I dont know if all of these are compatible with the iPad 3, maybe check the app description or the thread?

-Horizon Chase
-Wayward Souls
-Super Hexagon
-The Executive

I tried to include different genres since I dont know which ones you prefer.

There are some good choices there.

I'd add to that:
Infinity Blade 1, 2 or 3 (each is better than the last)
Plants vs Zombies
The Impossible Road

Junk Jack X is a good choice if you like that that kind of genre, I personally coukdnt see the fuss but it's one of my fave games ever now. Regular free updates with loads of new content. Can't wait til it comes to steam

Wayward souls. I didn't take to it, I wanted to love it and it and was the first game if that genre I tried, just not for me but I can easily see why many love it and it's worth every but of praise it gets.

Monument Valley

What's your usual favourite type to play? One of the great things about ios is the games are cheap and there's a great variety. For. Short burst games, things like
Tiny Wings.
Altos Adventure.

There's also some decent ones among the free to play, like Crossy Road.

Neon Shadow (There's a free version that has the 'Zero' subtitle)
Mines Of Mars (Same case as with Neon Shadow)
Space Marshals
Deus Ex: The Fall
Lost Echo
Skulls Of The Shogun
80 Days
Out There
Wayward Souls
Storm Casters Ultra
Hunters 2
Heroes & Castles 2

And I think that that is a really solid list of must haves for iOS
