As part of the Pocket Gamer 10th anniversary fun we've blackmailed former PG members into giving us a quick rundown of their favourite ten games of the past ten years. (We've also asked them to relive their PG moments, Stu included.)

They've not been asked to rank these so don't take the order below as set in stone. Rather, think of these games as a collection of digital experiences that will enrich your life.

Or perhaps look through the list and mock their choices.

Create your own list

If you do disagree, here's the magic bit: you can give us your list.

See the 'Create your own Top List' button at the bottom of the article? It's not a trick. 

You'll need to be registered with PG (and logged in) if you aren't yet.

Click on that button and the rest should prove relatively straightforward.

(You can also create lists from within your Pocket Gamer user profile, at the bottom of the 'Logged in as [x]' dropdown menu.)

You can list your all-time favourite portable games, your favourite endless runners, shooters, candy-covered-pony-featuring titles, or even your favourite game making studios.

We all love lists. Share your thoughts and you can soon see your selection on the PG site.

What's all this, then?

The Pocket Gamer 10th anniversary is a month-long celebration of the last decade of mobile games running March 10th - April 10th and featuring a stream of retrospective articles and fun stuff, supported by our friends at Gram Games, Gamevil, JoyCity, Rovio, Nordeus, and Ninja Kiwi. Head over to the PG 10th anniversary homepage for more information.


#1 Tower Bloxx

Product: Tower BloxxFormats: Android, MobileDeveloper: Digital ChocolatePublisher: Digital ChocolateGenres: Casual, Puzzle

Tower Bloxx
My favourite pre-iPhone game by some distance: it was never as big as it should have been.

#2 New Star Soccer

Product: New Star SoccerFormats: Android, iPhone, iPad, PS VitaDeveloper: New Star GamesPublisher: New Star GamesGenres: Sports

New Star Soccer
A game so addictive, every so often I have to uninstall it to remember life is 3D, and with less racehorses.

#3 Minecraft - Pocket Edition

Product: Minecraft - Pocket EditionFormats: Android, iPhone, iPad, Windows Phone, Xperia PlayDeveloper: MojangPublisher: MojangGenres: Adventure, Brain training

Minecraft - Pocket Edition
I was always fascinated by Minecraft, but seeing my 6yo and 8yo children playing it on tablets has made me even more impressed.

#4 Reset Generation

Product: Reset GenerationFormats: MobileGenres: Retro

Reset Generation
The game I'd most like to see revived for modern smartphones and tablets from the N-Gage area.

#5 Triple Town

Product: Triple TownFormats: Android, iPhone, Other, iPad, SteamDeveloper: Spry FoxPublisher: Spry FoxGenres: Puzzle

Triple Town
One of the perfect mobile puzzlers.

#6 Her Story

Product: Her StoryFormats: iPhone, iPadDeveloper: Sam BarlowPublisher: Sam BarlowGenres: Adventure, Simulation

Her Story
The game that shows interactive video CAN be great, not rubbish.

#7 Football Manager Handheld 2012

Football Manager Handheld 2012
The PSP version. I still have it installed on my Vita, and it's my stress reliever.

#8 Dots

Product: DotsFormats: iPhoneDeveloper: Cobra MobileGenres: Adventure, Puzzle

Another stress-reliever: at one point, my entire family was hooked on this.

#9 Flick Kick Football

Product: Flick Kick FootballFormats: Android, iPhoneDeveloper: PikPok GamesGenres: Sports

Flick Kick Football
In its original incarnation, a brilliant rhythm game: swipe-pause-swipe-pause-swipe...

#10 Blackbar

Product: BlackbarFormats: Android, iPhone, iPadDeveloper: Neven MrganPublisher: Neven MrganGenres: Adventure, Word game

The crossover between books and games has always interested me (see also: 80 Days, anything from Simogo) but Blackbar has stuck in my mind the most.
