Warzone 2100
Fight to rebuild civilisation in this fast-paced rts game

Warzone 2100 is a fast-paced, Command and Conquer-type real-time strategy game. It was first released by Pumpkin Studios as a commercial product, way back in 1999, but it became an open-source project in 2004 and has been available for free.

The story is set in a post-apocalyptic late 21st century, where nuclear strikes have destroyed much of the world's civilisations and only scattered bands of scavengers remain. Your mission is to command the forces of "The Project", and rebuild the world with the aid of recovered technology. Sounds noble to us, but unfortunately three competing organisations have entirely different plans, and you'll need to win hectic battles on many fronts before order can be restored.

An extensive tech tree covering more than 400 different technologies means there are many different ways to play the game, and mastering it, and the many units available, could take quite some time. Fortunately a lengthy campaign and single-player skirmishes give you plenty of opportunity to learn how everything works, and you only need move on to the multi-player mode when you're feeling confident.

What's new in 3.3.0 (see release notes for more)?

- Add: Reinstated secondary orders Pursue, Guard, and Hold 
- Add: Reinstated range orders Optimum, Short, and Long range (too many commits, #314)
- Change: Pressing Escape clears chatbox if it contains text and closes it otherwise (809dd2abdf, #294)
- Fix: Processing of radar input after disabling its widget (39f083ed0f, #4867)
- Fix: Saving of challenge scores (e1b3eac0fa, #4868)
- Fix: Crashes caused by missing support for mipmap generation (a850fb5c88, #260)
- Fix: Improved window resizing and display scaling 
- Fix: Support for more graphics driver workarounds and platform compatibility (d517b62e39, #331)
- Fix: Units shooting through walls to attack targets (4ed887ed19, 5cbe6b9e93, #271)
- Fix: Very slow map/mod transfer when vertical sync is enabled (1d1050f034, #392)
- Fix: Do not try to attack jammed units before being in range (b9cd1cd49e)

Verdict:

Some interface quirks mean it takes a while to find your way around, but once you've learned the basics then there are hours of entertainment to be had from this fun game

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.124

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 2.19.124 

- New privacy settings allow you to control who can add you to groups. Admins will have the option of sending you a private invite instead. Go to Settings > Account > Privacy > Groups to get started.
- Added call waiting support so you can choose to accept an incoming WhatsApp call while you're already on another call.
- Updated Chats screen design to make it easier to quickly scan your messages.
- You can now send messages directly from the Braille keyboard when using VoiceOver mode.
