    Casual gamers beware! Frozen Synapse is a game that will challenge your ability to formulate tactics that lead you to victory. A great change of pace in comparison to other easier games available; and with a user interface that is superior to that of the PC, and potentially endless replay value due to a random level generator, you really shouldn't let this one slip past you.

    The best way to explain this game is, it is essentially a complex game of chess. It really tests ones ability to strategize and to out-smart the opponent. If you enjoy a game that puts your mind to the test, I could not recommend this game more. But if you are a casual gamer that does not enjoy much of a challenge, then I guarantee this would be a waste of your time and a major cause ofThe best way to explain this game is, it is essentially a complex game of chess.

    Frozen Synapse requires a bit of time to adequately pull off a mission, since learning all of the squad’s commands and finding a strategy that works just doesn’t happen within minutes.

    There are few games that can claim the depth of gameplay and the polished experience that Frozen Synapse presents. Strategy fans should rejoice.

    Frozen Synapse ($6.99, iPad) is stuck in the past with layers of frustration covering the strategy filled gameplay making it one to strategically avoid. Sadly, the game is frozen in time, and just isn’t made for the iPad era.
