Suggestions to make StarHogs better

Hey PpL,
I always end up with no answer when I ask myself.... How can a team of devs who made ToyBot dairies triology ended up crearting / publishing starhogs ?

Look at the differences on the artwork, if you PpL really like starhogs & want it to top the charts, why not suggest things that'll make it better.

What turned me off about star hogs:
The artwork
