PlayDead’s Limbo and Halfbrick’s Jetpack Joyride have both walked away with the Apple Design Awards at the giant’s Worldwide Developer Conference.

The competition, which is held every year, recognizes exceptional releases on its platforms: which include iPhones, iPads, and Mac PCs. The platform holder selected ten winners this year, out of which five were videogames.

Limbo and Eidos Montreal’s Deus Ex: Human Revolution (published by Feral Interactive on Mac) won awards for their Mac editions, while Jetpack Joyride and Disney’s Where’s My Water took home awards in the iPhone category.

daWindci, a iPhone and iPad game by Realitiy Twist, received an award in the Student Developer category. You can check out the full list of winners over here.
