Yet another bug list posted on Facebook, starting to fell depressed, if they want flawless game it will take them another 2 years :

Todays bugs:

• [BUG] 7.2 if crew is healed the ‘healing’ overlay stays on them forever
• [BUG] Delay times, even outside of debug, seem to be tripled
• [BUG] when crew are knocked back- when they get back up it makes the ‘attack-target’ sfx
• [BUG] Mission 6 shipbuilder, transferred crew are invisible on new ship - prolly same bug as below
• [BUG] once crew's body disappears the walls stay transparent even after they're gone
* [BUG] Armstrong Calcutron (shield boost upgrade 1) give crew max HP increase 120%, need match hp
• [BUG] Losing the ship during combat - need to improve that ship direction indicator (let’s make it 200% size)

The biggest mistake this dev. has made is to constantly give out stupid release "projections". This was a day 1 purchase for me, now I assume it'll just be a bug addled mess when it comes out.

I suspect the biggest mistake was just biting off more than they can chew. Anyone can have the idea for a game, even a great idea. That doesn't mean they have the capacity to implement it, which is rare.

There is another app called Star Command in the AppStore now. How's that going to pan out?

I think it's by the people who made StarBase Orion.

Look into it, it's called Faster Than Light.
Basically the same game but much more than 3 hours gameplay.
They have won many awards but for some reason are holding off on a iOS release.

Nope not that 1, FTL.
Touch arcade did a page on it ages ago.
Would be great for iPad too
