It’s time for another Game of the Week!

Game of the Week: Pixel Purge

Developer: EpicShadow created this game, and it is another successful game on their part.

Developer’s Description: The world of pixels is in dark times, a purge is on the horizon…

Pixel Purge is an incredibly polished arcade shooter featuring fast-paced gameplay, stunning graphics and effects, 50 achievements, and more.

Getting trophies rewards bonus starting skill points.


WASD or Arrow Keys – Move Around

Space, Esc, or P – Pause / Upgrade Menu

Left-Click – Shoot

M – Mute

Tip: Your Fire Rate stat is important, secondly, your Fire Spread.

The main menu for Pixel Purge

Note: Those stars only appear once you’ve completed each of those parts. Don’t worry if you don’t have them yet. What?! I couldn’t make this a GoTW without beating it first!

The Play button should be your first action.

Read up on the collectibles. They help a ton in the later parts of the game.

The start of the game...before the insanity.

Let’s go!

I have a fire spread increase bonus, with it it’s easier to…

LEVEL UP! The first few times, leveling up should be really quick, as you can level up to level 6 really quick.  As you level up, you get 2 skill points per level.

What to choose?

I level up my Rate of Fire to 4, Fire Spread to 4, Piercing and Critical to 3, and Health Regen and Points to 2. I have a bunch of extra skill points you get automatically when you complete certain achievements. I have 14 starter skill points.

And then…


My keys stick and I die. This will happen, and when it does, it is best to quit and restart.

Another part of the game is Chains.

Killing enemies without being hit will get your chain score up. Chains mean that you have killed X amount of enemies without being hit by said enemies. More chain means bigger score.

I almost got 3 million.

The keys stuck again. That seems to be a recurring problem. Anyone else having this issue?

Time for challenges. Lots of ’em this week:

Easy: Get a chain of 25.

Easy-Medium: Reach level 10.

Medium: Reach level 15.

Medium: Score 500,000 points.

Medium-Hard: Score 1,000,000 points

Hard: Score 2 million points.

Really Hard: Get all 50 trophies.

Thanks for reading my new GoTW! Check back often for new posts and other cool things!

Welcome to another edition of Game of the Week!

Game of the Week: Harry Quantum: TV Go Home

My Take: A fun point-and-click adventure game, with enough challenge to keep you puzzled.

Developer: LongAnimals coded the game and robotJam did the art and animations, as they have done before and hopefully into the future.

Developer’s Description: Point and click adventure featuring the amazing detective: Harry Quantum.
Finish the adventure, and find all the extras!

Instructions: Point, and click

Tip: Some items can be combined with each other. Use this to your advantage!

The main menu of Harry Quantum: TV Go Home

Hit Play Game, and we are off!

Da office.

After the fool pities you, start looking around the office. You might find yourself getting a PIP (Private Investigation Point). There are 17 of these in the game.

When you’re done head to the farm. Find a way to attract a passing alien spaceship there, so you can go into space and get the signals.

You only have 30 moves to find all 4 signals. The game is like Reverse Minesweeper, in that you want to click near the bigger numbers.

I found all the signals!

The signal placement will be different each time you play, so you won’t be able to copy off me. No screen peeking!

The alien said don't touch it!

That probably wasn't smart...

Now the signals have gotten all mixed up in the crash. Hook the VR 9000 up and go inside to fix them!

Remember...who you are...

After puzzling about a bit, you must complete this memory game to be able exit the VR 9000.

Do that and you win!

Harry gets 100K!

But watch out for the twist at the end!

Anyway, here are this week’s challenges:

(Easy) Find 3 PIPs.

(Medium) Beat the game!

(Medium) Beat the game in under 15 minutes.

(Medium-Hard) Beat the game in under 5 minutes.

(Hard) Find all PIPs.

That’s it for this week! Remember, try to complete my challenges and comment on whether you liked this game and how hard or easy you found it. Thanks for reading and check back next week!
