Which Icon should we go with? Need your opinions :)

Hi everyone,

My partner and I know the importance of the icon when it comes to whether you decide to even find out more about an app. We've developed our game, "Cannon Cat", which is an action-type casual game. You can go to our website to see what the game is like www.cannoncat.com.

Here are the icons we're choosing between. Please tell us which ones you like the most or rank them in the order of best to worst. And please think beyond just which one "looks" the best, but also which would get you to click and find out more. We really appreciate any feedback you guys can provide.

Thanks!
-David

EDIT: Based on the feedback, we decided to polish up icon (B) and here is the final product!



Thanks everyone for their awesome feedback! Don and I really appreciate it

I like C, not sure why, but it just seems much better filled in.

sorry injuwarrior,

I posted up the wrong URL. Can you take a look again at the icons and let me know which one you like again?

I like B - it has the most "action" IMO

Since your game is about a cat, i would definitely use a cat in the icon. People are nuts about cats these days.

A and B have good energy and look the most fun.

I like A. You don't need to show the cannon since "cannon" is in the title. getting rid of it leaves more room for the cat to be bigger.
