We're much more on-topic in this week's episode of The TouchArcade Show. At the top, we note our zombie fatigue and talk about the latest rash of zombie video games, including Telltale Games' masterful point-and-click adventure game, Walking Dead: The Game. Later, we dive back into Fieldrunners 2 alongside Eli, which leads to a discussion about how we'd like games to be balanced. Other topics this week include: cloned games, subscription gaming, Firemint post-merger, and the upcoming TouchArcade app update (which actually was submitted today). Unfortunately, we recorded the podcast just before discovering the incredible 10000000 [$2.99], so if you're looking for an awesome game to play this weekend and want to be up on it for when we talk about it next week, check out our review.

This week's episode of The TouchArcade Show is sponsored by Bubble Witch Saga.

Bubble Witch Saga, Free Double, double, toil and trouble!

Bubble Witch Saga is one of the most popular games on Facebook with over four and a half million daily players. Developer King.com has now launched a mobile version of the game for the iPhone.

Bubble Witch Saga offers 150 levels of bubble popping fun and is fully synchronized with the Facebook version. This means that if you have reached level 22 on Facebook, you will also be at level 22 in the iPhone version. And if you are already playing the game on Facebook you will get five additional lives when you play on your iPhone as well.

Bubble Witch Saga is free to download in the App Store.

    Hey TouchArcade, love this site and love the show. Look forward to it each week. I'm having a problem with downloading this show in Apple's Podcasts app. Anyone else having this issue? I've tried resubscribing, deleting and redownloading the app, and just about everything else I can think of. I'm subscribed to about 20 podcasts and this is the only one that won't download. I get an error each and every time. I can however download it on my Mac in iTunes.

    Anyone have this problem/know a fix?

    • Vanamonde

      Can't help, but I'm having the same problem.

      • bradnicholson

        Man. No idea as to the technical reason, guys. Sorry. Will try to look into it.

      I also have been having this issue with the Touch Arcade show only in the Apple Podcast app. It's the only reason I still have Downcast on my iPhone.

      I did try removing the TA podcast and re adding. The recent bug fix update for the app did not help either. This occurs on both my iPhone and iPad, it's truly strange.

      I cant download any podcast with the official app. That app is seriously f*cked up. Been downloading the podcasts using other apps for the time being.

    You mention a 6.99 game as a game you really enjoyed, you called it Sivrath? can you tell the name of the game?

    Brad, I just wanted to say you nailed it on the walking dead game. I couldn't have said it better myself. Also, the minecart 64 game just stole screenshots from a minecraft map I saw a week ago.

    I bought Civ Rev when it was around $12 and it was still a great buy IMO.

  • Noam Rathaus

    Thanks :) I already have it, its a good game, but kinda lacks the smoothness of the PC version, where you can use the keyboard to quickly progress through the turn.

      Autumn Dynasty is a great strategy game thats more streamlined and feels better on iOS. Starbase Orion is another good streamlined strategy game, but a sci fi type.
