ok so this is the icon i made for my game Party Popper! , the game is finished and all that is left is an icon and write a description, so i like to hear your opinion...

the cake and the spider are characters from the game ( there is no main character so i just picked)

    Not sure tbh, might look better without the spider?

    its a bit big to see, post it at actual icon size.
  • POMPOM Posts: 2,599Member
    cake only? its not a cooking game ;)
  • firemaplegamesfiremaplegames Posts: 3,206Member
    I agree with Darren... I would lose the spider. Spiders crawling all over food is a pretty big turn off.

    I would enlarge the cake, and make the oranges behind it more vibrant. Some more yellows to make it 'pop'.

    by the way, the spider (and all other characters in the game) is an animal balloon..

    Try some other characters and post them for feedback. I think the idea of animal balloons for an icon could be very cool. The black spider just doesn't look like a balloon at icon size.

    i actually thought it was nice, but i listen to the pro's (you guys) and try to make a new one..
    nothing beats experience

    p.s
    what do you think about the logo POM ?
    (my profile pic) it will be the second splash screen
    right after GS.

    @p-o-m, I like your logo a lot. The icon though, I think you need to re-do the whole thing, just doesn't look good enough, and it's a bit confusing

    Could you post some info about the game or some screenshots?
    Right now I'm only judging it on it's appearance, but I need to see or hear the concept of the game to see if an icon like that would fit the game.

    @artonskyblue thank you for trying to help..

    (sorry for my english in advanced)

    here are some screenshots of the gameplay :

    here you see long balloons, they come in different shapes and to pop a balloon you need to
    slide your finger across it, from edge to edge.
    you also see the punching box at the right top, its a timer for popping a balloon, the player have 5 seconds to pop ANY balloon otherwise the puncher will punch your score and you loose 1 life (lives left are the sparklers at the top left - you start with 3)
    image

    there are also motion balloons - shake flip and tilt - each with a unique shape and to pop them you need to perform the SHAKE/FLIP/TILT .
    *******************************************************************

    here you can see the cake which is falling from the top of the screen and if the player touches it, he loses 1 life (one sparkle is flying) , the red line is blinking twice 1 sec before the cake is falling, and at the position of the fall , like a warning sign.
    image

    *********************************************************
    there are 7 boss modes- here are some screenshots of them:

    basically its a non stop action game with slides all over the screen, shake, flip and tilt, and crazy boss modes ,

    so where were we?!?! oh right..... THE ICON ISSUE.... ;)

    The dog - use the balloon dog for your icon!

    QS :D

    I would have to agree with quantum. Use the balloon dog from the second to last screenshot, along with the background in that screenshot - including the streamers and stuff floating around in the background. I know it's a tight fit, but I'd try fitting in a shooting sparkler or two. :)

    Good luck, and the game looks awesome by the way!
  • quantumsheepquantumsheep Posts: 8,188Member
    Yep - you can try and make the dog's body a little shorter so that overall it's more 'square' and will fit on the icon better! ;)

    Absolutely, and the color contrast with the balloon dog in red, and the blue background looks really good.

    I would do that as an icon :)
  • POMPOM Posts: 2,599Member
    ok ill give it a try... thanks @butterbean , @evopanop and @QS .

    by the way, after seeing some screenshots and gameplay, your opinion of the original icon has changed?
  • VoidedSkyVoidedSky Posts: 1,095Member
    I think that you should use one of the ballon animals from the game for the icon.
  • POMPOM Posts: 2,599Member
    hey guys , i know the community is freaking out for the updates , but still we need to continue working on our projects. so if you can please post your opinion about this..
