Top Retina Display enabled games

I haven't seen a continuously updated list of high quality retina display enabled games anywhere.

I don't have a ton of games myself, but even among the ones I have, precious few seem to support the Retina Display.

Here are the ones I have that support it:

Babylon Twins
iChess Pro
Chopper 2

That ain't many...

My favorite games that I'm stunned DON'T support retina display:

Geometry Wars Touch
Plants Vs. Zombies
Meteor Blitz
Space Miner
Doodle Jump
Low Grav
Low Grav2
Dark Nebula
NFS Shift
Dirt Moto

I realize most of you already KNOW which games support the Retina Display, but since I'm new to the iPhone in general, and only JUST got the iPhone 4 a couple days ago, I'm very much in the dark.

Any help would be very much appreciated!

There are plenty more, it's just a matter of searching.

Here are some I can think of:

- Splinter Cell: Conviction
- Carnivores
- Real Racing
- Flight Control
- X-Plane 4G
- Nanosaur 2
- Plunderland
- Eliminate: Gun Range
- Jet Car Stunts
- Asphalt 5
- Hero of Sparta 2
- Let's Golf 2
btw, wrong section (a mod will probably move it) and also you might want to update your device info (under your username) now that you have an iPhone 4

Welcome to the forums.

Your first task henceforth is to become intimately acquainted with the search function. With that, you will find other existing threads addressing your question, such as here:


Look also at Pangea, Firemint, and other Gameloft titles.

Thanks to those that have posted. I guess there just aren't hardly any retina enabled games yet.

Actually, this is a good collection of games, and every big game released from now on will most likely support the retina display. Prince of Persia: Warrior Within will support the retina display soon, and I'd assume more Gameloft games will follow, since many have HD iPad versions already.
