Jared is getting married this weekend, and will be vanishing from TouchArcade for the next week and a half while he does various honeymoon activities. So, strap in for the last podcast featuring the bearded one as a bachelor.
One of the things I like about Japanese visual novels as opposed to their Western interactive fiction counterparts is they seemingly habitually go completely off the rails at points.
We had a brief teaser of The Balloons from Noodlecake Games, Hyperbeard, and Apps-o-Rama, mostly centered around spikes. But what about the actual game itself? Well, a trailer with actual gameplay footage is out now, and it shows off some of what to expect from The Balloons

It’s that time of week when all the new iOS games hit the US App Store, and it’s another busy week. Whether you think it’s a weak week or a strong one, the fact is there’s a few dozen brand new games of all shapes and sizes below, and chances are pretty good that everyone will be able to find at least one game that interests them
Dungeon Of the Endless [ $4.99 (HD) ] is an odd hybrid. On each level, you’ll take your chosen heroes through a room-by-room search, looking for the exit. The layouts are random, so you’ll never know what’s behind each door until you open it
