Ok looking for some new iPad games, what are some of your favourites and how are the ports of some of the high profile console and pc games.

I've been enjoying a lot of the board game ports recently, I'm primarily a video gamer (mainly PC, I also own PS3, 3DS and 360) but have recently started playing d&d and getting into board gaming.

For reference here are some of my favourites on the iPad.

1. Ascension: Chronicles of the Godslayer

2. Rayman Run

3. Cook, Serve, Delicious!

4. Chrono Trigger

5. Little Inferno

6. Sword and Sworcery

7. Eclipse

8. Year Walk

9. Secret of Mana

10. Agricola

I also like 10000000, Ridiculous Fishing, Le Havre, Space Team, 868-Hack and I recently bought Incredipede and Terraria

What is consensus on ports of XCOM, Kotor, World of Goo, Bastion, Machinarium and Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes.

I've also heard (from board gamers) that Dominant Species, Caylus, Kingdom Builder, Yggdrasil, Pandemic, Nightfall and Small World are great board game ports.

Hopefully this is helpful for fellow iPad gamers and hopefully I get some helpful responces.

You've listed most of my favourites, but you're missing Tiny Wings, Fruit Ninja, Cut the Rope and Flight Control. Chances are you've played 'em already but no iOS device is complete without those games.

Also, I highly recommend Beat Sneak Bandit, Zen Puzzle Garden, Game Dev Story and OLO.

Machinarium is probably fine on the iPad.

The World of Goo port is phenomenal. The Bastion port not so much (though it's still worth playing if iOS is your only option).

I'm pretty into Pocket Trains right now.

Bad Piggies is pretty cool too.

I also had a lot of fun with the iPad version of Euphloria.
