X-Bomber
A fast vertical-scrolling space shooter

X-Bomber is a fast and free vertical-scrolling space shooter game based on the Japanese sci-fi TV series, Star Fleet.

This isn't just another basic arcade clone where you'll be bored after 5 minutes. There are 17 missions, several ships with assorted weapons, a host of enemies with decent AI, dynamic in-game dialogue, plenty of space and planetary environments, appealing graphics and a professional soundtrack which can optionally be replaced with your own MP3s.

If this is all a little much then you could tweak the difficulty level, or maybe get help from a friend by using the 2-player mode.

There's a lot to explore and initially it can seem a little overwhelming. But there's a tutorial mission to walk you through the basics, while an online help page gives you some background on the storyline and characters.

Version 0.84 changes:
 

System
- Migration from Multimedia Fusion 2 to Clickteam Fusion 2.5 runtime
- 'Night mode' enabled and other consistency improvements in mission 11
- 'No instruments mode' available in options menu

Gameplay
- Dai-X special weapon; Quantum Buster rebalanced with new features and graphics
- Mission 11 underwater wingmen added

Graphics
- Bullet muzzle flashes and impact animations
- Dai-X Special Weapon 3; RFSG, and 4; plasma grenades improved
- Engine glow and afterburn for Booster Packs
- Underwater bubble particles and other mission 11 graphics improved
- Mission 9 - stage 1 graphics improved

Verdict:

It'll take a few minutes to find your way around, but there's plenty of help, and once you've mastered the basics X-Bomber should provide hours of fast-paced arcade fun.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.42

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 2.17.42

• Pin chats to the top of your chat list, so you can quickly find them. Just swipe right on a chat and tap the pin icon.
• You can now send documents of any type. To send a document, open a chat, tap attach — document. 
• When you receive multiple photos, you can now tap and hold on the group of photos to quickly forward or delete all of them.
