Call of Duty: Mobile has walked away as both Google’s pick and the users’ choice for best overall game on the Android storefront Google Play, alongside a nod as one of the best competitive games on the platform as well.

Beyond just noting the top game, Google Play’s Best of 2019 rankings take a look at best completive, best indie, best casual, and best innovative categories alongside the overall best in show award as well, offering a look at five standout titles in each category from this year’s nominees.

Call of Duty is now notably one of the few Activision Blizzard franchises to make the jump into the lucrative mobile market so far, though the series’ mobile debut has now landed the game a mention on both Google Play and the App Store Best of 2019 roundups.
