List of platformer type games

I've really enjoyed games like Rolando, archibalds adventures, blimp, and castle of magic. Are there any other extremely popular and well made games that are similar to those I've mentioned?

Bounce On is a popular one. I don't like it personally, but check out the lite version. Check out Sway too... that is a fun game.

Sway is also extremely fun and unique.

Rick Rocketson is a cool retro platformer!
There is also a lite. Should check that out.

But Castle of Magic really is the best on this device.
Pure awesomeness.

Alien Abuse and Rick Rocketson are pretty good. Alien Abuse had three updates, improving the game and controls. In Rick Rocketson you can download extra game contents.

I appreciate the responses. I own most of the ones people have mentioned--toy bot, sway, bounce on. I was hoping there was one insane game I Mightve missed along the way (seemed likely with 65,000 apps or whatever). Doesn't seem that way thus far though. Hopefully there will be a flurry of good ones soon. Since one guy mentioned gomi (?) does anyone else have info on other upcomers? Maybe include a link to help me research??!?

Thanks,

mike.
