    HUNTERS: Episode One HD
    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.

    Far from perfect when it comes to features, but the gameplay is nearly perfect.

    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.

    A great turn based strategy title that mixes Space Hulk with Fallout Tactics. Still a bit buggy at times, but a deep and different iOS title that mixes RPG elements with strategy and delivers a great interface og nice graphics. Its free to try with IAP of the full game, so no need to stay away. Test it yourself.

    It's a good title, but its lack of innovation in anything except its content delivery keeps it from being great.

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