About

Battle the enemy with your team of elemental warriors and try to break the delicate balance of energy in your advantage.

Ortus Arena is a symmetric turn based game for two players. With your re-incarnating elemental warriors, you must collect energy and conquer the board. Spending energy to move multiple units, but also keeping energy for defense. A delicate balancing act between attacking and defending. The way you manage each of your eight warriors is of crucial importance between victory or defeat.

Ortus Arena is the expanded digital implementation of the physical, two-player board game Ortus©. It allows players with a knack for tactical gaming to challenge their friends (both local or online) or climb the ranks against others of the same skill level.

Strategy prevails! No dice rolling, no card drawing, the victory in entirely up to your logical and strategic skills.
Luck has no place in Ortus, but your brain does!



A clever AI is present to be combated in the solo game mode. The average duration of one game is half an hour.two Difficulties:Apprentice Mode: Fight with 8 warriors, attacking with melee or ranged attack. This mode will help you learn the basis of the game. Once comfortable enough with this mode, you can try…

Master Mode: Unleash the true strategic power of the game. Your soldiers now have powers according to the element they represent.

Multiplayer mode: Local or Online, you can try to outsmart your friends!

Solo mode: You can learn the game’s basis with the campaign, or you can try to beat the AI if you’re on your own.

Learn the strenghs of your elemental soldiers on Master Mode:

Earth: Those soldiers can hide and thus can’t be targeted, unless there is another earth soldier in the same row. Their attacks are more powerful than the other characters and they cost more energy as well.

Water: They are the only ones that can attack several enemies at once, all around them or on a line. If you don’t block the first impact, then you’ll have to pay a degressive cost of energy for all the soldiers the attack targeted.

Fire: Fire soldiers work by pair. Their attacks don’t cost anything so you just have to pay for their movements on the board. If they are correctly aligned, they can protect one ally, and have to be in a triangular position to attack your opponent’s soldiers.

Wind: They pay no Energy for flying in a straight line to the end of their Hexline. They possess ranged attacks that costs energy.three Ways to Win:
