The TouchArcade Show – 212 – An Ode to Tiny Virtual Buttons

TouchArcade Rating:

316645_largerThis week’s episode of the podcast was dominated by game discussion of two awesome titles that were released this week. We get down and dirty with Adventures of Pip ($5.99) which seems like a really clever platformer that manages to blend pixel art both as an art style and as a game premise. Unfortunately, the virtual controls sort of suck. On the other hand, we’re all excited for The Executive ($2.99). It’s a deceptively deep fighting game even though the controls seem so simple, oh, and even just calling it a fighting game is weird as there’s so much more you do in it. We hit on the weekly Nintendo drama, and there’s even some exciting news about the future of TouchArcade hidden in the podcast that you’ll have to listen to to find out- Otherwise it’ll all be revealed next week when we make our official announcement.
