Er... the first one looks ok, but that Golf club looks so random... Misplaced.

Also, the whole centerpoint seems too small and there's too much background. May be zoom in a little on the guy in the middle.

Thank you for your feedback. We are creating a new icon except this one will be less cluttered. We are probably going to keep the background the same though.

Honestly, I think both are too busy. For something to be clear and easy to read, simpler is better. The idea is to get your game across as simply as possible, not to show everything that appears in your game. Here you're trying to put too much info into the icon: 12 balls, a golf club, a bat, a tennis racket, a missile launcher and a ninja! Much of that gets lost once the icon is 57x57 - for example, shrink either of these images down to 57x57 and you lose the tennis racket and bat entirely. Can you break the idea of your game down to just the simplest 1-3 elements?

That being said, I chose #1 because at least the background is closer to a solid color and doesn't distract as much. Having two different color stripes in #2 just add more noise.

Good luck!

Thank you for the feedback. Like I said were going to trim the content down to like you said with only 1-3 items in the icon. Also any feedback guys on the game itself is also apperciated. Here is the link if you missed it. http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=125266

Personally, I like number 1, but get rid of the hockey stick!
