I was sooooo close to beating the game on Normal. The boss ship had hardly any hull left on the 3rd fight but in the end it just pummeled me with lasers and missiles.
I had won the previous two boss fights pretty easily with my full power shield, epic evasion capability and serious firepower. Also all my key crew members were fully leveled up in their skills. However 4 of my crew got wiped out so I only had 3 people left to run around and put out fires and repair things, which meant my mega ship wasn’t fully operational.
I also had the following Augmentations:
- Long Range Scanners (helped me pick a decent path though the sectors)
- Automated Re-loader (made my weaponry even more deadly)
- Advanced FTL Navigation (I used this on the final level to get to a repair base before the 3rd fight)
Well my adrenaline was high on that last fight I can tell you. I really thought I was going to make it, but then it all fell apart. Gah! So disappointing.
Anyway, if it isn’t already clear, I 100% recommend this game. It’s brilliant but super-addictive so watch out!
