This 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
The TouchArcade Show – 206 – Growing Pains Fan Club
Sometimes, all it takes for the collective internet mind to start spinning its wheels at max speed is the simple case of a photo change, and that’s exactly what happened when Blizzard switched out its Hearthstone Facebook Cover Photo today to the image you see below. And just like that, reddit went all Sherlock Holmes and started wondering whether this image is teasing Hearthstone ‘s [ Free ] next expansion.
In First Quarter 2015 ‘Crossy Road’ Had More Active Players in the UK than ‘Candy Crush’ and ‘Clash of Clans’
Apparently Crossy Road [ Free ] can be successful even when the cars drive on the other side of the road because according to a new report by research firm App Annie , Hipster Whale’s take on Frogger had more active players in the UK during the first quarter of 2015 than Candy Crush Soda Saga and Clash of Clans . However, don’t take that to mean that the game can’t put money in the safe fast enough; the game might be quite popular still (it has been downloaded over 70 million times worldwide), but as co-founder Matt Hall said at the GDC conference in March, Crossy Road isn’t making anywhere near the money that other popular F2P games are making mainly due to its monetization practices. Despite the “relatively” lower revenue when compared to the game’s success, Hipster Whale is happy that it decided to respect its players and not to imitate other companies’ practices

The TouchArcade Show – 202 – An Illness Cured Only by Apple Watch
If you listened to our show last week , you know that it’s been a pretty hectic couple of weeks for Eli and myself and it’s been difficult to find the time to sit down and hammer out our podcast. A shame, especially since we should be celebrating our 200th episode! This week, Eli is in India with an internet connection that’s… well let’s just say it’s not reliable. Not even close to reliable enough to get through even a half hour edition of our show
The TouchArcade Show Will Return On Monday!
There’s a curious trend happening where YouTube gaming personalities are releasing mobile games. There’s Tobuscus Adventures: Wizards [ $4.99 ], and CaptainSparklez has the upcoming Fortress Fury , for example.
