 IPAD NEWS

Retina display-ready games for the launch of the new iPad

Eye Candy

Product: Third-generation iPad | Manufacturer: Apple
 
Third-generation iPad iPad, thumbnail 1
Everyone's been a little bit excited over the last few days here at Pocket Gamer Towers.

The new iPad is heading our way
and will soon be in our cherishing, grubby mitts. Several of our writers have just this morning declared that it is "one more sleep till iPad day" and the optimistic, younger ones have already put out a glass of sherry and mince pie for Apple-claus.

But above all of the hubbub and girlish squeals about the Retina display, one important question remains: what games can we play that can really make the new screen shine?

Charitable as we are, Pocket Gamer has put together a list of Retina display-ready, or soon to be updated, apps for your delicious new device.

Click any of the games mentioned to be taken directly to the App Store to buy and/or download.

If you know or have a game ready for the new iPad's Retina display that isn't on our list, then do drop us a line in the comments section below. We'll be updating the list as we get them. 

Updated for Retina display on the new iPad:

Asphalt 6: Adrenaline
Constant HD
Dave vs Cave
Flight Control Rocket
Foosball HD

Galaxy on Fire 2 HD
Gangstar Rio: City of Saints
Infinity Blade II
Joining Hands

We just wanted to let you guys know that 'Aiko Island HD' and 'Aiko Island: Holidays HD', latest update include support for the new iPads Retina screen.

Luckily we always draw everything a million times bigger than we ever will need it, so accommodating the ridiculous resolution of the new iPad wasn't too hard.

Here are links to screenshots of the game before and after the iPad retina update.

We have also made the game Universal, but also included iCloud support. Which allows you to seamlessly switch between the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch without ever having to restart your game.

The update has already been submitted to Apple and we expect it to be available in no more than a few days.
