Editors' Review

+
We've seen quite a few screensavers based on the hit Matrix films, and this one strikes us as strictly middle-of-the-road. True to its name, this program brings the movie's famous, rapidly moving green computer code to your desktop. In addition, Matrix Code Emulator Screensaver displays well-known quotes from the film, although you can disable this option if you like. You also can customize several aspects of the code's appearance, such as movement speed, density, and highlight percentage. However, we think some users may find the installation process a bit confusing. Clicking the SCR file will only launch the screensaver; you must right-click it or copy it in the appropriate directory to install it. Though this isn't a huge problem, we really think the developer should include a help file explaining this process. Still, if you're a fan of the Matrix flicks, it won't hurt to try this free screensaver, especially since it doesn't come with adware.

"Just like I remember from Win95!"

January 18, 2014  |  By Hollyfeld

 |  Version: Matrix Code Emulator Screensaver 1.5

Pros

Plenty of customization options: "flow" speed, character density, and more! No need to hunt down the folder where the built-in screensavers are kept; the install program puts this screensaver there automatically.

Cons

It uses an installation program, which means one more entry in the 'Uninstall Programs' list within Control Panel.

Summary

I had to rate this download as 5 stars for multiple reasons. 1) The download itself is small (= fast)! 2) The download is a self-extracting executable, which is always easy to use! 3) The download was FREE! 4) This particular download perfectly satisfied my aching nostalgia for those early days of custom screensavers!

Pros

If you like to watch lines of green code(?) cascading, this is the one for you. If you are a Matrix junkie...this is a must have.

Cons

It is what it is.
