Left ones only because I think it more accurately reflects the content of the game. (that and I am not sure how I feel about the finger in the icon!)

Any estimate of when this is being released?

Left one looks like a safe bet but a bit generic too. Right one looks unique but in a weird sense. Sorry, no votes from me :P

The left ones reflect what the game is all about. You can use the set on the right if you release some kind of Pocket Frogs with ladybugs

They look nice when they're shown big like this, but I think it's also worth showing the icons at the size they will actually be displayed on your iPad or iPhone:

Come on guys... Let's have some more voting on this poll.

One more thing that I think is worth showing, and that is how the icons would look in context on the App-Store.
So here's a quick mockup with both icons on the SAME screenshot to test which one draws your eye the most the important factor being, which one draws your eye the most in context, when surrounded by other icons...

Strange. First lot is more noticable and drew me to it first but I looked for the second one and couldn't get my eyes off it 0.o

Have a look at Naruto RPG!
