Updated on August 12th, at 11:15: The votes have been tallied up and this week's winner is Mikey Hooks.

The game is a cheerful bite-sized platformer in which you lead the titular hero over a series of spikes, robots, and bottomless pits. All the while, you're trying to shave a precious few seconds off your time.

Simple controls and gorgeous pixel-art graphics disguise a fiendishly addictive high score chaser that's all about getting to the end of the level faster than you did last time.

The game is out right now on the App Store as a Universal app, priced £1.49 / $1.99 [buy]. It comes with an official Pocket Gamer seal of approval.

We gave it a Silver Award at review, you see, and described it as a "brilliant mix of precision and fun".
