Hottest games for the new iPad 2

The iPad 2 is rarer than a unicorn eating a truffle. If you managed to get one, you are no doubt wondering what games to buy.

The iPad 2 is rarer than a unicorn eating a truffle. If you managed to get one, you are no doubt wondering what games to buy. Here are a few recently released gems for the iOS platform that will make you glad you helped buy Steve Jobs a new diamond-encrusted hot tub.

Dungeon Raid
Company: Fireflame Games
Cost: $2.99
Grade: 4 (out-of-5)

Must. Play. Dungeon Raid. That will be your mantra once you get your hands on this addictive RPG/puzzle hybrid. Mix Bejeweled with a role-playing game and pepper liberally with arcade intensity. The end result is total and utter addiction. Recent updates have beefed up the game significantly, adding a level system, more enemies and achievements.

Drop7
Company: Zynga
Cost: Free
Grade: 4 (out-of-5)

Remember the time you wasted when you first discovered Tetris? Prepare for a repeat when you get your grubby little paws on Drop7. This deceptively simple puzzler tasks you to arrange numbered globes on a playing field. When you match the number on the globe to the number of globes it is next to, they disappear. Soon you’ll be lining up massive combos, and before long your wife and job will be history. Cool!

The winner

Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP
Company: Capybara Games
Cost: $4.99
Grade: 5 (out-of-5)

This is a meditative game that blends the best parts of a point-and-click adventure with a moving narrative and a whole lot of artsy tomfoolery. The soundtrack is unbelievable, and the whole package perfectly showcases what the iPad can do.
