122371_largerThis week's episode of The TouchArcade Show is loaded with discussions of the various games of the week and Mike's odd depth of knowledge when it comes to anything to do with Growing Pains. It's really creepy, in a way that's actually creepy and not just in one of those "Oh I'm just joking around" kind of ways. It's a good time, I promise, you might even learn something... About Growing Pains.

Brickies, Free - The team at Noodlecake isn’t a fan of over the top sales pitches. So they gave us an ad that was simple and to the point.

Brickies is a new take on the classic breakout game genre. It has everything you know and love from brick breakers and a few surprises you won’t see coming. It has lots of levels, great visuals, an endless high score mode, and stackable power ups that result in big time destruction.

If you are a fan of breakout games, or are looking try one out for the first time, Brickies is free on the App Store so you might as well check it out. You’ve got nothing to lose. Except sleep if you stay up all night playing it.

    That was...unexpected. Just going about my usual business with the podcast in the background, when I hear Eli say "metalcasket". I literally turned around and said "Yeah...?". Haha, awesome!

    Agree that "not quite ideal for mobile" games are a great part of the mix. For one thing, I don't always want to sit at my desk or fire up my living room projector--I want to game "wherever," and an iPad/iPhone is very comfortable for that. So I'll gladly accept slightly-odd controls and a smaller screen.

    And then there are hard-core desktop genres that I think work better on Touch, even if people have ingrained habits otherwise. VainGlory got me into MOBAs, and I can't imagine trying to play such a game with a mouse. Direct touch seems perfect. Same for RTS, TD and TBS games--I want to touch the units, not some indirect mouse or controller. It's like the difference between trying to get a toy those Krazy Krane things vs. just picking up a toy with your hand!

    I even enjoy FPS games on mobile--and that's my favorite genre on the desktop.

    (Thanks for turning me on to Capitals too.)
