Doodle Jump, Bloons and Plants vs Zombies nominated for game Meffy

Doodle Jump, Bloons and Plants vs Zombies nominated for game Meffy
There are 17 categories in the Mobile Entertainment Forum's Meffy annual awards, but the only one that matters (for Pocket Gamer at least), is the gaming one.

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 MEF’s conference, the Mobile Entertainment Market.
