i think we need more games like shantae's interface on ipad.
i dont think the interface of the game shantae is really good.
well,what I mean is the graphic of shadow gun is really good,but it seems already got the limit of ipad 2.
but sometimes we dont need games to be full screen.
We can leave more space to virtual buttons,hp/mp meter or all other kinds of game information.
even with a smaller graphic as half of full screen on ipad,its still much bigger than iphone,ds and psp.and thus we can get much better graphics.
developers can also divide the ipad to multiple screens for diverse ways to play the game,just like ds have two screens.
how do you think about what i said above? I am really expecting it.

IPad 3 will be out soon enough.

I'm not a fan of artificially "shrinking" a games main play screen to make it run smoothly. I'd rather they develop it properly and take full advantage of the hardware versus the technique you've mentioned.

I've tried it with a few and it's just too distracting.
