    The winners of last week's Game of the Week poll:

    1st Place - Bounty Hunter: Black Dawn (21 votes)
    2nd Place - Magic 2014 (13 votes)
    3rd Place – League of Evil 3 (12 votes)

    Last week's thread:
    http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=194573

    The first part is nomination where every member can vote up to 5 games to be included in the poll. Releases active before Saturday are eligible, weekend releases can be nominated the following poll. 10 games with the most nominations will then be added to the poll on Sunday. Poll will remain open until next Wednesday and whichever game has the max votes, will be Touch Arcade forum's Game of the Week.

    Please note:
    1) Developers, publishing partners, or affiliates cannot vote for their own games. If your game is in the poll, you can't vote. You are free to ask TA forum posters in your game release thread to vote for your game... but please don't post multiple messages about it.
    2) This voting is for TA members - no outsiders allowed. If you have to ask someone to create a new account to vote, you're doing it wrong.
    3) Suspect votes from may be void.

    Notice of this poll will be given in the threads of all nominated games.

    You can see new games by looking at AppShopper.com and checking the "New" tab.

    With such a shallow week of release due, in part, to the United States holiday I wondered if it's even fair to have a GOTW poll. However, last year there was a poll and EchoSeven indicated he wouldn't be able to host this week so I assume it's fair game. I'll add new/overlooked games to the original post as nominations come in. If anyone in the community has any ideas how to handle the odd holiday slump with releases please post for consideration of all.

    Please add the sadly ignored The Sorcerer's Stone, one of the best match-3 variations I've played in a while. Takes a couple minutes to get into with a not-so-great tutorial, but once I did I was hooked.

    Noms:

    LIMBO
    The Sorcerer's Stone
    Greedy Dwarf

    The Sorcerer's Stone is at least a couple of weeks old.

    It looks like The Sorcerer's Stone was released on 06/13/13 so is not eligible for current GOTW consideration. Am I overlooking something? Was it quickly pulled and re-released?

    Nope. People were just not aware of its existence until it went on sale and Sanuku posted a video of it. Like I said, it's been out for a while now.

    Well, that sucks. Thanks for being late Sanuku! Just kidding. I appreciate all the work he does with videos, etc. Ashame no one noticed it the week of release, it's a great game. But there's probably thousands of games, some of which are hidden gems, that we miss.

    LIMBO game Winner

    Greedy Dwarf Runner Up

    SmashnBash Honorable Mention(s)

    The more I play Ninja Gaiga,the more I realize the controls need work (the jump button sticks) causing a ton of unnecessary deaths-Im removing it from my honorable mention list and the game is over priced.
