The New iPad Retina Display Game Thread!


This thread is a work in progress!
NOTE: This thread does not contain games wich are optimized for the ipad 3. For example Infinity blade 2 and epoch are optimised for the ipad 3, but not for the retina display. Therefore those are not retina games.
NOTE 2:I cannot test all these games myself but can test some.
Get these games at your own risc. it may not look as beautiful as other games(like real racing 2 wich is IMO best graphics game now on ipad 3)

epic tweeted IBII would get an update to support retina display

Also while not confirmed games from EA (Dead Space), Firemint (Real Racing 2), Popcap (Plants vs Zombies) will get a retina display support sooner or later. Those are given.

Touchgrind BMX, Foosball HD and Labyrinth 2 HD updates confirmed on TA's news page - http://toucharcade.com/2012/03/14/il...d-ready-games/

Not sure when these updates are coming though. The article is phrased as if these updates are already out, but that's not the case.
