Fort Stars is Debut Indie title from SimCity/EA Maxis Veterans

Magic Fuel Games is a start-up from veteran EA Maxis and SimCity developers, and their first title is Fort Stars. Fort Stars is a next-generation mobile game that lets players customize and create their own fortresses, each with a Throne Room that must be defended at all costs. How players guard the Throne Room is up to them and is achieved with an innovative level editor that offers the depth of PC sim-builders with the simplicity of mobile touchscreens. While building an impregnable fortress is important, the other important part is building a legendary team of raiders to defeat other players fortresses.

From a starting roster of 17 Fort Stars, players can create their very own all-star squad and invade armed fortresses using mind-blowing magic spells, ridiculously satisfying skill-shots, and screen-shaking brawls. Each has their strengths and weaknesses, from the fearsome Barbarian to the Electrifying Runemaster. All 17 can be upgraded, and more heroes will be added in regular updates to the game.

“We’re overwhelmed with pride and excitement to finally release Fort Stars after three years of incredible hard work,” said Kevin Shrapnell, Chief Executive at Magic Fuel Games. “With Fort Stars, we saw an opportunity to bring all our years of PC and console games experience to the power and convenience of mobile.”

Harvey Elliott, the Chief Executive at publisher PlayStack, added: “The pedigree of talent at Magic Fuel Games is a huge draw for us, and seeing the team’s incredibly creative ideas evolve in this debut title has been inspirational. We’re delighted with the result and see big things for Fort Stars.”
