Best one finger or one touch games?

I've been impressed by the sheer simplicity of Canabalt.

What are some worthy games that only need one finger press (like Canabalt) or just use one finger to control the games (like Ion Charge?)

I guess we could also include one-handed games that also use the accelerometer like Doodle Jump, and Touch Lander. (though I'm not sure you can play Doodle Jump one-handed and shoot the baddies...can you?)


Single Press
=========
Canabalt
iCopter (and variants)

One Finger(or Thumb)
========
Ion Charge
Orbital
Galcon/Galcon Labs
Arachnadoodle
Card Ninja
Mazefinger
Tetris
Card Ninja
Mazefinger
UnBlock Me
Pathpix
Chop chop ninja
Most turn based strategy like Uniwar, Battle for Wesnoth, etc
Mr AahH!
Frenzic
Apocalypse Zombie Fish
GeoSpark
Ramp Champ
Paper Toss: World Tour

One Handed
=========
Doodle Jump
Touch Lander
Auto Crisis
Space Ninja
Labryinth 2 (and variants)
Boost 3D
Crazy Turkey Blast
Hot Dog down a Hallway
FIFA 10 (using accelerometer controls)
Real Racing (using auto accelerate)

Post more below and I'll update this.

Thanks!
