Stealth Bastard game
Need past the security cameras in Stealth Bastard

Modern gaming has seen an understandable movement towards first person shooters and 3D adventure games, but anyone who grew up playing games in the 80s and 90s will remember the fun that could be had with 2D platform games. While such games till exist, they are few and far between, and the amusingly named Stealth Bastard – with the equally pleasing sub-title of Tactical Espionage Arsehole – is an even rarer beast. This is an old-schoool platform game available to Windows users completely free of charge.

The idea behind the game is simple. You need to work your way through a series of increasingly complicated levels, avoiding the glare of security cameras and lasers, hacking terminals to open locked doors and avoiding the enemy every step of the way. If reaching the end of each level is not enough of a challenge, you can try to hit the leaderboards, or simply try to beat you best time.

There is little danger of tiring of the game as even once you have completed every single level in record time, there is a built in level editor available that can be used to create your own from scratch. Creating your own fiendishly difficult levels is a great way to extend the life of the game and put your friends to the test.

It would be easy to be drawn into Stealth Bastard out of sheer childish pleasure at the title – and there’s nothing wrong with this. But there is more to the game that just a name. For older gamers it serves as a slice of nostalgia that demonstrates that a game does not need to be unendingly complex or feature photorealistic graphics in order to be entertaining. This is simple gaming fun at its very best and one that should not be missed.


It’s fun. It’s silly. It’s free. If you don’t take your gaming too seriously, Stealth Bastard is well worth a look.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.8

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.8 brings:

• 3D Touch: Support for 3D Touch on iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. You can now quickly Peek and Pop pictures, videos, links, contact cards, and locations you send and receive in chats. 
• The WhatsApp interface is now mirrored and optimized for right-to-left languages like Arabic (iOS 9+).
• Bug fixes
