Side scrolling platformer recommendations?

By far, my fav games on the iPhone are Toy Bot Diaries 1 & 2. Unfortunately, they're not long enough, and other than searching for that one last memory in TBD1, I'm done. I'm guessing the next TBD won't be out for a while, and I need to pass the time until Rolando comes out...

What other, similar, games would people recommend?

TIA

There has been some mixed opinion about a game called Hamster House, which is currently selling at 59p and sounds to have some interesting mechanics and collectables. Plus the graphics look pretty good so it may be worth checking out.

Other than that there really is no other platformers out there :P

hamster house was slow/frustrating for me.

PapiCave is worth looking at.

I know this will never happen but Mario on the iPhone would be the most amazing thing ever.

PapiJump cave is very similar, definitely worth checking out!
