Fort Courage Review – a Tegra Game With a Halloween Vibe to It (Video)
Human Head Studios’ game Fort Courage recently reached the Play Store and Tegra Zone and we took the opportunity to put the game to the test. The title also received no less than two updates over the past days. We tested it on the Sony Xperia Tablet S slate, as shown in the video below.
This is a turn based title, that has the user controlling two kids, as they venture into land of horrors, where they build a fort using wooden boxes. All of a sudden they’re attacked by the classic critters in horror storieS: mummies, spiders, Frankensteins and more. The gameplay is turn based and requires quite a bunch of purchases to actually making it through the game. The two kids will have to shoot monsters or throw grenades at them, each of the characters owning a special weapon of its own.
Grenades come in a limited stock and the way to replenish your funds is to collect coins after the enemies die and leave them behind. With the coins you can buy weapon upgrades, new weapons, more grenades or cool character skins. There are 10 upgradable powerups in the game and 13 upgradable toy weapons, as well as 13 unique enemies and even some bosses. There are 120 stages to take on if you have enough patience. We didn’t and we found the game to be quite slow and tedious, frustrating when you don’t have the right weapons. Still, it’s quite fun and seeing that Halloween is approaching it’s also themed right.
We give Fort Courage a 7.5 out of 10 and you can get it from here for free.
