Retro arcade fun

Dave Gnukem is a 2D scrolling platform game similar to, and inspired by Duke Nukem 1.

The program started life in 1994 and didn't see any significant development between 2004-2016, so it's no surprise that it's a little basic.

How basic? The game help describes the plot as "Shoot anything that moves".

Still, there are plenty of plus points. The package is compact (<7MB). Doesn't need installation. Doesn't have any stupid dependencies. Runs on the most ancient of PCs up to Windows 10 systems.

It's also good fun to play, if you like this kind of thing, and has the supporting features you'd expect (redefine keys, save/ resume game, high scores etc).

2018/04/03 - Version

[3 Apr 2018] Change it so that you must first turn cheat/debugging stuff (Ctrl+Shift+G) on before using F4 or F5 for sprite/level editor
[1 Apr 2018] Add Shift+F10 to start/stop auto-save screenshot-per-frame sequence (warning, eats disk space very fast)

Verdict:

Worth a look for anyone who enjoys retro 2D platform games.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.81

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.

What's New in Version 2.18.81

- You can now use Siri to send messages to WhatsApp groups.
- Group voice and video calls are now available. When you're in a call, tap the “Add Participant” icon. Group calls support up to 4 total participants.
