Best Portrait-only iPhone Games (non-puzzle)

Hey all! Lately, I've almost only been wanting to play games on my iPhone in portrait mode. I'm not talking puzzlers, I'm wanting something with a little more action, skill, or "not-being-a-puzzle-game." What are some of the best games you've played that are either portrait-only or can be played either way?

Here's a quick list of my current stuff:
Smash Bandits
Gurk III
Doodle Jump

No kidding. Especially now that the game is a completely premium app and all IAPs that were in it have been stripped away. It's a shame that the game didn't get any attention post-update. It's a Must Have.

Everyone's favorite chamber of death, doom and decomposition.

I'm not against puzzle games at all. I just think they're easier to find in portrait. I have had Pixel Defenders Puzzle in the past; great game. A lot of stuff I've seen posted so far has been new, while many things (Temple Run, of course) are old favorites I've deleted.

Keep them coming!
