Default Quick-Fun-Super Hard-Games

Hi all, I've recently gotten addicted to the genre of ridiculously hard on iphone and was hoping some more people could recommend some really hard games. To describe what I'm looking for, basically fairly simple, games that can be played in bursts, that take a ton of time to get really good at, and will take a LOT of gameplay before I finally delete the app.

Examples:
The Impossible Game- I love it because I've spent over 30 hours probably and I've beaten all but heaven. I play for about 5 minutes whenever I get the chance.

Super Hexagon- Super hard and I've been having a lot of fun with it

Pivvot- Also Super hard, and also has a great endless mode.

Anyone recommend games with the simplicity of these games that are difficult/fun/addicting?

Of course Super Hex and Pivvot's in that folder too.
I would also add Mos Speedrun to that folder.

Also, the Livid Dead levels in Rayman Jungle Run are awesomely annoying.

A lot of the games mentioned here are "hexlikes", a term coined by the Duet devs describing simple, difficult games like Super Hexagon and Pivvot.

Here's a thread where you can find some more:

I randomly came across "Trap Adventure" when searching for a Spelunky clone. It's not like Spelunky, but it is a super fun, punishing (you have one life, and always start at the beginning) survival platformer a lot like I Wanna Be the Guy, with a bit of Mario and Super Meat boy thrown in. It's really fun and it's free so I'd highly recommend it.

Anything from Jeff Minter... anything.

+1 on EP's mention of 774 Deaths. You will throw your phone across the room and then run over and get it to try again. I never cursed at my phone until I played that monster of a game.

I had avoided Duet because of all the SH co,parisons as well. Glad I decided to grab that too.
I guess I love all the games in this new sub-genre besides the hero of it, SH.

Octagon. Should I grab that too?
Groove Vortex?
