The iPad Quality Index boasts over 75,000 reviews from websites like 148Apps, Pocket Gamer, and Gamezebo, and uses a unique metric to create a single definitive score for each iPad title.
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 HD. 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.

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.
