Plasm Defence is a freeware strategy game that is set in the future, it requires player to tactically place defence turrets in order to defeat oncoming waves of enemies that enter the game via portals in each level. In order to reach the end of each level you must defeat all waves of enemies and prevent a certain number of enemies reach the portal/s on the other side of the map; this number varies between levels based on their difficulty.

The game is not very quick to install, but starts up and runs very quickly on most machines.

Simeranya is a music search engine and mp3 tool that allows users to search through a current total of 7 plugin sites and convert the video/audio to mp3 which you can then download. This is particularly useful because it cancels out the need to mess around with online video converters and other such programs to download and convert mp3 files. Another advantage that this program has over such utilities is that you can compare downloads from different sites, to make sure the mp3 is of best quality as possible.

Website URL Opener is a program that is very useful for opening all of your favorite sites quickly and from one interface. This saves a lot of time if you use a few websites regularly and can be really effective if you have a tight schedule, or you simply don’t have the time to navigate through your web browser.

Website URL Opener is really quick to install and doesn’t require you to install any adware. However every time you open the program, a window will pop up telling you how long there (initially 15 days) is before you have to purchase the application; even if this was the best url opener available to users, it is still a url opener – something I feel should never have a price tag attached.

Wooliz is your sterotypical bubble shooter flash game except a little different. Instead of bubbles or balls, you are matching up creatures known as Wooliz.They a cute little puff balls of wool that once have been matched up grow wings and fly away. It is a cute puzzle game that provides very little. Indeed, Wooliz seems to be one that will be mostly attractive to young girls with little action and extremely girly artwork.

There are times when you need to free up space on your hard-drive, and sometimes you cant always  find what to delete. Here comes the ingenious duplicate finder, that has the ability to find out which files you have that are the same.

The install was very quick and easy, and in a few clicks, I had the duplicate finder up and running. I was presented with the main screen. It gives you a few steps to choose from. The first step is that you can type in a file path, or select folders.

My review will be about smart data recovery. There is always that time you delete something you weren't meant to. Its always that one thing that you don't have a backup of, or any way to recover it. That is the cue to go online and try to find a piece of software that does what it says it does. My review of the smart data recovery suite, and how it functions. I have the advantage of having tried out software lie this before.

Upon running the set-up file and accepting the agreement, you are  presented with a generic looking window that has the status of previous scans along the bottom, with the date, the items that have been found, and the items that have been recovered.

If you own a website, sometimes you  need to put a watermark in your images to protect them from people stealing them. You may have pictures up for sale, and need to stop people simply downloading the sample image you provide and use it for their own personal use. Maybe you are selling on e Bay, and need to insert your user name or company name as an embelishment. It makes the listing look more professional, and couldn’t be simpler when you are using Total Image Watermark!

Total Watermark was very easy to install, a simple set up procedure and then you are ready to go.

These obstacles can vary in difficulty, but for the majority of the time you will find yourself; Jumping off ramps onto other ledges, climbing your way up different objects, making plenty of leaps of faith and continuously falling onto your back and losing the game!

The game, I found, is extremely difficult.

Glest is a real time strategy game in which you battle an opposing team on a large map. In it you are only able to choose from two teams, Mages and humans. There is obviously little advantages for either side, otherwise the game would be imbalanced, so the team you choose is from general preference. The game has nice 3D graphics but mediocre gameplay, but this can be very simply improved by download user made mods for it.

The gameplay of Glest is extremely similar to any other RTS game, you build a main building depending on what race you have chosen.
