    Welcome to the TouchAracde Forums' Game of the Year: 2016!

    The winner of the TouchArcade forum's 2016 Game of the Year is...

    Crashlands, which was also awarded Game of the Year by the TA front page reviewers. It's a crafting RPG, with unlimited inventory slots and amusing dialogue.

    Second place went to Teeny Titans. Collect cartoon figures & battle with them.

    Third equal are SteamWorld Heist and Planar Conquest Steamworld Heist is a turn-based strategy action shooter, while Planar Conquest is a 4X fantasy game; explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate.

    The other top 10 nominees were:
    - Imbroglio
    - Super Mario Run
    - Solitairica
    - Tomb of Mask
    - Leap of Fate
    - Reigns

    Thanks to Andy for arranging this thread and to everyone who voted.

    ---

    The rules are there are no rules. :cool:

    Just kidding. The rules are here to protect us and make the world go round and stuff. So... no more than 10 nominations each, please. To be eligible for nomination the game must have been released on iOS in 2016. The nomination period will run from now until December 27th, at which point the most nominated games will be included in a poll. The poll will run for one week, and the game with the most votes at the end of the voting period will have won the extremely coveted title of TouchArcade Forums' Game of the Year. :eek:

    Game developers are welcome to participate but are reminded that nominating/voting for their own games is frowned upon, as are shill posts/votes. I don't plan on disqualifying any nominations/votes, so I'm relying on y'all to keep this as fun and fair as possible for all.

    This is supposed to a be a fun way to celebrate the many excellent games released on iOS this year so feel free to discuss each others' nominations, just make sure to please keep it friendly. :) And please consider sharing this thread on social media - the more people that participate, the more chance we have of uncovering a hidden gem or 2!

    And...I think that's about it. I don't really know what I'm doing, so any and all thoughts/suggestions are welcome. Cheers, and happy nominating. :)

    How about let's pick no more than 10 each, then create a list from there.

    Does someone else who still uses iOS want to do that? My current Android-y-ness feels disqualifying. ;)

    In alphabetical order:

    Battle of Polytopia
    Crashlands
    Leap Day
    Redungeon
    Solitairica
    Teeny Titans
    Tomb of the Mask

    If someone wants to organize it, and can put together some reasonable rules to keep things in order to determine the winner, I'll include it in our end of the year best games coverage. (Historically we've had lots of problems with these sorts of things because someone will just put up a poll and then there's all kinds of drama regarding which votes count and which are from shills or devs stuffing the box.)

    Picking just 10 is going to be hard. The fact I don't have any in common with RogerNL shows what a good year it's been. In no particular order:

    Crashlands
    Final Fantasy IX
    Sky Force Reloaded
    Tennis Champs Returns
    Teeny Titans
    Imbroglio
    Lost Socks
    Retsnom
    SteamWorld Heist
    Human Resource Machine

    And I've had to leave off some fantastic games. Sorcery 4 I've not got round to yet, nor Ys 2 or Warbits. 9th Dawn 2 I've only scratched the surface of, as with Planar Conquest. And the three catformers, Super Phantom Cat, Nekosan and Super Cat Tales, are too difficult to choose between.

    We had an excellent year with so many great games that is hard to choose the 10 very best feom that.

    Also, we might have a few surpries before the year is over.

    Going on memory, rather than doing the honourable thing and trawling through my purchased list for former joy-giving gems, I'l plump for these (and yeah, quite a few ports as per usual with me):

    Crypt of the Necrodancer
    Leap of Fate
    Steamworld Heist
    Bully
    Nightgate
    Retro City Rampage
    Mekorama (poor dev :( )
    Imbroglio (poor dev x2 :( )
    Rush Rally 2
    And, because I'm being honest here, I love nothing more than chucking mute on, spinning some tunes or a podcast, and unleashing hell on my fellow gamers on edit///Counter Ops taken off the list, Andy!/// and Mobile Legends: Bang Bang.
