    I try to buy the game just now (US$0.99!) but it says it is being modified...is the sale ending?

    Edit: ah, ended, anyway, I am buying.

    Agh. Lol! I thought I had tried that at some point. Cool. I agree with you about actual turn order in battle, it would slow things down—I didn't mean that and wouldn't want it with this setup.

    Having more relics and being able to choose weapons—and accordingly balance their strengths and weaknesses, would be great. I notice some abilities are really rare to show up, like being able to use a heavy weapon every turn. That one might be better saved for a relic too...better to have a few basic abilities that lend characters to certain roles, and then save the rest for relics. I'm not really interested in playing brutal until then...I havent beaten all the fugitives on normal yet; I have lost incentive until I get more strategy options and rewards. I'll wait a few weeks ;)

    With all these updates done so far and more to come it would also be great to get a 5 star review on the app store ;)

    Version 2.0 is now published on the app store with the following changes :

    * Bounty hunters can now use a turn to change level grid position. Each grid position has tactical advantages and disadvantages.
    * The heavy projectile weapon flamethrower now has a chance to add gas effect to enemies.
    * Increased character melee attack movement speed.
    * Fixed a bug where high difficulty enemies could sometimes use the defense mode action more then twice in a row.
    * Added additional weapon information to the base help screens.
    * Fixed a few typos.

    I deleted this.
    I didn't like how my bounty hunters missed two out of three shots. I didn't like how I bought three health boosters and they all disappeared in one use.
    This could have been good - music and graphics were sweet - another missed opportunity...

    Haven't you ever played a game where your character starts as a fairly weak noob?

    You level up after each mission. Increase your speed which makes you more accurate—just focus on speed the first couple levels, then improve speed and agility.

    Not sure about the boosters, do you mean a medi kit or the enhancements?

    There is no code preventing bounty hunters missing. It is all to do with percentage chances and odds.
    So your bounty hunters could get lucky and hit enemies 20 times in a row but the odds for it are not good.

    As your bounty hunters level-up and upgrade their speed attribute their odds to successfully attacks enemies is improved.

    That is what makes the combat interesting and varied. If your bounty hunters constantly successfully attacked the enemies it would make the game very boring and predictable.

    That being said I do have code in place to make sure that bounty hunters (as a team) never miss / are blocked more then twice in a row. I do not want players getting too frustrated.

    Regarding the health boosters. Do you mean the medical equipment? Can you describe the issue you had in more detail?

    My game is currently bugged. It keeps on loading on the last fugitive i played and it loads all the way to stage 3 as well, once i try tapping anything on the screen the app just shuts down.

    Edit: i tried making a new save file and its playable so far but my first save file is still completely unplayable.

    You can download iexplorer...it will let you browse your phone's contents; find the app and open the folder, there should be some data somewhere in there.

    From there just select and copy the files...let him know which save file is corrupted–1, 2, or 3.

    Nice little game.
    But once you've purchased 4 bounty hunters and upgraded them, what is the use of buying a more expensive not upgraded bounty hunter? Do you get a refund if you fire one?

    You do not get a refund for firing a bounty hunter but can you can recruit them again later at the same price even if they are upgraded a lot.

    So you can recruit 4 bounty hunters then upgrade and fire them. Then you can recruit and upgrade some new bounty hunters.

    This way if a bounty hunter is killed you have a reserve of upgraded bounty hunters available.

    Oh great, thanks bud. I'll try to get on this when i'm not too busy. But since theres an update coming up i might just wait for it since the dev might have already found a fix for it.
