Great game is coming! [Designsters.com]

We want to introduce our new really funny and great game!
The object of the game is to run your lap whether it's a sprint or long distance, faster than your opponent.

You are a comic monster of your choosing which you can trick out with accessories.

We are thinking about a name for this game and have some versions we've come up with:
  1. Wooly-Wooly
  2. Nimbles
  3. Shustriki
not much Luck yet.

We'll give promo-code for everyone who can suggest good name for this game.

Story:

The game's plot centers around a mythical city, ShustroGrad , which is inhabited by good-natured, funny little monsters called Shustriki.

Shustriki are normally invisible because they appear only in the dreams of young children. Their sole purpose is to deliver good dreams to obedient children.

Every year Shustrograd stages a spectacular race to decide the fastest of all the Shustriks.

It's your mission to help your Shustrik win this difficult competition.

Train your Shustrik and lead it to victory!

Game Features:
  • Animated Graphics
  • Really cute animations and SFXs
  • 4 unique characters
  • 20 levels
  • 3 unique types of game-play - sprint, steeplechase and marathon.
  • Variable weather conditions
  • Ability to use doping (don't get caught!)


You can find some screens:










Any comments and suggestions are welcome!

Looking forward to your comments,

I like the title screen and look of the main character. A few of the screenshots seem to be broken and aren't showing up.

Just Nimble Mobs?
Mob sounds like mafia, isn't it?

Rally cute character design! Love the characters and I love the palette!

In the screenshots, the only part that really feels like it could use some more work is the "Store" page (with the sneakers and the wristbands and the necklace.) Are those placeolder art? They don't feel like they match the same cute style of the rest of the game. Plus all of the red on that page - on the items and the number 48 - are a rally similar value to the dark grey asphalt behind them, making them a bit hard to read.

As for names, 'Shustriki' may make sense to someone who already knows your game story, but to someone who hasn't played the game, it might not make any sense and thus be less inviting. What about "Monster Dash?" (or something like that?)

Anyhow, hope you don't mind the unsolicited crits. And hope you'll be showing screenshots of what the gameplay looks like at some point! I can't want to see all those great characters running... Good luck with it!

My game: MazeMage, a turn-based pixel-sprite puzzle adventure game.
TouchArcade thread here or play the old web demo. We're also looking for iOS beta testers.
