Best Portrait iPhone Games

This comes around every few years, but I haven't seen it recently:

What are the best portrait games available for iPhone?

Extra points for those optimised for one-handed or brief play.

Many of the above I haven't tried so glad to hear of those suggestions.

Personally, I definitely recommend Monument Valley - the first version just went free as well so perfect time to download it. It is an incredible game in my opinion and worth spending on the update.
Another game I recommend and which I keep re-adding on my phone is Crossy Road. Quick gameplay, really cool how they switch things up with the characters (they include characters from other games - clearly for cross-promotion but I like how subtle that is).

Last but not least - Polyblast (Disclaimer: I am part of the team who created it). Its a cool (portrait) space-invader like game that has smart gameplay. I recommend you check it as well (and if you can give me feedback even better )
