The Hunter Instructions

The Hunter, which is obviously a hunting game (doh!), has a control scheme that's like any other game within the genre. This game is played entirely with a mouse. If you know how to point and click, you are good to go: (1) aim for your target by moving the mouse, and (2) press the left click button to fire at your target. Along with that, the mouse is also needed for investing. I'll explain that later. Anyway, place your mouse's cursor in the 'Invest' box and write the amount you want to invest. That's about everything you need to learn about the controls. Now, let's have a closer look at the game...

The Hunter Walkthrough

Imagine this: a horde... or better yet a plague of unidentified parrots are wreaking the Fission City. With these parrots creating havoc and chaos by growing in numbers rapidly and reaching a population that is enough to cover the whole land, it's no wonder why the citizens are alarmed. For those of you who read Percy Jackson's second book, the scene should be quite familiar. Evil looking birds on top of branches and electric wires - almost bending them all the way down to the ground with their weight. Who wouldn't be terrified with that?! Perhaps these parrots aren't as sinister as the one's in the said novel. They may not surge down and peck off every bit of flesh they set their sights on. BUT in any case, parrots occupying territories that are meant for humans isn't a good thing. Can you control the plague?

Well, there is only one way to find out: play this hunting game - The Hunter! The objective of the game is as straightforward and easy to understand: the parrots are causing trouble, so you need to shoot down every parrot in sight. And as an incentive, you get to earn 5 dollars for every parrot you take out. Man, if I could find a job like that, I'd be a happy worker. Anyway, you can also interact with the environment by shooting down lamps, protected species, or just about anything you see. BUT mind you, you would have to pay a fine price for shooting down things you are not supposed to and break stuff. Heck! If you shoot down people, that could even take you to an alternate ending. And while you can bail out and continue where you left off by forking out top dollar, why would you want to do that? Those Benjamins could mean your early retirement if you just went about your mission as careful as you could!

Going back to the parrots, in every level, you need to earn more than 50 dollars. That means you should take out more than 10 parrots. It doesn't sound much and in the earlier stages, you shouldn't have any trouble doing that. HOWEVER, the parrots will fly quicker and will change directions faster later on in the game. YES, you have to work twice as hard for the 50 bucks. So keep those eyes on the parrots.

When you start off, you are given 200 dollars and 20 bullets. That's not a lot so you need to make the ends meet and make something out of your limited resources. And that brings me to INVESTING. Yeah, I know that sounds odd for a hunting game, BUT apparently, The Hunter isn't just about taking out targets and making money out of them. A good portion of it is about using the money to good use and making it work for you. You can try to 'grow' your money through 3 ventures: (1) Invest it in a bank. The interest is low. It's nothing to write home about BUT it's certain. (2) If you are the type of investor who wants to flirt with risk, you can play in the casino where you get to go home either empty handed or have twice as much as you did. (3) And last BUT not the least, there's the Stock Exchange. This could be your key to instant riches. However, if things don't pan out the way you want it, you'd be dead broke!
