Plague Inc. and Pandemic 2.5* are 2 different games.

Anyway, I'm going for Tiny Wings 2, Pocket Planes, Plague Inc., Ski Safari and Where's My Perry.

Also, add Major Mayhem to the list.

Haven't been into iOS gaming as of late, but I still buy games and the two that I had a hard time putting down was Fieldrunners 2 and Defender Chronicles 2.

I could be forgetting one...

Too many to name, but right now Gene Effect is my early favorite. Kingdom Rush, Sky Gamblers: Air Surpemacy, Hunters 2, Swordigo, Project 83113 and Dariusburst SP are also among my top ones (although I'm sure I'm forgetting quite a few).

I really like Asphalt 7 thus far as well and would count it as one of my favorite games right now, but I wouldn't say it's a "huge" leap or groundbreaking so don't know if I could say it's GOTY material (could be the bargain of the year though).

I know they're diff, but if that kind of game came to contention it would only be one of them(the original or the reimagining?)

My vote would go to Nihilumbra right now because it's amazing however, the games that I think have the best chances as of right now are Fieldrunners 2, Hero Academy, Waking Mars, Swordigo and Chaos Rings 2. For future predictions Infinity blade dungeons would def. be in their along with a Battleheart 2 if it comes out. Also Star Command if it Ever does come out and lives up to the hype.

Some other games to watch are Saturday Morning Rpg, Sling shot racing, and Star warfare because of updates and such.

Games like Magic and Summomer wars are still kind of new, Depends on how big they get etc...


*please move this thread to general discussion

Swordigo
Nihilumbra
Score! Classic Goals
Lumi
Great Big War Game
Pizza vs Skeletons
Waking Mars

I don't know more yet especially since I think that list doesn't have all of the good games released this year and I made my nominees based off that list.

I've bought a LOT of apps this year. Theres been a lot of excellent games i keep going back to but i must admit Swordigo blew me away. Loved the graphic style, loved all the different levels and played it a LOT. Must admit the only negative was the ending (very stressful !).

But a great game and a true iOS classic.

Swordigo gets my vote
