Reminiscent of FTL, Panthera Frontier challenges you to manage your crew to survive spaceship battles and the dangers of space, and it's out now on the App Store.

Recruiting varied skilled crewmembers, you assign them to different rooms to wield your ships weapons and repair damage; throughout your playthrough, you unlock and add new modules to your ship, growing both size and combat efficiency.

Clocking, lasers, missiles, lightning guns, and other weapons round out your options in battle, letting you craft tactics through synergy between module skills and abilities.

Panthera Frontier is available for the launch price of £4.99 /$4.99, and also includes in-app purchases to help expedite progress and unlocks. You can purchase the game on iPad and iPhone; the Android version should be out soon as well.
