A7 optimized apps and games

So I just recently upgraded from my Ipad 3 to a Retina Mini (not Air because I got tired of lugging a laptop bag everywhere) and I was wondering what apps or games best utilize the A7 chipset? I know there are a ton of posts on the net but the best source of user opinion is still at forums like this.

IB3
EPOCH.2
Anomaly 2

EPOCH.2 is my alltime favorite iOS game to date. Touch controls perfectly tailored for the touchscreen, wicked visuals and sound effects, wide variety of loadouts that change the player's strategies, and a fast paced action on a scifi robot apocalypse setting.

I bought IB3 a while back and I'm reinstalling it now with a bunch of stuff that were nigh unplayable on my Ipad3 (like Modern Combat 4). Also found that GTA SA was a lot prettier as well as easier to play. Was stuck on the Wu Zi Mu quest for a long time but after shifting to the Retina Mini, I finished it in one try...

What about racing games? I'm curious about Ridge Racer Slipstream since I played the hell out of the PSP version back in '06. Is it any good and would it make for a good display piece for my Mini?
