    I could definitely see Scoops being a serious contender in the best casual game. Maybe the only competition against you could be Up There, which I also really enjoyed. The best of luck to you!

    I can't believe TanZen is not in any of the catagories!:eek: I think that game is awesome and definetley deserves best 99 cents app or best puzzle game.

    I agree, Tanzen should be up there. If it was it would win multiple awards.

    Well half the nominations were chosen by the number of nominations each app got in each category. So I guess WhiteBear didn't do a good job of getting the vote out :(

    that would be very surprising. They do deserve a spot there though.


    P.S: Will scoops see a price drop to .99 cents soon? Maybe even for new year SALE. as you can read in here : http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=3109 people feel more confortable somehow paying for .99 cent games than 1.99$. Also I missed all the promo code give aways, will there be another one?

    Just wanted to let people know that Blackbeard's Assault was nominated in the Best Game Port category! Hurray!! :D

    Click here to vote for Blackbeard's.

    It's up against some big name games so I don't think I have much of a chance to win, but you never know ;)
