kkrieger beta
A first-person shooter in under 100KB

Kkrieger is a portable first-person shooter in a single 95KB executable.

The program was written in 2004, and despite its tiny size, it looks and feels much like similar games of the day. You must run around a maze of corridors to an atmospheric soundtrack, picking up guns, ammo, health packs and more, while shooting assorted monsters before they get too close.

Controls are mostly keyboard-based, and also much the same as other programs: press W/ A/ S/ D to move around, space to jump, 1-5 to switch weapons, left mouse button to shoot, and Esc to pause or close a game.

PLEASE NOTE: Kkrieger doesn't run smoothly with modern Windows and PCs, and there's a good chance it won't launch at all on the default settings.

To run the program successfully, right-click pno0001.exe, select Troubleshoot Compatibility > Try Recommended Settings.

Alternatively, create a shortcut for the program, right-click it and select Properties > Compatibility. At a minimum, check "Run this program in compatibility mode for" and select "Windows XP (Service Pack 3)".

BEWARE: kkrieger needs to take full control of your hardware to run successfully, and this means running full-screen and grabbing your mouse. That's not an issue while you're playing, but if you Alt+Tab away, you might find you can't move the mouse or Alt+Tab back. To avoid problems, close kkrieger properly via the Esc menu rather than switch away, and ideally save any current work before you play the game.

Verdict:

Kkrieger probably won't hold your interest for long as a game, but squeezing this much functionality into under 100kb is still a hugely impressive technical achievement.

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.
