The iPad Quality Index boasts over 40,000 reviews from websites like 148Apps, Pocket Gamer, and IGN, and uses a unique metric to create a single definitive score for each iPad title.
As we all know, there are few things about which the internet gets more excited than cats. Well, it would seem that iPad game critics are just as prone to feline fascination, for match-three puzzler Kitten Sanctuary is perched cutely atop April's iPad Qi gaming chart.
If you're more of a dungeon dweller than a pet lover, however, you might want to test your questing mettle in Spiderweb's highly rated retro RPG Avernum: Escape From the Pit HD.
Alternatively, for those who find themselves hypnotised by their own washing machines, the third-placed Spin Up offers a critically lauded dose of cylindrical mayhem, which is guaranteed to get your brains - and your stomach - churning.

N.B. While we only display the average score to one decimal place, the list is generated to further significant figures. We just don't show them all.
And, naturally, this is a static graph based on live listings which are subject to constant change as new releases and reviews emerge.
In order to provide a regular marker of the critical zeitgeist, however, we will continue to round up the best of the iPad games released each month to provide the definitive Quality Index top ten.
