It's been a busy old week for Pocket Gamer, thanks in no small part to Pocket Gamer Connects London 2019 taking place. It's one of the few times that basically everyone here finally leaves their own home for a few days, gets themselves down to the capital, and hangs out while looking at magnificent games.

But it's also been the Mobile Games Awards this week, our yearly celebration of the greatest games and developers around the world. And as well as our own awards, voted on by industry professionals, we asked our fair readers for their thoughts on the best game of last year.

Votes came flooding in almost immediately, and the race for the top spot was a close one. But after many hours counting and recounting your votes, we arrived at a winner. And that winner (as you may have guessed from the headline) is...

World of Warships Blitz!

Yes, Wargaming's ship battler stole your hearts and minds, as well as the PG People's Choice award, no doubt thanks to its explosively fun online action and wealth of beautiful battleships to collect and fight with.

That's not all, of course. Many other awards were handed out on the night, including the overall Game of the Year. The full list is below, so be sure to have a scroll through and raise a glass to your favourite games that got a nod.

And many thanks to our sponsors Game Insight, Lockwood Publishing, AppOnboard, Lab Cave, and Playdemic for making this entire thing a possibility!
