Brief updates

OK ... this just got a lot simpler and easier!

I have pretty clear idea what I want:

Similar to Buzz Tower images (1 &2) that i've added as files.
I like the signal of Buzz Tower 1. as it's more "energetic".
But tower (if indeed we have one) should be more stylised like Buzz Tower 2. We can add more intensity by adding 4 extra lightening bolts which can be small, medium and big (or just small and big) ... to give us 7 different intensities of signal.
I've added another 2 images for lightening bolts Lightening 1 & 2

Dont' forget it needs to work on a mobile ... so small without too much detail
I think the signal will probably come out in blue ... with blue lightening bolts as well

Palette will probably move from grey (no buzz) through to electric blue

I now only need the icon without a score number added (I will put this in a seperate column) so please forget about that element of the brief.

Final observation ...
it's probably best that the "signal" is a very faint grey template ... the crescents of energy getting filled in with colour as they get stronger ...
No 1 - No crescents
No 2 - 1 crescent
No 3 - 2 crescents
No 4 - 3 crescents
No. 5 - 4 crescents
No 6 - 4 crescents + 4 small lightening flashes
No 7 - 4 crescents + 4 bigger lightening flashes

... that way we have the full "shape" of the icon in all instances (the bolts of lightening are only visible in nos. 6 & 7)
