A new Humble Indie Bundle is started yesterday, a great and new opportunity to know and buy new indie game for a cheap price.
This time the offer it’s a bit different from the former edition, there is just 1 videogame in the main bundle: Frozen Synapse, but If you beat the promotion average you will also get the Humble Frozenbyte Bundle which includes the games Trine, Shadowgrounds Survivor, Shadowgrounds, the game prototype Jack Claw and a preorder for Splot which is currently in development.
As of writing, that means you’ll have to part with $4.51 to get Trine, Shadowgrounds, Shadowgrounds: Survivor, Splot and Jack Claw — a fair deal considering Frozen Synapse alone usually cost around $25 on Steam.
The main game Frozen Synapse is pure 2D strategy turn-based game where you have to manage the actions of your “soldier” into reaching some goals.
usually this involve in enter a building with a lot of doors and rooms with your squad and reach some point while killing all the enemy around.
You have soldiers with different equipment and weapons, you can issue orders like shot to closer targets, or run to a cover and so on.
Once you have issued all your order you can end your turn and see the outcome of your choice.
There are other game modes as well, including Hostage Rescue where you’ll need to escort one or more VIPs to safety.
Multiplayer for Frozen Synapse is also possible. You log-in upon loading the game and are connected all the time, meaning you can be challenged to a match at any point (dropping out of multi-player mid-mission, it’s easy to go back to where you left).
It’s also possible to play with a friend exchanging your moves via email, a nice option IMO.
