Ridiculous Fishing and Badland win Apple's Games of the Year
Apple has crowned two premium apps as 2013's Games of the Year on iPhone and iPad.
Developer Vlambeer's Ridiculous Fishing ($3) — with "great controls, hugely rewarding challenges, and vibrant retro-style graphics" — is the iPhone GOTY. It beat out runner-ups Simogo's Device 6 ($4) and PopCap's free-to-play sequel Plants vs. Zombies 2.
Apple named Frogmind's Badland ($4) as the iPad GOTY. It earned praise for its controls as well, along with its "haunting visuals," cooperative play, and challenges. The title won over Firaxis Games' XCOM: Enemy Unknown ($20) and Kevin Ng's Impossible Road ($2).
