One of the early classic iPhone games PapiJump is now available for the iPad. We first discovered PapiJump back in August, 2008 and found it to be a surprisingly fun experience. The game later inspired Lima Sky's Doodle Jump which has also been a massive success.

While Lima Sky is still putting the final touches on their iPad version of Doodle Jump, you can play PapiJump on the iPad for free.

I can't say PapiJump for iPad is anything more than a novelty, but it plays differently than you might expect. The iPad version will play in both landscape and portrait, though I found the landscape (steering wheel hold) more natural. In contrast, the iPhone version has always been a one-handed portrait affair. Sunflat has also added swipe and touch controls to the iPad verison.

Meanwhile, James Cameron's Avatar from Gameloft is now available in an iPad version.

The iPad-optimized version does not appear to have any new content, but does have improved graphics and reconfigured controls for your iPad-enjoyment.

    Sounds Great. I haven't played a single game on my Iphone 3gs since buying the Ipad. The larger screen on the Ipad makes everything look amazing. Seeing all the characters models in games large and upclose blew me away. It's a huge difference on the eyes.

      An iPad is kind of like Christianity in the respect that it seems absolutely ridiculous on paper, yet one you experience it there is no turning back.

        Hahaha true... all my friends were haters until they used mine... now they all want one :)

      I don't blame you...you'd have to be pretty stupid to want to play a graphically-detailed game like Avatar on a bigger screen. Having my fat thumbs block a big chunk of the screen is half the fun of iPhone gaming! Why don't those iPad-lovers get that??
      ;)

      Nice line. But the sand is a little gritty.

      I'm getting my iPad next Friday. Enjoy your sand.

      Another future iPad owner... obviously.

    I have an iPad and think it's great, but it's quite ridiculous how some developers are charging a premium for rehashes. I already have Avatar on my iPhone yet I'm expected to pay full price plus a premium to play it on my iPad...

    I don't mind paying again for the iPad, if the game is worth it then I will. However I hope in future that more games are universal, and that save games sync between devices.

    The guy always seemed a little small in this game. I'm guessing it will be easier to see whats going on with the iPad.
