I know what you mean entirely and you're 100% correct, it's just that I've been working on this game for probably 10 years and that's what I came up with originally so it's almost too late to abandon them :/
If it's any consolation, most of the enemies aren't as "cute" as the pink ones (they're blue and scowling, kinda).
Thanks very much for the feedback though! I'll probably post some stuff soon, the backdrop is very much a work in progress.
Cool! Can we see a screenshot or mock-up?
Edit: Don't use slime bubbles/porings in your game, it has been done a million times before, think of a new, original creature to make your game more unique! (My opinion) May I suggest a black, round bat with a blue mouth for example?
