Lara Croft GO, Supercell, Gameloft, Vlambeer, and Nintendo are big winners at PG Awards 2016

Finest of 2015 and best of the past decade celebrated in record-breaking vote

[Would you rather find out the details for yourself? Then head over to the PG Awards 2016 results page before reading any further.]

You voted in your hundreds of thousands, setting a new record in the process and going almost as far as restoring our faith in humanity. Almost.

Then, once the dust settled, we saw the results. And that sealed it: the continuation of humankind is probably safe.

That's because your voting determined that the Square Enix Montreal-developed Lara Croft GO dominated by claiming the Android Game of the Year, Overall Game of the Year, and (effectively) Best Developer awards.

Meanwhile, celebrated puzzler The Room Three secured iOS Game of the Year, with Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate and Super Meat Boy grabbing the equivalent honors for 3DS and PS Vita, respectively.

And there was more handheld recognition in the Best Publisher category, with Nintendo claiming the award for an impressive third year in a row (and fourth time overall).

Pocket Legends

In addition to the above awards, which focused on games released during 2015, this year’s edition also featured the 'Pocket Gamer Legends' categories.

Designed to coincide with Pocket Gamer’s 10-year anniversary in March, the three PG Legends awards celebrate the games, developers, and publishers that we feel have most impressed from the past decade.

Some enthusiastic and very close voting eventually saw Supercell and Gameloft emerge as PG Legends Best Developer and Publisher, respectively, with readers evidently keen to reward the considerable contribution both companies have made to mobile gaming over the years.

When it came to the PG Legends Best Game, the fight proved even tighter. But once the votes were cast it was the critically acclaimed (and Apple Game of the Year 2013) Ridiculous Fishing from admired indie studio Vlambeer which reeled in the distinguished honour of being named the finest mobile gaming experience of the decade.

To further mark the special occasion, the PG Awards include for the first time runners-up positions in all categories. They, along with the deserved winners, can be viewed here.

So, that's it for this year. Our congratulations to all the finalists, and particularly the winners. And our thanks to you again for taking part so eagerly. Let's go bigger still in 2017…
