When Subset Games announced Into the Breach last week, they also set FTL [$9.99 (HD)] on sale to celebrate the weekend of the 10th-12th. Well, for whatever reason, the sale ended a bit earlier on iPad than expected. If you were looking to get FTL at $2.99 – its cheapest price yet on mobile – you had missed out. Well, Subset Games has given you a chance at redemption, and have set the game at $2.99 again. I've played some FTL on PC, and have played some of the iPad version, but have shamefully never owned it on my account...until now. A great cosmic injustice has been rectified.
Now, if you can't get enough spaceship action with FTL, then perhaps Sid Meier's Starships [$0.99 (HD)] for a dollar might be intriguing? This strategy game by the eponymous genre legend, Firaxis, and 2K, has some connections to Civilization: Beyond Earth. It's not the most well-regarded Sid Meier game, but it's not bad. And for a dollar, if you have an iPad, it might be worth checking out as a curiousity.
