Announcing: Mum's kitchen

this is our first game and has been submitted to apple.
here is the description.

Suitable for the young and the old, go into a sugar coma as you indulge in this sweet and challenging game. You can play using the tilt or touch controls. With its cute-as-a-button graphics and easy to play controls, itís the sweetest game on the iPhone. Eat as many sweets as you can (without gaining a pound!), and beware of the burn ones. You may even find yourself without a phone as your little ones enjoy Mumís Kitchen!

here are some screen shots

My 2 cents worth on marketing this (1.4 cents after Apple's take):

1) "Mum" may not be understandable to the young audience of the USA, as that's more of an Austrailian / UK term for "Mom" in the USA. Maybe it won't be a big deal, just noting the fact that the largest audience for your games has a different word for "Mum".

2) Seeing the large amount of pink in the game, I can only imagine your icon may be tinted in the same fashion. If so, that may lure in more female gamers at the expense of male gamers. I don't have any hard data to cite here, just anecdotal evidence from the 10, 14, and 16 year old boys I have here for beta testing

Looks like a nice, simple, pick-up-and-play game. Good luck to you... you're about to find out that making an app was the easy part. Getting people to buy it, that's where the hard work begins!
