Air Attack Eng is a freeware arcade game that simulates a piloted attack plane, where you fly over various terrains and oceans destroying whatever enemies lay in your path. These enemies consist mainly of opposing fighter planes and fighter ships, throughout each level you can hover your cursor over pickups to enhance your plane and gain additional health to help survive each mission. You play the game from pilot view, and the surroundings buffer when you get relatively close to them to ensure that the game runs quickly, as well as this a basic options menu allows players to adjust the resolution and graphical quality for extra smoothness.

Battle For Life is a freeware strategy game with a war type theme, where the player with teammates, uses tactics has to destroy the enemy team in an attempt to capture their base located on the other side of the ‘field’.

The game is graphically very basic and is a light, so it should run smoothly on most machines. When loading up, the main menu will trigger a soviet union second world war song ‘the sacred war’, which can get really annoying if you leave the game running on the main menu, after navigating through the menus, sometimes you’ll also find songs overlapping, something which can also cause annoyance to the player.

Flip album is a useful program that allows you to organise and enhance your photo and image collection through compressing it into one manageable file. This can be handy if you need to send your collection to friends or family or if you are simply moving your collection from computer to computer. It is easy to use and aimed at the basic user which means the album making process can be easily picked up by any user.

The software was quick to install, however after opening shortly after install, I found that I had to use the package as a free trial because you have to pay a significant amount of money to unlock the full features of Flip Album.

There are many browsers out there available to download. Most of these are under the radar and not well publicised. SevenTh browser falls under the category of being a not so popular browser, however, this doesn't mean it has less features than any of the more popular browsers out there.

Seventh browser is designed for the Microsoft platform. Installing it was a breeze, and in seconds I was presented with the browsers front page, which I must say looks very good, and loaded extremely quickly.

I am reviewing PC Win Booster, there is a free version, and a paid one. The free version offers only the ability to scan and find faults, and doesn't allow you to change, modify or delete system problems. This is slightly annoying, but gives you the ability to find out if your system needs it first.

Upon opening the program for the first time. You are presented with a dialogue box, which allows you to purchase the full version, or activate and register the one that you have.

Over fifteen years have passed since we first saw the very new and very exciting Windows Start Menu in 1995, seen in Windows 95. The Start Menu changed only very slightly over the next few released of Windows, however Windows XP in 2001 saw big changes, and these changes become permanent in Windows 7, not to mention Windows 8. Some people  were not so keen on the new style of Start Menu, and this is where Classic Start Menu comes into play. Classic Start Menu is a third party application that can replace the Windows XP, Vista, or 7 Start menu with a more familiar looking menu, so that you can get on with your work without having to work out the new Windows Start Menu.

More and more people these days are using their computers to work with sensitive information. A prime example of sensitive information which has gone electronic could be bank statements and other financial records, and unauthorized access to these kinds of documents could be devastating of the owner. Therefore, it is especially important that you securely remove such data from your hard drive as soon as you don’t need it anymore, and properly wipe out your hard drive before giving away or selling your computer.

PDF files are used more and more regularly today, due to their small file sizes, portability, reliability, accuracy, and familiarity. Using PDF’s have become a very popular way to send information around, whilst helping avoid compatibility issues and data loss. The most common application used to read PDF files is Adobe Reader, and users with older computers may find that this opens quite slowly, which can be a real pain! To help and overcome this issue, AcroPDF Systems have developed PDF Speedup, the application to save the sanity of those who work with PDF files regularly, but have slower or lower spec systems.

1-abc.net Registry Washer is one of the many different applications out there that help look through your systems registry, checking for unnecessary and invalid registry entries. These entries are a big player in the contribution to system slow downs and crashes, and its always good practice to try and ensure your system is as free of junk registry entries as much as possible. Using tools such as registry scanners is a great idea.

At the end of your computers life time, a lot of people choose to either give away their old system, or sell it. However, before you let go of your old computer, its very important to make sure that all of your data is securely removed, in order to help prevent it from being misused by any new owners. Data that you need to ensure is properly and securely removed could be online banking details, sensitive emails or documents and so on. The best way to ensure that your data is securely removed is to smack a sledge hammer again your hard drive a few times, however Remo Drive Wipe could help you, if you want your hard drive left physically intact!

One thing that I find puts me off software the most is when developers decide to put ‘Activate’ or ‘Purchase’ buttons in very clearly, visible view.

Counter Strike 2D (Beta) is a freeware top down shooter game which is a unique take on the counter strike series, as it takes the general genre of counter strike (first person shooter, or FPS) and completely changes the genre while keeping the mechanics the same. Counter Strike 2D is  top down shooter which is round based, and multiplayer online. The players are split into two teams, terrorists and counter terrorists, the terrorists must plant the bomb at bomb site A or bomb site B (two arbitrary points on the map) and the counter terrorists must kill all of the terrorists, or if the bomb is planted defuse it in time, or possibly both.

Bar Balance is a freeware puzzle game which takes the basic “connect three” concept seen in thousands of cheap bejewled style games, and actually does something interesting with it, adding a lot of new elements to the game, namely the bar that you have to balance your blocks on while trying to connect three. This adds a physics element to the game, and makes it about more than just trying to connect squares of the same colour, but makes you include scoring, and balance into your decisions.

Mario Space Age 2 is a freeware platformer game that takes a unique concept, classic 2d Mario platforming action from what is generally considered the golden age of gaming, and the best Mario games, from the super nintendo (SNES) such as super Mario world., and taking it and applying it to the theme of a modern super Mario game, super Mario galaxy. This is a great idea in the basic concept of it, but the game does unfortunately mess up as far as execution goes.

Age of Defense is a freeware strategy game which takes an interesting civilisations style route in the gameplay, as you start the game you are cave men attacking each other’s caves, and must slowly build up your civilisation until you have archers, riflemen, tanks and eventually even laser weapons. However, as the enemy are always attacking you (with a continual state of war) and the coins used for upgrading come from defeated enemies, you must make smart tactical decisions as to what to pick, more military focus or more focus on getting the top level of technology first and crushing the enemy that way.

99 bricks (the legend of Gary) is a freeware action puzzle game which takes the basic elements from tetris, a much loved game known by many, and decides to completely change them to make an altogether different experience. In 99 bricks you must stack tetris blocks up as high as you can, until you run out of bricks (of which you only have 99) or until the tower falls down because of structural problems, usually the latter.

The basic gameplay of 99 bricks might seem like it’s similar to tetris, stack blocks and try not to leave gaps in between but you actually need to forget your instinctual placement of blocks.

Box head: 2 Play Rooms is a freeware action shooter game, the third in the box head series which takes place from a isometric perspective, and is a zombie survival game, as you pick a character, and a stage and then zombies will start pouring in, causing you to use whatever you can to defend yourself, with weapons that will upgrade themselves, and unlock new weapons as you kill more zombies, with an interesting levelling system.

The gameplay of box head 2 play rooms (box head) is pretty interesting, you control your character from a top down perspective, and you have to shoot zombies.
