Game interface

I’m about to make a flash game, so turists get to know Greece better while solving riddles and answering questions in a small adventure game.

In the link below you can see an idea for the 1st page, where the menu and logo are found.
Well…I’m not so fascinated about it but I’d like to hear a couple more opinions.

If you click “new game” you get to see another idea of mine, where real photos change into vectors, so the interactivity takes place.
Critique on that one would be appreciated as well.

cheers all
