The award winning PC spaceship simulation game from Subset Games comes to iPad! Includes the free expansion, FTL: Advanced Edition, which adds new ships, enemies, events, weapons, and more!

- IGN - Game Of the Year Nominee 2012

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.

I just need to vent my frustration on my straight 8 lose 0 win. All Normal difficulty.

This game is a dick! I start to have an impression that a dude who win 18 games in a row is just lucky, not skillful.

I am going to be a pussy and play on easy.

I'm not winning 18 times in a row. Looking at my stats, I've got about 13% victories out of around 230 games. About half of the victories are in normal, and most of the losses/ quits. Probably if you quit early in a hopeless run, you'll be less frustrated (although I think you usually need to make quite a few major mistakes/ be unlucky several times to actually make a run irrecoverable).

And which ships you're using makes a lot of difference too - some are pretty bad, some are ok but have one or two flaws that you need to work around. (No shields, very weak shields, only missile weapons, no scanners, etc.)

Tried to edit the IPA to install on my 4S, and did it, but it crashed all the times. The one time that I got to the start menu, the text was extremely tiny. Maybe on a 6+... but nothing smaller I'm afraid.

Works on 6+. Have had a couple of crashes. Generally it's a tad small but you can use the zoom screen function and it's fine.

It does seem to ignore the sound switch so need to turn sound down manually if not wanted. Also can't get it to fully stretch to fill the whole screen. Can anyone else? (I'm using full force)
Minor gripes only
