Word Wonders: The Tower of Babel has made itself clearly heard at the top of the November iPad Qi chart. This intriguing mixture of Scrabble and classic RPG elements is a towering monument to the power of words. Following closely behind in second is Namco Networks's Lazy Raiders, which plays out like an elaborate take on the ball-maze games you find in Christmas crackers and cereal boxes - but with a tongue-in-cheek Indiana Jones vibe. Down in seventh place, we have arguably the highest-profile mash-up of the year in Angry Birds Star Wars. Rovio's familiar physics-puzzler strikes back with lightsabers, force powers, and a pair of hapless droids. In the #9 position, meanwhile, Dream of Pixels turns classic puzzler Tetris on its head and marries its gentle gameplay with a lovely ambient soundtrack. Bliss.
Over in the world of digital applications, Where is my Little Square Bear takes the top honours in Qi's November iPad app chart. It's another of those popular interactive pop-up books for kids, which work so well on modern smartphones. In second place, FR France Travel Magazine provides plenty of travel tips if you're thinking of crossing the Channel for a more exotic Christmas. With beautiful photos, informative writing, and helpful videos, it's a great guide to our Gallic neighbours. Behind it in third place, Scrollshow presents a flashy new way to make presentations. By varying the speeds at which the background elements scroll, this app adds a panoramic effect to your travel albums and product presentations. Down in eighth, meanwhile, Clear Browser lets you view web pages in full-screen glory, with no borders and minimal interface elements getting in the way.
We'll continue to provide an updated listing each and every month, together with a round-up of the year. For all the up-to-date information on which iPad games, apps, and publishers are reviewing best, head on over to the iPad Quality Index now.
