The current indie and freemium era has produced hundreds of poor quality artillery and tower defense games. Forts is nothing like any of them. It is an in-depth battle game where you build and defend your fort. There is no single method for winning. Build your fort the way you like, fight the way you please, and win by whichever means suits your playing style. Forts is the perfect game for people who like building and people who enjoy adaptable tactical gameplay.
An in-depth and sophisticated artillery and fort game
The fact you are able to build a fort in a freeform manner means you have plenty of control over how the game is played and how you win. Development started in 2003, and some of the aesthetic game decorations will remind you of games from the early 00s. Building your own fort is similar to building a bridge from popular bridge building games. The battle side of the game is similar to RedCon Strike Commander and Faster Than Light. You control your weapons and the people operating them. The graphics are only 2D, but the particle effects are three-dimensional.
Just the right mix of other games to make it original
Forts has similarities to other battle and building games, but it takes its own direction to the point where it feels original and unique. You can play the campaign maps or play against people online. It is better playing with friends because some online users are able to cheat to win. The game has plenty of re-play value, so you will get a good value for your money.
