Screensavers do what they say on the tin: the moving pixels of the screensaver prevent static images getting burned onto the monitor itself. As such they're a necessary part of the computer software. The problem is there is a lack of truly entertaining screensavers but that has changed with Gnudawn's free Johnny Castaway Screensaver. Users who find themselves idly watching this screensaver are amazed by Johnny's seemingly endless antics!
Johnny is a castaway on a small desert island he keeps himself entertained with numerous hobbies including sleeping reading fishing lighting a fire and building a raft.In the Johnny Castaway Screensaver many of these activities have variations: when fishing Johnny often catches a fish an octopus and a boot occasionally he's carried out to sea by a shark. When sleeping he's occasionally tied up by pirates. This screensaver has enough variations to provide a source of endless fascination for computer users.
King of Screensavers
The Johnny Castaway Screensaver has spawned a cult following of users who watch to see what Johnny does next. Many of them contact the developer with new variations they have spotted and 'Johnny watching' has become a hobby for many. For a free product a lot of thought and work has gone into this screensaver.
Much more interesting than most screensavers.
Seemingly endless developments on the theme.
Still works effectively as a screensaver.
Some bugs do detract from the entertainment.
"Brilliant programming it is a shame it is no longer available"
I remember this from years ago. It is the best and most amusing screensaver ever developed. It is a shame that one doesn't see these on a regular basis any more. The developers at the time were brilliant!
