hai there guys! also No IAPs Sims

Hey there guys I'm a long time lurker in the site but this is my first post. I've been using Apple devices since the iPhone 1, however.. I never actually did any gaming until a year or so I bought my first iPad, I gotta say it is pretty much my primary gaming platform nowadays.

I'm a dude who likes to pay for its videogames, my single biggest complain, and I assume; it is the same for others: IAPs. I love simulation games. Other than Kairosoft, I have a hard time finding a sim game that doesn't feels like a complete utter devious scam (Clan wars I'm looking at you).

I'm looking for recomendations of sims on iOS that I can buy and play without the need to drop a $10 every couple of days.

Cheers, and thanks in advance!

Would be interested too, one of my favourite genres which suits iPad pretty well is just filled with junk gambling apps masquerading as games.

Finding a game in that genre on iOS without a paywall sounds like a good plot for the next Mission Impossible movie.

There's a roller coaster tycoon port in the works right now. I really really hope it is an actual port and not remade with IAP like what happened with Theme Park.

I feel your pain. I used to buy multiple games a month. Then in-app purchase became the norm. I haven't' purchased a game in 3 months. (Not for lack of trying).
