Apple Magazine - - Best Of 2018 -

How­ever, the iPhone game of the year award doesn’t go to any of the above. This year, Ap­ple has awarded the ti­tle to a story-based physics puz­zle game in which, rather than play as a one­man army, you are ac­tu­ally a hole in the game it­self. Donut County, by An­na­purna In­ter­ac­tive, treats ‘trash as trea­sure’, in an in­no­va­tive game that of­fers a unique, ab­sorb­ing and in­creas­ingly more-ish ex­pe­ri­ence in­volv­ing play­ers at­tempt­ing to throw as much of a small town into the ground as they can.

Donut County is the cre­ation of leg­endary game de­signer Ben Es­pos­ito (What Re­mains of Edith Finch and The Un­fin­ished Swan), and for only $4.99, iPhone users can down­load this in­cred­i­ble, vis­ually en­gag­ing ti­tle and see what all of the fuss – as well as the award – is about.
