  • “Donut County” was just awarded the distinction of iPhone game of the year by Apple itself.
  • The game, which costs $ 5, casts you as the pilot of a hole in the ground, with a mission to swallow up anything and everything.
  • The game is silly, and fun to play, but it has something to say about the effects of the tech industry on gentrification. 
  • If you don’t have an iPhone, it’s also available for the PlayStation 4, PC, and Mac. 

This week, Apple released its rankings of the best apps of the year, with indie hit “Donut County” taking the prize as the top iPhone game of 2018. 

If you’ve never played “Donut County,” which costs $ 5 on the App Store, I urge you to take a look: It’s a stylish, funny game that casts you as the pilot of a remote-controlled hole in the ground that sucks in everything it touches, from snakes and lawn chairs all the way up to mountains and Ferris wheels.
