Steam Spotlight: Play guardian angel in 'Harold' for Windows

10

Welcome to the latest installment of our semi-weekly feature, Steam Spotlight! Here we will look at interesting games available on Steam, the popular digital distribution platform for Windows computers. Today's Spotlight title is Harold from Moon Spider Studio, not to be confused with horror game Hektor from Rubycone. All those H names!

Endless running games: you can find about a million of them on mobile and PC, and they kind of blend together after a while. Harold dares to be different by combining endless running with genuine hardcore puzzle mechanics. The result is a game that looks like a platformer but plays like a tough-as-nails puzzle game. It also boasts a beautiful art style and a truly unique premise (you play as a guardian angel for the world's worst distance runner), so there's that.

Available for low-memory Windows Phones and Windows 8 devices, Prime World: Defenders is a nice addition to the tower defense genre of games and a entertaining time consumer.

How to dual-boot Windows 10 Technical Preview alongside Windows 8.1

106

Creating a dual-boot system will let you safely test Windows 10 Technical Preview using the full power of your PC's hardware alongside Windows 8.1. In Windows 10, Microsoft is doing something differently as it's letting customers download and install versions of the operating system early on, so users get a sneak peek of what is to come. But also it helps Microsoft to get more feedbacks and design an operating system that people will actually like.

However, because the operating system remains an unfinished product, it has numbers of bugs, and there are many features that don't work. As such it's not recommended to use it as your primary operating system.
