Doodle Jump, Bloons and Plants vs Zombies nominated for game Meffy
The short list of nominations for this year's prize is as follows.
GameHouse for Doodle Jump
Iricom for The Last City
Jump Games for Bloons
Nokia for Ovi Maps Racing
PopCap for Plant vs Zombies
Of that list, Doodle Jump was originally an iPhone game, now ported to other mobile devices, Bloons a Flash game since released for iPhone and mobile, and Plant vs Zombies a PC/Mac game that's come to iPhone.
Nokia's Ovi Maps Racing is exclusive to Nokia devices, while Iricom's The Last City - the black sheep of the pack - is an online multiplayer game, which won the Global Mobile Award as the best mobile game 2010 at Mobile World Congress.
The 2010 Meffys shortlist reflects the profound changes and opportunities occurring in the current mobile media and entertainment industries.
"Mobile is no longer a standalone platform but is increasingly an integrated and integral gateway to engaging, entertaining and satisfying consumers," said Rimma Perelmuter, MEF's executive director.
The winners will be revealed on June 21 at a dinner event at London's Grand Connaught Rooms, prior to MEFs conference, the Mobile Entertainment Market.
