    I haven't seen it done yet, so got this thread started

    This is a thread for a big list of games updated, or with updates on the way for the iPhone 5 and iPod Touch 5th Gen native resolution of 1136x640.

    I can not test these games, the tread is a place to collate all the games that take full advantage of the new 16:9 Display. I'm looking for games that use the full widescreen and don't have letterboxes wasting screen space. Screen shots of apps may be a good idea too.

    I will update this post with games as I become aware of them

    Well they have updated MC3 like 3 times, but with MC4 coming out soon, I doubt they'll update it

    If Epic Games adds UDK support for the 16:9 resolutions Mars Base should be updated to do so too. However there is still some confusion over how badly some UI graphics will be stretched. So nothing is set in stone. ^^

    For us, the taller screen is a great boon. I wish we had all those extra pixels to play with during initial development.

    Most crossword puzzles are square, but with the toolbar and keyboard at a usable size on the 3.5" screen, there wasn't a square area left for the grid, so you end up panning up and down on iPhone and iPod touch to see the whole grid at full width.

    Now there's enough room for a square grid area, and we were able to make the keyboard keys a bit taller, to boot!
