featuring some new twists regarding enemies and stuff.

BUT ...

Sad to say but the game is buggy as hell.

The first Bug you will encounter is an error in the "Travelled Miles" display on your in-game profile. Nothing serious but it sucks as it could be fixed in no time i guess.

The second thing is that it simply looses your save game data during play. You know when it's doing so again as soon as the music in the game stops to play.

The demoversion didn't have these bugs so I recommend you to leave the full game out and stay by the demoversion. There is not much else to discover here that isn't in the demo anyway ...

This game is so simple and fun! It is my go to game when I have a few minutes of down time. The basic premise is to make the boxes with the line behind you without getting hit. The hardest difficulty is intense. If it's on sale, get it! It has an updated version of the first game in it as well. It's practically two for the price of one!

Highly recommended. A knights and dragons twist on the old Qix game mechanic, with tower defense thrown in for good measure and plenty of other interesting variables. Tactical complexity for a very simple concept. Much replay value.
