Editors' Review

Although this screensaver boasts an original concept, the demo takes a strange approach to feature access. The program simply puts your desktop icons inside of 3D shapes that move around your display. Ostensibly, you can choose from several shapes and enable a jet-engine effect that leaves a trail of color across your screen. However, every time you go back to the Settings menu, the demo appears to disable a different feature. For example, in one instance we were only allowed to use the diamond-shaped icons, while in another we were just given the choice to use cubes. The options for configuring the icon-movement speed and add your own MP3s as a soundtrack are disabled, so some users may find this program a bit too slow and repetitive. Still, the app does accurately render your icons into nicely formed 3D shapes and doesn't force you to install adware like many screensavers do. All told, this program will best suit nondemanding users who don't care much about customization.
