Games like FTL, Atom Zombie Smash, or Kerbal Space Program
Hi all, I'm enjoying both the above games on my Mac but I'd like something that's got a similar feel or mood on my iPad; in FTL I like the roguelike, space exploration, die-and-start-over-with-higher-stats aspect. In Atom Zombie Smash I like the easy-to-understand but hard-to-master strategy elements, and in Kerbal Space Program I like slowly learning more about what everything does, refinining my design and trying again.
What games, if any, capture some or all of these elements? I'm not that into anything that's freemium with expendable IAPs, so that stuff is off the menu. I know that closes a lot of doors, but I just hate that model.
