We talk about games an awful lot here on Pocket Gamer. Which is what we're here to do, after all. We suspect most of you wouldn't have it any other way.

This can mean that we neglect talking about the people who actually make those games - the indie champs, one-person teams, and mega corporations busy shaping this crazy industry.

We're not about to swing the balance of our coverage radically the other way - we'd recommend checking out our sister site PG.biz if you'd like some extra insight on the business of making mobile games - but we are going to dedicate this little feature to the iOS and Android developers that have impressed us in 2019.

To be perfectly honest, we're still talking about games here. After all, none of these companies has caught our eye with their innovative management structures or successful funding campaigns. No, they've all made great or highly influential games.

Any other developers you think deserve a mention? Let us know in the comments below.
