    Plague Inc. and Pandemic 2.5* are 2 different games.

    Anyway, I'm going for Tiny Wings 2, Pocket Planes, Plague Inc., Ski Safari and Where's My Perry.

    Also, add Major Mayhem to the list.

    Haven't been into iOS gaming as of late, but I still buy games and the two that I had a hard time putting down was Fieldrunners 2 and Defender Chronicles 2.

    I could be forgetting one...

    Too many to name, but right now Gene Effect is my early favorite. Kingdom Rush, Sky Gamblers: Air Surpemacy, Hunters 2, Swordigo, Project 83113 and Dariusburst SP are also among my top ones (although I'm sure I'm forgetting quite a few).

    I really like Asphalt 7 thus far as well and would count it as one of my favorite games right now, but I wouldn't say it's a "huge" leap or groundbreaking so don't know if I could say it's GOTY material (could be the bargain of the year though).

    I know they're diff, but if that kind of game came to contention it would only be one of them(the original or the reimagining?)

    My vote would go to Nihilumbra right now because it's amazing however, the games that I think have the best chances as of right now are Fieldrunners 2, Hero Academy, Waking Mars, Swordigo and Chaos Rings 2. For future predictions Infinity blade dungeons would def. be in their along with a Battleheart 2 if it comes out. Also Star Command if it Ever does come out and lives up to the hype.

    Some other games to watch are Saturday Morning Rpg, Sling shot racing, and Star warfare because of updates and such.

    Games like Magic and Summomer wars are still kind of new, Depends on how big they get etc...

    Score! Classic Goals
    Lumi
    Great Big War Game
    Pizza vs Skeletons
    Waking Mars

    I don't know more yet especially since I think that list doesn't have all of the good games released this year and I made my nominees based off that list.

    I've bought a LOT of apps this year. Theres been a lot of excellent games i keep going back to but i must admit Swordigo blew me away. Loved the graphic style, loved all the different levels and played it a LOT. Must admit the only negative was the ending (very stressful !).

    But a great game and a true iOS classic.

    Swordigo gets my vote

    Thanks for the votes on Saturday Morning RPG so far. Great to hear you guys like it enough for it to be in your top 10 games of the year so far!

    My picks:
    Swordigo
    Sky Gnomes

    I'm also pretty sure Lili is going to be a serious contender. One of the guys from Bitmonster helped us shape SMRPG with extensive feedback and playtesting - those guys are geniuses. I have no doubt that game will be amazing.

    How many more episodes do you think will be realeased by the end of the year? That could have some serious impact on its potential.. I liked the first 2 but after this long people will be expecting alot..

    Good luck with it...

    We're hoping to have Episode 3 and 4 out by the year's end. Episode 3 is huge, though. It should take thorough players at least three hours to fully conquer - and then there's a crazy hard optional boss whose defeat unlocks content in an older episode. Plus, endless battle will add a lot of extra replay value.
