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.

Verdict:

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.

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
