    I am looking for some people to try out my game and provide me with some constructive criticism. The app can be found here: http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=301320632&mt=8

    MakeMeSay is a word party game where you split up into teams of two or more. When its your teams turn you have only a few seconds to make your team guess the words that show up for you. When your times up you pass the iPhone to the other team for their turn.

    PM me if your interested. I am looking for some constructive criticism. This is one of two apps that I have built. I am doing this all on my own, so any help is appreciated. So far I have had good review on the appstore but I would like some more feedback on what I should focus on for my next release.

    The look of it makes it seem boring even though the game does seem interesting

    Ya, that seems to be a strong theme with the criticism so far. Fun but graphics and sounds need work.

    So I will be putting some time into that new buttons and an icons soon.

    I am going to have to get someone to help me with it and didn't want to go to that trouble until I actually had the game done and people playing since the extra time and money wouldn't be worth it is the game was a complete flop. I hope to have a new version by next weekend if everything works out with the person I am in touch with.

    Absolutely. I don't think that I can think of anything constructive. It is an amazing group oriented game. I convinced the PE teacher to let us play in the auditorium, and it was great.

    This icon looks better and more "relevant" to the game. However, I suggest making the background brighter (maybe a bright red instead of the pink) and I suggest making the letters of the game name clearer and more defined. They are difficult to read now (especially the word Make) and will be even harder when the icon is viewed in a smaller size on the iPhone's springboard.

    Have Arron @ Razorianfly do it for a nominal fee. He does some great ones, and may be able to help you on this one. He should be able to do something with it.

    The outline of the clock looks a little blurry to me. I don't know if that's how it looks on the iPhone, but it looks like it on my computer. Also, I enjoy the red more because it is my favorite color, but more people would probably enjoy the blue and grey because it stands out a little less and it isn't as "obnoxious" on the screen, I guess you could say. The icon looks good though beside the clock thing (which may just be my eyes as well)

    the icon, just blegh, no. I like how it's stylized, but try using better colors. nothing really goes well with gray. try making the clock gold, with the background being royal blue. also, don't include the title in the icon. it's redundant and kinda annoying, the title's already below the icon.

    i agree with basically everything he said...maybe instead of the title of the game there could be a question mark, or something else to represent the guessing part of the game...just an idea

    What about in front of the clock you have a speech bubble with a question mark in it.
