What do you think of our trailer and icon?

Hey guys,

We are about to submit our first game to Apple and I would like to get some feedback on the trailer and icon of our app.

Our game is called TimberSlide and is a puzzle game along the lines of the oldie Pipe Mania, with a few twists in the game mechanics.

So, what do you guys think?

Hey, your Icon doesn't convey that its a puzzle game. Since your game is called TimberSlide and your icon is literally just that, you are saying the same thing twice. You should try to make an icon that can either be mysterious or a taste of what the game is about. Currently from first impressions, you read the title and see the icon and it feels very stale.

Trailer looks nice though, love the flowing water. Looks like an enjoyable relaxing game.

Trailer does not look very professional. Icon is good.

You need to get in touch with App reviewers on YouTube and ask them to make a video of your App to showcase it to potential users in a more intuitive way.

In the trailer it kinda feels like you spend to much time in the games menu. And you could perhaps show all of the games seasons in order to get some more diversety into the trailer
The music fits the trailer really well and as previously stated the game looks really relaxing, could you perhaps capitalize on this and try to convey this even more? Dont know just a thought.
The icon could perhaps be more attention grabbing? Right know it kinda says nothing.
