Hey guys!

I’m looking for a bit of advise here. My file got rejected for aesthetical reasons, which I can relate to. The problem is, though, that I have a hard time improving it. Can you give me a few pointers?

The file can be found here

Thanks :)

Nice game, Joost! I would suggest changing the color of the background’s border and making it slimmer. Also you can work on buttons’ look – I would change the gradient to a more smooth one, I guess web 2.0 goes to 3.0 already. Good luck with the file! Its a nice one!

Hey Joost,

AD is picky these days huh :D

I do think you’ll get more sales by changing the color though. Maybe try something like the color scheme from this file?

Good luck! That game is so creative by the way :)

Thanks for all the advise, guys

I guess I’ll have a go at implementing your suggestions! I’ll first focus on the colour scheme then :)

If anyone has any additional advise, don’t hesitate to post ;)
