Somersault sounds best, Adding the super makes it look like a little kids game. Super juggle land sounds pretty stupid to me...

Current Favorite: GT Racing, Tilt To Live, Soccer Superstars
Tested: Lunarcy, ZvA '12, KungFu World, CastleCraft, Flight Deck, Hybrid, Boom it Up!, VANQUISH, Zenonia2, Soccer Superstars, Caligo Chaser, IMO, Inotia 2

Hiya: M opinion

Hey, personally I love my game titles nice and simple, preferrably one word. Not that I won't play a game because of it's title, but I just prefer the name simpel and cool.

So personally, I'd go with the first name.

Hope it helps,

I'll be the dissenting vote so far and say Super Somersault, as it has a nice ring of alliteration that follows the Rule of Three, which helps make it memorable.

Mind you, if you plan on making a sequel, it might be best to save the use of "Super" as the identifying superlative for the second installment. Or you could always call that one Super Somersault Extreme or something.

Juggle Land is a little awkward.
