Pocket Planes

Sim games are all the rage and there are games that provide simulations of running cities, train networks, planes, and much more besides. Pocket Planes, as you may have guessed from the name, places you in charge of a fleet of planes which you can use to transport goods and passenger all over the world. There’s a real sense of progression as you upgrade from tiny planes to jumbos and gain the ability to access larger and larger airports.

This is a great game for statistic fans. There are leader boards aplenty so you can see how your fleet compares to those of your friends as well as the rest of the world. You can customize your fleet of planes with personalized paint jobs and revel in a game that harks back to the days of 8-bit gaming console with it very retro look and basic yet addictive style of gameplay.

Despite the fact that there are two different versions of the app available iOS and OS X, the two are identical. This does not mean that iOS users are getting a great port of a stunning looking OS X game, rather that OS X users have to make do with an exact replica of an iOS title that feature 8-bit style graphics and an unoptimized aspect ratio.

This does not necessarily detract from the game, but it’s a shame that the developer has not taken the rouble to make platform specific releases. On the positive side in this regards, however, it is possible to synchronize your games between devices so you can play on your iPhone or iPad when you are out and about and then pick up from where you left off when you get home to your Mac.

Verdict:

A great, addictive little sim game that will keep you entertained for hours.

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.
