Best platformer game for iPad 2 ?

I just realized I don't have a platformer game for the iPad... What's the best one?

God, where to begin?

League of Evil, Mos Speedrun, and Super Crate Box are my favorites. (League of Evil 2 is coming in a few days actually...)

Bean's Quest, Terra Noctis, and Paper Monsters are amazing as well.

Those 6 are widely considered some of the best, so you can't go wrong.

Super Crate Box perhaps? (It is very challenging and addictive and well designed)

Any of those plus Robot Wants Kitty, maybe Pix'n Love Rush HD, and for sure Crazy Hedgy if you're looking for a great 3D one. It uses tilt controls, but from what i've seen (note i've only played on an itouch) the controls are some of the best out there.

I don't want a signature.

Another vote for Mos, LOE, and RWK, and three that haven't been mentioned yet: Shantae, NyxQuest and Mystery of the Japanese Werewolf.

Edit: Actually scratch RWK unless you don't mind playing in 2X mode. Knew there was some reason I didn't have that installed...

It's not as good as most of the others listed, but still decent. Also be sure to buy League of Evil 2---it's releasing on the 15th for a buck and it's gonna be awesome.

Gotta second Bean's Quest. The controls and it being Universal make it a GREAT iPad game.

Niko is pretty good too...
