LandFormer Icon - Have your say!

Hi guys:

I'm working on the icon for LandFormer and I need your help! I've got three designs (out of the many I've tried) that I like. I'd like to know which one you like the best...either that, or whether I need to go back to the drawing board and come up with something new.

Edit: Just uploaded a new icon based on everyone's feedback. Thanks!

My 3 favorite icons can be found in the bottom right of this image:

If you haven't been following the other LandFormer thread and don't know what the game's all about, you can watch this preview video:

Let me know what you think in the poll attached to the post.

Icon B! It looks exactly like the gameplay.

iCon A it's so nice and relaxing! with B it looks like a screenshot scaled down to 57x57 pixels.

I really like B. A is very nice graphically, but it looks like a weather app to me.

B also has a bit of a Farmville look which might hook in a few people to pay a bit more attention to begin actually.

A doesn't really fit into the gameplay
B looks a bit too detailed
C looks good, but the letters kinda spoil it
Mix them all together!

Thanks for all the feedback so far, everyone! It seems like Icon A is out to an early lead, but people have some concerns about whether or not it communicates the gameplay. I have the same concern. I will give it some thought and see if I can think of something.

Any feedback/suggestions you have is appreciated!

I have to lean toward B, icon A is definitely prettier, but it looks so generic and doesn't convey the gameplay. Icon B does, it looks nice and is clever with the LF integrated into the terrain. C is just plain bleah.

Hello Owen,

Well I also prefer the first one, I really like the landscape view of the mountains and hills.

The second one (B) though is good at actually showing the game play I think its too small to make out. The third one (C) seems to emphasize too much on the initial letter and nothing else (on a small note LF make me think of Line Feed ).

So for me the first one (A) is definitely more appealing to the eyes, maybe because of the proportion of the mountains vs hills tend to follow more the kind of golden ratio . A nice relaxing view and still show an elements from the game.

Can anyone think of an interesting way of combining A and B? I don't think the letters in B are actually necessary. I just like the fact that is shows the gameplay by showing the land sections.
