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

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."
