Skeleton Adventures

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Sep 7, 2009

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.

Developer's Description

Chilling, haunting-just plain creepy, Skeleton Adventures is a screensaver like no other. It tells the story of Sly Slim the Skeleton and show the antics he gets up to at night. Scaring children is just one of his fun past times, but Sly is also a dancing skeleton, a kite flying skeleton and many more things, right there in 3D. And wait until you see the mystery 13th scene. The demo version has only 4 scenes, but they show you a little of what you can expect. Watch Sly Slim as he dances, scares people and generally has fun.

Version 2.1 may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.
