    I'm not much of a gamer, but do spend some time on them occasionally.

    Does anyone have any game(s) to recommend with take advantage of the IPP's larger screen and increased processing power?

    Totally agree with XCOM: Enemy Within. Been playing it all week on my iPP. Just finished the Newfoundland fishing village mission last night. :)

    I don't have an iPad Pro, but the best game ever (to me) is Smash Hit.
    Give it a try.

    I don't have a Pro either, but Transistor just updated for it last month. Looks great on my 6S Plus, so should be even better on there. ;)

    I've just downloaded Xcom based on your advice...

    Been continuing off Bastion from the iPad Mini 2 I had and it's pretty fantastic on the iPad Pro. Going to go for Transistor after finishing it

    Vainglory is pretty great. Almost feels like cheating because you can target much more precisely on the large screen ;-)

    Other games I've been playing on my iPP...

    Real Racing 3: looks great and smooth as butter.
    Lara Croft Go: good game, sound is good on the iPP speakers.
    Last Horizon: it translates well to the big screen
    Star Wars Heroes: graphics leave a bit to be desired on the big screen, but still fun ;-)

    I just downloaded The Room on the iPad Pro. The graphics look great on the larger screen.

    FTL: Not the most amazing graphics but stylized, one of my favorite games excellent with touch.
    Hearthstone: Again not 3D but beautiful art style and lots of depth.
    Next on my list will be XCOM

    Smash Hit is amazing on the iPad Pro. Coupled with the excellent speakers on the iPP it really creates an amazing environment. And there is something very satisfying about smashing virtual glass objects.

    I bought the Nimbus controller the other day, makes gaming more comfortable. I will not say it would be more immersive BUT I am tired of steering driving games tilting the IPP. It isn't heavy but it wears on me so RR3 for one is more enjoyable and I can keep the IPP mounted on a stand and obviously further away than holding it arms distance.

    I have a list for supported games with the controller and I have been interested in Bastion so I will give it a whirl. Pac Man lite is fun, I keep uninstalling and downloading it again for kicks.

    The developer needs to get Canabalt HD ported over from Android.

    I am disappointed that Bioshock hasn't been re-released to the App Store yet (I hope it does eventually!) as that would be good. I have been enjoying some RPGs such as Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition, Avadon 2 from Spiderweb Games, and so on. I think it is still early to expect anything revolutionary, since we already have gorgeous Retina graphics ...

    Yes, ported RPGs like Baldur's Gate and Icewind Dale I think would be good candidates for the IPP's big screen, even if the games are playing in scaled resolution. FTL. iOS Board games as well.

    Hitman Sniper is on sale so I tried it, pretty fun stuff and not easy to get through some of the missions. Graphics on the Pro make the experience better.

    Looking for some new additions or essential must have games for the iPP.

    I really enjoyed Lifeline on my phone as it was fantastic. Any other must have, essential iPP downloads?
