The goal of the game Faster Than Light or short FTL is to protect your base and your spaceship. In the beginning, the players choose a spacecraft and its crew. There are several possibilities to create the team because there are different races within the game. All of them have special abilities and strengths, but also weaknesses and skills that they do not master so well. When the crew is ready for action, players start at the beginning of a sector map, with each sector being a potential point of approach. The players decide where to go, but caution is advised here. Each area triggers a random event, which can be either good or bad. When the players have reached the end of the sector, they move on to the next section. There they can choose which galaxy they want to go to next. Here there are also hostile galaxies, but with rarer treasures, or neutral to more action-friendly galaxies. On their way through the sectors, the players encounter numerous other spaceships, some of which offer their help, some of which need help and some of which want to rob the players. However, players are never forced to destroy other spaceships. There is always the possibility to let them go and spare them. Towards the end of the game, the primary defense against the main rebel ship is set. If this is destroyed, the game is won. Faster Than Light offers a short but very entertaining and exciting game fun, which surprises again and again. Due to the many possible decisions, each game round is unique. However, there is no voice output in this game, and the text language is exclusively in English, so excellent English skills are necessary to understand the game properly.
