The Game Developers Conference is a major event in the video game industry: it’s the perfect opportunity for developers to announce their new titles. But that’s not all, since the Game Developers Choice Awards take place during the conference, allowing the games of the previous year to be recognized.
And the category that interests us is none other than the best mobile game of the year, with five contenders:
The nominees for the best mobile game are …
Alba: A Wildlife Adventure (Game, Adventure, iPhone / iPad, v1.2.1, 0 MB, iOS 13.0, ustwo games)
After offering us Monument Valley and Assemble with Care, the studio already awarded the BAFTA award offers us a whole new experience.
Join Alba, who is visiting her grandparents on an island in the Mediterranean. As she prepares to spend a peaceful summer exploring nature with her friend Inès, she sees an endangered animal and realizes that she must intervene as soon as possible.
If you disregard the waste scattered here and there, the region is a true paradise in the heart of the Mediterranean! From idyllic beaches to the ancient castle overlooking the city, an entire island awaits you. In the company of your friend Inès and your grandfather who is passionate about birds, start a campaign to save the island!

Genshin Impact (Game, Adventure / Role Playing, iPhone / iPad, v1.4.0, 2.9 GB, iOS 9.0, miHoYo Limited)
We discovered Genshin Impact during our test which revealed a sublime open-world action-RPG title that can be played on current consoles, but also on iOS and Android. With a controller or on a touch screen, this multiplayer leaves nothing to chance.
Genshin Impact lives up to its popularity, and you can see why it becomes a real phenomenon once you taste it. Whether it’s to go dungeons with friends, collect resources or continue the storyline, the game amazes and fascinates with its open world, lush, filled with events and quests.
