I don't think that's fair to assume.

If I were a developer, though, I think I would rush to update my games..especially games that were originally made for the older iPhone models. Maybe relaunch the game and get some more mileage out of it.

Developers on these very forums have given each of those examples as excuses as to why they're not updating the game to iPad Retina. We will see far fewer older games updated to Retina than we all hope and fewer new releases than we anticipate going Retina. File size is probably the biggest issue...folks around here irrationally abhor large apps.

Blot. Recommended Jetpack-Joyride-like endless flyer. There are IAPs but you don't need 'em and grinding is fun for pretty a while.

Original resolution and size, iPad 3rd gen.:

Was mentioned before: Tower Madness. Very good classic and pure tower defense game without any distractions like tap tap collecting coins or shooting down items of the surroundings. There are IAPs but a lot of free content anyway. Free right now.

Sorry for the previous posting. I made a mistake with the huge image. And now I can't reach the "Edit" button in Safari. Please delete. Here is the correct posting:

Was already mentioned before: Muffin Knight. Got it when it was free and it's a pretty fun platformer with lots of combats. Can't tell anything about the IAPs, anyone?

Ninjas vs Vikings HD. Got it when it was free for some hours. Mixture of Angry Birds and (most of) Fruit Ninja. There is really not much difference between retina and non-retina, the flying objects (here the vikings) are a bit crisper:

Smoody HD is a recommended physics puzzler. And it's FREE right now!

I just got my iPad 3 yesterday so, I appreciate this thread! Would be nice if the first post was updated though. Before I got my iPad 3, I wasn't sure there would be that much of a discernable difference in graphics but there really is!! Real Racing 2 HD looks insane on my new iPad!! I am very glad I upgraded to the new iPad and the new 1 gig of Ram definitely helps too!
