Wander around the locations in search of a way out of here.

From generation to generation, after the death of the keeper, a new keeper was born on earth. The essence of the guardian is to protect the sharpened ancient evil in the crypt and prevent it from escaping from it even at the cost of its life. Overnight, the life of the guardian is changing, and his mundane worldly life collapses, as the time has come to give up your debt and protect the crypt from the oncoming forces of evil, which are eager to wake up a powerful being.
 
The game is 2D platformer with a side view where our goal is to protect the structure from opponents. Destroying the waves of enemies, collect coins for which we can buy new weapons and warheads for them, as well as upgrades for the building.
 
Game features:
- 4 types of weapons
- Old school gameplay
-Pixel art graphics
- Fascinating music from Hatebit

Installation Issues:
Pixvault downloads to a 7.58 MB zip file that unzips to two files, (a setup executable and a read me). The game installs to the following path by default, but can be changed if you wish. The installed game is approximately 8.28 MB in size.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Pixvault
Five shortcuts are installed to the desktop, four of which can be safely deleted . If you want the games shortcut to be installed to the desktop, make sure the appropriate checkbox is checked. Even if this is left unchecked you will still get the four internet shortcuts installed to the desktop; (i.e. Falco Space - Online Game!, FalconLine Online Games Website, FalcoGo WebGL Games! and Free Games Downloads!). Also, if you don't like icons installed to the quick launch task bar, make sure the appropriate checkbox is unchecked when the 'additional task's window appears (after the Select Start Menu Folder window).

The Game:
I will post my thoughts on today's game when I've had enough time to play it for an hour or so. Only saw today's games earlier this morning around 1am Friday,and apart from several minutes of game play to capture the main menu and have a quick go, I'll need more time to post a review. From the limited game play experience it's rogue action platformer, with a smidgen of tower defense added. What little I played was quite enjoyable, though I did die several times.

Suggestions:
After you've had an opportunity to play today's giveaway please take a few moments to give some positive or negative feedback; for example, what you liked or disliked about the game, or how it could be improved. If you don't like the genre at all, please explain why and if any, what improvements would change your mind? If you don't have time to post a comment today, please do so at your convenience, thank you. If you wish to post a review or comment about the game later, you can access the comments section by going to the game giveaways home page, then scroll to the bottom of the page where it says Archives and select the date the giveaway was live (giveaway days are in bold type). This will open the appropriate page for you to post your comment or review. Alternatively, you can google the name of the game and include Gamegiveawayoftheday in the search. This should give you a list of links to whenever this game was given away.
If you miss today's game giveaway you can always get the game via Steam HERE; (it's usually £3.99, but has 40% off at the moment).
Problems getting the game to work:
If you're having problems installing or activating or getting Pixvault to work please visit the FAQ's Thread HERE and read through the communities comments because sometimes fixes have already been posted, for example, a common issue seen since the Themida wrapper was introduced three years ago is that some community members installation of the game are blocked by their security because Themida code has been known to hide malware, (usually an error message is flagged for example 'The executable is corrupted' even though in reality it is not); so as a precaution some anti malware programs will block and even delete the suspect installation files even though the files (i.e. the setup, read me and setup.gcd files are actually totally free from malware. This issue can be solved either by rebooting your computer in safe mode with networking or a quicker method is to temporarily turn off your security software to allow the installation. You could also try white-listing the setup.gcd file. In the almost 12 years this game giveaway site has been operating there has 'never' been a game given away that was infected with malware.

The Elder Scrolls celebrates its 25th Anniversary this week since the first in the series ''Arena'' was released in 1994. If you create a free account at Bethesda.com until this Sunday 31st March, you will get a free copy of the third Elder Scrolls game Morrowind HERE. Accessing other Bethesda pages opens up a a pop-up giving you a button link to redeem the code ''TES25TH-MORROWIND''.
Many fans of the franchise still say Morrowind, (released in 2004) is the best of the franchise. Despite its aging graphics, I agree. When I first played Morrowind 15 years ago I was gob-smacked by the game play and at the time the beautiful open world environment. Granted, it looks dated now, but its still brilliant. Later iterations of the game e.g. Oblivion, Skyrim and The Elder Scrolls Online look amazing, though Bethesda/Zenimax have dumbed down the franchise slightly since Morrowind. Of all the games I've ever played, The Elder Scrolls is my number one favorite game. If I was only able to take one game franchise with me it would be The Elder Scrolls, (with its brother/sister game Fallout coming a close second).
You can get also get the first two games in the series free from Bethesda, i.e. Arena HERE(Arena) and Daggerfall HERE. If you buy the add-on ''The Elder Scrolls: Battlespire'' via GOG , Arena and Daggerfall are added for free. The GOG versions come with emulators built in that enable you to play the games without having to mess around with separate emulators (DOSBox).
Also, all the Elder Scrolls titles are on sale in the Steam store during the 25 year celebrations. You can find then all Here until Monday evening.
You can also play the excellent racing game Dakar for free until Sunday 6pm UTC Here ; It also has 50% off at the moment. :)

Laserbeak,

Thank you for your feedback
When I scanned the giveaway using Virustotal, Out of 35 anti virus suits Virus total had one hit via Dr Web (Adware.Downware.932) In my scan Comodo found it clean. The giveaway team have always thoroughly checked all files for download to make sure they are clean. Since the giveaway site started back in 2006 they have never given away a game infected with malware. One hit out of 35 results significantly indicated a false positive. Also, no one else has reported an issue with this file. Doing a little research, Dr Web kept cropping up with respect to Adware.Downware.932. I couldn't find any other security suit reporting this adware.

A bad aspect of "no Steam keys" for the developer, is no one can leave comments on Steam. So the Steam community will never know our opinions.

If I get a chance to play this one soon I'll try to post my thoughts here. I'm happy to get to try a game even if it's not on Steam. I'm getting worried that I have too many eggs in the (Steam) basket... If it ever falls apart it's good to know I have games from here that should still work.

Mr.Dave,

..................................Moderator comment.....................................

Hi Mr Dave, You can still post your thoughts on a game even if you don't own it, but it's more of a roundabout way and not directly in the review section. either by posting it as a reply to someone elses review or via the discussion section of the game. I think it's not possible if there are no other reviews. (not sure about that last bit?)

getting fed-up with these sites doing steam games as non steam downloads ,needs to be nipped in the bud asap.

Reply   |   Comment by ray_ca  –  5 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-3)

ray_ca, I don't understand why that bothers you? There are a LOT of people (myself included) who don't have Steam installed, and never will, because we don't trust it. We have all read the "horror stories" from people who bought a lot of games on Steam and then lost the lot, for example.
So in your opinion, all Steam games should only ever be available via Steam, is that correct? Perhaps you are not aware that many "steam" games are sold in non-DRM versions by the developers on sites such as HumbleBundle? That's how I was able to purchase a non-Steam copy of "Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes."
Seriously, I don't understand your attitude on this.
