Good games in portrait orientation that do not use accelerometer

This may seem like a really strange question but I have an apple dock for my iPod and I like to be able to play games while it is charging. Can anyone recommend any games that are in portrait orientation and don't use the accelerometer?

great fun, and on sale at the moment too (99c /59p), there is a lite version to try it out as well.

I second that. Probably the best portrait game of them all. I also love, orbital, and I dig it, and zen bound!

My friend said to me, "I think the weather's trippy." I said, "No, man, it's not the weather that's trippy, perhaps it is the way that we perceive it that is indeed trippy." Then I thought, "Man, I should've just said, 'Yeah."CS.one R3DC3ll Faction-Join us or die...proud member of TheBeastlyNinja Epic-uber elite comedy crew

Samurai works very well indeed. I also want to add Uno.

If you like RPGs and old-school turn based Dungeon Crawlers, then Rogue Touch fits your needs. No accelerometer, played in portrait, minimal tapping with Fast-Play enabled in settings...
