[Sister site FingerGaming rounds up the week's most popular paid and free iPad gaming applications on the App Store as of today, with World of Goo, Bakery Story and Angry Birds Seasons currently ranking among the platform's top downloads.]

This week's top paid titles are:

1. World of Goo ($4.99)
2. Angry Birds HD ($4.99)
3. Angry Birds Seasons HD ($1.99)
4. Cut the Rope HD ($1.99)

7. Star Battalion HD ($0.99)
8. Words With Friends HD ($0.99)

10. Scrabble for iPad ($9.99)

A recently concluded 99-cent sale puts 2D Boy's acclaimed physics puzzler World of Goo at the top of today's iPad sales chart. The game remains a strong seller even after returning to its normal price of $4.99, outselling previous chart leaders Angry Birds HD and Cut the Rope HD.

A Valentine's Day update brings a sales boost for Angry Birds Seasons HD, meanwhile, as a round of price drops puts EA's Reckless Racing HD and Gameloft's Shadow Guardian HD, and Newtoy's Words With Friends HD back in chart range.

Here are this week's top free iPad applications:

1. Bakery Story: Valentine's Day
2. Angry Birds HD Free

4. Pac-Man Battle Royale
5. Flick Kick Field Goal Kickoff
6. Coin Dozer for iPad
7. Dancing Craze HD Lite
8. Kick Buttowski: Loco Launcho
9. Flower Garden
10. Angry Birds Seasons HD

TeamLava's Bakery Story: Valentine's Day rises up to the top of the iPad's free game charts, followed closely by Angry Birds HD Free. Last week's chart winner TinkerBox drops to third place, as Namco's Pac-Man Battle Royale remains a popular download at fourth.

Flick Kick Field Goal Kickoff and Coin Dozer continue to rank as top free games for the second week in a row, as Snappy Touch's Flower Garden enters the top ten during a limited-time free download promotion.
