Good platforming Games

Over the past few weeks I have started to enjoy Sonic the Hedgehog on the iPod, and right now I am wondering if anyone here knows of any game that is like Sonic in regards of platforming?
I am in the mood for some jumping =D
Prices are not a problem, and I am using a Second Gen iPod Touch 8Gig if that matters at all

Castle of Magic and Bounce On have a lot of jumping. Rolando 1 & 2 isn't like Sonic and stuff.

Bounce On is a good one... 2.99 I think... It has 4 worlds with a 5th coming soon.

For the best value I'd go with Castle of Magic ($0.99)... But if you already have that one there is the classic Mega Man II ($4.99) and Bounce On ($3.99)... Another unique platformer I like is Ignite ($1.99)

Spy bot chronicles is an amazing platformer. Graphics are awesome there are 4 worlds hidden levels and collectables you find throughout the game. This is the best platformer as of now I think

I am trying out the lite versions of Castle Of Magic and bounce on. From what I have seen from the pictures, they both look promising, Thanks to everyone who recommended a game

I like the game as much as the next guy, it's a classic, but the iPhone/touch version is just...wow...it's severely unoptimized.

Anyway, here are some good platformers:
I didn't really find anything wrong with the game, only like once did I notice slowdown and I find it run to just pick up and play when I am sitting in the car with nothing better to do, Maybe I am blinded by Nostalgia or something
Also thanks for the list
