Micro-managing tactics game Frozen Synapse is currently free on iPhone and iPad, to celebrate the launch of developer Mode 7's new PC game, Frozen Cortex.

The game is all about planning the next five seconds of a battle, by telling your team where to go and who to shoot and where to aim and when to crouch. The only thing you don't tell them to do is breath.

We said "a very good port of an excellent strategy game, Frozen Synapse is equally gripping whether your opponents are human or otherwise," in our Silver Award review.
