Chicken Invaders 4: Ultimate Omelette
Enjoy fun, fast-paced arcade action with this entertaining game

As you might guess from the name, Chicken Invaders is a Space Invaders variant (with touches of old arcade favourites like Galaxian and Phoenix thrown in), where you must defend the earth from hordes of multi-coloured chickens. No, really.

If you like this type of arcade-style game then there's a lot to enjoy here. The controls are easy to learn, the graphics are appealing, and it's fast paced, but with varying difficulty settings so the game remains fun, even as a novice.

There's also high quality audio and an excellent soundtrack, which if you've tried similar programs before you'll know isn't always the case. There's no irritatingly amateurish bleep-bleep "music" this time; instead you get an original orchestral soundtrack that sounds good enough to have come straight off some TV show.

And it really shouldn't get boring any time soon, thanks to features like the (up to) 4-player cooperative play, or multiplayer mode, that allows you to fight against competitors on the same PC, your local network or the web. Especially as you've also got weapons to discover, 30 unique bonuses to collect, 20 secret features to find, and 120 waves of invading chickens to conquer. (In the full version, anyway - the demo here is more cut-down, but if you enjoy arcade challenges it's still worth a look.)

Verdict:

While it's not exactly Civilisation, Chicken Invaders is a fun arcade game with plenty of extras and should keep you entertained for quite a while

Unreal Engine 4.8

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."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
