Default Best iPad only or universal games?

Hi. I've had my iPod for a couple of years now and downloaded 500+ games.
I'm looking at getting an iPad soon and wondering whats the best iPad only or universal games I can either buy or redownload when I get an iPad.
Cheers for any suggestions.

You probably already know of these (iPad only) games but I shall compile a list of them anyway!

iPad only games
Aquaria
Autumn Dynasty
Machinarium
Bastion
Magic 2013
The Room
Companions (By smuttlewerk interactive)

Universal games that play better on the iPad
eh..All of them XD

Unlike on the iPhone, you can go through your purchased list of apps in the Appstore on the iPad[they are subcategorized into ipad/iphone games too]...so you can easily find out which of your games are universal.


This is not a game ...but whenever I see someone with a brand new iPad, I will (forcefully)get them to try this

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/planetary/id432462305?mt=8

It is an absolutely gorgeous and novel way to go through your playlist/music collection...but your music files will have to be fully tagged.

Hey there, just to mention that you can browse Purchased apps on the iPhone too, under Updates -> Purchased.

And thanks for the mention of Planetary! It's great

I agree with all but world of goo, it looks terrible on my new ipad. They really need an update for retina ipad graphics on their hd version. I was disappointed by how poorly the hd version looks on my new ipad.
