No. They basically switched from an iAP unlock to a fully paid app. There is no more need to iAP unlock, although Apple still lists it because of historical reasons. The 4.99 (or whatever it's currently at) gets you the full game.

If you downloaded the game back when it was free (with IAP), then you now own the complete game.

Hi. Quick question I hope you can help me with. Trying to use medpack with the talent. I see White crosses and red for those with no health missing. I try to click one of the chars to heal and it just selects them...
Can you point out what I'm doing wrong?
Thx

talk of episode two already?

hunters is barely out of its infancy and the devs are already talking about a whole new hunters game? not good... more investment needs to go into hunters 1 otherwise no-one will bother with another one... it's accepted that the devs don't make money on enhancing a paid for app, but at the moment hunters seems incomplete.

I agree with what a lot have already said - it has great game mechanics and game engine, but lacks depth and content. more missions with variety - the 5 missions a day is a good idea, but there should be a campaign mode running along side it...

and here's a controversial idea... once hunters die keep them dead (with the option of buying them back - think the emperor in warhammer 40k...)

I am having the same issue. I click on the guy with the talent, his cross goes green and if I click on him again he heals. Can't get that with anyone help.

Help from the experts?

Just discovered an issue that I think should be fixed. I just played an Assassinate the Leader contract with Clear the Level as the secondary goal. The leader wasn't marked, so once I killed him, I didn't have more than the rest of the round as a chance to finish the 2nd goal. This should be changed so that either the leader is marked (it actually says at the beginning that the leader is where the circle is, but I didn't see any circle) or better yet, let me decide when the game is over. In fact, I think every game should allow you to manually decide when it's done (assuming you've met the primary goal).

i've always found the leader to be marked... and I quite like the challenge of having to kill everyone else before killing the leader...

It's possible I missed it (cuz I thought I saw in a previous mission that he was marked), but even if that's the case, the mark should be more visible/apparent.

I got it while it was still free + IAP for the full game, but I didn't think it was my kind of game. I re-downloaded it to give it another shot, and voila! Full game!
