Every week, Pocket Gamer sister site iPad Quality Index (iPad Qi) highlights the newest games to make a critical splash in the cool, seductive waters of the iPad pool.

Grabbing scores and opinions from all corners of the web, including from 148Apps, AppGamer, and Gamezebo, Qi answers all your iPad-related questions before you've even asked them.

Today, we're going to focus on two new contenders vying to be crowned king of your iPad. Both are worthy, but do they have what it takes to win your head, your heart, and your wallet?

Playing your cards right

Dealing itself straight into this week's iPad Qi Top 10 is enchanting deck-building sequel Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013.

Bringing the immensely successful card game series up to date (and slightly into the future, actually), this edition from Wizards of the Coast introduces the all-new Planechase multiplayer feature.

By drawing Plane cards, you can alter the rules of the game universe, making constant tactical readjustments necessary and keeping everyone involved on their toes.

Of course, the classic Magic Online mode will allow you to trade cards and compete against other players as always. And with ten decks to unlock, there's more than enough spell-casting fun to keep your mana flowing for an age.

Gamezebo's reviewer was immediately enthralled by Magic 2013, and assures iPad owners that picking it up is "something of a no-brainer".

Bushido blade

Meanwhile, streaking silently across the rooftops and into this week's iPad Qi chart is oriental endless-runner GoNinja.

Before your master died, he left you with a momentous task to complete: defeat the demon army responsible for his demise and avenge his death.

The problem is, there are 50,000 possessed samurai between you and spiritual equilibrium. The solution: draw your katana, start sprinting, and don't stop till you're the last ninja standing.

Luckily, there are a host of lethal special abilities to help you on your quest, and even the option to smash through walls and catch your foes unawares.

The folks over at TouchMyApps thought GoNinja deserved an honourable mention, deeming it a "solid example of what the genre is all about".

You can get the up-to-date information about which games are reviewing best over at the iPad Quality Index.
