Easy Mode and Older League Modes

Two important things to point out from the Manager Update:

- There's now an Easy Mode which lets you see the AI's plans before they are committed. This is a great way to help new players learn the game, so if you see anyone struggling to get started then point them in that direction.

- The previous League modes which were available from the Single Player Menu are STILL THERE! They're now available by clicking "Basic Leagues" on the right-hand side of the Single Player menu.

On my 4th game ever I played the 3rd ranked player in the globe. It came down to the final play and as I committed my turn I thought I had it in the bag. As the play unfolded and I watched my enemy's robots effortlessly swat the ball from my runner, I realized there was a complexity here I hadn't appreciated. While the game came down to the final play, it wasn't really ever that close - my opponent had boxed me in and there was simply no way out.

I love a game that makes you believe you can win until the final instant, only to realize that the depth of tactics ran far deeper than you had anticipated. Is this game for everyone? No, probably not. But it deserves more folks playing online and giving it some life online. It could use a bit more polish, but I'd rather have a great idea with good polish than a good idea with great polish.

I wasn't sure about this game. I thought it may be very slow, basic and simple. How wrong was I.

Basically, this is a game in which you are trying to get the ball to one side of the 'field' to the other, while your opponent is trying to stop you and get the ball to the opposite side. Sounds simple enough. The way you do this is quite unique. The game is split into turns. Every turn, you tell your robots (which look stunning, just like the rest of the game) to run or throw the ball. Your opponent does the same. When both are finished, you hit the 'play' button and see what happens. This is a great way to structure a game. Personally, I am a big fan of having a more chilled out, relaxed approach to the game.
But there is more to the game.
When it comes down to it, this is a strategy game. You need to work out where you think your opponent will move, try to intercept their throws, tackle them, and just generally get in their way. There is an extrordinary depth to the game, and is very easy to spend hours at a time trying to fine tune your tactic.

There is only one very small issue I have with this game, and that is that even when you are playing against the computer, you have to wait for it to complete its turn. I don't know whether this is just to make the game seem like you are actually playing against another person or what, but I personally would prefer to not to have to wait. I want to see what happens next!

It is a game which is very easy to get into, but very hard to master.

A sports game on the surface, a strategy game at heart, an overall package that is, for me, very hard to beat. There is nothing like it, in a very good way.

The movement of your players matters. Run or Pass the ball? Plan it out on your tactical board. How much time will you have in this turn? This is easier to determine as the posessing team since you have an advantage in dominating the course of the game, nonetheless the defending team may have good insight and read the game.
This is a simulatenous-turn game with an abstract play field. The geometry of the field is your playground. A plan worth 5 - 10 of your minutes thinking about it is compressed into a 5 - 10 second exchange that will reveal your success.

This is the tactical 1v1 game I have been looking for. One one hand, it has the benefits of being turn-based, like board games typically are. On the other hand, it's based on the advantages of being a computer game which is reflected in the wonderful UI as well as in the rules and in the mechanics. I enjoy the tactical depth of this game very much.

Okay who isn't a sucker for Robots in ANYTHING? Seriously?
Frozen Cortex explores this with a slight twist on American Football. You control all the robotic players on the field in this turned based strategy game. Never knowing what your enemies move will be. You must guide your robots to dominance over many turns. What makes Frozen Cortex really riveting is developing a strategy and seeing it unfold. Rather that be success or devastating failure. While the rules are simple as is the playing the game. Planning the right formation or pass takes mastery over time. With a plethora of customization options, from teams to map editors. Frozen Cortex has everything one would want in a sports game. The only issue I ran into while playing the game was excited clicking through some replays and missing them. Did I mention the friggin robots?

I made a video review to show off some of the features and gameplay of this game!

This game had a huge start. There was over 100 people online at the same time. Now when the time has passed, there's barely 10 players online at the same time. I hope this game would get more active players.

Well, it's still a great game to play offline and especially if you have a friend to play with in multiplayer.
