Critically acclaimed

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 No DPad, 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?

A true gem

Bringing one of the most popular puzzle franchises ever created back to the top of the iPad Qi chart this week is renowned mobile game developer PopCap.

The braaains behind Plants vs Zombies HD has taken its cross-platform sensation Bejeweled and given it a high-definition facelift, meaning owners of the new iPad will be able to match-three on their scorching Retina displays.

Also, if you want a break from the classic gameplay, you can go digging for precious minerals in Diamond Mine mode or save ex-caterpillars in Butterfly mode.

Alternatively, if you just want to chill out and match gems without any time restrictions, Zen mode's leisurely pace and ambient soundtrack will help you swipe your cares away.

Slide To Play's reviewer found Bejeweled HD's visual upgrade a thing of beauty, promising that it will "astonish new iPad owners everywhere".

Magic moments

Meanwhile, rocketing into the top of the iPad Qi net this week is First Touch's football nostalgia game Score! Classic Goals.

As the incredibly literal title implies, the game reproduces a selection of the most significant - or simply downright gorgeous - goals in the history of international football.

First, you play through the setup to the goal, tracing the intended path of the ball with your finger. Then, when it's time to put it away, just recreate the ball's original arc and watch as destiny takes its course.

Accuracy is key, so you'll have to make sure you mirror the real-world goal perfectly if you want all three stars in your trophy cabinet.

The folks over at 148Apps were cheering on Score! Classic Goals from the touchline, deeming it "a very responsive and very enjoyable experience".

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