Hilarious Castaway-Themed Screensaver Makes for Hours of Fun!

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! View full description

PROS

  • Much more interesting than most screensavers.
  • Seemingly endless developments on the theme.
  • Still works effectively as a screensaver.

CONS

  • Some bugs do detract from the entertainment.

Not bad
