Some developers have been taking advantage of our upcoming iPad games forum to post early screens of their coming iPad games. As we said during our GDC podcast, iPad gaming is going to launch with a bang, and this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Here are a few of the early screens that caught our eye. (Click on images for iPad sized screens).

Gameprom's Pinball Games are coming to the iPad. Just when you thought you might have gotten tired of pinball gaming, this screenshot of the iPad version of The Deep has us excited to play these again with the extra real estate provided by Apple's tablet-sized device.

Revolutionary Concepts, makes of Cobra Command posted screens of their upcoming iPad and iPhone game Frogman. Essentially, Frogger in 3D, we'll have a closer hands on look of the iPhone version very shortly.

Finally, fan favorite iBlast Moki is also getting the iPad treatment with extra breathing room with the larger screen size.

    Oh my gosh, The Deep is so beautiful! :)

      The deep looks really cool. I love the graphics. Frogman however looks a bit cheezy.

    The Deep would probably be the first app I'd buy if I owned an iPad.

      I wonder how long before Apple comes out with a super powerful, mega gaming ipad for all the crazy gaming fanatics? Probably cost about $3000.

    It takes a brave developer to aim for launch day without having hardware in hand to test on! Best of luck to these intrepid souls.

    I would have thought to show pinball in portrait orientation, but in realistic perspective like that, landscape mode looks perfect after all.

    • SalsaMD

      wrt The Deep. The dev will not launch the ipad version until he has the hardware to test. And, being in Kiev, it may be a little while after April 3. See discussion in thread:

    Ah yes, the iPad. Like an iPhone, only without phone or camera, like an iPod, only less portable, like a laptop, only a lot weaker, like an e-book, only controlled by Apple...
    All in all: EPIC FAIL

    • http://www.retromaccast.com James

      You're exactly right -- who in their right mind would be such a piece of crippled junk. You forgot to mention no flash, removable battery, card slots, optical drive. What is that? They've already sold a few hundred thousand and possibly many more than that? Well they might have something after all. Good thing I ordered mine for delivery on April 3rd.

      • spiffyone

        Although I'm not one to state it will be a failure, I will state that it will not sell to the level that the iPhone/touch platform did during that first year, and will wind up nothing more than a pretty successful niche product. iPad is not the "fourth pillar" Apple thinks it will be. A refocused AppleTV however....

    • Constable Odo

      The EPIC FAIL is guaranteed to be a 5 million unit seller for 2010. If you have to fail, then fail big. No youngster is going to let their parents walk out of the Apple store without getting them an iPad.

    The Deep looks gorgeous! I'll be getting it as soon as it's released for sure. Hopefully by that time I already have an iPad!

    Problem is; it sounds to me as if these are going to be completely seperate iPad versions rather than iPad functionality added to the iPhone versions. Apple better come up with some better way to manage the apps in iTunes that takes this problem into account. And some better way to manage save game (for example) data (hard enough with just one, let alone syncing two completely different apps!)

    really though, frogger in 3d was amazing. You know, frogger 3d. I think I played the second one and it rocked my socks off.

    Also the iPad is an epic fail for a reason: for less than the price of 2 iPads you can have an MacBook. It would be very self-dividing of them to make the iPad compete feature-wise with a huge seller for them like that.

    Yeah the IPAD HAS BEEN AN EPIC FAIL...

    FIRST DAY SALES 120,000 UNITS...PRICE 499 TO 699.

    75,000 MILLION+ IN 1 DAY.

    Project Sales by the end of 2010 - OVER 4,000,000 units sold worldwide.

    4,000,000 x 499 to 699 a piece...

    You Do The Math.

    If only netbooks and macbooks could of EPICALLY FAILED with those kind of first year numbers.

    Morons!!!!! LOL
