Angry Birds Seasons HD [Buy it]

Don't ignore the Angry Birds phenomenon. Resistance is futile. Just embrace it and kiss your social life goodbye. This delightful strategy game challenges you to launch teams of ticked off birds towards a bunch of pigs, where the goal is to not only destroy the evil swine, but also cause massive property damage.

Flight Control HD [Buy it]

The phrase, "an oldie but a goodie" certainly applies to Firemint's outstanding strategy game that casts you as a flight controller charged with guiding planes to their respective hangars. An elegant presentation, user-friendly control scheme and catchy music make this a must play.

Infinity Blade [Buy it]

Pick up a sword and then embark upon a dangerous quest full of monsters and mayhem, where you attempt to avenge your father (and his father's father, and so on and so forth) by slaying the nefarious God King. A plethora of weapons, addictive gameplay (think Punch-Out!! with monsters) and some of the best graphics on iPad will keep you hooked for hours.

Real Racing HD [Buy it]

You'll never see Sony's Gran Turismo on the iPad and you'll never miss it, thanks to Real Racing HD. This simulation heavy racer looks phenomenal stretched across that glorious screen, with realistic graphics that pull you into each thrilling event. Beyond that, there's a 76-mission career mode, 48 real world cars, local and online multiplayer, 12 tracks, multiple camera views and more. You'll love it.

Then again, perhaps you'd rather go with the sequel, Real Racing 2 HD, which features iPad 2 specific features. [Buy it]

Asphalt 6: Adrenaline HD [Buy it]
