An easy way to figure if a game was released in 2012 or not is to search the game on Appshopper. The site will have stats about the game on the right hand side about the release date as well as sales.

Here you go LOLavi: http://appshopper.com/games/crazy-hedgy

This year I would like to restate my request that the nomination period not stop before the end of the year (or Christmas App Store lock-down) so as to include all releases for the year and allow fair play time.

If you guys are interested, here's what I have going into my personal top 10 so far:

The Walking Dead
The Devil's Attorney
Happy Street
Angry Birds Star Wars

That leaves me with 3 spots open for quarter 4 releases. I might even have to drop 1 or 2 from this list if they are amazing.

Hmm... I'm afraid my list will have at least have 4 runners.

But then we can't nominate yet.

EDIT: just read that we can discuss possible noms...

I'll start with an IF...

If gameloft fixes the server issues, HOC will bee a good candidate for me.
