Whale Trail 69p

A trippy Tiny Wings-style side scroller with a soundtrack by Gruff Rhys  – what's not to like? It's iPhone game of the week on iTunes but you'll appreciate flying through the psychadelic rainbows and clouds more on your iPad's big screen.

RoboFonics £1.49

Got rhythm? If you're shaking your head out of time to my question, get out – everyone else should love this assembly line game populated by cute Wall-E style 'bots. It features 80 levels in which your weapons against the big boss MasterBotrix are nothing more violent than rhythm and melody.
