Best iPhone games in portrait mode?

Im looking for a good portrait mode game to iPhone. Since i have both ipad and ipadmini i dont see any reason to turn my phone landscape while gaming.

Really like the Kairosoft games, 100 rouges and Knights of pen and paper.

Since you like RPGs in general, here are some good hybrids that are in portrait mode:

Puzzle Saga
Dungeon Raid
Dungeon Story
Tower of Fortune
100 Rogues

...And here are great non-RPG games in portrait mode (these are some of my 5-stars):

Temple Run 2/Oz
Indiana Stone
Captain Antarctica
Super Mole Escape
Danmaku Unlimited 2
Phoenix HD
Zen Pinball
Ridiculous Fishing
Eve of Impact
Monsters Ate My Condo

Tappiing Dead. It's a one touch game and a new update will be released soon, removing timers/lives and adding power ups.
