High scores in videogames are not a new subject for the Guinness World Records, but this year Guinness is expanding its coverage of pocket gaming records as it searches for the world’s best mobile gamers.

The Top Mobile Gamer Challenge works as follows: between April 27 and April 29, Guinness will consider top scores submitted in Get Set Games' Mega Jump, Visual Dreams' Dunk Basketball, and Gamelion Studios' Monster Shooter.

Kiip's Swarm technology will report the winning scores, so only those who submit their achievements through Kiip will be eligible for everlasting electronic glory.

The winners of the Top Mobile Gamer Challenge will have their names listed in The Guinness World Records 2013 Gamers Edition (set to publish in January) and will receive official certificates to recognise their pocket gaming prowess.

Breaking records in the toilet

Fitting the nomadic style of mobile gaming, the Top Gamer Challenge does not require participants to compete in designated areas under the scrutiny of Guinness officials as would normally be required for more traditional Guinness Records attempts.

Instead, all a gamer needs to compete is their mobile phone of choice, one or more of the three titles, and a world-class set of gaming skills.

How world-class is world-class?

Last year, 21-year-old Philipp Schneckenburger won the first collaborative competition hosted by Kiip and Guinness and was named in the 2012 Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition for achieving a score of 6,133,889 points in Mega Jump.
