Get level 2 shields ASAP
Upgrade your engines too, by the end of the game you should have them almost maxed out. Your shields should be at least level 3, if not 4, at the end of the game.
Think of your ship's hit points as a resource, not something that must be maxed out constantly. You're better off letting your ship remain damaged for a while so that you can save up to buy shields that will keep you from taking any more damage at all. If you keep repairing over and over, you'll delay your shield upgrade. If you let your ship limp along and then get shields, you'll stop taking damage. In fact, never repair your ship above 20 hp until the end of the game. The reason is because there are random events that might repair up to 10 hp for free.
Upgrade your doors and vent the rooms to space when you get boarded. Let oxygen deprivation do most of the defensive work. Alternatively, rush your shield operator (or weapon operator) to the door control room for a temporary free upgrade to the doors when you get boarded.
If your ship catches fire, vent the room to space to put it out.
If your weapons don't fire at the same rate, then let all of them charge to full and manually fire them.
In early sectors, target enemy weapons. Doesn't matter if their shields keep regenerating and it takes forever to kill them if they can't fight back. In later sectors, you may need to change your strategy for faster takedowns as they'll have more weapons than you can disable.
If you can kill the crew instead of blow up the ship, you get more scrap rewards! This makes fire weapons amazing. An ion cannon to disable shields and a fire beam weapon to light multiple rooms on fire is an awesome combo! The fire will damage the equipment in the room, and they can't repair the equipment until they put out the fire!
If you have multiple ion guns, put one on the O2 room and one on the weapons. The weapons can't fire at you and the crew will die from asphyxiation!
If you can get a teleporter, two rockmen, and a fire weapon you're unstoppable! The rockmen are immune to fire, so light up the enemy ship. The enemy will try to put out the fire, then teleport your rockmen on top of the enemy. The fire will help you kill the enemies, until they flee from the inferno. Then the rockmen and the fire can take out the room. The fire will spread to the next room, then just have your rockmen walk into that room.

This game is a blast! You're right, it is quite difficult, but when you get in the swing of things it's a lot of fun!

I've owned this game for 2+ years and have yet to win once. Great game but impossibly difficult.

Hi. Apple disabled the ability to purchase apps from Itunes some time ago. You my try to do an Itunes downgrade (filehippo.com may have the old setup file) and try purchasing it. Don't know if it will work. I believe Itunes 12.6.3 was the last Itunes to support purchasing Apps.

Can I buy iPad apps without an iPad or iOS device? I'm planning on buying an iPad when a sale hits, and this would be nice to have when I get one.

I think so. Apps are attached to your account, not your device

Is this a new price or a sale? It wasn't marked as sale, but I don't remember if app store actually mark those.

I tried buying it through iTunes and it won't let me. Tried going direct link and it wont let me. I can't even manage to buy the app on my iphone because it's not iphone compatible. Sometimes Apple pisses me off. It's like Apple has to make all the decisions for you. I am too lazy to dig up my ipad to purchase it through my ipad. What a dilemma.

Buy 4 bars (2 levels) of shields ASAP - that should get you through the first 3 systems mostly without taking damage on easy, which will let you save up scrap.

Ha same. I was so happy when I defeated the boss ship, but then it regained its HP and turned invisible and I was like "oh hell no"
