The Game Developers Association of Australia is celebrating its region's developers with a set of awards for 2009, with Firemint's hit iPhone title Flight Control winning in three categories.

Flight Control won the Best Game, Best Gameplay and Best Mobile awards, while Infinite Interactive took home two nods for Puzzle Quest Galactrix: Best PC Title and Best Handheld Title.

Although developer Transmission Games was forced to close its doors in October, its Heroes Over Europe was recognized in the Best Console Title, Best Graphics and Best Audio categories.

Sidhe's Shatter earned Best Downloadable Title. In the indie group, Alexander Bruce's Hazard: The Journey of Life, Powerboard Productions' Last Life and AIE Melbourne's Pillager won Best Unsigned Game, Best Gameplay, and Best Graphics, respectively.

"Congratulations to Firemint on their success at the 2009 GDAA Industry Awards," said GDAA president Tom Crago. "Flight Control has been a phenomenal success and has really been responsible for the creation of an entire new genre on iPhone. We're very proud that this title was developed in Australia."
