World domination 2 is a free flash turn based strategy game which has so many complex and realistic additions to the formula in the form of how production, technology and diplomacy between countries work, that it borders on being a realistic war simulation. In world domination 2, you pick a famous world leader, or parody of a world leader, as well as the leaders you want to play against and must manage your country (represented as an island in game) as you attempt to destroy the other four leaders islands.

Final fortress is a free downloadable demo for the full game final fortress. Final fortress is  fixed location shooter mixed with RPG elements, which isn't a completely unique concept, but is done in a fairly unique way, with your large cannon being centred in a corner of the screen, rather than on the middle of one of the sides like in similar games. Another unique feature is that is unique to this game and different, is the way the currency works.

Coin world is an interesting platforming demo game in which you play as “Colin the coin” as you take on the evil “bank note flash”. The premise alone is an interesting enough reason to play the game, and combined with the games unique platforming mechanics certainly makes for a compelling game. Firstly though, before I say any more about the game, the thing you may be wondering is “how long or limited is the demo”.

Age of kingdoms is an interesting mix of turn based strategy game with a small amount of war and micro management elements added in to make it more unique, and is a spiritual predecessor to another game from the same developer, castle wars. In Age of kingdoms the goal is to eliminate all the other players from the map, and become the only player left alive. This can be done through a variety of methods, as you will start with just a few very basic units, the lowest tier unit available in the game, and you must make your way up the chain of units by buying better units, which requires money, which you can get both gradually through automatic methods, or by defeating enemies.

Fraps is a video capture utility specifically designed for the recording of other pieces of software, specifically tailoured to those which use direct X and open GL. This means the main use of fraps is for recording games which run on the windows platform. Although there are a variety of other ways to record games on this platform, fraps is the most optimized, so will allow you to record in the best quality possible, while still playing your games in the best quality possible, while getting the best frames per second (fps) on both of them.

Bank robber (the bank robber) is essentially a trial game or a demo for the full version of the bank robber, which costs $4.99, and is a third person stealth and strategy game. In the bank robber you play as a criminal having recently being released (or recently put back in) convict who, as the title suggests is looking to rob a bank. However, to rob a bank you'll need a team, some equipment (which varies from safe keys to remote controlled explosives) and a little sneak peak at the security.

Battle of Britain is a top down strategy and shooter game that takes place during the historic battle of Britain, as the name would suggest. The game takes place from a top down perspective, and has a fairly interesting method of control. Instead of using the arrow keys, or mouse movement to control your fighter planes, you instead click on the plane you want to control, and then use the mouse to draw a path for it. The plane will slowly follow this path until it reaches the end, at which point it will continue to travel in the direction it was travelling at the end of the path.

Inter galactic war is another free ware two dimensional shooter game, falling into the ever prevalent genre of top down shooters. As the title suggests, in inter galactic war you play as a space ship fighting enemy space ships as you fight your way across the galaxy. This is a very generic concept, and the game pulls it off in a way that adds no original thought whatsoever, so if you like games which actually bring something original to the table this game loses points straight of the bat.

Time fighter is a free ware game in the general two dimensional shooter genre. Many of the traits the game has are very generic and taken from and used by every other game in its genre, mainly the two dimensional field, the way the character (which is a plane, fighting against aliens) controls, the way in which you shoot (with holding down the mouse button firing very very fast) and the very generic level system of the game, where you have a limited number of lives, and have to make it through as many waves of the enemy as you can.

Crash boom bang is a fairly interesting and unique puzzle game, which blends the elements of the pretty typical “removal” sub genre of puzzlers, with an interesting extra bit of variation added in the way the game works. This comes in the form of a character selection on each level. Each level will allow you to use a certain number of these characters, and make you use each characters strength in a specific order to complete the level, giving each level a progressively more entertaining and challenging solution.

Many computer users know that over time your computer slows down. Give it six months and if you’re unlucky enough, your brand new shiny Windows 7 computer will be running just as slow as your old XP one was, causing you no end of problems such as freezes, errors, and just frustrating the heck out of you! Thing is, these kinds of issues are purely and simply caused due to our computing activities, as harmless and innocent as they may seem. Just simply logging into Gmail leaves traces and temporary files behind on your system, and Privacy Winner helps to remove these, and de-clog up your system.

WinXP Manager is the tool letting you easily change and personalize your Windows XP based system. Its the edition of the tool released by Yamicsoft for Windows XP only, and is similar to Vista Manager and Windows 7 Manager, designed for later versions of Windows. Installing WinXP Manager took a while for me as I had to install .NET Framework for the installation to complete successfully, however this was completed automatically, and wasn't an issue.

Cloud System Booster is a very up to date and modern looking application. To me, it almost looks like it’d fit better into Mac desktop environment rather than a Windows one. Cloud System Booster exists and aims to clean the unnecessary junk files from your computer, and free up hard disk space in the process. At first look, Cloud System Booster appears to just be a more aesthetically pleasing system cleaner freebie, much like the many other hundreds out there and available to download, however maybe this one has a bit more to show for itself?

Cloud System Booster is split up into four different main areas, each of which can be modified and configured before initiating a scan.

There are numerous ways to download files from internet and everyone has his or her choice in deciding a method depending upon file size, file type, availability and credibility of source.Sharing small files are pretty easy as compared to files with huge sizes. Due to heavy development in P2P, sharing larger files, regardless of their type, is now far easier. With P2P, you can resume broken downloads, making it easier to download large files. There are many good P2P clients, also known as Bittorrent clients, available on the internet and we’ll be talking about one of such called uTorrent.

Secure Virtual Desktop is a piece of software that allows you to enter a temporary ‘Secure’ desktop state, where everything is filtered and anonymous - sounds interesting, doesn’t it? Secure Virtual Desktop is definitely something unusual that I haven’t really seen before.

Secure Virtual Desktop is a single executable that once opened turns your current Windows Desktop into a new desktop environment, where all changes and saves made are discarded, as well as disallowing access to other areas of your system such as Task Manager, Control Panel, USB devices and ‘insecure’ applications.

Angry birds is one of the most successful games of all time, despite the fact that it has been free from the very beginning. Angry birds is a experimental physics game, with the objective being to fling all of your birds into the structures occupied by the “evil” green pigs,  changing the angles on your sling shot to accurately shoot your birds into the most effective areas on the stage. Angry birds is a VERY casual game, so be serious gamers be warned, this may not be the game for you.

Audacity is one of the few free audio recording programs out there, which is great for people like me who need to record audio on a regular basis. Audacity is more than just  the simple “microphone to MP3” software that many will use it as, and although it functions great as a mere voice recorder, there is a lot more to the program to be explored.

First of all, you can copy, paste and delete parts of your audio clip.

SMF (Simple Machines Forums) is a piece of forum software that is very useful for any website owner (or anyone looking to own a website) who would like to add a community forum to their website, or indeed anyone with a forum already who would like to be using a more friendly and compatible script.

First of all, SMF is very easy to install, being a very small download then upload, and then once unzipped onto your server there are very simple set up steps, which simply involves setting up a name for your database, as well as a password and user name for it, and then creating an admin account user name and password for the forum itself.

Vehicles 2 is a great example of innovation in a game, from the very beginning cut scene (which explains the general back story to the game in a very light, humorous way) to the gameplay style, it has a lot of influence from other games in the genre, but for every part the game takes from another game, it is backed up by an original game mechanic or idea. It certainly looked and sounded appealing, even from the very beginning.

The gameplay of this game is a puzzle based system, where the objective is to knock all the “bad cars” (usually black cars) and to park the “good cars” (which are usually emergency service vehicles) in their appropriate places.

It feels better, when the main screen of the computer looks good. However, in most of the cases, you would find the main screen or desktop of the computer is filled with the ugly looking icons which spoil the beauty of your desktop, and there comes the need of Desktop beautification software. Hardly any person out there, who loves these icons but at the same time, no person would dare to not to keep the icons on the desktop as those are useful. However, software is there which would help you to give your desktop a beautiful look.
