CNET Editors' review
Featuring compelling animations and slick imagery, matrixgl for Mac brings with it the spirit of the "Matrix" movies. While running, the glyphs on the screen animate themselves to form mosaic representations of various characters from the popular trilogy.
matrixgl for Mac installs in no time. Once the installation is finished, you are taken to the screensaver preferences where you have to choose it as your default screensaver. It has just a handful of options to adjust, the most notable being the toggling of the mosaic images on and off and the changing of the theme color. You are presented with a blue and a red alternative (perhaps a reference to the pill scene in the first movie?) to the classic green theme. You also have the option of removing the credits when starting the screensaver. Additionally, you can choose whether to apply the screensaver only to your main display or to all monitors.
If you're a fan of the "Matrix" trilogy, matrixgl for Mac helps you get immersed in the universe depicted in the movies. It's quite basic with only a few configuration options, but it can delight the movie fans.
This is a ScreenSaver Module for Mac OS X. It's a port of the Windows/Linux OpenGL ScreenSaver made by Alex & Eugene Zolotov and modified by Vincent Launchbury.
