Anyone want to TOFTT? It looks like the original Tron game boss battle.

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,
