Trikanoid 1.2
A quality remake of the classic 80's game, "Arkanoid"

Trikanoid is an interesting remake of the 80's arcade game, "Arkanoid".

If that doesn't help, essentially it's a new spin on the old Atari "breakout" game. You control a paddle, which sits in front of a pattern of tiles. You fire a ball against the tiles, destroying one, then must move the paddle to catch the ball and bounce it back. If the ball gets past the paddle, you lose a life. If you keep it bouncing back until all the tiles are gone, then you move onto the next level.

There are, of course, lots of twists and turns throughout the game. Sometimes you'll have to "catch" falling tiles to win extra points, for instance. There are "aliens" to destroy, and quirky little bonuses here and there - like a moment when three balls appear at once - as well as a very big End Of Game monster if you manage to clear all 33 levels.

And while the nature of the game means it's never going to be the most visually appealing, Trikanoid really is very well presented, with high resolution backgrounds, and quality animations and graphics. Even the music (a notorious weak point for this kind of project) manages to not be annoying.

Please note, though, Trikanoid's controls don't follow the usual PC route of having the [Enter] key as the selector. So when you're faced with the opening menu, use the arrow keys to navigate to the option you need, but then press the space bar to select it.


A fun remake of Arkanoid with impressive graphics and audio

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.
