Default Which icon looks the best?

I put my game on FGL a few weeks ago and received a 49.99% rating for the icon so I thought maybe it could be improved. I heard in another thread that when the character looks at you it incite you to play the game so here are 3 icons could you guys tell me which one you think is the best? If you have any suggestion, feel free to propose them. Thank you.

1. 2.
3.

Second works for me

Did you think of placing the hero in the center?
Also, the ball is the same color as a background.

I also prefer the second one but I think you need to put the icon beside other competitors in the app store to see whether it stands out from them.

Not saying any of them are bad, but they aren't really different in quality to your first. If you are looking for a change I don't think any of them offer that.

Isn't it looking at the player in the second shot? That's what I thought anyways.

The second one definitely draws my attention to it, with the character looking out. Maybe try making the character bigger as when the icon is scaled down the effect is somewhat reduced and draws less attention.
