PopCap and Epic lead Int'l Mobile Gaming Awards

Titles from UK, Germany and Israel also take home IMGA prizes

PopCap's Plants vs Zombies and Epic's Infinity Blade are among the winners at the latest International Mobile Gaming Awards.

PopCap's tower defence title took the Best Casual Game prize, while the Unreal-powered Infinity Blade was given Excellence In Design.

It was a good night for German devs, with FDG's Beyond Ynth and Fishlabs' Snowboard Hero taking Excellence In Gameplay and Best Sports Game respectively. Beyond Ynth also went on to scoop the Grand Prix award, and Snowboard Hero the Operator's Choice award.

UK studio Somethin' Else, meanwhile, won Most Innovative Game for Papa Sangre, while Israel's Soulbit took Best Real World Game for AR Invaders.

"This year's nominees offered a wealth of innovation, visual quality and addictive gameplay," said Maarten Noyons, CEO and founder of the IMGA. "The selection of the six category winners and the Grand Prix winner is not only the result of long and very vivid deliberations by the jury but also a lot of fun playing the nominated games."

The consumer-voted People's Choice Award went to Perfect Cell by Mobigame - the French firm perhaps once best-known for its legal dispute with disgraced Edge Games boos Tim Langdell.

The seventh annual International Mobile Gaming Awards were held at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, with winners whittled down from some 260 titles originating from 40 countries.
