Posted by Tre Lawrence on January 9th, 2015 iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
The award-winning, turn-based, simultaneous tactical game that is Frozen Synapse is now available for the iPhone.
The game boasts a bunch of interesting features that mimic the desktop experiences. Players get turn-based gameplay, single and multiplayer scenarios, social networking integration, Youtube video export, email notifications, an electronica soundtrack, and more – now in a convenient travel size.
Frozen Synapse, a popular turn-based strategy game from renowned developer Mode 7, will become a universal app and arrive on the iPhone and iPod touch at some point later this year, according to a report from Pocket Tactics. You can get the game on the iPad right now, however, and that version has received a plethora of great reviews.
Notably, the game’s user interface is jam-packed on the PC version and it’s already clunky on the iPad; there’s just a lot of buttons and options that make the game work. It’s hard to imagine Mode 7 being able to fit all of the game’s buttons on such a small screen.
We’ll see how it works on a 4-inch (or 3.5-inch) screen when Frozen Synapse is released for the iPhone later this year.
In our review, Rob Rich says, “Frozen Synapse is a great addition to the iPad’s library. There are a lot of ins and outs to learn and remember but it can be a very rewarding and entertaining strategy game for those who are willing to give it a shot.”
Turn-based shooter, Frozen Synapse, has been confirmed by Pocket Gamer for a May 16th release. In this classic indie strategy game, you will guide a squad of soldiers across a neon battlefield, via the single-player campaign or multiplayer mode.
