20 dollars to spend on iPad Apps/Games - essentials?

What should I get? I know I missed the Easter sale, but oh well.

20 dollars, just got a new iPad. What absolute essentials exist out there for this beauty?

No need for this thread. Read the "What To Get Thread"

Dropped iPhone 6 on live tv. Became a viral sensation.

Sword and sworcery ep
An interesting - if at times confusing - adventure game with great pixel art and music. A totally awesome experience (use headphones)

Plants vs zombies hd
A great tower defense game it is as popular as it is for a reason, and it looks and plays really well on the ipads big screen

Mirrors edge hd
Its got great graphics and really intuitive controls, and feels great when you play it if youre going fast.

World of goo hd
Great puzzle game, lots of fun and quite a few levels, nice art, humourous theme

Asphalt 6 hd
Great arcade racer with pristine graphics, lots of cars and lots of events, its got multiplayer as well but i havent tried it

Reckless racing hd
another racer, its top down with loads of different customisable control options and great graphics. Its really fun but has a limited number of tracks.

Unpleasant horse
Its free just download it and find out for yourself why its so good.

Flight control hd
Its a good casual game but probably not worth the current price wait for a sale

Not sure how many of those $20 will get you but theyre all great games.

I got most of these on sale for one or two dollars, so im recommending them at that price. Im sure theyre still worth the higher price but i recommend you wait for a sale.

If you have a dollar left afterwards get Attack of the mutant sheeps (Msheep hd) its a really simple game but gets crazy hectic and really intense. I always get a real sense of achievement whenever i get. New highscore

tilt to live hd - The best game in the app store imo
labyrinth 2 - a great ball rolling game
infinity blade
galaxy on fire
and if i read it right theres a chance dreamscape will be 1st ipad compatible (if you have the 2 its even better) so save a pound or dollar or whatever for that

DeadSpace console quality is a must buy. Deadspace is the evolution of iphone gaming , excellent graphics, excellent story, and fun gameplay. Polish to the max and shines bright .
