indie developer need your help on the art direction

hey there,

thank you very much for opening and reading my thread.
we are TapMad, a small studio located in UK and we would like to make great games that make you tap your screen as you are mad. LOL.
back to the topic, we are developing an action based game. so far, we have fixed the gameplay and level design and started working on the visual part. our concept artist just made out 1st BG. we are not so sure if it is attractive to male players(we are quite confident that girls will like it ).
you are our potential user, and we believe it is better decided by you guys. please use the poll i attached here. if you could also give us your suggestions, we will really appreciate.

THE background concept is as follows:



almost forget to say:
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year~!
cheers,
David
TapMad

I really don't care what the are style looks like to me. If its fun and creative I'll most likely pick it up. Although the art style does look VERY NICE. Maybe just change a few of the colors like make the pink rocket a dark red color. Other than that, I'll buy it.

ummmm, interesting perspective...
i will add it into my checklist. not everyone is caring about art.
and i guess it could explain why titles like Canabalt could be so successful. because its core value speaks for itself.

I like the art style so far, but I'd like to see more characters.

I like what I see so far. Not entirely original, but a nice look. Bright pastel colors, cheerful objects. Hopefully it isn't one of those looks good in screenshots but terrible in motion games.

For most people, if a game is fun, and the gameplay is something they're interested in, they will buy at the right price. This means a lite version will help, and beta testing.

Is the object to fly the ship and collect the flowers? That's what I got from the pic lol

I'd beta test for this, looks interesting enough

Any more details? Story, characters, controls, for which device, etc.
