All the the winners of the 2017 Mobile Game Awards

​via press release

The Tabby Awards has announced the winners of the 2017 Mobile Game Awards competition.

Winning games included Clash Royale, Madden NFL Football, Monument Valley, Pokemon GO, MARVEL Contest of Champions, and Minecraft.

Game publishers with multiple award winners included Electronic Arts, Disney, Nintendo, Gameloft, Ubisoft, and Supercell.

“With over 1.4 mobile games available today on Android and iOS combined, our mobile gaming award winners represent the top 0.007% games. These are the best of the best,” commented Matt Harney, Executive Producer of the Tabby Awards.

“We had several key themes emerge at this year’s gaming awards. We saw the importance of iconic franchises and recognizable intellectual property - like Star Wars ™, Disney’s Frozen, MARVEL, Jurassic World ™, and Stranger Things - in driving downloads and user engagement. Additionally, Android’s gaming momentum was reflected in 57 award winners, outpacing iOS’ 38 winners. Finally, the geographic diversity of the winning publishers underscores the global nature of game development today.”

With all 1.4 million iOS and Android games eligible and under consideration, winners were selected based on a combination of quantitative metrics and qualitative factors.

The analytical evaluation component focused on app store user review scores submitted over the course of 2017 to measure user engagement. The qualitative component - benefiting from the Tabby Awards expertise in judging app and game awards since 2012 - focused on user interface, design, and innovation. The degree of tablet-optimization was also a key factor in the assessment of iPad and Android tablet games.
