Badland is a very good game but its not a platformer.

Shame you dont like Cordy/Sonic style games, one of my favourites is Storm in a Teacup, great graphics and levels, its excellent.

PDA Games is a very good classic platformer, single screen action, tons of levels, plays so well
I'll second PDA games. It's port of the bonus levels from Alien Hominid on PS2 and definitely a fantastic little title. Catchy music, simple premise, almost more puzzle than platformer but is one of the few, the very very few, platformers that work well with touch controls.

Also, Mutant Mudds. Free, not freemium, and stands as the best iOS platformer that imhave played.

*Paper Momsters is currently free, so definitely try it out before making a purchase; I couldn't stand it.

Bloo kid 2 is a phenominal 2d side scrolling platformer!
