Good one handed games

When i am on the tube and can't get a seat i often have to stand using one hand holding onto a railing for support.

There aren't actually that many games you can really play with one hand!!!

I play a bit of glider as. THe rocking of the train throws the accelerometer off a bit but not too much to matter.

Racing games don't work though for the above reason.

Anyone able to suggest some good games that you can play with one hand... don't have to be accelerometer... i can press butons with a thumb!!

Already discussed though probably a few more since that thread died but here's some that were suggested.

1) Blue Attack! I'm the uncontested, probably forever worldwide high score holder (seriously I can't even score like that again) and I play it one-handed
2) Lots of TD games...like iTD
3) Airport Mania, Sally's Spa...
