The 18 Games That Actually Use the iPad's Fancy New ScreenS

The new iPad is faster than its predecessor, sure, but the main selling point is its glorious retina display. Problem is, nearly every game on the App Store was designed for the previous models, meaning they're not exactly making the most of that 2048 x 1536 resolution.

Some developers, though, were either ready for the upgrade or have reacted very quickly, and so at time of posting there are a few games that will actually show at the iPad's new, higher resolution.

Those games are:

Infinity Blade II, $6.99
Sky Gamblers: Air Supremacy, $4.99
Galaxy on Fire 2 HD, $9.99
Mass Effect Infiltrator, $6.99
Flight Control Rocket, 99¢
Real Racing 2 HD, $2.99
Foosball HD, $2.99
Touchgrind BMX, $4.99
Labyrinth 2 HD, $7.99 / Lite Version
Joining Hands, $2.99
Woodroid HD+, Free
Letris Power, Free
Monsters Ate My Condo, 99¢
Save the Pencil HD, 99¢ / Lite Version
Tractor Beam, 99¢
FMX Riders, $2.99
Lab Solitaire, 99¢
Parlour Solitaire, Free

Sure, some of those are junk, but those titles at the top are some of the best available for the platform, so it's nice seeing them already taken care of.

To see an example of the difference, here's Epic's Infinity Blade running on both the new iPad and its predecessor.
