Who’d have thought that little more than a year after Apple brought the mighty iPad tablet to market that it would not only have revolutionised mobile computing, but the gaming industry too?!
The iPad’s luscious screen paired with the relatively low development cost of creating gaming apps has meant that a whole host of superb games are now available for less money than it costs to buy a portion of fish and chips!
While heavyweight developers like EA do a roaring trade selling iPad games, the App Store is also proving a great place for indie developers to showcase their talents too. From hardcore horror adventures like Dead Space to cutesy casual titles like Cut the Rope HD, there’s something for everyone when it comes to gaming on Apple’s tablet.
But with hundreds of games on offer, it can be difficult to know what’s best to spend your hard earned cash on.
To help you on your quest for app-gaming enlightenment, Tech Digest present our Top 50 iPad Gaming Apps run-down! Listed in alphabetical order, grabbing any of the 50 games featured below will guarantee you hours of gaming bliss. Enjoy!

Controlled with just the flick of a finger, you'll spend hours trying to perfect each stage, and love every minute of it. (£2.99,Grab it here )
