Fantastic Game!!

Fantastic game so far!! I was lucky enough to get a promo. I'll purchase some iap to support your wonderful game.

Experience so far:
Game runs great on iPad mini 2 with an ios 8.1.
No internet requirement to play so perfect for people who travel without an Internet. It also seems like a premium experience. No timers or traveling restrictions. Map is massive with hundreds of areas to travel.

Couldn't see the iap yet but they don't seem to be needed. Most likely to help speed up progress if you want. I don't know what they are called but The Paw Orbs are used for recruiting new random rare crew members and avoiding penalties on death. You can exchange your coins for more paw orbs or just complete the daily missions.

Story is great so far, there are some minor errors in the dialogue but nothing serious. Combat is great, intuitive, fast paced, and challenging just like FTL. You click on enemy rooms to target and disable the guns, shields, cloaking, etc. You can switch between the enemy ship and yours with ease by taping or swiping right or left.
No fuel, oxygen, or pause button in this game. You can run out of missiles and take hull damage but that can be fixed for free at the hangar or purchase on the fly with coins.

Managing the huge variety of crew and weapons is simple and fun when looking for the best combination in battles.

Overall, great experience!! If you like FTL you'll enjoy this game as well. Well worth the purchase.
It's currently on $4.99 discount price! I think it will go to $9.99 a while later?

How similar to FTL is the combat in this game?

I loved attacking specific rooms in FTL and having heavy soldiers board the enemy ship to cause chaos. Does this game have stuff like that?

How is this on an iPhone 7 plus? Is the screen area large enough to play comfortably or is this really an iPad title?

How about on the iPhone 7?

Since I can't play FTL on iPhone I wonder if this could be "my FTL".
