Works Great:
Dungeon Defenders: 2nd Wave
NBA Jam
Aralon HD
SF IV
The Bards Tale
Samurai II

Works Ok:
Space Miner

Non Working:
Galaxy on Fire 2 (I can't get this to work however the first day it worked fine!)
Another one to get NBA to work "great". How can you play this its got a floating pad, running right is hard, unless u go left first and rotate round. I wouldnt say thats great.

also cheers for more games

Well, Ive been messing around with things a little bit more and here are my results.

Working
Bike Baron
The Blocks Cometh
Super Crate Box (profile override)
Zombieville USA
Zombieville USA 2
Sonic CD
Jetpack Joyride
Pinball HD Collection
Tetris

Not Working
Hookworld
Super Quickhook
OMG! Pirates
Mage Gauntlet (everything maps to down-left)
Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 HD
Street Fighter IV
Street Fighter 4 Volt

I decided to try the regular Street Fighter IV after having no luck with Volt, but I get the same results. Nothing seems to be working. I will not give up however, if only due to the fact that it seems to be working for everyone else, and it is even the game used in the demo video. Definitely not an easy one to troubleshoot. At first I thought maybe the problem was because it is an iphone app, but I have other iphone apps working fine. Also, UMK3 HD is an ipad specific app, and that one doesn't work either. Hmmmmmm

I guess I'm looking for someone else to say "Hey, I cant get street fighter to work either" I would like to believe that the problem I'm having is somehow on my end and not the actual blutrol tweak. Ill keep on it, and post my results. Its very hard for me to believe that somehow I am the only one having this issue.

Edit
I got Street Fighter IV to work, but, as suggested by a previous post, the ipad has to be a certain way in landscape mode. If I change the screen orientation in the options for the game, nothing works, no matter what I do in blutrol with flipping and whatnot. Unfortunately, it has to sit on the side with the volume buttons........that's right, when I set it that way it turns the volume all the way down. At least I did get it working, so Im half way there. Hopefully this is something they will address in the next update for blutrol. Going to try Volt now. Oh yeah, I'm also going to try messing with Mortal Kombat too

A lot of the games are like that, just slide the iPad partway off the icade so the buttons aren't covered. Not a huge deal IMO. Sticking some thin rubber on the ends of the groove so that the buttons won't be pressed may also be a solution worth looking into.

Works Great:
Bike Baron
Capcom Arcade (Street Fighter Series, Ghosts/Ghouls and Goblins and Magic Sword all work, 1942/1943 do not)
Dark Void Zero (has to have the screen flipped from the options menu)

Works Ok:
Hero of Sparta 2 (not a floating dpad but it has that issue where it needs two inputs before it starts to recognize them)
Dungeon Hunter 2 (same thing)

Not Working:
Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3
Mage Gauntlet (same as above everything maps to down left)
Knight's Rush (nothing works)
Space Invaders Infinity Gene (no dpad option)

I've found a simple solution for games that require the volume button side down causing the iPad to turn it's volume all the way up or all the way down, two thin pieces of rubber cut from a piece of weather stripping.

Added some more to the list, and taken some off as its getting huge. Just keeping popular ones on working so people can get a general idea of what works, and therefore what else can work. what doesnt work can be more specific. so leaving them full

Seen a reply on iCP thread on how to get tony hawks 2 working...in a manner of speaking.
PSX4all emulator and tony hawks 2 iso, simple. should have thought of that before.
I know the whole dont play with roms/isos you dont own, but I would have thought that if you own the iphone app, you can play an iso of the same game...right?

Wait, so you are taking off working games from the list? So do we need another thread that is the "official" working list or is there something I'm not understanding? Isn't the point of doing this to have a one-stop-shop to find the games you are looking for and see if they are compatible?

The list could go on forever and ever - I would expect 70% of ios games to work with it. Do we really want 70% of the iOS library showing up in the first post or a load of popular ones so people get the idea and then ones that have issues or dont work so that people know about them

I can add Pizza Boy (really fun Mario clone) and Skater Nation (surprisingly decent Tony Hawk clone) to the list as games that work really well.

Beware Skater Nation though, it is a complete pain in the ass. 1. You have to manually flip the orientation every time you play by clicking and unblocking the auto orientation button in options to get it to register right. 2. There is no multi tasking, so you REALLY have to do it every time you play and 3. It takes forever to get a game going through the opening movie and load times. Maybe it bugs other people less then me, but after the 4th time while I was figuring out the orientation I just about deleted the app. I don't know if that should eliminate it from the "works really well" list though, once you do all that it plays great (despite the floating d-pad).
