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.

What I was looking for.

Being looking for such a game like this for quite some time. Loving it and finding the game to be very addictive. My only dislikes (which are minor) and wishes are
1:not having to constantly be moving on by a timer (before the rebels catch you) and this is only because I like taking my time and wanting to explore every stop .(adding more length to the game).
2: would be cool if it was longer(adding more stages to go through).
3: not sure if it would be possible but multi player would be awesome. Like no timer and can just jump around through all the levels having it out with real players till you lose.

Great Game.

FTL was exactly what I was looking for. Finally a good, fun strategy game on the IPad. Yes, the graphics aren't the best but I think that it's current art style suites the game. In FTL, you captain your own spaceship. The information you hold is vital to the remaining federation fleet, and you must get to the federation base before the rebels catch you. The game is split into eight sectors, each with more beacons that you can visit. You can upgrade your ships existing systems, or buy more systems and augments for your ship. You can also choose which ship you use, and buy weapons/drones for offensive or defensive purposes.

All and all, this is a great game. I would recommend it to all space lovers.
