Favorite platformers?

Classic Mario style platformers are one of my favorite genres in gaming. Can anybody recommend good solid platformers?

I have Soosiz and think its great, but I've been unable to find any others with the same top quality. Any suggestions?

Giana Sisters & Castle of Magic are my favs.
One game, that need a little polish, but is fun nonetheless: Omino

I suggest: Rolando (1 & 2), Grokion, Giana Sisters, Sonic the Hedgehog (1 & 2), Plushed, and Omino (It's free w/ DLC)

PS: This is in the order I want you to buy them in

I'm what you could call a "casual" mobile gamer.

Bounce On 2, Chop Chop Ninja, Qwak (my favorite), Grokion, (PS Iron Commando is free), Hoggy and Edge (last two are often called puzzle platformers but great none the less)
Babylonian is not bad and it is or at least was free.
