The iPad can be a wonderfully gaming device for your casual player.
Games like Angry Birds, Cut the Rope, and Candy Cash Saga are just as much fun in their tablet forms, plus you get more screen space to take in the cute artwork that developers put into their games.
But what about the really hardcore gamers? The ones who have at least one of the major game consoles or a gaming PC and expect more from their games?
We've rounded up the very best games available on the iPad for the gamer who wants more intricate gameplay, higher production quality, and the emotional stories that most people don't associate with tablet gaming.
11. Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP is a beautiful mix between an experimental musical album and a video game. It's a bit short, but given the low price of the iPad version it's definitely worth a play through.
10. Scribblenauts Remix is a delightfully cute game with a surprising amount of depth. To solve puzzles, you can summon things just by typing in their names — from objects like a hose or a bat to animals or even God. In almost every scenario, there's a wide range of creative options a player could come up with.
