Please design a new app icon for our mobile game iDestroy! The new icon design should make it clear that it’s about killing bugs with dozens of crazy weapons and plenty of blood and bug gore.
What we want from the icon, in order of importance:
1.) stand out from other icons when viewed on the iOS or Google Play app stores.
2.) communicate the game’s content and gameplay clearly. Some suggestions: silhouette of an insect and a weapon or gun sight, or an explosion. The game has a lot of red bug blood, so the icon could also show that.
3.) it must be usable on iOS, Google Play and the Windows Phone Store. These all have different requirements for border radii and the permitted size and location of transparent areas.
Our target audience is mostly male and between 12 and 18 years old.
Major competitors are: Ant Smasher and Kick the Buddy, Kick the Boss.
For our current icon designs, check out iDestroy on the App Store and Google Play:
Please design something entirely different than our current icons in the App Store!
For more info about the game’s content, feel free to download the free version on Android or iOS or check out the game’s description text and screenshots on the iOS App Store.
IMPORTANT: When submitting a design, place your icon in a mockup screen shot of the iOS app store along other app icons. Please use a screenshot of the App Store as it appears on a mobile device, not of iTunes on the Desktop. It's important that we can see how noticeable and clear your design looks in comparison to other icons out there.
Your icon design must be borderless and without any transparent areas. Also see this guide:
The final icon should be delivered as a PSD (or vector format) and PNG in these dimensions:
