No, you should never hand out recognition solely out of some political agenda. Review the game on its own merits. In this case you have, but don't undermine it by implying that the gender of the lead designer is in any way relevant. It's a condescending attitude: "Hey little missy, gurls can make games too!"
As an aside, there are many women developing mobile games. PopCap has several women in senior roles as an example, including their creative director. They are sadly still a minority, and the hostile environment of 2014 didn't help matters.
