10 must-have iPad games
1. Angry Birds HD
This is probably the king of all mobile games right now. At this point, we're beginning to think that it's actually impossible for you not to have heard of Angry Birds. Indeed, the developer Rovio seems to be doing a really great job at popularizing the franchise, and we can't blame them. Currently, there are three Angry Birds games available in the App Store: the original, Seasons and Rio, all of which are worth playing. However, March 22 will be a pretty big day for all fans of the game, since the first more significant sequel
in the form of Angry Birds Space is going to come out, bringing some completely new elements to diversify the gameplay.Angry Birds HD
Price: $4.99Angry Birds Seasons HD
Price: $1.99Angry Birds Rio HD
2. Fruit Ninja HD
Fruit Ninja HD is one of the most simplistic and addictive games available on the App Store. It's simplistic, because the main concept behind it is incredibly simple: fruits are flying into the screen and you have to slice them by sliding your finger over them, which may even sound boring to some, but trust us, this game should have "Dangerously Addictive" written all over it.Fruit Ninja HD
3. Cut the Rope HD
Another classic ultra-hit game available for your iPad. Cut the Rope introduces you to the unbelievably sweet Om Nom, whose ultimate joy in this world is to... eat candy. Behind all of that colorful sweetness, however, hide 250 levels of brain-busting gameplay. Actually, let's add another 125, because that's the number of additional levels you'll get if you also purchase the sequel - Cut the Rope: Experiments HD.Cut the Rope HD

This is one of the greatest puzzle games available for the iPad, complete with polished graphics and again, an ultra-addictive gameplay. The unique style of this title is what wins its position right next to the other blockbusters of iOS.World of Goo HD
