The 25 best iPad games

We round-up all the best iPad games available right now

The iPad is now available in stores and there are already over fifty games available for purchase on Apple's new platform. The following article includes the best games available right now on the iPad, and even details the significant differences and enhancements featured in the iPad versions of these game that aren't in the iPhone releases.

Angry Birds HD

Angry Birds shot up the charts when it was released for the iPhone several months ago, and it cemented its position at the top with a free update that added a ton of new levels, which App Store customers always love. Despite the game's success, it did suffer from the iPhone's small screen size. Players had to zoom out to a ridiculous distance to play effectively and see the whole field, so this iPad version solves that problem. Oh, and it's prettier.

CastleCraft

CastleCraft is one of the first massively multiplayer online games for the iPad, and those of us around the GamePro offices are stoked for it. It's a city-building game, but players can interact in a number of ways, including trading, going into battle, or even just chatting in real-time. When not collecting resources or building your kingdom, it's possible to take a variety of military units out to war to take over the lands of others. Those who've played the free-to-play flash game Tribal Wars should find this to be familiar ground, and if that game's success is any indication, CastleCraft will be the talk of the blogosphere soon.

Civilization Revolution for iPad

Aside from the obvious (a reworked interface that takes advantage of the iPad's screen acreage) Civilization Revolution improves upon the basic iPhone version by including a Scenario Creator, which allows players to make their own challenges and adds what is essentially unlimited replay value. If there was ever a game for Civ newbies to jump into, this is it.

Cogs HD

Cogs is the tinkerer's dream come true. The game allows players to build or repair increasingly complex machines by sliding or otherwise manipulating parts on a 3D model. Parts like pipes, balloons, and gears are introduced to the player and can be used in several ways. In the Inventor mode, players have to build their own working machine, while in other modes puzzles must be solved within a set number of moves. Cogs HD looks great, and it's one of the most relaxing puzzle games out there. It comes highly recommended.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
