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.

Even better now with support for newer iPads

I have loved this game for years, but it’s even better now, looks fantastic on the 2018 iPad Pro. Thank you for updating!

Almost perfect

I think the game is perfect aside from one thing, the ships interiors are really empty. Even just a table and chairs bunks in smaller rooms that don’t get upgraded, or smaller systems like pipes or cargo, and when you add a new system, it changes part of the room to add the system. I think this would be cool and improve on the games atmosphere which is otherwise spot on.

Needs an Update

Love the game, but it needs to be updated to support the new iPad Pro resolutions.

It makes no sense to only have one ship zoomed in at a time when both could be fully displayed if they got rid of the black bars on either side.

Fix that and it’s a five star rating!
