Just what were the best mobile and handheld games of 2012? And which companies absolutely kicked ass last year and deserve to be recognised for their achievements?

Stick with me, for we're about to find out. Well, soon.

Yes, I'm delighted to announce that the Pocket Gamer Awards 2013 are now LIVE! Live!
