App Store Top Ten: Week of November 22, 2010

    Rage HD, the fun but somewhat limited on-rails shooter by Doom creator Id, makes its debut on the best selling games list at number three this week. Assassin’s Creed – Altair’s Chronicles hits number nine, due to the double-whammy of a price cut and the recent release of Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood on the consoles. And we realize we’re beating this to death, but it blows our mind that a Angry Birds Halloween continues to sell as Thanksgiving approaches. Check out the rest of the list below.

    #1: Angry Birds

    Our Score: 4/4

    Our Bottom Line: Destructive physics help make this a very charming puzzler, and the great level variety seals the deal.

    #6: Bejeweled 2 + Blitz

    Our Score: 3/4

    Our Bottom Line: Bejeweled 2 is a classic Match-3 game that has proved just as addictive as its original version, though it does not have enough creativity for our top recommendation.

    #9: Assassin’s Creed – Altair’s Chronicles

    Our Score: 2/4

    Our Bottom Line: With no creativity to approaching a level, and some glitches along the way, this Assassin’s Creed is just an ordinary platformer.

    #10: Mad Chad

    Our Score: 3/4

    Our Bottom Line: There’s not much new about Mad Chad, but the variety of enemies and environments raise it above the average Canabalt clone.
