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.

Last Temple HD by GameLab is a line-drawing and matching puzzle game where you use your finger to draw lines of corresponding gem pieces and clear them by letting go of your finger. The gem pieces are located on tile-based levels and they consist of shapes like leaves and flowers. If you ever played ‘Bejeweled’ or enjoy match-3 games you should find a lot to like about this title. It takes that formula and mixes it in with more gameplay variation like the game’s combo system and exploding tiles for example. Unlike those genres, where you either shift gems or tiles to get them to line up or in games where you tap gems one-by-one — in Last Temple HD, you line draw long sections of them and can change directions or pathways depending on where the matching gems are.
