Harry Quantum Episode 1: TV Go Home

joyeHarry QuantumA job worth a hundred thousand dollars doesn't drop into a private detective's lap every day. Of course, this particular job does involve hitchhiking into space (and the alien's bargain is a real pain in the... well, you know), but it's nothing you can't handle when you're the star of Harry
Quantum Episode 1: TV Go Home.
It's another joint effort from robotJAM and LongAnimals under their collaboration alias TurboNUKE. Their newest game follows in the witty adventure style of robotJAM's point-and-click hits like The Dreamerz and Panda's Bigger Adventure. Here you play Harry Quantum, a private eye with a sweet fedora whose latest job is to track down some missing tapes belonging to a networks most popular TV shows.

Typical of the genre, your immediate aim is to find and click on some things in the scene to add them to your inventory, and then rub things onto other things until something happens. For example, you could find cheese and meat in a fridge and combine them with bread on the table to create a sandwich. Of course, that would be better known as "joye's lunch almost every day" and would be boring, so let's just say that you're going to have to figure out how to obtain things like a penguin costume, a milkshake, and a pair of roller skates, and then figure out what to do with them once you get them. There are also some more straight-up puzzles to solve, and the usual hunt for codes, which may require taking a few notes. You always have an immediate goal (such as get into space) and of course, your overall goal is to win that totally legit briefcase of unmarked bills, which is how all totally legitimate clients pay for their detective work.

The solutions are usually fairly logical. If you get stuck, feel free to click around with abandon or rub things on blatantly unrelated other things, because sometimes you can earn Private Investigator Points that way. Usually if the combination is particularly cruel. If you've played robotJAM's other point-and-click adventures (especially the Panda series), then you already know if you like this kind of sly humor. Fairly short and linear, the game can easily be defeated your first time in about fifteen minutes. A perfect coffee break game that will be done in a flash (ah ah).

If a square is close to multiple signals, it shows the sum of the numbers. For example, a square that is directly adjacent to one signal (3) and on the corner of another signal (2) shows a 5.

By the creator of the Panda series, eh?
I already know this is gonna be cute and fun(ny).

That was fun! I did appreciate Paul's cool hint ... I only used it once but it came in handy!

I knew this was made by the creator of the Panda games the instant I saw it. Harry grins the exact same way that some of the guards from Tactical Sniper 2 do.

Yep: Elvis and MrT cameos, alien "abduction" with subsequent probing, and your partner's mind getting hacked through wifi.
robotJAM is good.

18 Pips; heres one more besides the ones Todd listed

Give the chart to the nervous patient

ah i feel really sorry for him

that he didn't get the money!

Great game.

how do i get

what the patient is hiding?

i don't understand the

Minesweeper type game. It's very hard

anyone know how to play this?

@Julie
That's odd. In-game, the PIP counter lists out of 17.
0.0 You broke the Matrix!

Loved that Harry keep smiling whatever happens. This game does make me smiles and occasionally laugh!

The game doesn't work for me. As soon as I click on something, Harry's head pops up above the inventory with the name of the item I clicked on (eg, "Filing cabinet"), and from then on, nothing happens when I click on anything else. What am I doing wrong?

I hope that helps!

Oh man, finding the signals are hard. But the rest is kinda easy to figure out.

Could anyone give me a tip?
I can't find the

flashlight. I've drawn the crop circle, but I can only access the field and the office. No flashlight there. Am I supposed to do something with the lamp on the side of the barn?

Thanks!

Very nice - lots of fun :)

The last part of the game is hard.

"follow the lights exactly?"

The lights are so fast i can't keep up with it. :(

looks like i won't finish this game :(

@XtinaS, there's a mistake in your signals diagram for the spaceship.

Squares three spaces away from the signal in a straight line get a 0, not a 1. It's a square with rounded corners, not a diamond. See my diagram a few posts above yours.

Thank you, Chipmunk! XtinaS sent us a note asking to update the walkthrough with the info from your comment and credit that one to you. So, we did. Cheers! -Jay]

...oh, darn, yeah, I forgot to go back and update that part.

I'll send a note to the author here to ask that they replace my diagram with yours, if that's cool. :)

In the VR room, did anyone else think the soundtrack was rather Silent Hill-ish? lol

JIG is my first stop if I get stuck on a point&click. Keep up the good work.

The big link to play the game, located in the green button at the end of the review, is slightly broken.

Fortunately, it's not so broken that I can't fix it on my end, but you may want to fix it on your end. :)

[Thanks for mentioning that. Fixed. :) -Jay]
