Sky Gamblers on iPad

Namco took to the stage at Apple's iPad media event earlier this month to show off a new iOS game that's been tailored to take advantage of the new tablet's high-resolution Retina display. It's called Sky Gamblers: Air Supremacy, and according to Namco, "this is the ultimate air combat game."

Now you can check out those claims for yourself because Sky Gamblers is in the App Store and ready to be installed on your new tablet as soon as you take it out of the box. It's priced at $4.99 and in addition to the new iPad, it supports the iPhone 4S, the iPad 2, the third- and fourth-generation iPod touch, and even the iPhone 3GS and the original iPad.

But of course, to take advantage of its incredible high-definition visuals, you'll want to play on a device with a Retina display.

FORGET EVERYTHING YOU'VE PLAYED! THIS IS THE ULTIMATE AIR COMBAT GAME that's taking the world by storm! Designed with the latest iOS technology and features, Air Supremacy is a never-before-seen 3D experience. With an extensive single player campaign and revolutionary multiplayer modes, the non-stop action will keep you at the edge of your seat!

Until now, only consoles could deliver this kind of immersive audio-visual gaming experience. With iOS, Sky Gamblers: Air Supremacy on iPhone, iPod touch and iPad brings you unparalleled visuals, special effects and audio including: bump mapping, atmospheric scattering, volumetric clouds with realistic lighting, sun glare, day & night transitions, God rays and more! And with Airplay, it's explosive entertainment for all your friends and family!

Sky Gamblers features over 40 jet fighter configurations and over 40 billion square feet of land and sea for you to fight over. After completing the campaign, you can expand your skills in dogfight missions, survival, free for all, team deathmatch, capture the flag, and defend the base game modes.

The title is already getting 5-star reviews in the App Store. What do you think of it?
