Not one but three different Pocket Gamer Awards for 2021 have nominees from our very own Buildbox community. It’s fantastic to see our creators, aka ‘Boxers,’ get recognized by the mobile game industry. 

The Pocket Gamer Mobile Games Awards is a yearly celebration of the latest and greatest in gaming across 27 mobile gaming categories. With an open voting system and mobile games from major studios to indie favorites as nominees, the gaming community and fans get to have their say and help choose the winners. We’re so proud to have creators from our Buildbox community nominated this year!

VRPlaying Games’ Balance Stuff built with Buildbox is nominated for ‘Best Quick Play Game’ in this year’s Pocket Gamer Awards. It’s a hyper-casual physics-based puzzle game that takes stacking to a whole new level. There’s even a super cute animated roll of tissue that cheers players on as they attempt to stack their way to a new high-score.
