    Idk, the video doesn't look too bad, and it's an interesting concept.

    Cel-shading to be precise. It's only .99. I don't want to load my iPotch with crap though.

    Thanks for TOFFT'ing. So you may not have enjoyed it, but wasn't it worth buying it to save the trouble for others? You're a hero. Enjoy it while it lasts.

    Kex developer here

    Hello, I am the creator of Kex. korymatthew, I am sorry that Kex was a bad experience for you. But I do appreciate your comments :) Good or bad, I welcome all feedback. Maybe you can provide a bit more specific information of what turned you off, perhaps through PM or to this thread.

    Kex was recently reviewed on iphoneappreviews.net where the reception was notably better. The author mentioned some issues he had with the controls. When I designed Kex, my emphasis was on a intuitive interface making use of swipe gestures to "toss" Kex left and right, or up to avoid missiles. However, the author pointed out some mechanics with the control scheme that can and will see some improvements. The reviewer also filled in the missing backstory for the character in a comically superb fashion :)

    I wouldn't want Kex to be so quickly dismissed, so I'm providing a number of promo codes so that people can give the game another chance. I would appreciate any (good or bad) feedback, but you are certainly not obligated to do so. But I ask that you use the code only if you intend to give Kex a shot.

    Thank you,

    Thanks for the welcome DHrox, hello all.

    Wow, this is a very fast moving forum. Hard to keep up.

    I made reference to a review of Kex on iphoneappreviews previously, and thought I'd add a link to it for reference.

    This is actually a slower moving thread.

    Hey, welcome to the forums, bought the game when it first came out, love the graphics, decent gameplay, just not really one of those must haves, sadly i deleted it, but it lasted a fair while (which is good, some apps i delete immediately ;))

    Grabbed 6J7WRPA4WK9E.

    Revised this after a lengthy time playing.
    Please keep in mind I'am only a simple/humble but valued game player.

    Good:
    The game got very busy after only a minutes or less of playing. Started to get combo's and more missiles started coming forth and control movements were satisfactory although could use a slight tweaking. I was beginning to like this game because it becomes challenging very quickly after realizing that missiles shot from below and then other different types/colors missiles too. Got to be fun dodging the missiles by zig zagging through them. The sound of the tower creaking makes me wonder if its turning while superhero is running too? But regardless, it fits within the game as well. Need to play some more to progress into the game to see what else transpires.

    Not so Good:
    Didn't like the double tapping to fire and delayed my aiming/target somewhat. Difficult to see some missiles coming at me (superhero) when directly in front and I needed to swipe a couple times to jump. I seen the tower rising up but hadn't progressed at this point in the game play but sure other players will post comment on it. The missiles (as we've been calling them) by the way sound more like a cap/pop gun sound but not sure if more realistic or different sounding ones would be appropriate for this type of game setting.
    Not a bad game overall and I believe you did a good job with it.
     
  19. I got AWJL94AHJY36. Looks interesting -- definitely worth a look, possibly a review as well. I'll wait 'til I play it before committing to it though. :)

    Eng: I'm very happy to hear that :) I've been a long time dabbler in game development, but Kex is the first game I've completed. To know that someone got some enjoyment from it puts a smile on my face.

    Wegmans: Sent you a PM

    Promo code takers: Don't feel obligated to post your opinions so fast. I would prefer that you experienced the game at your own pace instead. If and when you do leave feedback, I'll be happy to hear it.
