Summary: Very much an MSDOS game. looks as if it would run just fine on a pre-pentium machine but runs damn slow on my 64bit Qosmio. It is very laggy. It would be a bit of fun if it ran faster. Just that it takes a couple of seconds for the arrow to work after you use the mouse. More frustrating than fun.
Summary: This game is designed as a roguelike which means it copies a lot of the sensibility from an ancient genre of games that elevate replayability and increasing difficulty. The point of these games is rarely to win, but rather to experience a new deadly challenge each time. FTL succeeds brilliantly at this because it is definitely different each time and the challenges are often incredibly deadly.
