I accidentally deleted Manuel's email asking for brainstorms, so I'll
respond to this one.

Glenn's idea is a great one.  As for the player graphics, don't draw them
from a overhead view Frogger style... rather, draw them from a
sort-of-angled viewpoint.  The whole thing could look quite a bit like
Tennis, with guns :)  And you could create a pretty convincing 3D effect
by clever designing and scaling of obstacles in the center.
