A small and steady stream of 4" screen enabled apps are now making their way into the App Store.

Sister site AppShopper.com allows you to see a realtime list of these new iPhone 5 enabled apps using this "iPhone 5" search query. That url shows all recently updated iOS apps that mention "iPhone 5" in their What's New update description. There may be a few false positives, but the majority of apps listed are listing support for the new iPhone.

There are a relatively small number of updates so far, but the list will continue to grow as we approach the iPhone 5 launch on September 21st. Only a handful of games are compatible so far. These include Pangea Software's catalog including Enigmo 2 and Mojang's Minecraft - Pocket Edition.

I'm updating our apps to scale to 2272 x 640 to account for the next few iPhone versions...

(My app is a fertility charting app with a limited market, so I didn't bother to mention it here.)

The dig about me not getting any these days, and thus not having to worry about a girlfriend's fertility cycle, was totally unnecessary. Thanks.

We have an iPhone 5 update that we aren't submitting until we can run it on real hardware and test. It's just not worth the chance of a snafu.

It wont change the game play nor change the fact that the game is boring
Regardless of wether you like (a) game(s) or not;

No, it won't change the gameplay, but will enhance the experience (greater view without pan/zoom). That's actually good.

However; there are some games where enhancing the gameplay could produce an unbalanced advantage; horizontal / vertical scrollers / shooters / platformers where you can see further ahead than the older versions. That's where the producers have to be careful when updating.
Not so much difference to FPS / twin sticks etc. aside from possibly more control placement freedom.
