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

Lately, though, we've been giving you 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.

This week's votes have been counted (and recounted), and we have a winner: Gemini Rue.

As many of you will already know, Gemini Rue is a sci-fi-infused point-and-click adventure that was first released on PC back in early 2011.

In it, you take on the role of ex-assassin Azriel Odin, who's now a reformed law enforcer searching for his missing brother.

If you've played this Gold Award-winning title, you'll already know that it's not set on Earth. Gemini Rue actually takes place during the 23rd century in a war-ravaged planetary system known as the Gemini System.

At review, we called Gemini Rue an "essential game for point-and-click fanatics", and noted that it's jam-packed to the brim with atmosphere, a compelling narrative, and clever puzzles".

Still, Gemini Rue only just managed - with 35 votes - to top our most recent Game of the Week poll. Team 17's spineless military sim Worms 2: Armageddon for Android and murder mystery puzzler Blue Toad Murder Files weren't far behind.

You can download Gemini Rue for your iPhone and iPad for £2.49 / $3.99.
