(N.B. The monthly games chart is based on titles released and reviewed in the last month. The apps chart is based on titles reviewed over the last three months. Hence, this is not a cumulative chart and earlier released titles may have higher scores.)
Traps n' Gemstones was the run-away winner at the top of the July Qi iPad game chart. It's a lovingly crafted adventure-platformer set in a sprawling pyramid packed full of interconnected spatial puzzles. Next up, at number two, is Monster Hunter Freedom Unite. We don't often see games of such scale and ambition on iOS, but Capcom has pulled this 3D multiplayer action RPG conversion off with some style. There are monsters of a different, altogether cuter kind at number three. Monsters Ate My Birthday Cake from Cartoon Network is a charming puzzler that expertly borrows much of its look and feel from Nintendo's Zelda series. Down at number eight, finally, we have Gameloft's latest console-style FPS, Modern Combat 5: Blackout. It's the tightest and best looking iteration yet, offering up a newly mobile-friendly single player element and solid multiplayer competition.
Treehouses of The Pacific Northwest takes the number one spot on the July Qi iPad app chart, offering an innovative and beautiful look at the wonderful world of custom tree houses. At number two is Lars and Friends, a lovely app for kids that teaches them the names of groups of animals. It's all done with a unique hand-crafted art style that will really ignite young imaginations. Down at number four we have NoteLedge, which offers a range of flexible note-taking tools. Crop, copy, and edit your notes, photos, sketches, and recordings in style. Matter, at number five, lets you add 3D effects to your photos, complete with real time shadows and reflections. It's a great way to create some otherworldly and truly original images.
We'll continue to provide an updated listing each and every month, together with a round-up of the year. For all the up-to-date information on which iPad games, apps, and publishers are reviewing best, head on over to the iPad Quality Index now.
