Default Iphone only?

When a game says iphone only does that mean that the screen does not scale up to the Ipad mini screen size, or does it not play at all? I have read that games that are Ipad only dont even load onto phones. I am interested in the game THE QUEST and all of its expansions but only have an Ipad mini. Can anyone tell me if i am out of luck or if i will just be playing with a small screen in the center?

If a game is a non-universal iPhone game it will not scale to the iPad screen and you will have to use the x2 option to stretch the image size to closer to the iPad screen size. So yes you can play the quest on your mini but the graphics are not going to look the greatest.

You cannot download and use Ipad only app on Iphone at all, but you can download and use Iphone only app on an Ipad. You don't need to do anything out of norm, just download and install as usual. Note: Using Iphone app with 2x zoom mode on an Ipad will result in half decent graphics and this depends on the app/game. Good luck

You can install iPhone apps on an iPad, but not the other way around.
