Best iPad Games 2014
Looking for the best iPad games to download from the App Store this Christmas? Whether you've recently picked up an iPad Air 2 or iPad mini 3, here's a run down of the best games you can download for your flash smartphone.
It seems like only yesterday Steve Jobs unveiled iPad – the device many unfairly labelled as “just a big iPhone” - to the world, but the last five years have seen Apple's tablet become part of the furniture in many households.

Especially for gamers. Though iPad taps into the same App Store that's been powering the iPhone since 2008, Apple's iPad has always been a favourite with developers thanks to its larger screen; the more room a touchscreen device has to accommodate your fingers and thumbs without obscuring the action, the better.
As such, the last few years have seen iPad play host to only premium versions of iPhone games, but also an increasing selection of iPad-only games. That may be welcome news for gamers both rich in time and money, but for the more discerning consumer, navigating through the App Store to find iPad's prime picks is becoming harder and harder.
It would be handy, then, if a site like TrustedReviews would take the time to put together a list of the games that demonstrate tablet gaming at its finest, wouldn't it? We thought so too, which is why we invite you to click through the next ten pages, pick your favourites and head on over to the App Store to start downloading.
