Opinion on Design

I would make the title screen buttons a bit larger and maybe reduce the glow a bit.

But other than that it looks pretty good.

Another Design

This is another designs. Tell me which one do you like ? There are 2 pictures that almost identical. The differences are: the picture on the left has a title under the shadow, the picture on the right no shadow and title is bigger.

My favorite is the 2nd screenshot. Good color choice (imho). I wouldn't put the title behind shadows and I don't like the distracting red "Get full version" on top of the screen.

Cool, man! : ) Here are my favorites:

- 1st one's layout:
. tic tac toe board under the title strip
. the buttons don't stay over the red line
. less blue pieces under the buttons

- 3rd one's background
. it makes the round elements part of the app indentity

- 3rd one's title color
. I like the stronger colors, but I miss the difference between "battle" and "tic tac toe" of the other titles

I'll go off on a different tangent; the thin serif font on the Play, Options, etc, buttons seems really out of place with the rest of the large, bold, sans-serif fonts in the title. Tbh, it looks like a generic button package just tacked on at the last minute.

I would also play with the positioning of those 4 buttons.. I'd probably look at putting them so that the bottom button is in the bottom right of the screen to center the overall interface. At the moment all of your content is in the top half of the screen and there is a lot of empty space. It looks like you're designing the interface with the intention to put a banner ad across the bottom, is that the case?
