Can you suggest a better name?

Hi everyone,

I have just gotten feedback on my new game title, Monster Breakout:

The feedback was as follows: Sounds like a classic "Breakout" game (which it is far from a "breakout" game) its an escape game.
And the logo with the OUT looks strange.

Any name suggestions would be great!

This is the first few lines of the descriptions:
"Warning! Little Monster has been kidnapped...and is being dragged back to Dr Evil's lab. There's only one thing to do...escape! Help the cheeky little monster dodge past the evil robot guards, navigate the challenging levels, collect the golden stars, and get the heck out of there!"

Ive posted here as want some feedback from developers

How about using the word "creep"?

The different meanings make it fun to use... creeping and creepy, for example.
And both creepy and creeping would be appropriate. I also wouldn't use "monster" in the first place, I would leave the game's title open for suggestions, something like:

"Creeping Horror".

Different meanings, but all would fit the game.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Ok thanks for your suggestions! I have written them all down.
One new one I came up with was:
Sneaky Monster

As it gives the impression of Sneaking and having to dodge past the guards.
What do you think?

Maybe add "Little" in there, like "why you sneaky little monster".

Good idea.

'Sneaky Little Monster' sounds much better.

Sneaky Little Monster is ideal if your going for cute graphics.

My two cents.
  • Dr Evil's Lab
  • Escape the Lab
  • Sneaky Sneaky Monster
  • Critter's Great Escape

Off topic...

Dr. Evil is the name of the villain in the Austin Powers movies. You might want to go with a different name.

"Get the the heck out of there!"

Monster Mayhem (nvm I think that's already a game) maybe Monster Move(s)

Monster makes his move/ breakout "a monster story"

Or give the monster a name and do something with that...
