Side-scrolling adventures for iPhone

Looking for the best side-scrolling adventure (or possibly other type) games for iphone. I played a came called Cosmo when I was a kid that I found completely captivating - different challenges on every level, fun graphics, etc. I'd like something for iPhone that would recapture that sense of fun.

I've tried the Wind-up Knight but it seemed to require super-precise movements and then not respond to them that precisely. Eventually I got frustrated and looked at online reviews and found that I wasn't the only one and gave up. I also didn't like that I could not control my speed. I tried the adventure with the white rabbit which unfortunately I can't recall the name of - but it seemed a bit buggy as well, and eventually I gave up on it.
Other games I've liked though not necessarily from the same genre are World of Goo and Plants Vs. Zombies. (Most tower defense games I find fairly dull, though). Loved the visuals and sounds on Goo (which I first read about here), and PvZ was entertaining enough to keep my interest long enough to play the entire game through several times.
I am not such a fan of games that don't allow you to control speed, such as Temple Run and NinJump.
