JogoBox 1 beta
Play thousands of games for free, no registration required

JogoBox is a simple tool which makes it easy to find and play thousands of games, all for free and with no registration required.

The JogoBox client neatly organises its offerings into eight categories - Adventure, Brain, Fighting, Girls, PC Games, Racing, Skills and Sports - and choosing any of these will display matching games. So clicking "Brain", for instance, revealed versions of Tetris, Mahjong, Bejeweled and assorted similar favourites.

But there's plenty more on offer here, including big names like Sid Meier's Civilization, Command and Conquer: Red Alert, Wing Commander, Warcraft, Transport Tycoon, DiscWorld, and the list goes on.

And while most of these are very very old indeed, JogoBox have done their best to make them playable on modern hardware by bundling them with DOSBox.

So if you decide you'd like to play Command and Conquer: Red Alert, for instance, you'll first have to wait for the more than 500MB download. But once it arrives, there are no installation hassles, no configuration concerns at all. The program simply opened in a window on our test PC, ready to play immediately.

JogoBox does offer more than just links to ancient game setup files, then, and is probably worth installing just to see what the service has to offer.

Verdict:

A quick and easy way to find some great (if occasionally rather old) games

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
