One of our jobs here at Pocket Gamer Towers is to sieve through the hundreds of apps that hit the App Store and Google Play every single day and unearth the gems.

Lately, though, we've been giving you, our glorious readers, the chance to have your say, too. Basically, we've been giving you the opportunity to tell us your favourite game from a shortlist of the week's best releases.

We've now tallied up this week's votes - from comments on the site, tweets on Twitter, and votes in our Facebook poll - and the winner is: Battle of the Bulge (for iPad).



From the moment the Battle of the Bulge project appeared on Kickstarter, it was clear that the game had struck a chord with strategy fans - even before it had been finished.

Raising nearly double its goal of $20,000 back in May, the team set to work preparing "a serious historical simulation game" that would not only be fun, but also educate its players.

Judging by your votes, it seems that Shenandoah Studios has delivered on its promise, producing a handsome, but challenging war sim that's earning plaudits from customers and critics alike.

Focusing on one of the most important Allied victories in World War II, the game lets you play out the surprise attack launched by the Germans during the December of 1944, and the retaliation that followed.

Players can face-off against one-another over Game Center via asychronous multiplayer, play locally on one iPad, or take on an AI opponent.

Victory

Whether you choose the shorter opening battle scenario, or the full battle campaign, Battle of the Bulge is intent on immersing you in the realities of strategic conflict.

At £6.99 / $9.99, Battle of the Bulge is an investment, but one that seems to be paying dividends for iPad-owning war game enthusiasts and armchair commanders.
