    I find cloaking to be great for the final battle, as when he spams all the attack drones/ missiles etc just time your cloak to avoid the brunt of it.

    I had a great run when I managed to get a slug crewmember, a bomb that did massive damage to crew and a really strong laser. Meant I could just pick the crew off easily. You just have to adapt to the crew/weapons/upgrades you find.

    Finally completed it with all ships (A&B variants) on normal difficulty.

    Frustrating at times but still my most played game of the last few years. Now off to find some mods and do it all over again :D

    I played the beta too much and never bothered to play the full game. Luckily the beta was awesome enough.

    New 'Advanced Edition' incoming (for free!)

    And an iPad edition (not free, understandably)

    This game needs Steam Workshop integration.

    That is all.

    With an Osprey! Most unexpected.

    I want to play it even more. I've not had a proper go at using drones and using the invasion options. I just never got the right stuff.

    I finally unlocked the Type B Zoltan Ship, and took it out for a test drive... which lasted more than an hour and resulted in a win! \o/

    I've been trying it out on a touchscreen, but it doesn't quite work yet. Would love to see them patch it up, as then I wouldn't need an Android version at all. :D

    Advanced Edition has been dated for April 3rd. That's just one week away!

    I've still not even got to the final sector yet (think my highest is 6th) but I love this game! Looking forward to seeing the new additions next week.

    Got this in a Steam sale, shamefully never played it. How do you think it will translate to a touch screen only device? More likely to play it on my iPad you see.

    So long as the pause button is easy to bash at any time it should be just fine on touchscreen.

    So the ipad version is out. Just downloading now but haven't had a chance to give it a go yet. Just a heads up!

    I've downloaded too but have yet to start... Time to move the thread to general gaming perhaps? ;-)

    Aw man, now I'm going to buy this on iPad. Then I'm going to play it on the train. Then I'm going to completely miss my stop and end up in Bognor.

    How appropriate. You fight like a cow.

    @Gambit1977 your tactics make a massive difference in FTL. I can get to the final sector maybe four out of five times now, and beat the game half the time. I imagine it'll be easier on 'easy'. :p

    Sometimes you just don't quite get the right stuff available in shops, for example, but it's still mostly skill that determines how well you do.

    Yeah Out There is pretty crap compared to this. You will still die a lot but it's much less down to randomly running out of an essential material than it is because you didn't fight back hard enough ;)

    There's so much more in the way of possibilities in FTL than Out There.

    Any Netflix library in the world for a couple of quid a month? Gimme!

    Yeah FTL is way more skill-based. I'm still shit at it but a lot of people can consistently beat it on normal so will look forward to the challenge of hard.

    Unlocking the other ships however is more random, though you can do things to help improve your chances.
