iOS is plagued with games that sacrifice gameplay integrity in order to achieve more downloads. Therefore, this article is for the purpose of sharing those games that have zero in-game monetization.
In case a definition of these parameters is necessary, please observe these guidelines:
– No consumable IAP. If the game offers a continual method of payment that can influence the gameplay itself (typically via an in-game shop/boosts), than it will not be added to these premium iOS Games.
– Singular purchases, such as advertisement removal, DLC/extra content, full game unlock, as well as cosmetic extras that do not change gameplay, are all acceptable forms of IAP that are NOT considered to be in-game monetization. Singular purchases are only alright IF there is no consumable IAP otherwise.
– If a game has ONLY a coin doubler WITHOUT consumable IAP, then this is acceptable if I say so on a case-by-case basis. This almost never happens, so it should not be a concern.
– Games that allow you to unlock chapters early via IAP will also not appear in this article for premium iOS games.
The premium games can be new or old ones. If you know premium games that should be added, please leave a comment or write us a message.
