Shortlist for the best mobile phone games of the year revealed!

The International Mobile Gaming Awards (IMGAs) is in its 7th year now, and 30 games across six categories are up for a win.

A massive 263 games were submitted for the awards, showing just how important the mobile games industry has become.

Locally, just three games are up for awards (echoing our recent Golden Globes, I suspect!) - Australian developer Halfbrick for Fruit Ninja, Firemint's Real Racing 2 and Bird Strike from New Zealand's PikPok.
