It's that time of year iFans

Apple revealed the list of the best apps and games of 2019 on the App Store last night.

Nomadia Studio's attractive puzzle-platformer Gris was named game of the year for Mac and DotEmu's Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap was declared the best game on Apple TV.

On the iPad, Flow by Moleskine won the best app of the year, offering an "elegant digital notebook" experience for iPad owners. The Apple TV's App and Game of the Year, respectively, are The Explorers and Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap. Apple claimed that apps and games "help simplify our lives and express our creativity, connect us to friends, family and the world beyond, and of course, have fun".

Apple's iPad game of the year 2019 is Hyper Light Drifter - a love-story to 16-bit action adventure games.


According to Apple, the App Store is the world's safest and most vibrant app marketplace, with over half a billion people visiting each week.

Mac: GRIS - Developer Nomada Studio's artful meditation on mental health, grief, and hope presented as a side-scrolling platformer.

Naturally, the company also took the chance to highlight a favourite game from its recently launched Apple Arcade subscription service, naming Simogo's Sayonara Wild Hearts as the best game in the collection so far. "We are excited to announce such a diverse group of 2019 App Store winners, showing that great design and creativity comes from developers large and small, and from every corner of the world".

Neither of those critical darlings were downloaded as much as Mario Kart, Call of Duty Mobile, Fortnite, or a game with a sperm cell for an icon.
