Mode 7 are bringing Frozen Synapse over to iPad, and they've delivered a little video showcasing the tablet-based gameplay. We love a bit of the turn-based strategy in FS and we've been clamouring for a tablet port.

The game will be heading to Android devices after the iPad edition launches , and Destructoid reports that the Red DLC will make the jump to both operating systems at some point in the future. Oh, and there'll be cross-platform play too.

Looks to have made a very smooth transition to touch-screen :D

Will definitely get this when it's out on Android.
Thoroughly enjoyed it on the pc, but I don't go near the computer much these days so haven't played it in a long while.
The tablet is rarely out of my hands though. And if it works on my decrepit old 'phone, too, (doubtful - I think it's 2.2 or 2.3) that'll be even better.

I know what you mean. My PC is both a work device and a gaming station, and sometimes the last thing I want to do is sit at a desk and play a game. I love my Vita, my 3DS, and my iPad precisely because I can play them anywhere, usually in front of something I'm absently watching on Netflix.

I much prefer PC gaming to any other. PC at a desk for FPS, on the sofa and TV for anything else.

When playing my Vita, I keep thinking about hooking it up to a TV screen as that would make playing it easier. Mobile is not for me. If and when I go somewhere, I am either driving or doing the something I went to do.

Same with tablets for me. I have my main PC hooked up to my TV and a screen. My girlfriend has her PC hooked in to the TV and I have 2 more PCs on a bench. Anything you can do on a tablet can be done on those a lot quicker and easier.

Touchscreen is so inefficient for most things... gah.

I'll get my coat...

I don't know about that. I'd argue that adventure games are better on a tablet, same with certain strategy games. We argue that games tend to be better on the base platforms for which they were primarily designed, but that's not necessarily true for older titles and genres led solely by the mouse.

I will never appreciate "virtual thumbsticks" though... but then that's bastardisation rather than innovation and adaptation.
