Frozen Synapse

Frozen Synapse

I’ve bought this game three times now and I’d buy it again if I had more free time. I bought it first as a standalone Linux game. Later I picked up another copy in a bundle that gave me a Steam key for it (it was part of a bundle and there were other games in that bundle I liked, but having a copy of Frozen Synapse on Steam was the sweetener that sealed the deal for me) and I subsequently bought it for Android because I couldn’t get enough of it.

My biggest problem with this game is it plays to my own desire to optimize and speculate on what my opponent is going to do in a turn-based strategy game. The core mechanic tends to lead me to a decision-paralysis. And I love the game intensely for it.

If enemy unit is in cover, your unit will need more time to hit him; if enemy units runs into your stationary unit, your unit will shoot first because he had a bonus to this timer, and the enemy had a penalty for running. Thus, if you can predict what your opponent is about to do, you can be 100% sure what will happen when they encounter one of your units. If.

I was a beta tester for the game during the summer, and felt it was really going somewhere. It turned out beyond my expectations! The game kept upgrading, both graphic-wise and strategy-wise, as the developer added new pieces and maps each time more complex and fun. Also, the addition of the level editor makes the game all the more replayable.

**You should definitely buy the game, even only to support the developer.

To make it short, the game is awesome!**
