Frozen synapse is an amazing and well thought out game, and the complex strategy never gets old. The only thing stopping me from giving this game 5 stars is the apparent absence an ability to change modes in skirmish and the lack of a level editor. While this normally wouldn't be a large deal, it does mention those things in the help section, which really isn't very helpful. That having been said, the rest of the game, from its incredibly well crafted and thought out plot to it's complex and addictive gameplay is worth the 13 dollars that it costs

Read For Information

People need to stop whining and exaggerating that this is so hard I can't even kill one red guy.. The game comes with tutorial videos that are helpful to others.. I'm 12 and had a victory the first match, I saw the tutorials and understood the point of the game, make wise decisions and plans. Recommend this to strategic gamers or people that like these types of games, oh and BTW it does involve shooting if you didn't know


Maybe the best strategy game and one of the best overall games on the App Store!

The online components that make up the multiplayer matchmaking/lobby/menu--along with handling both synchronous and asynchronous gameplay in a unique manner to iOS-- make this a fantastic experience.

The single-player is challenging and fun with plenty of levels and custom skirmishes, etc...

The tactics, depth and strategy are top notch...HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
