    I think you should put more detail, especially in the lettering. It's a bit simple at the moment, and it's not going to work in all sorts of backgrounds.
    As a graphic designer, I'll give you basic advice :

    1. check what others are doing (check logos from gaming companies, fellow indie game developers and such)
    2. You shouldn't use numbers and such as you do in your logo, it gives an "non-pro" look to it ;)
    3. Try different fonts, check free font sites, check google!
    4. Finally, after choosing the font and such, try different colours of backgrounds vs different font colours.

    I guess this is a start for you, since you have a all type logo!
    Hope this helps!

    Hi RealGame: my opinion (and please take it as constructive criticism):

    It reads as G4 meboy (Or even G4 me boy) I know it's meant to be Gameboy games but the substitution of the "A" with a 4 doesn't work for me. I then was puzzling over the "O" and thought that might be a zero. Is there some significance to the 40? If not, I can't see the point of it, changing letters to numbers just for the sake of it, and even if there is a reason it's making the word confusing to read. Sorry, but you did ask for an opinion!

    Yup! What gyroscope and alimpo83 said . . .

    I read it as G4 . . . . . . mebOy . . .

    Also "Gameboy games" is a moniker literally begging for a lawsuit, you need to hope you never have a sizeable success, if you do expect to lose the rights to the name.

    "Game Boy is acceptable" [NOTICE THE SPACE]

    'Game boy' (Nintendo's trademarked game business) has a space in it's title, so 'Game Boy' will certainly see you in court. Don't expect to start trading with the name 'Game Boy' and not hear from the (Nintendo) 'Game Boy' legal team at some point, like I say your best hope is that your games largely fail to make an impact, personally I would avoid trading around or close to a well established games trade mark.

    Even if you remove the space I doubt you could legitimately trade on the name.

    This looks like a lawsuit waiting to happen... Also, when it comes to a company name, think outside of the box! G4meb0y is not a memorable name, it's hard to read and at a first glance it looks like random numbers and letters jumbled together.

    "I think "game boy" could cause a lawsuit, but "game boy" could be general term."

    It's a registered trade mark, the owners of the trademark will sue you if you start to produce, promote and sell games under that name.

    Suggestion:

    Come up with a new company name.

    -Cyvi Games/etzer
