Renaming our Game

We need some suggestions and help in renaming our app!

We launched our first App, Homemade Shooter at the end of March with very minor results.

In the time that has lapsed we have applied a very heavy layer of polish on our game to bring it up to a higher level of quality that we are satisfied with. This has also included a push on the games theme to greater highlight the "stop the bullies" angle. We are aiming to relaunch with a major update to the game that will include a new title!

Polish upgrade example:
OLD TITLE SCREEN:


NEW TITLE SCREEN:



The objective of the game is to shoot bullies with your homemade weapons in order to protect a kindergarten's lemonade stand as the bullies try to steal from it.

So we want to rename the title "Homemade Shooter" to something that describes the game more directly and plays up the "stop the bullies angle".

Currently the best I have is "Bully Shooter" but that seems a bit to bland!

We are launching our update in two weeks.

Thanks!

another 2 im looking at are:

- Schoolyard Vigilante

or

- Slingshot Vigilante


the playable character is a 'vigilante of sorts' but that isn't really conveyed in the game, it just how you would describe him if asked.

oh, if what I'm going to play is a vigilante, then the second name you mentioned is better imo.

I like the sounds of these names, but kids may have trouble spelling vigilante, which could impact your sales.
