Frozen Synapse takes home audience award

Beat Sneak Bandit nabs best mobile honour at IGF Awards 2012
Simogo's iPhone hit Beat Sneak Bandit has been named as the best mobile game of the year at 2012's International Games Festival awards.

The ceremony, held as part of the Games Developers Conference in San Francisco, saw the rhythm-action puzzler beat off ASYNC Corp from Powerhead Games, Steph Thirion's Faraway, Ridiculous Fishing from Vlambeer and Tiger Style's Waking Mars to take the title.

Match made in heaven
Beat Sneak Bandit only hit the App Store back in February, but was awarded a Pocket Gamer gold rating upon release, with the site praising its unlikely mixing of stealth and 'beatmatching'.

Simogo took home $3,000 for its troubles, with Mode 7's forthcoming iPad release Frozen Synapse picking up the event's audience award, ahead of – amongst others – Beat Sneak Bandit.

The full roster of winners can be found on the IGF website.

With a fine eye for detail, Keith Andrew is fuelled by strong coffee, Kylie Minogue and the shapely curve of a san serif font.
