Worms HD

Worms is an old favourite of mine going back many years, and I reckon this ‘HD’ version for the iPad deserves a mention as it’s one of the few iPad games that sells for exactly the same price as its iPhone counterpart. The Worms formula hasn’t changed much over the years – it’s a turn-based game in which opposing teams of worms blow each other up with exploding sheep, blow torches and other daft weapons. The levels are randomly generated so the game never really ends, and there’s a variety of single- and multi-player game modes for you to try out.

Zen Bound 2

Zen Bound was one of the most original games released on the iPhone, replacing conventional gaming action with a more relaxing mood as you attempt to wrap lengths of string around carved wooden shapes - check out the free ‘lite’ version, it’s not as dull as it sounds. Zen Bound 2 is described as the ‘sequel’ to Zen Bound on the iPhone, although it’s really more like the extended director’s cut than a true sequel. It includes all 76 levels found in the iPhone version, along with about 30 new levels, improved graphics and new features such as paint-bombs that you can use to get at tricky spots.
