Continuum 0.40
An addictive online space shooter

Continuum is a top-down view space shooter, that at first looks a little like an old-style arcade game. But don't be fooled. You're not competing with a single, feeble computer-based player. Rather, you'll be browsing the high resolution depths of space, and fighting for power-ups with hundreds of real-life human opponents, because Continuum is one of the best free multiplayer space games around.

Initially, as with most multiplayer games, life will be hard. You start with a relatively feeble ship, and will come up against experienced enemies with more firepower, maneuverability and special weapons. Get ready to be turned into space dust plenty of times before you've figured out how everything works.

Once you've mastered the controls, though, and found a few power-ups to increase your ships capabilities, you'll have more time to explore this new world. You can also form or be assigned to teams, which means everyone gains when they or another teammate collects a power-up. And an on-screen chat system lets you communicate with everyone, make plans with your team, taunt your enemies, and generally get more involved in the game.

To add a little extra variation, Continuum is divided into many different zones, each of which have their own goals and levels of difficulty. It's usually best to start in Alpha West, the newbie zone where you'll get a better chance to learn the basics before people show up and start shooting. But then you can move on to other zones, try more team games, complete "capture the flag"-type goals, one-on-one duels, and more.

Verdict:

It takes a while to learn the Continuum basics, so be prepared to die. A lot. Persevere, though, and you'll find a fun and addictive game

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.
