Exploded ships and frustration galore, now on the go—but only on iPad. If you've only got an iPhone, you're out of luck. You'll have to stick with the PC version.
On next Thursday, the much-hyped and much-awesome free expansion for FTL, the so-called advanced edition update, will be arriving alongside the exclusive iPad version of the game—so of course, both the home and portable versions will be on the same level (though modding will still be limited to PC.) The iPad port will also share the same price point with the PC version at $10 because, according to the developers, it is "a true equivalent to the PC in the experience it provides."
Look out for both the advanced edition update and the FTL iPad port on April 3. Until then, here are some iPad screenshots to tide you over.
