Default iPad games + me (need suggestions)

Okay, I have finally bought myself an ipad! I got the new 32gb retina A6X one. I have done a few searches trying to find games that are EXCLUSIVE to iPad. I have tons of games on my iphone that I can now share with my ipad but I want to know peoples opinions on the BEST games that are out for ipad that are NOT available for my iphone! Something thats totally crazy as far as graphics. Arcade / RPG / Sports....whatever! I remember hearing and reading about the Baldur's Gate which hasnt come out but there has to be something I have unlocked by equiping myself with an ipad! What are the TA Best of the BEST??

Baldur's gate was out but has been pulled.
Off the top of my head:
-Frozen Synapse
-Kotor (Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic)
-Hero of Many
-Battle Academy

For RPGs, the Spiderweb games: Avadon, and the two Avernums.
Baldur's Gate, if/when it comes back.
Spiral EP1.
Crow, Lily: Don't know if they are iPad-only, though; but would guess so from the graphics and setup.

If you like TD games try March on Oz and Go home dinosaurs..If you fancy RTS type of games try great battles medieval..If you're interested in deep board games check-out Eclipse:New Dawn for the galaxy..

These games are iPad exclusive games I believe..

Thanks all! Just bought March on Oz. Looks really good. Some of the others I actually have for my iphone 4S and I refuse to buy them AGAIN just to get their ipad version

Pretty much all universal games (or games with separate iPhone and iPad versions) play better on the iPad than the iPhone/iPod, so recommending good titles from that side of things would take forever. As for iPad-only games, that depends on your tastes, but below are a few of the many good ones:

Alien Frontiers
Forbidden Island
Ghost Stories
Small World
Eclipse
Kingdom Builder
Yggdrasil
Ticket to Ride
(the separate iPhone-native Ticket to Ride Pocket is a stripped-down, lower-quality version of the full-featured iPad game)
Bang! HD
Knights of the Old Republic
Aquaria
(a PC port that is far and away the best "Metroidvania" title currently available on iOS)

I actually recommend march on Oz to those who are waiting for plants vs zombies 2..Im very skeptical about PvZ 2 since almost all the devs of the original game was kicked off the project,EA is publishing it and the F2P model..

@ Appletini -The reason I say ipad EXCLUSIVE games is because I am a regular TA app user so I ALWAYS see all the releases for iphone (or universal). But since ive never owned an ipad, ive never paid attention to those "only available on ipad" titles

In addition to the great titles already named, I'll throw these out there.

Avadon: The Black Fortress
Avernum: Escape from the Pit
Avernum 6
Battle of the Bulge
Brogue
Coastal Command
Companions
Gratuitous Space Battles
Imperium Galactica 2
Machinarium
Mutant Storm
Puerto Rico
SpaceChem Mobile
Vendetta Online

I believe there are a bunch of other good strategy and board games that are iPad only but I can't think of any right now...
