The new Need for Speed is amazing, it just came out, iPhone 5/iTouch 5 support. Truly amazing and worth the 7 bucks. Also that free punching/runner game is sick. Also 1136x960 support

I suppose you mean top games for the iTouch

Recommend the following:
Infinity Blade 2 (Not sure if updated for the 4" display)
Plants vs Zombies (WARNING: HIGHLY ADDICTIVE)
Fruit Ninja
Death Rally
Temple Run (free!)
Angry birds/seasons/Rio/Star Wars (coming soon)

I constantly checked and Angry bird series have not been optimized for 4 inch.

I think angry bird star wars will released both for 3.5 and 4.0. Fruit Ninja is still 3.5. Jetpack is another good game and fully optimized for Touch 5 already. They probably wont adjust for Infinity blade because the game is quite graphic heavy. Maybe wait for part 3.

King of fighter i 2012 will not adjust as well, i think. Little sad that you have to play 3.5 games on 4.0 screen. Why dont Apple just enlarge the screen but keep the same ratio????

1) Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor (Free because it's Apple's app of the week) It's excellent.
1) Swordigo
2) Anodia

Not sure if you're into RPGs but the game Lili has amazing graphics and definitely takes advantage of the retina display, the screen size and power of the new ipod touch. The graphics are almost "xbox 360" quality.

If you like Sci-Fi and cover shooters I'd say Mass Effect Infiltrator. Just make sure you turn off Tap to Aim in the options, and it'll give you some decent freedom of run-&-gun movement.

Depends on what games you like really.

Not sure. But if they add "Survival-Endless" mode, I'll be a very happy man.

The Spider game is unusual - really cool and a lot of fun.

Am downloading Lilli atm to see what it's like.

If you can stand the controls I say get FFT: War of the Lions. Also The World Ends With You is a game I think EVERYONE should play at least once.

While it's not optimized and probably never wil be...Space Miner is awesome.

I second Swordigo. Also not optimzed but will be soon according to devs.

Epoch is optimized and fun. Beyond Ynth as well.

Jump Birdy Jump.

Rayman Jungle Run.

The only "sports" game I really like is Flick Home Run. Great time waster, and a perfect game for a touch screen.
