Top 5 Sequels on iPad

Best ways to get a second helping on iPad

When making sequels, some game designers seem to stick to the old adage: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".

While there's nothing wrong with this approach, other devs like to aim a little higher, drawing inspiration from another well-known saying: "If it ain't broke, don't fix it, but, like, feel free to make it better and throw in some different grenades and that."

Today, we pay tribute to the games that climbed beyond their predecessors to reach the summit of Mount Awesome, as we bring you the Top 5 sequels on iPad.

We hope you like the number '2', because you're about to get a raging case of sequelitis.

The follow-up to Azkend did what every good sequel should do: recapture the essence of the original, and then improve upon it. Keeping the match-three puzzle gameplay intact, 10tons added a more expansive story and some top-notch visuals to take the franchise to the next level... with chart-topping results.

Luckily, Godzilab brings the 'boom' in style, constructing another high-quality vehicle filled with physics-puzzling entertainment.

While Chair's successor to the ridiculously successful Infinity Blade didn't reforge the sword, as such, it did a fine job of polishing the steel and sharpening the edge. A gorgeous game in its own right, and still one of the technical and graphical benchmarks for gaming on the iPad.

Reckless Racing was an excellent racing game, proving that top-down racers could fit comfortably into the touchscreen mould. The sequel shattered that mould with its unbridled excellence, quickly becoming one of the most revered pocket racers ever made. Take it for a test drive - you won't be disappointed.

Inspired by big-budget sci-fi franchises like Halo and Crysis, this third entry in the N.O.V.A. series sees protagonist Kal Wardin holding back the alien menace on a now-depopulated earth. With more focus on the single-player campaign, this should keep FPS fanatics plenty occupied until the next entry.
