Mirror’s Edge For iPad

At heart, Mirror’s Edge is really just an old-school, side-scrolling platform game. However, it’s tricked out with finely detailed pseudo-3D graphics, a superbly smooth and intuitive control system, and a contemporary setting that will appeal to the skateboarding and free-running generation. You play Faith, a ‘runner’ who attempts to deliver information that needs to be kept out of the hands of the totalitarian police force. This entails gravity-defying leaps across rooftops, running along walls and kicking people in the head. However, it avoids tedious repetition through varied level design and a terrific control system that allows you to leap, roll, slide and kick with a casual flick of the finger.

Need For Speed Shift For iPad

The motion-sensor built into the iPad is ideal for controlling racing games, so speed-freaks are really spoilt for choice in this particular gaming category. However, Need For Speed Shift is one of the slickest of the current crop, with new cars and more responsive handling than the iPhone version. You can also customise the look of your racer and deck it out with features such as a nitro canister that provides a high-speed boost when you need it most. If £7.49 seems a bit steep then less-expensive rivals such as Real Racing HD and Asphalt HD are looming in the rear-view mirror.
