Intro: Korix places you deep in space, fighting for your race’s survival after your home world is destroyed. With nothing left to lose, you are put in the role of commander, with the sole mission of taking the fight back to the enemy. Build up your defences, capture the resources and build your own army to exact revenge. You will not go down without a fight!
Review: Korix is a mix of different gaming styles. But if I had to nail it down I would say it is a RTS and Tower Defence game mashed together. Consisting of three game modes: Campaign, Skirmish and of course multiplayer which is where you will probably spend most your time. You start off with an empty board and have to build your defence and attack up from scratch. Then once you are strong enough you can end the game by taking down your enemy base. To get to that point (that is a long way from the start of the level) you need to build up energy levels because the more energy you have, the most things you can build.
Using just a single Move controller the in-game command system is well thought out and while you only use one controller everything it right there at the click of a button. With several towers to build and even the use of a Nuke attack, this game might look basic, but the gameplay is deep and really helps you to get into the zone.
Verdict: This is one of those games that will eat your gaming time like it was a bowl of noodles. Not so much because there is so much to do, but because each game takes so long to play. Each game, especially when played with friends can take a long time to finish (obviously depending on each players skill set). Sure this game has a basic low pixel style, but yet in VR this helps to give the playing board some great 3D depth and really makes it looks like a real life playing board laid out in front of you. While I would like to see this game a lot cheaper than it currently is, I think it’s still worth a download if you like your strategy games.
