Glacier Blast is an exciting turn-based puzzle game for you and your friends. Choose from a set of strategically organized ice breakers, then drag them over clusters of ice tiles.

And if you’re playing offline, you can sync your results to the leaderboard later. Download for free from the Windows Store.
