Is there a list of games without IAP?

Just wondering if such a list is being kept anywhere? I personally can't stand most games with IAP so would be very interested in such a list.

thanks

EDIT: I should have noted, I don't consider IAP to get the full version of an app true IAP. All of the rest is what bugs me to no end. If I can play fully through a game level by level without the need of 'coins' (or whatever) to the bitter end of the app, it is those apps that interest me.

The list would be too exhaustive to make honestly. While their are seemingly millions of freemium apps on the AppStore that doesn't take away from that fact that their are many, many thousands of premium priced apps and apps with no IAP. They just get overshadowed by the freemium swill that dominates the charts.

This is another issue too. There are any premium priced apps with IAP add on content like map packs. I wouldn't throw the baby out with the bath water so to speak with those.

From what I have installed (70% of my total installed games):

Badland
Little Luca
Blip Blup
Super Hexagon
Bouncy!
Impossible Road
Tasty Tadpoles
Bastion
They Need to be Fed 2
Little Viking Dungeons of Doom
Nightsky
Mr Crab
Blast A Way
Super Crate Box
Ridiculous Fishing
Gunslugs
Indiana Stone: The Brave and the Bold
Monsters Ate My Condo

... And many more than I dont have installed...

These are the kind of games worth supporting that we all should buy, not the grindfests or riddled with consumable IAPs games out there. Any single one of these is a gem totally worth buying.
