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.

Awesome sauce


I've been playing this game on and off for years on the PCs, it's amazing and I'm excited to now be able to share this version with my son :-)



Third app I ever downloaded.
Still on my iPad. Love it.

Beam me up!

I've played FTL on mac quite a bit.. it's a great game. But I was a bit worried that the iPad version would be "FTL-lite" or watered down in some way.
Well i was worried for nothing. It rocks.

-Great variety in gameplay... and gameplay is king.
-Controls (it's real easy to manage your crew, systems, weapons etc.)
-looks great and has a sweet soundtrack.
-It just feels good to finally command a ship of my own... right Bones?

-I guess the price might seem a lot to some people. But it seems fair to me. I've played over 20hrs (and counting) of the mac version.. and i enjoy it every time i play it. (even when my fave crew member gets eaten by a giant spider) So I know i'll get my money's worth.
-New players may be a bit confused at first. It takes a few games until you feel confident commanding your ship. (you'll die a lot, but it won't feel cheap) - if you need help, just search uTube.

Love it!
