Not drop hunt.  "Drop hunt" already has the meaning "gathering crafting materials by killing monsters".  You could use the word "droplet" instead of "drop".  "Smithereens" are usually solid fragments rather than liquid droplets, but other than that it is ok.


There is a thing called a medicine dropper, if you have one in your game then maybe you could call the game Medicine Dropper.  It looks like this:



Oh yeah, numbers.  Drop Hunt 2/5, Smithereens 3/5


I like the intro and the art! smile.png  I would play this kind of game.
