Jeff, great game! I just downloaded the development build beta version of the game and have played around with it a little bit. So far, the game seems to be just as good as other shooters like this on the App Store. The controls are really responsive and I haven't run across any problems with the game itself. The story is okay but does give the player what they need to know to enjoy the game. Good game overall!

I would like to see more variations of enemies and weapons, and character/weapon customization features. Also, some better assortments of levels/locations instead of one or two constant maps. Other than that, pretty good as a beta build. I can't wait to see what you do next for Ekon the Cyborg! Good luck and thanks for the beta info!

I watched the game trailer, it's quite interesting, and the game music is also nice. Great work! Pity that nearly kill the boss
at last.

Truck World in development
