2D Platformer: Manipulating the world

Hi everyone,

Trying to find examples of 2D platformers with touch controls to manipulate the worlds. A notable example is "Max & the Magic Marker" and "Lost Winds" but are there more?

Looking forward to your suggestions!

I believe Contre Jour you manipulate the environment to move your character long if I'm not mistaken.

World of goo, disorientated, draw the line,cado, rotate n roll
Are a few that comes to mind, though it depends on your idea of "manipulate" several I listed above you must spin the world around to play the game, some you must draw on screen, some you must build bridges or towers.

Tower building/
World of goo
Tiki towers 1
Tiki towers 2
Construction zone
Simple physics

Bridge building
Bridge odysee
Cargo bridge
Bridge the gap
Bridge construction

Spin the world-
Rotate n roll

Draw on screen
Save yammi
Draw the line
A moon for the sky
Drag the rope (free today)
Chop chop kicker
Slice it
Slash it
Axe in face

Move the ground:

Bumpy road

Physics puzzlers where you slice parts of the background to play the game
