Best games to play in portrait using only thumb

Hey. So i have discovered that I mostly play the kind of games on my iphone where the game is in portrait and I can play it perfectly well using only my thumb and i would like to have more of those kind of games. The ones i play the most right now are pixel people and temple run 2. Could i please ask of some of your suggestions on these type of games?

Nameless The Hackers.

Been playing this one a LOT, and being able to use one hand/finger is great for when my wife lays on me, and I've only got one hand. =oP

I reread it 4-5 times trying to have it not read the way I first read it... and then I just gave up.

I hope this suggestion works, and I'm offering it because you list TR2...

IDK about thumbs specifically, but Subway Surfers takes more of my time than any single other game. Definitely portrait, and definitely one-digit play...

Also wanted to mention Nameless The Hackers if you like RPGs (it was made to be onehanded so much that you can even choose between left and right handed modes).
If match type games, then Dungeon Raid, Dungeon Story, Azkend and Puzzle Quest.
If logics, then Free Flow.
And yes, any Kairosoft if strategy/simulation.
