Best Games to play in portrait mode

So recently I bought my ipad and all i play on it is strategy games (rts, turn based rpg, etc...) since everything else action wise is on my ipod touch. Point is i usually have it connected to the keyboard so its on portrait view. Is ther any good strategy/rts/td games that can be played in this view? (i like having the ipod just there instead of having to be holding it the whole time i play.

The only TD game i know that can be played in portrait mode is Mach Defense ( http://appshopper.com/games/mach-defense )

I'll second Mach Defense. It's a very long game (I think there were 70 levels) and my wife hated me playing it for hours on end days in a row. However The only drawback is that I ended up only using 2-3 units throughout the entire game and upgraded those. There was no diversity once I found out which worked well together and used them throughout.

Still all in all a fun game that I'd recommend.
