Tiny Tower is official iPhone 'Game of the Year'

The App Store has been updated with a new "Rewind 2011" feature, which declares Apple's picks for the best content throughout iTunes. We could tell you Adele won Artist of the Year, but we'll stay focused on the games.

The iPhone "Game of the Year" is Tiny Tower, a freemium game that lets you build a tower and manage the businesses and citizens that inhabit it.

Runners-up include the similarly-titled (but very different) Tiny Wings, a simple physics-based "racing" game that has you using momentum to fly as far and as fast as you can. Touchgrind BMX rounds out the selections, giving you the ability to virtually ride a 3D bike by swiping your finger.

The iPad has its own winner's list. Dead Space, a mobile spin-off of the console/PC game of the same name, earns the highest honor, thanks to its great graphics and rather ingenious control scheme.

Runners-up include Contre Jour, a puzzle game with a unique high-contrast look, and Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP, an adventure game from Capybara.
