Faster than Light is a pretty awesome starship simulator, because its fun, challenging, diverse and random. There are some real difficulty spikes that lead me to believe that its a dead end and impossible to beat that specific random challenge. But that's what random is. This is one of the only games that I sank time into and it was fun doing it.
You have a limited crew and your ship has areas that get damaged, so you send the crew to repair those areas. If your engines get taken out you can't move. If your oxygen room gets taken out everyone on your ship will die. Holes get punctured in your hull that you need to fix. Fires that start which you can either have your people extinguish them OR you can open up the exterior doors of your ship and suck out all the O2, but enemies can take out your door controls where you can't open your doors without having someone manually do it.
There is a lot of strategy with this game. Do you take out your enemy's engine, shields, weapons or robotic drones first? There are random events that make new challenges. Its a wonderful game worth $10.
