The 2010 International Mobile Gaming Awards nominees are in, and while firm favourites like Plants vs Zombies and Epic-developed Infinity Blade are no brainers, the list is full of more obscure delights to tickle your portable gaming fancy.

Judges whittled this year’s nominees down from 263 entrants from around the world. Over the course of the IMGA’s seven year history, its judges have reviewed over 1,400 titles.

The People’s Choice category is, obviously, open to voting from the people, so go ahead and cast your vote after you’ve checked ‘em out.

The Awards take place in Barcelona in February. The full list of thirty nominees is below.
