Best Game Design Phoenix II is designed to be a great pickup-and-play game for mobile, with addictive gameplay and endless new content to unlock and explore. Every decision in Phoenix II was made with these goals in mind.The core game experience consists of daily missions of up to 20 waves of enemies, where every next wave is harder than the one before it. This quickly pushes players to their limits. Players tackle these challenging missions with an expansive roster of over 60 space ships. Each ship comes with a unique weapon and two special abilities that can be individually upgraded. Learning how to best use the special abilities and discovering how they synergize with each other in order to beat the mission, form the basis of Phoenix II's deep gameplay. New missions are generated daily using our procedural content generator and are the same for all players around the world, so that players can compare their scores on our leaderboards. A league system ensures that players get a mission appropriate for their skill level. Finally, players can create their own community to play together with their friends. Each community gets their own unique missions and leaderboards. The combination of daily new missions, deep and challenging gameplay, and the large ever-growing collection of ships to unlock and upgrade keeps players coming back for their daily dose of arcade action.

Best Technical Achievement Phoenix II was designed from the start to push the latest generation of iOS devices to their limit. The spectacular action is powered by our own in-house developed game engine. Over fifteen thousand entities can move on the screen at once at a smooth 60 frames per second. Advanced effects such as a bloom and anamorphic lens flares are used to enhance the brilliant effects, all rendered in Wide Color HDR. And of course Phoenix II has no loading times, so you never have to wait before you can start blasting Invaders.We are continually upgrading our game engine, and in our latest update we will push it even harder to reach an amazing 120 frames per second on the new iPad Pros. This higher frame rate makes the game's controls even more responsive and the action super fluid. It is hard to believe that a game that looks and feels this good runs on a device that you can hold in your hand.

Best Music & Audio Every great arcade game needs to have a brilliant soundtrack. Niels van der Leest delivered with both "Horns of Despair" and "Strings of Valour". From haunting horns to epic guitars with a generous dose of pulsating synths, the tracks combine perfectly with the intense action, creating a rhythm where you just want to keep on playing.And to create the perfect continuous experience, the music seamlessly goes over into an ambient version when the player returns to the game UIs. As soon as the player hits play again, the music blends back into the battle track. Player reviews on the App Store often mention the soundtrack as a reason why they keep the game open, just to be able to listen to it one more time.
