    Both a throwback and an innovation. It takes a formula pioneered decades ago, puts a fantasy story and theme over it, and perfects the concept with clever and challenging level design.

    It's not running for the game of the year, but it's fun to play and will bring you back to the golden times of gaming.

    I had fun with Fortix 2, especially once I got past the midpoint of the game and the challenge ramped up. At its heart it's still a 1980s arcade game, and those games had a way of making relatively simple gameplay enjoyable. However, if those types of games aren't your thing you should probably pass on Fortix 2.

    There isn't a wealth of game here, but what is here is thoroughly enjoyable. Fortix 2 proves that, 30 years later, the Qix formula remains fun.

    For a game priced at the low price of $9.99 I can't say I was expecting much but I was proven wrong by the Nemesys developers and their addicting game. A simple idea of land grab coupled with the upbeat music had me on the edge of my seat during some close calls with a cannonball just missing me as I reached my goal and captured the land.

    Still, for $10 US on Steam, Fortix 2 is a good 'un, definitely worth adding to the collection.

    Fun little game and I got it on offer from steam for under £2 and so I give it an 8. If I spent more, maybe only a 7 ;) MainlyFun little game and I got it on offer from steam for under £2 and so I give it an 8. If I spent more, maybe only a 7 ;) Mainly posting to add some details about controls in response to another review. The mouse controls are fiddly, but keyboard is fine. You can hold down the CTRL key to stay on the border, which prevents accidentally capturing territory (introduced during later level, wasn't in tutorial for some reason). Levels get quite tricky later on with lots of new obstacle types added as you go along! Expand

Some spiced up gameplay elements adds more fun and challenge, from dragons, projectiles, powerups and bats. Later levels offer quite a surprising challenge, with powerful black dragons who constantly seek out the player, firing fast projectiles. These challenging levels demonstrate how the gameplay falls apart, where the player must constantly make tiny boxes to proceed, and this quickly becomes tedious. These small tweaks are not enough to make the fundamental arcade-like gameplay any more satisfying.
    The hand-painted levels and cartoonish graphics support the indie and casual feel of the game, and definitely were a driving force in keeping me playing. The static view of the levels and limited environments depletes this effect. Fortix 2 only took me 3.4h on Steam to complete the mission on Normal. While Fortix 2 is a fun casual game that plays well with a gamepad or keyboard, its only suggested to get in a bundle.

    when i saw a clip of this, i almost instantly bought it. luckily, i tried the demo first.
    it is really unfortunate how the great concept and style of the game is at least in my opinion destroyed by its controls. mouse is useless (should have really been clicking once on a target instead of dragging) and keyboard... well... one has to trace the exact shape of the border if one wants to move along it. you can't move inside what you've already conquered. how the developers came up with that stupid idea, i don't know. it makes keyboard controls unnecessarily clunky.
    thus: great concept and features but abysmal controls.
