I really wanted to like Bombshell. Shelly Harrison is a protagonist straight out of the first FPS golden age. Everything about her style and arsenal was perfect. Sadly, she was trapped in a middling top-down shooter that didn't suit her. For two years, her potential lay dormant, another forgotten mascot for theÃâÃÂ ...

I had a chance to go hands-on with the game in San Francisco with 3D Realms Vice President Frederik Schreiber. In a small hotel room, on a MacBook no larger than my own, I was transported back to my youth and the days of shareware the moment my fingers touched the keys. “Our main philosophy hasÃâÃÂ ...

Carano is back in front of the camera with “Scorched Earth,” not to be confused with the shareware artillery game on DOS back in the nineties, though it plays out like the world was rocked with a few dozen MIRV attacks. From Google: The planet suffered an environmental collapse. The air becameÃâÃÂ ...

I've always loved Monopoly and surrealistic animation, so it feels like Lavamind made Gazillionaire just for me. This trippy business simulator was developed it seems primarily as a teaching tool for students. The original game released as shareware on Windows 3.1 in 1994, but it's the 1996 version,ÃâÃÂ ...

However, security experts often remind to be careful with freeware and shareware downloads. The main task of the minergate.exe is to use affected computer's resources. In the Windows Task Manager, you can see that this process uses up to 60% (in some cases even more) of CPU. Due to this activity, theÃâÃÂ ...

Shareware - deelsoftware. Deze variant lijkt op freeware, maar er zijn verschillen. Delen met anderen wordt vaak juist aangemoedigd en de software is gewoonlijk maar beperkt gratis. Dat houdt in dat u soms alleen maar een deel van de functies kunt gebruiken. Ook is de software vaak niet langer dan eenÃâÃÂ ...

There are many definitions to play with, and few hard lines to draw. The poster-children of '90s shareware, id Software (who you may know courtesy of a little game called Doom), began working under contract for a company called Softdisk, cranking out games like Dangerous Dave in the Haunted Mansion,ÃâÃÂ ...

If you had a modem, you didn't even need another disk! It makes sense that shareware came out of this floppy-copyin' state of affairs, because we needed a business model that encouraged copying. Let's talk about how important shareware really was to the modern business models of computing.

It's a retrolicious adventure from the minds at Slipgate Studios, formerly Interceptor Entertainment, meant to remind you of those golden days of your youth where you'd fire up good ol' MS-DOS for a round of Apogee shareware or something like it for a few levels, then pine for the full game, but your parentsÃâÃÂ ...

The 90's was a decade that defined me because it was when the technology industry evolved to what it is today. The internet allowed us to access sites like warez.com. Warez stood for shareware, similar to open source but not open. Basically, we were able to download games, software, music, etc withoutÃâÃÂ ...
