Local 2 Player iPad Games

I have been searching for 2 player same device iPad games for hours a day recently, I've exhausted all possible search terms I can think of, and I've been surprised by how few there seem to be! I'm looking mainly for action puzzle type games, simple turn based games and Tower Defence games.
So far I've found these good quality games:

Double bubble HD
Crazy Caps HD
Piyo Blocks 2
Splash Duel HD
Greedy Bankers Vs The World
Disc Drivin
Great Little War Game
Fieldrunners

I'm aware of games like 10 pinshuffle, Touch Hockey, Globulous and the obvious Chess and hidden object games, and am not looking for board games( although we quite like Loot The Spook!)
However, at this stage I'm willing to give most things a try!

Maybe im missing something, but can anyone recommend anything else please?

Ready Steady Bang
Goggle Frog
Orbit1
Blonde vs Brunette Racing
King of Opera

There's more I've encountered but don't have installed anymore. These are just the ones my son loves (along with Slot Racing HD, and various board games).

Social Games: Pocket Mine 2, Terra Battle, FF Record Keeper, PAD

Thanks for the help guys! I actually have some of those, and tried some of the others.

Are there any super puzzle fighter/bust a move clones, or head to head match 3 games?
Also strategy turn based/ RTS games?

I can't believe how difficult it seems to be to find good games of these type, or any other same device games for that matter!

If you liked Great Little War Game, there's a big sequel coming out early next month - Great Big War Game. (See what we did there, lol).

As you'd expect from a sequel it has more of everything but the pass and play and asynchronous online modes have recieved a lot of attention for playability etc.

Not a bad one, but I'm convinced there must be some hidden gems!
It's become a bit of a mission for me now, which the mrs isn't to pleased with.....

Just in case anyone comes across this thread I thought I'd post anything, IMHO, that seems pretty good. There seems to be quite a few that would get downloaded then removed straight away, but I'm looking for the games more likely to stay on my iPad a while. Theme aside, as not everyone will like the look of a game, here's a couple more:

Flick Champions
Brick People
Battlestar Commander
Total War Battles

Please add anything else!
