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.

Frozen Cortex prende di forza tutti quegli aspetti di gioco del passato Frozen Synapse e li applica velatamente a un gioco che vuole prendersi decisamente meno sul serio. Niente più trama fantascientifica o possibile collegamento tra le missioni (non che prima fosse chissà che), ma un semplice gioco interamente basato sullo sport del futuro da loro immaginato. Le regole non sono difficili: una volta con la palla non si può correre indietro e i passaggi devono essere fatti sempre in avanti, anche lateralmente, ma sempre in avanti. La palla può essere lanciata in una zona vuota e non è possibile lanciare oltre i blocchi del campo più alti. Manco a dirlo, i punti si realizzano quando un giocatore oltrepassa la linea di fondocampo avversaria con la palla in mano.

Le partite di questa variante di football non sono altro che la rappresentazione robotica della volontà degli allenatori. Impersonando uno di questi, il nostro obiettivo varierà di modalità in modalità: dalla semplice vittoria del campionato, alla stringa di vittorie più lunghe, fino alle più devastanti modalità Timed Turns e Killer in cui, rispettivamente, avremo 30 secondi per decidere le nostre mosse e perderemo uno dei nostri robot in caso di bloccaggio. A nostra disposizione avremo un team da cinque elementi interamente personalizzabile e migliorabile. In effetti sarà difficile sostituire i propri giocatori per altri migliori, ma basterà fare due o tre partite per rendersi conto immediatamente di come il miglioramento della squadra sia necessario se si vuole raggiungere l’obiettivo del primo posto. In particolare, i nostri giocatori saranno il risultato di quattro caratteristiche principali — evasione, forza, velocità e ripresa — che man mano si andranno ad affiancare ad altre come l’intelligenza o soluzioni diversi per una modellatura sempre più personale dei singoli elementi. Dimenticatevi i personaggi equilibrati, in Frozen Cortex contano solo i campioni, quindi la specializzazione di una caratteristica diventerà presto necessità.

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.

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.

I want to recommend this game, but I can't. I want to LIKE this game, but I can't.

A deep, rich strategic experience in a novel format (i.e. future sportsball)? Practically auto-sold on this game. After playing through the tutorial, I get the basics of how to plan turns and such, so I move on to the Basic League.

Here's the thing, though: this game does a terrible job of explaining itself. I know how to move my bots, but not why I should. It takes me a couple games before I realize that the goal of the game is less "get the ball in the end zone," and more "figure out what your opponent isn't going to expect or counter, and do that," but I STILL don't know how to reliably gauge what are good options or plays. Half the time it feels like whatever I simulated during the Planning Phase doesn't work out -- bots don't block like I expect them to, or (more importantly) chase the ball carrier like I expect them to. The bots have half a dozen stats that aren't even mentioned in the game tutorial/help (nor shown in the tabular Free Agent view). I still don't know what the hell "Halt" does.

Undeterred, I move on to the regular League, hoping that will give me more options for managing my team between games. But then I discover that I have the worst bots in the GCL, and my salary cap goes up by a paltry few hundred dollars per win while the free agents' "expected" salary shoots up by over a thousand dollars per game week. So, I'm basically stuck with my starting lineup of losers and mostly-losers, facing off against teams with all green (positive) stats -- my bot tackled an enemy bot who literally shrugged it off and walked past because his RESIL was maxed. I'm playing a game that appears to be about outmaneuvering/out-thinking an enemy when I am unable to estimate the outcome of a play and don't even really know which plays are good ones, AND my guys are the worst bots in the League? The only way out appears to be to grind losses until I get better at understanding how to make the best plays possible with my awful lineup, and after 15 losses I don't think I want to play anymore.

I think part of this could be made better if there was a better strategy guide to the game, but I didn't see anything like it online. There was a section of Mode7's forums devoted to Frozen Cortex, but there was nothing useful there. It's a shame, the game seems like it has a great depth of strategy to it, but it's too obfuscated and inaccessible to new players.

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!
I hope you enjoy!
