Whether you’re an 8-bit arcade fan from back in the day, or looking for a new game for your kids, here are some great new iPad games to conquer.

Conquist ($.99 limited time)

If you’ve played Risk, you’ve played Conquist (99 cents), an addictive iPad-only game that will keep you riveted for weeks to come. The newest update brings new maps — including ones for the USA and Europe– and offers a compelling six-player mode that turns your iPad into a fixed game board. No need to pass it around, just play and conquer the world. A turbo mode can be enabled to speed things up, while the game rules can be tweaked prior to each round. Also, the lush graphics are a treat.

The Incident ($1.99)

Super-cool 8-bit pixel art combines with a retro soundtrack and unique “dodge falling objects or die” to bring you a one-of-a-kind gaming experience for your iPad. The Incident ($1.99) will challenge you to explore seven awesome levels, tilting your iPad left and right while jumping to avoid falling items. You can grab power ups (and downs!) The incident is great when you have a minute or an hour to play, and the attention to detail is evident in every aspect of the title.

Mooncake HD ($.99)

Do your kids like cake? Of course they do. Mooncake HD (99 cents) is a sweet little gem of a game will challenge them to slide quarter-slices of Moon Cake onto the plates of the Moon Rabbit or Lion. The rabbit only enjoys matching slices of cake, while the Lion, well, he’ll devour anything. Your kids will love the soundtrack of the game, while concentrating on getting similar slices of cake on the right plates.

Spirit HD ($2.99)

Here’s a new iPad-enhanced title that combines intense game play with fantastic visual effects, topped off with controls anyone can learn but will struggle to master. In Spirit HD ($2.99) you take control of a small neon ghost who’s on a mission to encircle, trap, and transport wave after wave of baddies into another dimension. As you progress, concentrate on trapping multiple enemies simultaneously to build up your chain score. Those who enjoyed Geometry Wars will love this kid-friendly title, which takes full advantage of your iPad’s insanely great graphical bones.
