Some comments:
1) General content
Putting as much information in the interface will be troublesome with lower resolutions: current interface is already scaled down to fit in the screen. Edit your config.xml and set 480x320 to see what I mean

2) Intent of the various shapes of the interface
While the top left image is obvious (close to what we currently have), when would the other parts show up?

3) Death mode
although text is displayed every turn, indeed we might be more explicit. And putting it in the interface is probably better than anywhere else, where it would hide things

4) Weapon strength
I disagree that it should replace the content of the interface: the information there is still interesting (wind strength, time left, ...). And this is not replaced by enough relevant information.

5) Weapon information
There might be no room in the bottom right corner (see 1).

6) General touchscreen support
I have added a button to shoot to the interface, and moved the weapon menu to the left (on low resolution it was showing over the minimap, quite troublesome). But I really have trouble putting all the controls on the screen:
- said shoot button should be moved to its own location
- how to design, display and interact with controls to move and aim? We currently can't jump either on touchscreens
- if we display an help box for the weapon, it should not obstruct the display of anything else

The right side is quite empty only with the wind indication, we probably can add a little icon on the extrem right. This button could be use to display menu (on maemo button are better than keyboard andwhen you desactivate camera movements on border - what i do - it could be fun to have a click way to display pause menu)

Actually the bottom bar is too big (for little resolution), There is some useless informations (energy of actual character), some informations are missing (name of players).

There is one box for shoot power bar level but it could be better to include it in the bottom bar.

There is weapon information in actual box but display this information here prevents to display help.

There is no message when it's your turn or when it's death mode time.

With this new mockup interface all of these problems could be solved
