Nominees for Destructoid’s Best Mobile Game of 2016

The best games to play while pooping

Look, we all know video games are great, but you can’t bring your cutting edge gaming PC or your Xbox Steel Battalion controller with you everywhere you go. Or maybe you can, but you probably shouldn’t. It’s bad for your back.

Thankfully, the games that show up on these little devices we carry around everywhere can be pretty dang good! Phones these days are powerful enough to handle impressive graphics, but that’s not all they have up their protective plastic sleeves. Some of the best games leverage the platform’s unique capabilities like multi-touch control and GPS tracking.

Here are Destructoid’s nominees for Best Mobile Game of 2016…

[Incomplete products like Steam Early Access titles, and episodic titles that are not fair to assess as standalone experiences, without a full episode count, were not eligible for this year’s awards. The cutoff for entry into Destructoid’s 2016’s Game of the Year awards is December 6, 2016.]
