The top part is way too blank and blue. The upside down triangle part is okay but try to have something fit inside that(like the background by the green monster thing). Font of "Game Name" Looks bad and needs to be a more attractive font.

Not simpler I think, make it easy to recognize and impressive

Things change, roll with punches. But I know, all is gonna come together.

The "play" and "levels" buttons look way too small to me. You've got a ton of free space, why not make the most of it? You could put the text going diagonally on top of the blue bars or something, at about 2-3 times the size.

Agreed. And yea, top part sucks compared to bottom. Make it have more details or something, but just blank blue doesn't do it.

I did have some spaceships and stuff on it, but then I thought it looked too crowded.. I'll put them back on again though

Thanks for the feedback.

Yeah, you can try to put some spaceships so that it'll not look dull. In the top part, are you going to change the "Game Name" into the really name of the game? If the name is long enough, it'll be okay. But it it not, you'd better think of some ways to fill the blank there or you can put the "Play" and "Levels" in parellel with the name of the game, just personal opinions.

Yeah Game Name isn't what it is actually called haha Just trying to find ways of making the menu look simple but attractive.

Thanks, personal opinions are exactly what I wanted

I think the writing for the title needs to stand out more. Maybe bolder and a new colour?

Moving the alien up a bit more could help and maybe making him larger?

Also as already stated maybe the buttons should be a bit larger and stand out a bit more. Plus im not sure on the blue backkground.
