    The winners of last week's Game of the Week poll are in...
    1st Place: Land Sliders [18 votes]
    2nd Place: HiPoKo [15 votes]
    3rd Place: the Sequence [14 votes]


    Last week's GOTW thread:
    [FONT=&quot]http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=271831[/FONT]
    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.

    After I played Lara Croft Go and Monument Valley its hard for me to like any other game because those two games raised the bar real high.
    Its all very bland and always the same mechanics, getting a bit tired of this IOS gaming, 6 years ago I was tired of console gaming and now its happening again.

    Lol, due to so few nominations, it might even make it into the poll.

    All other games i tried have, for me, some fun and gamebreaking issues...
    Shooty Skies (no relative touch)
    Mos Speedrun 2 (bad wall jumping)
    Balloons (way too much tapping)
    Storm Casters (no issue, simply not a new game for me)

    Chose Mos 2. Big fan of Physmo, and Mos 1, and this sequel hit all the right notes for me, stays mostly true to the original and what made that one an iOS classic, while adding just enough new elements to stay fresh and not feel like an update to the original. Two thumbs up, five stars and my vote.

    Cheers for the reminder, akd. Whilst I've played Shooty Skies more, I know that I'll still be playing Mos Speedrun 2 at Christmas. Like Mikey on steroids.

    Thanks Qwertz555 and paulkane for the MICROGEE support!!! Here’s a little backstory about the game; the player IN the game might be like you, a gamer who has fallen asleep and thinks he’s inside an arcade game, floating endlessly (http://endlessfloater.com) until he wakes up after hitting something sharp or hard or gooey. It’s made by me, Darren Murtha and it’s my first arcade game. It has a great, 22 minute, spacey, chill soundtrack to float to...I really appreciate you playing this free game!
