Lack of iPad games

Hopefully by this summer there will be many more games for the iPad!

The iPad app store feels empty.

I'd like to see more "Universal" apps. It's not right charging triple the price for nothing new.

Anyways there are what 20 maybe 30 "Quality" games for the iPad. Most are priced way too high from what were used to in the app store.

many of them are essentially the same thing as the iPhone versions, without much new content. I find very few of them to be worth their prices.
also there's very little discussion on iPad games..guess no one has an iPad

Only two games that stand out in my mind that's worth $5 on the iPad.

Cogs and Minigore.

They both come with all DLC from the iPhone versions and Minigore has the new snow effect.

yeah. i got Harbor Master HD (free!) and it is amazing. but its also cool seeing how slow it was to play games on the ipod, but its silky smooth on an ipad!

Even though i don't own an iPad myself (been going to the apple stores, playing on them for hours daily!) i LOVE Touchgrind HD. That is the type of game i wanted on the iphone version, but it was obviously not possible.

I like Minigore for unlocking the characters...the HD version isn't that fun now that Sensei is unlocked

A quick post that i chuckled a bit at in the Lounge.

Sensei isn't unlocked on the iPad version.
