On this week’s episode of The TouchArcade Show we kick the holidays off right by talking about… Jared somehow not having a Christmas tree yet? Despite hosting Christmas for his whole family? A real Christmas Mystery. Anyway, after going through some of the bigger news stories of the week we dig into a few new games: Fly THIS! (Free) which is a neat modern spin on Flight Control, Miyamoto ($2.99) which was totally not what we expected, Ninja Streak (Free) which wins this week’s award for coolest idea that needs a better implementation and… an honorable mention for Tropico ($11.99).
Don’t forget to shoot us emails with any questions, feedback, or anything else relevant or irrelevant to firstname.lastname@example.org.
