Without a doubt, FTL was one of my favorite games of 2012. It is simple, engaging, intense, and addictive. If it was on my phone…I’d never stop playing. In a way, it’s a simplified version of the game “Space Trader” that was on the old Palm OS devices. With a perfectly formulated mix of combat, art, and strategy, the game will capture and hold your attention no matter how many times you die on the “Normal” game mode (which is SO hard, not joking).

The ill-conceived boss fight breaks the established rules to deliver a frustratingly unfair challenge, but the meat of the gameplay itself is an excellent take on one of sci-fi fandom’s oldest and most beloved themes. You have to respect that accomplishment when it comes from anyone, much less a two-man studio Kickstarted into a $10 indie game.
