If you recall, I wrote a hands-on preview of an early build of Hunters: Episode One HD for the iPad and really liked the game despite a few shortcomings, mostly in the form of bugs and early-release glitches. Now, that I’ve been playing the full and current version (recent 1.03 update fixes even more bugs), I can accurately judge the title and most of the previous complaints have been addressed. I haven’t had the game freeze one time on me yet or crash totally; nor have I experienced bugs in the form of a level not being completable (even after accomplishing the min objective). In the previous built I couldn’t complete a mission where I uncovered an artifact and went to the destination point while ending the turn (it would just continue no matter how many turns I ended or where I went on the map). These glitches all seem addressed with the 1.02 build I am playing. The levels, so far, play out and end like they’re supposed to; and the game should be appealing to any strategy gamer out there.

With the recent launch and success of the iPad-exclusive newspaper, ‘The Daily,’ Apple is allowing all publishers on the App Store a subscription-based in-app purchase plan to generate revenue — Apple still takes 30% profits if the subscription is made through the app as an in-app purchase. However, if these publishers use their own services or websites, they keep all the profits with a catch.

The next time you hand over your trusted iPhone or iPad to keep the little one entertained, keep in mind that some children’s games come with in-app stores. According to a report by CBS 8, The Smurfs’ Village, a free game released last month for the iPhone, became the highest-grossing app in the App Store. How, you may ask? Well, buying a wheelbarrow of Smurfberries for $60 is a good start.
