Cadaver is a simulated world of cyborgs and nature in realtime. The battlefield consists of forests, grain, water, grass, carcass (of course) and lots of other things. The game server manages the game and the rules. You start a server and connect some clients. The clients communicate with the server using a very primitive protocol. They can order cyborgs to harvest grain, attack enemies or cut forest. The game is not intended to be played by humans! Instead the idea is that you write artificial intelligence clients to beat the other artificial intelligences.

Bomb ô Bomb is a clone of bomberman which features a graphical setup, and many cute little extras (like Tux running across the screen randomly). Bomb ô Bomb is the first game using the Addon technology that enables anybody to change and complete the game easily. The powerful engine of the game ties interpreted solutions to core-modification ability, so non-programmers can modify their game in any way they can imagine, and C++ programmers can complete the core without knowing all the sources. For example, a level can be created in less than 20 minutes with an image found on the net, or an addon (<20k) can complete the game with an option (no limitation to the possibilities of the option), without downloading a release version.

Blackjack is the only game offered by casinos, where it is proven that players can beat the dealer on the long term. Many books and articles have been published about this theme, however most of them are written to make you loose money. The only way of having a moderate advantage over the dealer is to carefully analyze the remaining cards in the shoe, placing variable bets and deciding when to stay or buy, double or split. BBJD is a tool to analyze the best strategy depending on the current card distribution in the shoe. It is distributed to work with a simple text-based interface and with a user-friendly web-based interface.
