App description: ***WARNING - Only compatible with iPad 2 or newer -- Will NOT run on iPad 1! ****

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!

PC versions awards include:
- IGN - Game Of the Year Nominee 2012
- PC Gamer - 2012 Best Short-Form Game
- Indie Game Festival 2013 - Excellence in Design
- Indie Game Festival 2013 - Audience Award
- Game Developers Choice Awards 2013 - Best Debut: Subset Games

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.

Perfect for iPad, just a pity they weren't a bit quicker with the port.

Can't wait, going to be expensive tomorrow! Must admit, I'd have been even more excited for this if it wasn't for playing Out There a lot recently.

Been following this for a while am all but ready to buy this.
Just one question.
Is there an endgame. Is it possible to finish this? If so then I'm getting it tonight
Thanks

Oh I know, I played the PC one for a bit (only stopped because I knew it'd make it's way to iPad). Yeah the gameplay is a lot more combat, but still, how do I explain it.... err my enthusiasm for a steak dinner would be slightly diminished if I had eaten chops for lunch.

I love the analogy! I'm still hungry though Out There is a really great game.
