Butterfly Waterfall

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

This nature-themed screensaver's nonexistent feature set and quirky installation resign it to strictly middle-of-the-road status. After installation, Butterfly Waterfall opens a folder that contains an icon for configuring settings, which baffled us for several reasons. First of all, the icon is basically a waste of space since it merely accesses the screensaver control panel found in your Windows Display option. More importantly, there are no settings to actually alter in the demo, and even if you buy the full version, you'll only gain the ability to mute sound and choose from more types of butterflies. The background image of the waterfall is nice enough, but the close-range scenery appears blurry and pixilated. Also, we found the multitude of fluttering butterflies more of a distraction than a nicety. Butterfly Waterfall's lack of adware is encouraging, but that ultimately can't rescue this screensaver from mediocrity.
