Which iOS Game Has Your Favorite Icon?

Been looking at some of my game icons and some look pretty low res, and some are really just a mess, but there are a few that really stand out among the rest, even if it is for a bad game.

Which ones are your favorite app icons?

Cool Pizza - Smiling, severed hands get me everytime.

Impossible Road - Distills the feeling of the game into its icon

Hundreds - if they want minimal, Apple should hire this guy

Hates - Every icon where the dev squeezes their logo into the corner. Are those 3mm really worth the advertising?

Sword & Sworcery: the white crescent on the background feels extremely stylish to me.

CRABITRON: everybody is tempted to open the app when they see a space crab's silly smile

Reaper - tale of a pale swordsman: I'm REALLY fond of this icon. I place it in the center of a page and look at it every now and then.

Minigore 2: Mountain Sheep changes the boss on the icon a few times, but they all looks great.

Mimpi: haven't played it, but the colors on the icon look so rich!


=>> HEY YOU! Why own an iPad if you haven't played CRABITRON? <<=

Playing: FGO, Threes!, Duet Game, Implosion, Ski Safari, Joan Mad Run, hocus, Love You To Bits, Goblin Sword, Layton Brother, Solomon's Keep, Punch Quest (Recommend them all!)
