    Hi,

    This is my concept. Very simple, made of some screenshots published in the web.
    Although, I can't provide You nor PSD, nor higher resolution of this picture. I have no possiblity to do it because of lack of skills and applications.

    When you say "Only unique, original creations can participate in competition", does that mean we can't use images from your game either?

    You guys do realize that the 512x512 version is mandatory, right? They need a large copy for the App Store.

    Here it is:
    make sure you click on it to enlarge it.
    I will probably edit it to make it a bit more polished if they decide to use it.

    EDIT: Is it showingh up for you guys? For me it wont.

    You need to host it on an image site, we can't see things on your computer unless you upload it to the internet.
