Help with finding some Solitaire games?

The ones that i have and enjoy are :

Fairway Solitaire
Avalon HD
Faerie Solitaire
Emerland Solitaire
Ski Solitaire
Solitaire Kingdom Supreme HD

They are all variations on tri-peaks (which i actually wish there would be some variation), but they have powerups, goal oriented, generally no timing is required, have achievements, different obstacles to overcome.

I cant seem to nail this type of solitaire for searches - anyone have some other ones like this or some similar suggestions? I have a ton of mahjong solitaire games, but am really more interested in card based. Oh, and hopefully could be played on a iphone, many of the above are ipad only - which is not a deal breaker, but would be nice to have a bit more mobility.

Please no freemium unless there are no paywalls. The Fareway Solitaire by Big Fish is actually of freemium done pretty well. The others are all full games.

Thanks for help and suggestions!

I did an extensive search awhile back but also couldn't locate any like the five Pluto mentioned. Perhaps there are some hidden gems and if so it'd be great if they were shared. I'm hoping so as well because the last game-find for me was Solitaire Kingdom Supreme HD and was a hidden treasure (although it has never allowed me to acquire the last two stars and the last 2 awards for the coat of arms). Still all those mentioned are must-have's, imo.

Have you tried Rummikub? I used to play an old (pretty ugly) version called Romi, but I see that a new official Rummikub app came out this year, and it does support single player. Rummikub vs. computer feels much like a solitaire game to me (in fact, it's all Romi had IIRC). I'm not grabbing the Rummikub app yet to try it—I see issues with the newest update in the reviews--but I'm bookmarking it.

I suggest this because my mom and sister who like iPad solitaire games (cards and Mahjongg alike) also like Rummikub-related games against the computer.

May i suggest my game Card Crawl. Not a classic Solitaire but still has all properties of a Solitaire game.

I made Miracle Merchant, Card Thief, Card Crawl and ENYO. You can read my blog Tinytouchtales.com.

Card Shark Deluxe
Dice Diving
Rush Hour
Roll Through The Ages

Shoot, these are mostly dice games.

Dungeon Solitaire / Necronomicon
Reiner Knzia's Labyrinth

And of course Card Crawl and Donsol are both excellent.

Thanks for the suggestions. None really fit the bill with the similarity of the games i mentioned. However, those games mentioned are excellent. I have and like Card Crawl, and drelbs - i think i have all those apps. I thought Rush Hour was an interesting suggestion - my favorite blocking type game are actually the Blue Block apps, the excellent Kieffer Bros. Blockwick apps, the Blockado series (sadly no longer on the App store) , and Block Drop.

By solitaire does "peg" solitaire count?
I just release a 75 level peg solitaire game called Peg Snoids at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/peg-snoids/id1005997344?mt=8

Coming out on August 27th, as free to play with an in-app purchase to turn off the ads + bonus for 2.99€.
