Contest Brief

We need a new icon for this game: [login to view URL]

It's "RUSSIAN pyramid" version of pool:
[login to view URL]
1 red ball and 15 white balls, small pockets.

The deliverable must be a 1024x1024 png image, no transparency, full square (NO rounded corners).

Download the game to your Android phone. Please note that the icon is needed for the Russian localization and the Russian Billiards flavor of the game.

I'm setting contest duration to 30 days so as to be able to run 2-3 days long performace tests with the game to see which version of the icon generates more downloads of the game. Every 2-3 days I'll take 3 icons which I like and put them into an "experiment" on GooglePlay, displaying each of these icons with 25% probability to Android users. I will give 1 star to the icons which I don't like (and which I won't even test) and 2 or more stars depending on how those good icons performed on Google Play. I will generally be able to give a rating only several days after you submit your icon. Please don't participate if you don't like this procedure and don't want your icon to be displayed on Google Play for even 2-3 days at 25% probability.

Please don't include any watermarks on the file - I can't run any tests with them. It is a guaranteed contest and I only need 1 final icon, I will pay for the icon with the best performance.

    Hi! Someone reported my entry (#17) as it's not mine, although I have full rights to use/modify the image. If you still have interest please send me a chat message. Best regards

    Entry #17 is so far the only one to outperform my own initial icon in the A/B tests on Google Play, so I'm giving it 3 stars (and not 2, as I do for anything that I test and that doesn't perform better than the current version on Google Play). I'll keep testing any new submissions in hopes that something else outperforms even #17 - will give 4 and 5 stars to those, hopefully. Thanks!

    Please note that the target audience of this game is NOT international users but mostly just the Russian players or players in post-USSR republics. So, using colors of the Russian flag, or the English "R" letter, or any other typical symbols of Russia are pointless. In fact, the target audience probably doesn't even know that so many versions of the pool game exist in the world. Instead, they think that "Billiard" means "Russian pyramid". So, please just stick to the pool game itself, with specific balls in this version of the game: 1 red, many white, a pool table with very narrow pockets - that's what these users expect. Placing English text in the icon is also pointless because 95% of these users can't read English at all (!) It could make sense to insert the words "Русский бильярд" in Russian, but I still think it's bad taste to place text into icons.
