Well, well, who would have thunk it?
At the GamesMaster Golden Joystick Awards 2011 gala ceremony last Friday, Rovio’s physics-based puzzler Angry Birds Rio received the trinket for Best Mobile Game.
The Finnish developer’s ultra-popular movie tie-in (with 20th Century Fox’s animated feature Rio) beat Halfbrick’s strawberry-slashing arcade game Fruit Ninja into second place.
The Golden Joysticks are voted on by the general public, so Angry Birds Rio’s incredibly large and loyal userbase was likely to stand it in good stead in this type of ballot.
The big question is, though: did YOU vote?
Oh, well, there’s always next year.
