Bundlestars have released their latest bundle in the form of the Shockwave Bundle. 10 Steam keys for only £2.75.
Frozen Synapse is still one of the best strategy games we've ever played. Ever. We gave it a perfect score in our Frozen Synapse review.
"Frozen Synapse is the next logical evolution of the turn-based strategy genre," I wrote. "Mode 7 Games have created a perfect foundation for years of addictive tactical fun - and now, dear readers, it's up to us to get involved and ensure that Frozen Synapse becomes the phenomenon it rightly deserves to be."
What more is there to say? Oh, compatibility, I guess. "Requires iOS 4.3 or later. Compatible with iPad." Go get it!
Humble Bundle are doing another Android offering this week, with all of the games on offer available for the mobile platform as well as PC, Mac, and Linux as usual.
This week's range of reliably excellent titles that you can pay whatever you want for include: Aquaria, Fractal, Organ Trail: Director’s Cut, and Stealth Bastard Deluxe, and if you beat the average (currently $4.66 at the time of writing), you'll unlock the superb Broken Sword: Director’s Cut and Frozen Synapse as well.
Just a quickie: the iPad version of Frozen Synapse is out now, allowing players to access the tense turn-based battles while out and about (or lounging idly in front of The Apprentice). Full cross-compatibility with the PC version means that games can be continued across both platforms, including the full singleplayer campaign and every multiplayer gametype.
Considering that we handed out a perfect score in our Frozen Synapse review, this is probably worth checking out if you've got a fiver to spare. As far as I know, an Android tablet version is planned - release date TBA.
Frozen Synapse is coming to iPad on May 16th, and we're rather excited about it. First of all, we awarded the original game a perfect score on PC for its blend of fast, fun yet deeply tactical asymmetrical battles, but it will also support cross-play functionality across both platforms. Mode 7 Games' Paul Taylor has released a new video demonstrating how PC and iPad will work in perfect harmony, with players able to pick up their battles on either device.Click here to read more...
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.
Double Eleven will be working with indie studio Mode 7 to bring Frozen Synapse to PlayStation consoles. Frozen Synapse Tactics will apparently be much more than just a port, packing brand new features and a "makeover."Click here to read more...
The second barrage of deals from Steam’s latest sale are not much to write home about at first glance, but head into the Indie Sale (away from the front page) and you’ll find some cracking deals. We’ve got the highlights below, but here’s an honorary mention to Arma II: Combined Operations, which falls to £12.49 should you wish to join in the Day Z madness.
This may not be as good a deal as Gamersgate’s offer earlier in the month in terms of content, but for those looking for just the base game it’s certainly worth a look. A saving of a fiver isn’t too shabby either.
One of last year’s stand out strategy titles, Frozen Synapse takes turn-based strategy to a new level. Best of all, you get two copies of the game with each purchase so you can go halves with a friend or gift it away.
Rightly crowned Dealspwn's favourite FPS of last year, the return of the Serious One was an explosive and over-the-top experience that was just pure mindless fun. Considering the saving is fairly substantial, you should seriously consider this one.
Finally, we have a deal for Romino’s brawly MOBA title. If you missed out on Gamersgate’s recent bundle offer, here’s another chance to get hold of a copy for under £2.50.
Frozen Synapse, the outstanding indie turn-based strategy game from Mode 7 studios, will be receiving a retail special edition this September. For £25, you'll get the original game, a Sticker, Postcard, soundtrack, extra Steam gifting key and the RED Expansion pack encased in a "fancy" blue box.Click here to read more...
It’s day 3 in the big summer sale, and it’s all change for the nine offers on the front page. We’ve got the highlights of today’s listings for you below.
The open world zombie FPS was met with a mixed response upon its release, but it’s hard to argue at the value of today’s price cut. The DLC is also on offer, and the 4-pack currently works out at just over a fiver a copy, so there are plenty of purchasing options in regards to this one.
We’ve seen plenty of deals like this one in the past, with so much crammed into the bundle it really is hard to ignore. Please be aware that the standard version of the game is also priced at £4.99, so make sure you’re selecting the GOTY Edition to put in your basket to avoid much rage later on.
One of the stand-out titles of last year, Frozen Synapse is one of the best turn-based strategy games the genre has to offer. This price would be great value for just one copy, but you actually get two with every purchase so you can take the battle online with a friend.
And finally, more Indie Bundle fun. Today’s games are BIT.TRIP BEAT, Braid, Bunch of Heroes, Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet, and Runespell: Overture.
If you missed yesterday's deals, you have until tomorrow morning to take advantage of them. To see the rest of today's deals, along with all the other offers currently in the sale, head over to Steam's front page here.
Gamefly are gearing up for Indie-pendence day (see what they did there?) with a nice little bundle that includes the phenomenal strategy game Frozen Synapse, chilling horror title Amnesia, monochromatic darling Limbo and more. Considering the quality of the games on offer, this is definitely worth a tenner.
Breakthrough indie strategy hit Frozen Synapse has received its first major expansion pack: Frozen Synapse: Red. Contained within the hefty download, players will find riot shields, new modes, 15 new missions, 10 challenges, more music and - for the first time - cooperative play. Trailers, deets and all sorts of treats below.Click here to read more...

Here's your second dose of industry prizes for the day: the IGF 2012 awards that honour the best that the independent scene has to offer. Fez, the astounding dimension-shifting XBLA platformer from Polytron, scooped up the Seumas McNally Grand Prize - and is currently in certification with Microsoft meaning that we'll be able to play it soon. Soon. Yes, soon. Sorry, but I've never been able to use that word in conjunction with Fez before. It feels nice, and we just hope that it doesn't get delayed again.
Frozen Synapse, Dear Esther, Beat Sneak Bandit and student project WAY also received plaudits. In mainstream news, Microsoft has pledged to publish Super Time Force as an XBLA exclusive, which comes complete with contract and sponsorship.
We've got the whole shebang after the breeak.Click here to read more...
OnLive has announced that they'll be hosting demo versions of all the nominees and honourable mentions in this year's Independent Games Festival until March 11th. If you've yet to sample the delights of Dear Esther, Frozen Synapse, SpaceChem, To The Moon and Atom Zombie Smasher, it's high time you did.
You can also vote for your favourites... and if you like them, buy at a 75% discount once the promotion finishes. We'll be ready with a roundup.Click here for the full list of OnLive indie demos >>
Frozen Synapse handily got our vote for the best strategy and indie game of 2011, and a cross-platform iPad version will soon be arriving on the app store. However, Mode 7 Games are apparently "always open" to the idea of bringing the experience to other platforms... and that a Vita or PS3 version will be entirely "up to the platform holders."Click here to read more...
The Little Big Bunch bundle has gone live and it's veritably mouthwatering. You can see the lineup above, but for even further encouragement (as if any sane person would need it), you really should check out Jon's reviews of Frozen Synapse and Serious Sam: Double D. The former has already made our Game of the Year shortlist.
This time, everything's quite UK-oriented, with proceeds split between developers and the charity GamesAid. As with Humble Bundle, there's a slider so you can decide how much of your purchase goes where.
Do it. Do it now!
We love the Humble Bundle team and the work they do, and it's good to see more outfits following their model. This Christmas, Curve, Just Add Water and Mode 7 will be teaming up to form the Little Big Bunch, and releasing a bumper package of cracking indie games in a Pay What You Want window, with additional proceeds going to charity GamesAid.Click here to read more...
Back in February, we gave Frozen Synapse a perfect ten in our full review... with good reason. This innovative Indie strategy title from Mode 7 Games is a genuine game-changer that replaces tedious turtling with a thriving social network and the ability to manage many battles at a time. The interface is slick, the action is intense and the singleplayer is as solid as its outstanding multiplayer suite.
Put simply, strategy will never be the same again. And with each download netting you two accounts codes, you can also get a mate involved. Perfect for Christmas presents?
