Time count down graphic suggestion .. Help

POMPOM Posts: 2,599Member
i need help guys. I finished almost all the graphics for my upcoming game. But I'm missing a very important design idea for the time count down. Well let me explain. This timer is at the top right corner of the screen and it counts 5 4 3 .. 2.. 1.. And you need to perform a specific action within that time frame. It always visible through out the game so it has to be unique..
The concept of the game is "party" with balloons fireworks.. Cakes .. Candles .. Presents etc.. So basically I need an idea for a graphical count down. The current one is a balloon that looses it's air in 5 sec so the player have to finish the task before it totally out of air.. I don't like this one. I want a different one and I'm loosing my mind thinking for vain.. Please suggest an idea for a count down..... ;/

    how about 5 birthday candles and one gets blown out every second? or a cake with the candles on and a similar thing happens.

    cake being eaten (bites taken), pile of presents getting fewer, a clutch of balloons popping one by one, fuse burning on firework...times up rocket shoots off, big glass of fizzy drink/soda/shake slowly emptying, row of party poppers going off one by one.....

    Or 5 numbered balloons on the top right and for each second one takes off up in the air, or a big cake up there and for every second a big breasted girl pops out of it with the seconds tattooed on her bikini top (well depending on the rating of course), or a strobe light that spins and from 5 to 1 appears on it as a count down, or maybe a jumping castle with a kid on it and every time he jumps its one second :)
