Facebook gaming addicts rejoice! GameBox for Facebook is here and promises Facebook games on your iPad. Right now it only supports two games, Digital Chocolate's Army Attack and the ever-so-popular CityVille from Zynga. More games are obviously on their way promises the app's developer.

The way it works is the actual flash rendering is happening in the cloud, with the GameBox app relaying things back and forth to your iPad. The next question is, does the developer have permission from Zynga and other game companies to do this? Right now, GameBox for Facebook is on the App Store for $2.99.
