Help me decide my icon please.

(Edit)I've added two new icons I've drawn to the bottom. I'm hoping to go with one of these two. (The squid or the spooky door). No voting needed. Just let me know which you prefer. Thanks!

Howdy folks.

So we're days away from submitting our fantasy adventure game CastleAbra

Taking an idea from SpaceHat's thread (I voted for 2 BTW) I've decided to ask you knowledgeable ladies and gents for advice on our icon choice.

Please vote and give me any criticisms and ideas you have. I'm open to reworking any of the icons or just creating a new one altogether.

Thanks for your time!

I like 3 a lot. It makes me curious and if I saw it I would think it is a game I might be interested in.

I'd go with 3 out of those choices, but honestly they are all a bit too busy. An inviting icon is simple and clean, in my opinion..

Very nice artwork but all way too busy for an icon. If I had to pick one of those, number 1, but you really need something that will look better thumbnail sized.

It's too late.

Look like a part of screenshot than a game icon. Pick option 1 too, if there have no any for choice

Thanks for all the replies. It seems like the consensus among everybody I've asked is that these just aren't that great. It's my fault for just using in game assets instead of designing something from scratch.

I'm going back to the drawing board and I'll create some new icons.

Thanks guys.

Well, I went and made two new icons. I'd really love to hear any thoughts on these. Thanks for looking

I still like 3 better than either of those.

The art is really cool though!

Please follow me on twitter @JamesDestined I post lots of development from both my game creation and professional development.
