Enter a bleak cyberpunk future where a small resistance struggles against an oppressive regime with the freedom of humankind at stake. You're a commander who has to issue orders to his soldiers in order to claim victory over the enemy. Battles move fast, but you'll experience them a few seconds at a time. Plan your moves carefully, give your orders, and watch how things play out. The enemy will also be making its moves, so you'll have to consider every possibility to keep your people safe.

Play through a challenging campaign where the AI will dog your every step. Can you lead the resistance to victory against seemingly insurmountable odds? Looking for a little less commitment? Try out the Instant Skirmish mode to jump right into the action. Of course, the real challenge comes from taking on a human opponent. Play online with cross-platform multiplayer or in hotseat mode and see whose tactics reign supreme. With countless map variations, you'll find fresh challenges to test your strategies around every corner. Prove you have the superior synapses!

Think Carefully: You have all the time in the world to plan the actions of your soldiers, but once the turn starts you can only watch things play out.

Guide Every Move: It's up to you to decide where each soldier goes, how fast they move, and how they react to any enemies they see. You even control how they stand and which way they're looking. Total control, total responsibility.

A Challenging Campaign: Assume the role of a resistance commander and battle against an oppressive government regime. Strike a blow for freedom!

Multiplayer Battles: Go online and test your wits against another human, or challenge a friend on one device with the hotseat mode. Who is the superior commander?

Fight in Style: Stylish minimalistic visuals are backed by a pulse-pounding soundtrack that will put you in the mood for some serious tactical action!

Editors’ Choice

Frozen Synapse is a wonderfully complex, immensely satisfying turn-based tactical game. Use versatile controls to command your troops and outwit and defeat enemies on stark, stylish battlefields. It’s a game where your choices feel like they truly matter, which makes every victory all the more rewarding.

Too bad you have to have a monthly subscription

I bought this game on steam when it first released there many years ago on my PC. Since then I no longer have a pc and was thrilled to be able to buy it on iOS, but the thrill was quickly erased when I found out that you have to have a monthly subscription to play it, and you can’t just pay once to get it.

You play turn by turn as you try to kill targets, rescue ppl, reach goals etc, but you only see what the units see as they see it. So it’s kinda like a turn based FPS.

With different weapons and equipment (if I remember correctly), and people, to customize as you progress.

If memory serves me correctly the soundtrack is pretty decent too for the game.

If you like good thinking and precise action strategy type games you will love it, as long as you also like a little parasite(aka subscription) eating slowly away at your money.

It’s a shame too, cuz this was a great game I wouldn’t have even thought twice about having to buy it again for my phone after already buying it on my old pc.

I don’t get why they can’t have a subscription to their library of all their games for ppl who want to do that, but also have an option for ppl who want to just buy individual games and pay once for each game, oh well, their loss.

Very faithful port

Amazing game that is faithfully ported from the PC.

You should be warned that this game is a challenge... It will take time to learn the interface and controls and the tutorials are not interactive, which is a big problem for many. This game requires you to think quite a bit, it's not an action game. The graphics are spartan but I like the style and atmosphere. Complex and hardcore are two words I'd use to describe this game, and if that scares you, I'd stay away.

For those coming from the PC version, the iPad version doesn't support iOS standards like notifications. The PC version used email to notify you of turns but that's a little antiquated. Also it would be great if gamecenter could be patched in. I know that the server and player ids are based on a completely different system, but a lot of iOS players will be confused about matchmaking and hooking up with friends online. Finally graphically, sometimes I wish that some of the interface elements were a bit sharper.

Despite these nitpicks, even if you never touch multiplayer the game has tons of skirmish modes and a full story campaign. Once you learn the interface controlling your team is easy: you can make broad strokes or micromanage every tiny movement... which can mean the difference between life and death sometimes! Great music, quick loading and booting, snappy interface. Highly recommended game!
