FTL is one of those special Indie games I might play off and on for the rest of my life. It's rogue-like space fairing gameplay is so unique and fresh every time I come back I am hooked by it. Recently i've been playing a couple games and slowly building back my ability with it. Like any skilled game that you step away from, i've had to remember a few things forgotten over time. During my last play session I made it to the Federation Starship boss to beat it once and then lost the second time. I forget how punishing that battle can be and how nimble and at times lucky you need to be to complete it.

During these last few games i've played as the Federation Cruiser, a ship I usually don't play. I've found the Kestrel to be a great ship and to date, haven't had the desire to try anything else. The Federation Cruiser is a good ship and it's special Artillery Beam weapon is surprisingly good. I upgraded it a few times but plan on upgrading it fully when I play with it again.

I have finally unlocked the Stealth Cruiser which I am going to try in my next game. If anyone has any tips for using it let me know. It seems smaller than most ships but it starts with a cloaking device, which I try and get during each of game I play. One downside is it has no shields, which I am not sure how that will work out so any advice here would be appreciated.

FTL is such a great game, because it's so replayable. I've unlocked almost nothing in the game, and I still enjoy it each time I play.

I probably should look up how to unlock the various ships in the game :)

I unlocked the Engi ship, I think, the first time I saw one. So you should have that one at least. I haven't used it a lot but it's kind of fun with the slow heal.

That might be the one I've unlocked :)

I need to play it more but I have a pretty strong Kestrel bias.
