Is there an iPad app that allows me to use a desktop game with an important audio component? I'm looking for a pleasurable music-like experience on the iPad.

Splashtop supports audio redirection (from the desktop to the iPad), however it requires running the Splashtop Streamer on your Mac.

I've been using Splashtop for a few days now and it enables me to use my home PC when I am out and about with full audio streaming from the home PC. It works well on both external and internal networks – Vince Pettit Jun 1 '12 at 10:08

While you play any game on the iPad, you can also play any song or playlist in your iTunes song library at the same time, in the background.
