    I would like to download some good games on my iPhone (iPhone 6 optimized) but I haven’t really been able to find ones that are good that you can just buy for a couple of $ and then play without having to pay more.
    I really really don’t like the concept of freemium games and I definitely do not want to play anything where you can buy „a box of crystals“ or „a bucket of gold“ or anything like that.

    Basically fieldrunners 2 (even tho it has some in app purchased unfortunately) and Fruit ninja (now also updates with annoying in app purchases) are the only games I really like.

    I also don’t like games that feel like they must be played on a console or with a controller like some of the shooter games I tried.

    Do you guys have any suggestions?

    I did not like a dark room... I know it got a lot of hype, but didn't do it for me. I am with you, freemium is the downfall of the app.

    Here are some that have kept my attention:

    > Plane Jumper (...ok shameless plug there, but I made it to be the ultimate toilet pass-time without costing you money each time)

    > BikeRace (you can play forever without buying the bike upgrades)

    > Flow Free (there are additional level packs that you can buy, but thats not quite the same -- also Connect All and Flow Free Bridges are in that same family)

    > 2048 Snake

    > tiny death star (this held my attention for about 2 years... i don't play anymore, but I mention it because despite being a steeply freemium app -- and one you might have avoided -- it is one you can actually keep on playing through without coughing up $)

    > Blek / The Room (these were cool, but really short)
