Attractive fall screensaver

Enjoy an autumn scene on your desktop with this lovely screensaver.

Golden Autumn 3D Screensaver is an attractive program that lets users view a coming autumn scene on their desktop. Although a few aspects of the graphics could be better, overall, this is a very enjoyable program.

The screensaver starts and users are transported to a parklike setting that is full of turning trees. A soft rain falls and gentle music plays. We encounter various points of interest throughout the park, such as a gurgling fountain and ducks swimming in a canal. The program made us feel relaxed and a little wistful. Our only disappointment was that the colors of the leaves weren't more vivid; one would think that if someone were going to go to the trouble of creating an autumn-themed screensaver, the leaf color would be one of its main attractions. We suppose the program could be credited with realism, as sometimes fall colors just aren't that spectacular, but we expected a little more. The program comes with its own interface, which was simple and easy to navigate. Users can adjust the rate at which the rain and leaves fall, turn the music on and off, and adjust the format in which the time is shown in the bottom right corner of the screen. Although it's not perfect, the program is definitely among the better screensavers we've seen.

Golden Autumn 3D Screensaver has a 60-second trial period, and then a nag screen appears. The program installs politely but leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users.
