Looking for ios platformers similar to Swordigo

I just finished playing the awesome and addictive Swordigo on my iphone, and now I'm looking for my next obsession. What are your recommendations for iphone platformers with logic puzzles, hidden secrets and a bit of a Zelda/Mario feel? I just downloaded Wind-Up Knight, but not as big a fan of the endless runner stuff.

I asked a similar question a few weeks ago - Swordigo and Waking Mars have been my favorites so far - I'm still trying to get through Swordigo (maze with balls of flame - ARGH).

Anyway, you might be interested in some of the other answers there as well. I'll be watching this space with interest.

I loooove Nihilumbra... The 2d part of the game (after you finish it) is downright devilish.

That's exactly where I got stuck in Swordigo!

Bastion is stunningly gorgeous and plays beautifully.

LostWinds is a gentle platformer with a lovely atmosphere. There's also a sequel.

Lili has an unusual combat system where you fight monsters by plucking flowers from their bodies.

NyxQuest is an puzzle/platformer set in Ancient Greece.

Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light has dual-stick combat and I'm very bad at that, but what I saw of the game looked good.

Also, keep an eye out for the Oceanhorn. The previews look amazing.
