Hello guys,
As a fresh owner of iPod 4g I am going to purchase some games. When I was browsing the appstore I came across same HD games for iPhone, that I can additionally run on iPad. The question is: can you actually feel the difference between SD and HD while playing on iPhone 4/ iPod 4g? Or maybe HD visuals can be experienced only on iPad? Sorry for my poor English, hope you guys can understand it^^ thx in advance.

SD games are those who haven't updated their graphics to support Retina Display i.e games for the 3GS etc. HD games usually run only on the iPad because of the larger screen. Retina Display compatible games do look brilliant on the iPhone 4 and iPod Touch 4th Gen.

Ive checked world of goo, and both sd and hd versions support retina. I guess the only difference here is whether I can play it on ipad or not. In other cases, I will stick to your info.
