Design critique for HTML5 game website


#1
Hello young beautiful people,Now, I'm actually not a visual artist or graphics designer myself - as you'll soon find out no doubt ;-) - but I still want my stuff to look half decent.With that in mind, I wonder if you would like to comment positively or negatively on the graphic design of my JS Robots website which lives at http://jsrobots.com The design vibe is "martian wilderness" and I've knocked it up myself using images from NASA.Thank you. Comment is free ;-)

This is defintely a game for geeks...

Text is hard to read against background
Times new roman font - yuk. At least use trebuchet, verdana or similar.
Form elements and tables could do with a bit of colour - not just black and white. Possible use black and brown colours.

Yep, it's ultra geeky ;-)I have a (possibly erroneous!) policy of not hard setting any fonts - and I *hope* that the browser / user defaults are sensible. But where are you seeing Times New Roman by the way? Not seeing that font myself..."Hard to read against background" - I take it you mean the red game instruction text on the martian background square? Yeah, I would agree with that...Yeah, a bit of browny red on the left and right status tables might be cool.Thank you!

Thanks

Very constructive criticism - thanks guys.So in summary:[] work on the text on the martian background[] look at why main text is serifing (?) for some people[] add a touch of colour to forms and tablesWill do!In other news, do you think it would be naff to style the colour pulldown such that "Red" has a red background, "Green" has a green background and so on?
