2X Mode On iPad

What iPhone/iPod Touch games look good (and not so blurry) in the iPad's 2X mode?

Basically all of the donut games look great. Try gold miner and rat on run. Also, nodes of yes, frogatto, the quest rpg, and pandemonium is even superior to playing it on iPhone as is pizza boy. Platformers just work great.

Wow, the Donut Games really do look great in 2X mode!

Anyone know of any others?

Anything with pixel art should do OK! And some text-heavy games (like word puzzles) can look great, IF the fonts are rendered at native res.

But the wasted margin around the sides would still bother me. Go for Universal games—they’ll still run on iPhone/iPod, but will take full advantage of the iPad’s screen too.

Why your are looking for it? If do you try for example Time Geeks for iPhone in your iPad you probably tell about it's looks great, but it's because you don't see the iPad version. If you have an iPad: Look for iPad games
