Chicken Invaders 4.1: Ultimate Omelette Christmas Edition
Enjoy fun, fast-paced arcade action with this entertaining Christmas-themed game

As you might guess from the name, Chicken Invaders is a Space Invaders variant (with touches of old arcade favourites like Galaxian and Phoenix thrown in), where you must defend the earth from hordes of multi-coloured chickens. No, really.

If you like this type of arcade-style game then there's a lot to enjoy here. The controls are easy to learn, the graphics are appealing, and it's fast paced, but with varying difficulty settings so the game remains fun, even as a novice.

There's also high quality audio and an excellent soundtrack, which if you've tried similar programs before you'll know isn't always the case. There's no irritatingly amateurish bleep-bleep "music" this time; instead you get an original orchestral soundtrack that sounds good enough to have come straight off some TV show.

And it really shouldn't get boring any time soon, thanks to features like the (up to) 4-player cooperative play, or multiplayer mode, that allows you to fight against competitors on the same PC, your local network or the web. Especially as you've also got weapons to discover, 30 unique bonuses to collect, 20 secret features to find, and 120 waves of invading chickens to conquer. (In the full version, anyway - the demo here is more cut-down, but if you enjoy arcade challenges it's still worth a look.)

The above review was for the standard Ultimate Omelette. This is the Christmas Edition using graphics with a Christmas theme.


While it's not exactly Civilisation, Chicken Invaders is a fun arcade game with plenty of extras and should keep you entertained for quite a while, particularly over the Christmas period.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.11

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 2.12.11 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
