Universal games that play better on iPhone than ipad

I finally got back into the phone ecosystem, I have had the most recent ipad for years, but I want to lighten the hard drive and I'm wondering what games you guys prefer to play on iPhone even with the size disadvantage. Probably some games that involve tilting like ridiculous fishing, or if you guys know of iPhone only games that are great I would love to try those out as well. Thanks guys

Some tilting games are far better on an iphone cause of its light weight. Also, many games seem made for iphone and zoomed out controls on the ipad, making the buttons way too big and far spaced.

Also, some games put buttons or button zones in the middle of the ipad, which makes it hard to play with two thumbs. On iphones it is possible, but hard on ipads.

Rotate and roll and ridiculous fishing are pretty much the only games I play on iPhone.. Rotate and roll really gets you screamy when using tilt control.. It's great.

I like playing Dungelot with one-hand so i played it more on the iphone, but it's still pretty good on the large screen though.
