In the week before Christmas we asked our fans on Facebook to vote for their favourite game in order to pick Miniclip’s Game Of The Year 2012! Over six days we asked you to vote on six games; the options were:
1: London 2012: Official Minigame: 2012 was the year of the London Olympics and we were honoured to host the official Olympics Minigame! This game was a big favourite over the summer, earning it a place on Game Of The Year shortlist.
2: Rail Rush: available on web, Android and iPhone, Rail Rush was one of the most successful games of 2012, with over two million downloads! With numbers like that, why would it not be on the Game Of The Year list?
3. Rubble Trouble Moscow: this explosive game blasted its way on to the Game Of The Year shortlist. It was one of our favourites and one of yours, too!
5. Mini Pets: this cute Android and iOS title was one of our favourites in 2012. The game lets you shelter the cutest animals on earth. Give them the best accommodations around, watch them fall in love and welcome their babies!
6. Ice Temple: Fireboy and Watergirl: the final Game Of The Year option was this puzzling adventure! This adventuring title can be played by one or two players, and its unique controls made it a definite choice on the Game Of The Year shortlist.
Each day we posted a new Game Of The Year option, Miniclip’s fans could vote for the game as their Game Of The Year choice by liking the post. The posts received thousands of likes, and the results are in! In reverse order, these are the votes each game received:
6: Mini Pets — 169 votes
5. Rubble Trouble Moscow — 298 votes
4. Ice Temple: Fireboy and Watergirl — 345 votes
3. Rail Rush — 500 votes
2. London 2012: Official Minigame — 503 votes
1. 8 Ball Pool by Miniclip — 5,869 votes
The winner then, with a huge number of votes was 8 Ball Pool by Miniclip!
