The Play store and Amazon app store are just full of these horrid, "free" games that are actually crippled unless you want to spend (a lot more than a game like that is really worth). You know the ones.

I'm wondering if, among the various alternative app stores out there, there exists a curated game store that focuses on games with real content and transparent, up-front prices. Something reminiscent of the quality control present on the consoles of yore (at least, prior to the modern-day abuse of DLC).

Sounds like a generic "shopping question" as in Is there an alternative to XYZ", too broad unless you rephrase your question. – t0mm13b Dec 15 '12 at 3:38
An app store that highlights games/apps that use in-app purchases (and allows you to filter/search on that) would actually be pretty useful. Having In-App Purchases listed in the permissions list when you install (or update) an app would also be a pretty good idea. Perhaps if this question was rephrased as something like "How can I find out which games do/don't use in-app purchasing?" this would be more acceptable (and would allow both alternate interfaces to app markets, and alternate app markets as answers)? – GAThrawn Jan 14 '13 at 11:42
