    The winners of last week's Game of the Week poll are pending...


    Last week's GOTW thread: http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=255226


    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 (even if they aren't listed in this original post), 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 for it. 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 with some activity. If you have to ask someone to create a new account to vote, you're doing it wrong.
    3) Suspect votes may be void.
    4) Game updates, no matter how significant are not eligible for GOTW. There are enough new games to nominate that haven't been considered before.


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

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

    If Space Miner was a new release I'd definitely nominate that too. The new update got me to reinstall and I've been loving it like it was 2010 all over again.

    And like AKD said Space Miner's update deserves a mention too. I haven't started playing through it again yet but I am excited to do so. :)

    The other nominations pale in comparison to Alto's Adventure (IMO). So it was an easy choice. I only played AG Drive a handful of times, with Alto's dominating my game time. It's obviously a beautiful game, but the little intricacies continue to unravel the more I play it. The the core gameplay gets more and more fun with practice.

    With tons of objectives, unlockable characters, day/night cycles, varied weather conditions, simple yet addictive gameplay... it's got undeniable charm. I even got a not-so "hardcore" gamer friend of mine to download it without even pressing the issue. And she really likes it!

    Just topped my high score tonight, but there's a lot of competition on the leaderboards. Good to see all the discussion in the forum thread too. It's an entertaining read.

    Yeah its frustrating when people cant just post in a few seconds their favourite games. Even with posts in threads to ask to vote etc its sometimes minimal.

    I like these polls as often i'll see a game which i somehow missed the first time it was out earlier in the week.

    But theres a lot of users here, shame more people cant vote or nominate games, doesnt take long
