Mickey shorts halloween, even though it is more of a lite version, may be good to put on your list.

For auto runners, since Mirror's Edge is included, how about Capt America Sentinel of Liberty?

Also, Run Roo Run, Run Run Die, Bitless, Fast Ball series and Monkey Ninja have a bit of platforming in them, but they are somewhat runners.

As for the runners, i dont think you should include titles like Canabalt or Robot Unicorn since they are runners on one plane with different heights. I think platforming should include a bit of choosing where to jump on like multi-platforms in order to progress... Else all runners with a jump button and pitfalls can be platformers.

Run Roo Run has lots of platforming in the later levels, where you need to jump on and off and change directions even

Later on, it requires jumping on or passing below the platforms. Doesnt that make it a platformer? On the other hand, it does feel like a puzzler to figure out where to jump and where to not jump on the platforms. Hmm...
