TouchArcade Forums' Game of the Month - January 2017

Hello ladies and gentlefolk, and welcome to the TouchArcade Forums' Game of the Month for January 2017. It's been a great start to the year for iOS games, from the long awaited release of The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, to the excellent and unique puzzler Splitter Critters. But both of those games are going to have to go some in the poll to beat out early Game of the Year contender Vape Master.


Games nominated must have been released on iOS in January 2017.
No more than 5 nominations, please. The nomination period will end on 02/03/2017 after which the 5 most nominated games will be included in a poll.
Game developers are encouraged to participate. Released a game this month? Come tell us about it!
Nominating/voting for a game which you are affiliated with is frowned upon, as are shill votes. This is a fun poll for forum members, please keep it fair.
Participants are encouraged to discuss their nominations. The more banter the better, just make sure to keep it friendly!
Have fun.

Selected January releases

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth

Splitter Critters

Collect or Die



Milkmaid of the Milky Way

Red's Kingdom

Yay, that thread made my day. Surprise of the month for me was how burned out I was already by the pc version of binding of isaac. Gladly bought it to support premium prices, but haven't played more than an hour.

But without further ado, my nominations:
1. Milkmaid of the Milkyway
2. A Normal Lost Phone
3. Super Gridland

I'm looking forward to the final nominations!

Easy for me, as I've only really played two.

Sword Art Online: Memory Defrag - first F2P RPG nonsense that hasn't made me want to throw my phone in the microwave. It's everything I hate about modern mobile gaming - yet it's still pretty good.
Red's Kingdom - well, it's a standout. Clever, and clearly made with love.

I think I can say already that if Red's Kingdom doesn't win, I'll be slightly surprised. Unless it's Isaac.

2018 GOTY nominations: You're joking, right? I'm still playing games I got in 2015...

•DANDY DUNGEON Legend of Brave Yamada
•Sky Dancer
•Red's Kingdom

Loop! is probably not eligible since it released late December, but I figured I'd try.

I played Isaac to death on XB1 and also bought for iOS but, like OrangeKnickers, only played it briefly.

Thanks Andy!

Red's Kingdom for me. Still a few more that I'm interested in this month, but haven't played them yet so can't really nominate them yet!

Glad to see this is back! Thanks Andy. Unfortunately I was pretty busy with dev work this month and didn't get any decent playing time into this months releases (though I really want to play splitter critters)
