I'm a sucker for Flight Control HD... I don't know why. I play Air Control (the free Android ripoff) constantly on my phone.
Ragdoll Blaster 2 ($2.99) is a lot of fun. There's only an iPhone version right now, but it still looks good on the iPad. There's a free lite version if you want to check it out.
Alive 4 Ever Returns is another iPhone only game that still looks pretty good on the iPad. No free trial available, but definitely worth $1.99.
And you can't miss the time waster Paper Toss. The free version has ads, but who cares it's free. Whenever someone in my family picks up my iPad they play that game.
Angry Birds ($.99) is awesome. I think its one of the top iPhone games. Don't waste money paying extra for the HD version ($4.99), the iPhone version plays great on the iPad in 2x and has all the same features.

I'm such a sucker for DLing games. Last nite it was befuddled hd. .99 cents and it's like bookworm where you create words for points and have to deal with blank tiles and other obsticles. Simple yet addictive. Space Station HD (few dollars, can't remember the cost) is warcraft type RTS where you just play defense. Well done. I've messed around with Castlecraft and Pocket Legends though neither have caught my attention to too long. Spent alot of time on Medieval, an iphone game that looks fine on the ipad and one of the better tower defense games around. Plants vs. Zombies is the very best IMO....I think this is somewhat expensive but well worth it. If there was ever a game suited for the ipad this is it.
I've spent more time on Elevens Gems than any other game, but I was hooked on the Elevens games on the iPhone too, even though they aren't ones you hear much about.
I am addicted to Harbor Master
I just would like to discuss a newly released game for kids - Kinder Hangman iPhone App. Actually, I don't like playing computer and iPhone games, but after playing it several times with children my attitude towards online games was completely changed. Hope that your children will enjoy playing this wonderful game.
For free games that aren't lite/demo (but some are free with paid DLC or requires an openfeint connexion or something, but I haven't include new free games based on ipub and requiring ios4):
Good games, but I would not keep many for a list including my own top paid games, perhaps only the first 3 or perhaps the first 5.
- Trundle HD (DLC)
- Topple 2 Plus+
- Godville (Funny Unix Fortune clone morphed in a fake MMORPG)
- Isaac Newton's Gravity HD (DLC)
- Harbor Master HD (works with DLC but not sure that base app will continue be free for long)
- Creepy Caverns
- Navy Patrol Coastal Defense Advanced (DLC)
- Glyder 2 (HD)
- Skies of Glory (DLC)
- Nethack HD
- Volkwagen Polo Challenge
- Alpine Crawler HD
- Stunt Car Racine Crawler Free (in fact a full game).
- rRootage Online (not a MMO)
- Tyrian Lite (in fact full game, at least currently and since some weeks)
