Scrabble For iPad

It cheats like crazy on the ‘Hard’ setting, using place names, foreign words and dodgy ‘variant’ spellings - ie. words that are just spelled wrong - but there’s no denying that this is a slick and enjoyable version of the classic board game. It’s also one of the few iPad games that adds new features not found in the iPhone version. The graphics and interface have been refined for the iPad, and there’s a new ‘Party Play’ mode that allows you to play with up to four friends, who can even use their own iPhone or iPod Touch as a tile rack and use their finger to ‘flick’ letters across onto the iPad screen.

Space Station: Frontier HD

A bargain at just £2.99, Space Station: Frontier HD is a classic real-time strategy game in which you command a space station that finds itself under attack from alien invaders. In order to repel the attack you’ll have to mine the nearby asteroid fields for power crystals that allow you to build new ships and weaponry. There’s a story-driven campaign mode for you to work through, as well as three mini-game modes that provide a bit of variety and some extra cash for technology upgrades. You can also play with a friend on either the iPad or iPhone, via Bluetooth or a Wi-Fi network.
