Genre: Strategy, Tower Defense

Take command of an 18th century European fortress and using stone walls, stout soldiers, powerful cannon and cunning traps to hold your blockhouse against waves and waves of attackers.Vauban is a fortress defence game inspired by classic tower defence games and castle defence games like Rampart. Taking command of a european fortress in the age of black powder warfare as one of three factions (Britian, Prussia or France), the player must earn funds by weathering successive onslaughts of attackers and use this money to repair and expand his fortress. Strategic placement of walls and bastions are key, as is the timing and use of traps like the Trou-de-Loup or the exploding siege mine.Master of Fortresses has two main gameplay modes. In Skirmish mode, the player can choose to construct and defend a fortress for a pre-determined number of waves on one of ten maps divided between three difficulty levels. Success in Skirmish Mode earns a player Campaign Honours, which are saved to his profile. Earning a Campaign Honour (all 54 of them!) bestows bonuses onto the player, which could mean the difference between victory and defeat. In Endless Mode, the player can test his skills against an endless and ever-increasing army of attackers until he is inevitably overwhelmed by sheer numbers.

quite easy game playing the English, it needs stronger enemies for the last waves, otherwise you can stop building on wave 20

like the idea, don't mind the graphics, but it needs some balance and maybe a better pathfinding for enemies, they never attack the back of the fortress, which I always leave unprotected

Prussians against English : two English militia shoot from a distance, they don't do any damage and are out of range for my militia - game goes on forever

the game cannot deal with too many units, it stops updating the graphics, enemies move but guns don't shoot, then every single unit shoots at the same time

i really liked this game. The graphics are, ok, but i dont really care about that. i find this type of defense game better than the traditional Tower Defense type of games.... just my opinion...

I was having fun with this game, but then... I tried getting the "Anxious" achievement by completing the first level as fast as I could. Timed myself at 5min 30s... twice, just to be sure. But alas! The game did not give me my achievement... only anxiety... Wait! Maybe I did get my reward after all?!

very good game with a historical view. cash is just about enough to keep the enemy at bay if you use it right. not found any bugs so far.

4/5 may be adjusted later if I do find bugs

Game has a few bugs. My game locked up halfway into the second map for an unknown reason. Fun game, nothing special though.

3/5 stars
