Faster than light

Faster Than Light (FTL) is an infuriating strategy game. It pits you as a Captain Kirk like figure, constantly rerouting power from the warp drive to power up your lasers (or vice versa). In between the space battles you choose how you want to develop your spaceship & crew and choose your way through random events.

It’s infuriating because it’s fiendishly difficult, the levels, events and items available in the shop are randomly generated so it’s different every time and most of all if you get game over you have to start again from the beginning. It’s rogue in a spaceship I guess.

I’ve been playing off and on (most off) for weeks now, and it’s took me until my 21st attempt to beat the game on easy mode.

If you try it beware of giant spiders.
