A ‘HOLE’ LOTTA FUN
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.
