In FTL you experience the atmosphere of running a spaceship trying to save the galaxy. It's a dangerous mission, with every encounter presenting a unique challenge with multiple solutions. What will you do if a heavy missile barrage shuts down your shields? Reroute all power to the engines in an attempt to escape, power up additional weapons to blow your enemy out of the sky, or take the fight to them with a boarding party? This “spaceship simulation roguelike-like” allows you to take your ship and crew on an adventure through a randomly generated galaxy filled with glory and bitter defeat.

Key Features:
– Give orders to your crew, manage ship power distribution and choose weapon targets in the heat of battle.
– Pause the game mid-combat to evaluate your strategy and give orders.
– Upgrade your ship and unlock new ones with the help of seven diverse alien races.
– Hundreds of text based encounters will force you to make tough decisions.
– Each play-through will feature different enemies, events, and results to your decisions. No two play-throughs will be quite the same.
– Permadeath means when you die, there's no coming back. The constant threat of defeat adds importance and tension to every action.

Reading through the negative reviews, you have to realize this is a roguelike game, the poin

Great Game, with one complainant (5 stars)
I love this game. This is one my favorite games on my iPad. I have one issue though. I understand that the game is supposed to be difficult. I understand that when you lose that it is a culmination of multiple events that cause you to lose. I often feel though that the games mechanics are tilted against you. For example, I was heading to a quest marker in sector two to try and unlock a new ship. I was also trying to get the tough little ship

One of the best games I've ever played. (5 stars)
This is tough at first, but after a few premature deaths you'll learn how to handle yourself. It auto saves, so you can play for five mins, close it and start from where you left off.
