I tried the lite of this a while back. It's not actually a shmup. It's a dual-stick shooter.
The backgrounds or more or less static (they don't pan), but the perspective does tilt very slightly for an interesting 3D effect.

Overall, I just wasn't really impressed. There are far better games in this genre available.

I actually liked the game. The area of movement was limited but you had a good selection of enemies and weapons. I hope they come out with a retina update. Game would look awesome then.

Icon is a window to game's soul...

We are thinking about creating new shooter for iOS/MacOS. We would like to know what features we should copy from the Fortis game. Which features of the Fortis do you like? Could someone answer to the question? Each answer is important for us and helps design better game.

It's been a while since I've played this, but basically everything about it was pretty good -- except for the limited gameplay area.

I think this is based off of "Asteroid".

It's also why it says,
"Classical shooter in new 3D arrangement" and
"2 THUMB-STICKS to control the ship".

Anyway, I'm going to use what's left of my iTunes credit to get this. Looks like a fun game.

I'm interested in your opinion about this game.

If anyone has played in Fortis I will be happy to read opinion (on AppStore/MacAppStore too).
