Meteor Blitz HD is an asteroids-type game that basically takes the formula of dodge and shoot originally found in the game Asteroids and puts it on the iPad. With the release of games like Geometry Wars, there was definitely some stiff competition in the arcade shooter genre. Meteor Blitz for the iPhone redefined our expectations for the Asteroid-style game by integrating some extremely tight controls mixed with addicting gameplay. The game felt ridiculously smooth and that feature has been brought over to the iPad. The game runs extremely well with no lag at all and no load times.

While it may have been tough to fully control the ship in Geometry Wars, Meteor Blitz HD have kept there controls for this version as well. The graphics in the game are extremely clear (except for the menus) rendering the asteroids and ships in great detail. The overall game hasn't changed at all with all of the same environments and upgradeable weapons.

If you bought this for the iPhone previously, there really isn't any reason to grab it for your iPad. If you have yet to try this game out, definitely grab it. It has some excellent gameplay and is well-made. An update to the controls is coming soon so there really isn't much to complain about.
