Ashampoo WinOptimizer 10.02.00
Version 10 adds four new modules and better Windows 8 support.

Each successive release of Windows has done more to ensure your OS operates as smoothly as possible with the minimum amount of input from you. But over time, your Windows installation starts to lose its fizz and pop as detritus builds up, settings are set conservatively and minor bugs start to appear.

The appeal of a tool like Ashampoo WinOptimizer is that it promises to fix these problems quickly and easily, delivering a much needed performance boost alongside increased stability. Better still, it promises to then sit in the background keeping an eye on your PC for you, ensuring any problems or clutter are dealt with quickly and easily.

You could build a collection of free tools to do most of what WinOptimizer offers, but that involves installing a number of programs and potentially remembering to run each one at set intervals to keep on top of your PC’s maintenance.

WinOptimizer offers everything in a single tool wrapped up in a pleasant interface. Once installed, activated and loaded, you can quickly search for problems, switch on the various auto-tuning tools or wade into the program’s many options and tools to tweak things yourself – both beginners and experts are catered for here.

Sceptical about what the program can do? It contains its own benchmarking tool so you can perform a “before and after” test of your system. You’ll also find a number of useful file utilities for wiping, encrypting, splitting and undeleting too, plus tools for checking your hard drives and tweaking various parts of your system.

Version 10.0 adds four new modules: duplicate file finder, obsolete shortcuts checker, fonts manager and System Restore manager. The user interface has been redesigned yet again - it's now a battleship grey - and comes with enhanced Windows 8 compatibility, including several Windows 8-specific tweaks. Users can also now pin their favourite modules to the Favorites screen.

Note that WinOptimizer 10 will work as a trial for 10 days initially and 30 if you obtain a trial serial code.

Verdict:

A solid collection of tools that will perform best on ageing, bloated Windows installations, but boasts modern tweaks too such as SSD optimisations and Windows 8 support. Perfect for the set-it-and-forget-it crowd.

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."
