Hit Game Frozen Synapse Coming to iPhone Later This Year

Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: A GOOD DUST-UP :: Read Review »

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.
