The popular PC and Mac title FTL: Faster Than Light is being released for the iPad. The game will feature touch-based controls, and it will include all of the new additions of the FTL: Advanced Edition expansion.
FTL is a real-time spaceship simulation where players must control every aspect of their ship and crew. The game also features choose your own adventure-like elements, and it is known for its level of difficulty.
FTL: Advanced Edition will be available IAP-free for $9.99 on the App Store on April 3rd. That is also the date that the advanced edition expansion will be available for PC users.
Here's the official description from the official website:
FTL is a spaceship simulation roguelike-like. Its aim is to recreate the atmosphere of running a spaceship exploring the galaxy (like Firefly/Star Trek/BSG etc.) In any given episode of those classic shows, the captain is always yelling “Reroute power to shields!” or giving commands to the engineer now that their Warp Core is on fire. We wanted that experience, as opposed to the “dog fighting in space” that most videogames focus on. We wanted a game where we had to manage the crew, fix the engines, reroute power to shields, target the enemy life support, and then figure out how to repel the boarders that just transported over!
