    Really nice and clean theme. A lot of themes people make for video games look nice but not so clean. This is the first I've seen that looks nice and clean all around.

    Just finished moving all my icons around and I must say, the screenshots look great but does not compare to how awesome this theme looks on the phone.
    Also I have not noticed any lag whatsoever.

    Superb job Zach!!

    This looks great. I was trying to make one where everything gets highlighted red and yours takes care of that. I don't know if its possible but can you change the the way the keyboard highlights from blue to red?

    looks great, my only suggestion would be the highlight for icons being changed. The thumbprint idea another guy does for his windows 7 themes is great, and you could do a similar styled one by just leaving the icons as are, but having the gears logo go over it in the corner. Something like this where I put it for the browser:

    while it is a good idea, i think a glow would be better than putting up another image. it takes away from the smoothness this theme has.

    anything would work, my only complaint is the highlight now looks sorta out of place. just throwing up some ideas because the icons and theme are really well done.

    Not to take any thunder away from the OP, because I dig this GOW theme just like everybody else, but here is another GOW theme over at sm0g.

    I dig your icons because it's from the game, but the way he has his setup is pretty nice. No glowing box around it, it just bounces and shows the name of the icon when you press it. Maybe change it to act a little more like that?

    Here's the link: sm0g • Login You'll have to register to view it.

    Just so the OP doesn't misunderstand me, I dig this theme a lot more. It's more authentic with the achievement icons. I just agree with everybody else in the sense that I don't like how the icons respond when touched.

    I don't think this is possible, I didn't see any options for it.

    Thats cool, people are always going to have their likes and dislikes when it comes to this sort of thing although it's highly unlikely that i'll make any changes other than a couple mentioned at the start of this thread. I played around with a couple of ideas as to what would happen when you press the buttons and the way i've made it was my favourite.

    As for bouncing icons unfortunately I have no idea where to even start and imagine it would involve Composer.

    Saying that I may consider releasing an alternative theme with the Gears logo as suggested by jcharris08, and possibly one that doesn't have anything behind it glow or anything as there wouldn't be a much extra work involved. As i'm not sure if anyones noticed but the icons are slightly desaturated when not selected, so turn full colour when selected, which could be nice on its own.
