    iOS games are designed for the touch screen on your phone/pod/pad.

    the whole user interaction is different, So highly doubtful they would just work.

    I was more so thinking games that already have mfi controller support (since i believe the tv will be able to connect to those).

    I'd like to know this too. Obviously iOS games are built around touch but with games that support the mfi controller, surely all they need to do is make the menus controllable with remote?

    Which could,be as simple as swipe up/down/left/right to each touchable menu element and tap to select?

    That would certainly fit for Crossy road that they demoed.
