Description

Forts is a physics-based action-RTS, where players are challenged to construct custom bases and destroy their opponents in a battle for the last of Earth's natural resources. Construct an armored fort while collecting resources. Arm it to the teeth. Develop your technology to unlock advanced weapons, then target weak points in your opponent’s fort. Shoot down incoming missiles and patch up damage before your fort comes crashing down. Defend your reactor at all costs!
