While Skeleton Adventures is technically a screensaver, it could more accurately be described as a minimovie. It tells the story of Sly Slim, a mischievous skeleton, in a series of 13 scenes. A series of different endings keeps users guessing after repeated viewings, making this way more entertaining than the average screensaver. The quality of Skeleton Adventures makes it far and away the best screensaver we've ever seen.
The program's graphics are quite impressive, with high-quality 3D renderings. Users are transported into the spooky cemetery where Sly Slim lives (or should we say, "resides"), and just as things start to get a little too creepy, this quirky skeleton does something amusing and endearing. We find ourselves hesitant to describe too much of the content because we're worried about spoilers, which is not something we ever thought we'd say of a screensaver. The program does not have any user-defined settings or a Help file, and it needs neither. The fantastic graphics, music, and sound effects are just right as is. Our only wish is that Sly Skim was staring in something longer and more substantial than a screensaver; he deserves a bigger venue!
Skelton Adventures has a four-scene limitation on its trial version. The program installs and uninstalls without issues. We highly recommend this program to all users seeking a fun, quirky, and slightly spooky screensaver.
