are they ones that have been updated for game center in the last hour? if so, have you gone into the updated game? it should pop up with a gamecenter logo saying "welcome back (nickname)"

Initiate mullti-tasking, Close the GameCenter app, Re-open the app.

I am also having this same issue. I have flight control and farmville and have gone in and used these apps. I've closed gamecenter and it shows I have 2 games, but under the game tab after it loads, nothing shows up. I'm thinking gamecenter may just be a little jam packed today with users, probably nothing to worry about.

I just had the same issue.

go to the Real Racing App (or whatever game you want), turn it on, Your going to see a "Welcome User to GameCenter"

Exit, then go to GameCenter and the game should now be their.

I've tried that with both games (flight control and farmvile), has not worked. I'm not too concerned at this point. I'll see what happens tomorrow, and if I have to reinstall 4.1 then I cam try that.

I had that issue until I realized that iTunes/the App Store wasn't actually downloading the updated versions of the games. It took some deleting and re-downloading to get it to download the updated version for me.

You can check the apps version in iTunes by selecting it in the Apps section and then going to File > Get Info (Cmd+I).

Ex. For Flight Control it kept downloading 1.8 when the new version was 1.9. I had the same problem with Enigmo (old version 3.x, New version 4.0).

i get the first screen, however i don't get the second in the app, the games just don't show up there,

and when you say log out of enigmo you just mean leave the app right?

I'm having this problem, also.

EDIT: Just restored my phone (gosh, that's an ordeal) and still nothing showing up in Games tab.

EDIT v 2.0: Woke up and saw there are now games in my games tab.
