UPDATE - Angry Birds Rio wins Golden Joystick 2011 Award for Best Mobile Game
Rovio's a winner
Rovio's physics-puzzling behemoth Angry Birds Rio secured the GamesMaster Golden Joystick Award 2011 for 'Best Mobile Game of the Year' today in London.
During this annual ceremony, held at the swanky Westminster Plaza hotel in London, gongs are handed out to titles that have been voted for by gamers, rather than by mysterious men in suits or sales robots.
Angry Birds Rio, self-published by Rovio, was one of the first games on iOS to get the movie tie-in treatment.
In this Pocket Gamer Bronze Award-winning iOS and Android hit, everyone's favourite furious fowl go head-to-head against some of the villains from 20th Century Foxs summer cartoon Rio.
Back in August, Rovio claimed series-wide downloads had now passed the 300 million mark.
