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: Real Boxing (for iPhone and iPad).



To give you a greater idea of what it's like to go toe-to-toe with David Haye, Vivid's latest sports sim Real Boxing uses your iPhone or iPad's front-facing camera to translate your real-world punches into virtual uppercuts.

Though the game's visuals are brutally realistic and the opponent roster is well stocked, most of the buzz surrounding Real Boxing is focused on this Kinect-esque gesture-control system, which the developer has dubbed "V-Motion".

We must admit that our experience with Real Boxing's hands-free controls wasn't entirely positive, but that hasn't stopped the game earning a healthy number of positive reviews. (That's probably due to the fact that you can fall back on more traditional touchscreen inputs to launch your attacks if you wish)

One thing's for sure: Real Boxing doesn't pull any punches when it comes to representing player damage on-screen. A well-connected haymaker will send blood and sweat arcing across the ring, providing you with a grisly visual reward for that timely right hook.

If you fancy a few rounds of Real Boxing, you can download it on iPhone and iPad for £2.99 / $4.99 now.
