The Independent Games Festival has named the finalists for the mobile version of their long-running awards ceremony, given out each year at GDC to the independent developers who have brought the most to their medium. IGF Mobile, which was added on to the traditional IGF in 2007, will be giving a $500 prize to the winner in each of fivee categories, and $2,500 to the coveted “Best Mobile Game” winner.

There are some excellent choices this year, including three finalists in each category, and three “Honorable Mentions” for games which won’t receive a prize but are certainly worth a look. Those games are:
