With July almost over, we’re headed into the final five months of 2011. With that in mind, we thought now would be a great time to look back and consider our favorite iPad games since January.
Note: This article is the second in a two-part series. Earlier, we released our Top 10 iPad Apps Of 2011, So Far list.
In no particular order, here are our Top 10 iPad Games Of 2011, through July:
Back To The Future series
Like the movie trilogy itself, we can’t get enough of Marty McFly and Doc Brown. As such, we are thrilled with each of the five games of the series.
Offering a slicker interface that its predecessors, the third Angry Birds game gets away from pig hunting and instead moves to Rio. Plus, the game continues giving back with almost-monthly updates.
The original MONOLOPY game was one of the first to arrive in 2010 along with the iPad. This is the more modern version where you can buy entire cities such as Montreal, Paris, and Beijing.
There are many racing games available for the iPad, but this is perhaps the best one to date. Plus, it is specifically optimized for both the iPad and iPad 2. Simply put, Real Racing 2 HD is a blast.
Fun and addictive, Burn The Rope HD keeps getting better. It now includes 112 exciting levels and a brand new PUZZLE OF THE DAY feature.
With guest drivers such as Duke Nukem, Barry Wheeler, and John Gore, this combat racer game is amazing fun and includes optimized features just for the iPad 2.
This high-seas adventure game lets you man one of 27 fully customizable ships as you descend upon unsuspecting ports looking for a motley crew of seafaring bandits.
They’re all here, those games you played as a child including Centipede, Asteroids, and much more.
Released earlier this month, Marathon 1 is the first in a series of iOS games based on the popular 1994 Mac game by the same name. The aliens have invaded and the current situation is dire. Do you have what it takes to survive?
You’re John “Loose” Kannon, leader of a special team of hardened cops that bend the law in the name of justice. The game, which arrived earlier this month, is backed by a fantastic soundtrack.
