* Reiner Knizia's Labyrinth HD <- AWESOME board game
* Carcassonne <- Ditto
* Infinity Blade <- OMFG that's all I can say
* 100 Rogues <- A dungeon crawler with style
* Fruit Ninja HD - <- Downright fun. period
* Lego Harry Potter <-epic scale action adventure. Lots to do - laugh's at the DS price, and looks oh so better on an idevice screen.
* Heroes of kalevala - brilliant - for 3 Match fans who like a challenge. Not your daddy's Bejeweled bore.
* Dungeon Raid - 3 Match with RPG elements - insanely addictive and IMO, more fun and intense then Puzzle Quest but less on the flashiness.
* Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit - very surprised how superb this turned out. Blows the previous attempts away.

Life's too Short for long-Ass Cut Scenes

For Toy Shop Adventures I think it's through IAP you can purchase more episode or stuff to cheat. A good one but perhaps a bit difficult.

For very noteworthy free ipad games there's also :
  • Trundle HD (the paid version is Trundle Unlimited but Trundle HD is a complete game).
  • Tilt for Live HD (Free with IAP but you get a rather complete game for free even if not fully complete)

For iPad Brick Breakers, many iphone only Brick Breakers are cool to play on iPad but to highlight the best with an iPad version, a selection:
  • Circuloid (quite special and very difficult at first because of a special design)
  • Brickadelic (Amazingly beautiful, the more beautiful of all I played on any platform, plus a very nice inventive diversity in levels design)
  • Enchanted Forest (Another special one, focus on complex levels design with multiple intermediate targets)
  • Arkanoid HD (the ancestor of more modern Brick Breaker when its ancestor was Breakout quite more simple in its design that is Arkanoid, becomes a bit old on some points but a level design quality still at the top)
  • Jet Ball HD Premium (Very dynamic, design focus on speed and reflex, more levels to come for free for ipad version)
  • Splash Duel HD (A very special one mixing Brick Breaker and pong with a high range of AI setup allowing adapt it well to your current strength)
  • Meteor HD (A good one, not as top than other in the list but solid and interesting for fans of the genre)
