[Update] The PG Readers' iOS and Android Game of the Week - your vote needed
By Harry Slater 19 August 2013
Game Name: Game of the Week | Manufacturer: Steel Media | Format: Android, iPhone, iPad
Updated on August 19th, at 12:30: The votes have been counted and this week's winner is Gold Diggers.

The game is all about collecting chunks of gold. You pilot a steampunk tram down into the bowels of the earth, steering it around lava pools and spinning death spikes.

The randomly generated levels keep you on your toes, while the different sections, including mine tracks dashes and giant worm chases, mean there's always something different for you to do.

We gave it a Bronze Award at review, saying that "if you're on the lookout for an instant twitchy fix, you could do a lot worse than checking Gold Diggers out".

Gold Diggers is available from the App Store right now for free [download], and it's well worth a look.



Every week, thousands of new games hit the iOS App Store and Google Play on Android. Trying to find the diamonds in the rough is no easy task, let us assure you.

We like to think we do a pretty good job with our news articles, mid-week round-ups, expert reviews, and comprehensive features, mind.

But, now we want to know what YOU think.

Today, we're going to ask you to pick the best game that was released on iOS and Android from the past week (from the nominations below), and then we'll announce the winner in a glamorous article next Monday.

There are loads of places to vote. Leave a comment at the bottom of this article; answer the poll on Facebook; or train a shoal of jellyfish to sting your pick onto the limbs of unwary swimmers.
