Is there a way to remove the top status bar when playing IPhone games on a iPad?

Is there a way to remove the top status bar (wifi/time/battery) when playing IPhone games on the iPad? My mother who uses a IPad 2 recently purchased the Big Fish match-3 four pack bundle for iPhone and the status bar obstructs a tiny portion of the top part of the display. Thanks for any help you can give.

Not universal but it does say IPad compatability in the description. Big Fish offer other bundles although not a IPad version of this one (match-3 bonanza bundle) from what I could see on the App Store. Some of the games in this bundle have a IPad HD version but their not offered together yet.

Thanks for replying, it just seems strange to me that Apple tablets don't have a simple way to turn on/off the status bar for iPhone games in the settings section when playing on a tablet. Maybe it's just a issue with the non-retina display iPads since I play Redshift's The Quest on the Air and never noticed a very tiny portion of the top cut off.
