Two players, one device?

Sorry if this question has been asked before, please point me to the appropriate thread if it has.

My daughters and I love to play games meant for 2 players on one iPhone. I have Ready, Steady, Bang, Olo, SpaceOff, and Glow Hockey. What are some other good ones? Don't worry about "for kids", any genre is fine. Thanks!

Toon shooters is ok but there's no space for 2 people on an iPhone.
Puzzlejuice is also fun.
Thats all I can find on my iPod..

Marble Mixer.

It's definitely the most popular game on my devices when I have friends and family trying it out.
We mostly play on iPad, it works wonderfully on the big screen, but it works fine on the small screen too.

My absolute go-to game for multiplayer on the same device, and have been for over a year now.

Two player games on iPhone is kind of a passion of mine so I'll try to make as much of a comprehensive yet abbreviated list as I can. Your best bet is going to be board games, card games, and dice games.

personal recommendation
* easy to learn/suitable for children

Board games:

Ticket to Ride
Settlers of Catan
Neuroshima Hex
Blokus *
Life *
Monopoly *
Battleship *

Card games:

Food Fight *
Bang *
Reactcardz (iLegretto) * - simultaneous two player multiplayer

Dice games:

Zombie Dice *
Pass the Pigs *
Roll Through the Ages

Other games worth looking into:

King of Opera * - simultaneous four player multiplayer
Noir: Killer vs. Inspector
Disc Drivin' *

Thanks, folks! I realized I had some of the other ones on your lists, too - they just hadn't occurred to me at the time (mostly the boardgame-style games). But I did pick up Noir, Battle Minesweeper, and Minotaur Rescue...so THANK YOU! Awesome

and the horse you rode in on
