WinHex 17.7
Examine files, RAM, hard drives and more with this powerful hex editor

WinHex is, at heart, a hex editor. Though it now has so many add-ons that you can also use the program for data recovery, computer forensics and many other low-level applications.

You may still use the program as a hex editor, of course. Click File > Open, choose the file of your choice, it'll appear in a flash and you can freely browse its contents, or edit them to suit your needs.

It's just as easy to open and view the memory that belongs to a process, though. Which can be particularly useful if you suspect a program is malware and you want to find out more about it.

WinHex can also open drives, allowing you to view them at the sector level.

A built-in undelete tool helps you recover many types of deleted files.

Other options will help you compare, split and join files, erase files securely, or create disk images for later analysis.

And although they're not available in this trial version, if you pay for a Specialist or Forensic licence then you'll have all kinds of advanced drive manipulation tools available: the program can reconstruct RAID systems, gather and display free, slack or inter-partition space, carry out detailed drive searches, and more.

Verdict:

While it's a little expensive, WinHex is also a supremely versatile hex editor with many interesting features.

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."
