Peter Lu: Roulette

WARNING: This game contains graphic images so please don't download if this isn't your cup of tea. Roulette is an experimental and disturbing game created by Peter Lu. I cannot stress enough that if you feel that the game will have a negative effect on you, then steer clear. This is a one button game where you'll find yourself sitting in a table from your opponent playing Russian roulette - you and your opponent take turns firing a gun at your head. The empty room makes the game even creepier than you might expect. Again, only give it a go if you think you have the stomach for it. This is a one button game where you'll find yourself sitting in a table from your opponent playing Russian roulette. Basically, the game is pretty simple, you and your opponent take turns firing a gun at your head. You may sit there thinking, the game is rather empty with just you two, and actually it is. However, that's what makes it creepier. The fact that it's just you and your digitized opponent playing a game of chance. Again, only give it a go if you think you have the stomach for it.

Open Sonic

If you are a big Sonic the Hedgehog fan and enjoy the many titles that was released under Sega back in the day; you'll be glad to know that now there's a free version that you can download and play. Open Sonic is a free Sonic game that reflects the original style of gameplay (along with some modern twists). The game is released by opensnc.sourceforge.net. The cool thing about this game is that it contains almost everything that you've come to love from playing this blue hedgehog. The graphics are great and you carry almost every skill that Sonic and his friends have. Enjoy this awesome open source version of Sonic and his friends. You'll definitely have a grand time getting in touch with your inner kid.

Super Crate Box

Super Crate Box is one piece of arcade marvel that you'll either absolutely love or absolutely hate. If you hate 8-bit pixel art or retro, shallow gaming; then you might want to steer clear. However, if you have always fantasized reliving the wonderful times when players played video games just to have their names emblazoned onto that shiny and shimmery 'Top Score" list; then this game will be your best friend for a good while.

OmniWeb

OmniWeb is a powerful new browser specifically designed to accommodate Mac users. The browser contains plenty of neat features that are easy to use.

It expands as well as exploits on the former's weaknesses like limited flexibility in security controls and managing bookmarks to name a few. You can go ahead and stay organized as well as stay in control of all your Internet needs with OmniWeb. Although there are a few quirks, the browser does offer quite a lot of convenience and ensures that users get the best experience possible.

Pod to PC or Pod to Mac

Pod to PC or Pod to Mac will let you do it all! The applications are built to allow you to transfer music and videos from your iPod or iPhone into your Mac or PC directly into iTunes.
