    HUNTERS: Episode One
    By the end of the 21st century, the human population on Earth was estimated to be over 500 billion. Governments strained and buckled under the masses. As humankind looked to their leaders for salvation, the world’s corporations looked to the stars. Within 20 years, humans had settled on their closest neighbour, Mars.
    The year is 2981. As the third millennium nears its end, mankind has spread through the galaxy like wildfire. Planets are not ruled by governments, but bought by corporations. The ink on a contract is thicker than blood. Money is everything.
    Groups of mercenaries and hired guns travel through space taking on the dangerous and illegal jobs that corporations deny and cover up.
    They are called Hunters.

    All the little things that make a good game great are present here. Great graphics, decent sound effects, deep (yet quick) gameplay, new content in the form of missions and equipment available all the time, leveling up and customization for your entire team.

    It plays well on the iPhone and iPod Touch with a great control system, but run this game on an iPad, particularly on the iPad 2 as we were, and it works perfectly. Hunters: Episode One is a tense, thrilling game that brings the classic turn based strategy genre on to iOS with amazing success.

    Hunters: Episode One delivers a solid gameplay, lots of armors and weapons, a huge number of missions (new ones come every twelve hours) and some nice detailed graphics. If you like turn based strategy games, don't miss this one.

    Provides a solid grounding for what could be an insanely addictive tactical turn-based title, but bugs and the lack of story missions are holding it back for now.

    These are the kinds of titles that can set the platform apart as one of the truly unique experiences in gaming. It is definitely well worth a look, especially when you consider that the base game is actually free.

    If you like it, and can live without a linear level structure you have almost unlimited game life ahead of you. If you on the other hand want a clear goal with the game you owe it to yourself to at least play the free portion to sample this new exciting game developer.

    Despite an odd mission structure, Hunters: Episode One succeeds with solid, in-depth turn-based tactical gameplay.
