FTL Review

Galaxy Map, Game Informer
2 July 2014
  • Summary: Commanding your own starship is one of the few fantasies that all science fiction fans share. While it is fun to watch Kirk or Picard command their respective Enterprises though thick and thin, the entire time you’re watching you want that thrill to be yours. That’s where video games have the advantage over other mediums, video games have in one way or another given you the chance to command a ship though the stars.

Smelly Review: Faster Than Light

Stan_Rykert, Game Informer
23 April 2014
  • Summary: FTL: Faster Than Light is a terrific game, and makes a stellar debut on the iPad. Yo, do you smell that? Anyway, taps and slides replace clicks, but nothing is lost in translation. You'll only need a few minutes of play to grasp the control scheme, at which point it will feel like the game was built from scratch with touch in mind. Did you fart? Seriously, it reeks in here. Advanced Edition features fromm the new PC release are here, but they're optional.

FTL is Fast and Fun and Available Without the huge Hassle of Steam

Andre Kruppa, Amazon
4 December 2013
  • Summary: This is an excellent deceptively simple game that is in essence a decision making and consequence engine. It plays well, is very challenging, and combines some old school video game notions with interesting mission based game play. I like it a lot! The game revolves around delivering a message to the Federation fleet by transiting a series of sectors each of which have a number of star systems. The game presents the player with a variety of choices.

Solid Effort

J. Leigh "JL", Amazon
1 December 2013
  • Summary: Pros: Puts you in the position of being a starship captain. The game is easy to learn. Game mechanic is simple yet provides enough to create rich gameplay. Graphics are also simple and just enough to communicate what's necessary. You make moral decisions in the game. E.g. You wonder whether you're better off ignoring a distress signal or take the risk of it being an ambush. You only get 1 ship, and if you die along the way the entire game is over.

Stick with it

John, Amazon
15 August 2013
  • Summary: The first few times I played this game I was getting frustrated because even on easy I was dieing all the time, usually just a few sectors in. Here are a few hints: Play the game on easy. Jump to as many systems as you can in each sector. This will ensure you are evenly matched or you over match your opponents, which means easier scrap. Scrap is quite valuable. However, don't get caught by the Rebels as you will recover only 1 fuel, nothing else.

Good rogue-like game

Brian Chin, Amazon
7 July 2013
  • Summary: Fun and addicting game. Each play through will be different and you will fail sometimes, but that's the nature of rogue-like games. Even playing on easy doesn't always mean it will feel easy, just less difficult than the other modes.
