There’s only one thing we enjoy more than a quality iPhone game updated for the iPad, and that’s a quality, free game for the iPad. That’s exactly what dropped into our inbox with the announcement that the excellent Compression for iPhone is now available on the iPad as Compression HD.
The game plays like a sadistic version of Tetris using the same matching of falling colored blocks but with the added dimension of the walls closing in on you - after every three blocks that fall! This unique feature adds even more excitement to a very addictive game that makes full use of the iPad’s screen with beautiful textures and colors. The game also features an ominous yet immersive soundtrack and OpenFeint compatibility.
Compression is a prime example of simple but effective game design for the iPhone and iPad and the fact that the HD version is available for free is the icing on an already delicious cake.
