FREE - AMAZING 3D SCREENSAVERS TO DOWNLOAD

Hey - Check out these amazing screensavers! These are really high quality - not like some awful screensavers we have seen.

Scroll down the page for pictures, descriptions and FREE download links.

Best of all they are free from adware, malware, viruses and any other annoying software that often gets installed without you knowing or wanting it (often the case with FREE screensavers)!

Mechanical Clock Screensaver

 

Fantastic introductory SPECIAL OFFER! - Get 25% off each additional screensaver when you buy more than one with your order.

Each screensaver is a fully animated 3D rendition of a scene, like a mediaeval castle, or a long-lost pocket watch on a golden chain, or a mechanical wall clock which chimes and you can see all the cogs turning inside and was programmed with advice from a real clockmaker.

The detail in these savers is just amazing, and some of them are extremely realistic!

What better present to get your PC than this very popular Nature Screensaver.



On all these screensavers the view slowly pans around to reveal incredible, realistic and beautiful locations. Personal favourites are the "Ancient Castle", "Mechanical Clock" with its Westminster Chimes and "The Lost Watch". The sounds are perfect - and when music is used it is well chosen too.

Then there are the brooks and ponds of "Nature", with butterflies fluttering about, and fish can be seen swimming lazily, just beneath the surface.

The water motion, lighting effects and even the movement of leaves on trees in many of these savers are absolutely stunning!

Stuck for christmas or birthday gift ideas?

If you are looking for unusual or unique christmas or birthday gifts, gadget or gizmo for your friend or loved one you really must take a look at this - the ultimate in gadget shops.

There's something here for everyone, it's not just boys toys! You will find plenty of things for kids and girls too.


Download and try as many screensavers as you like for FREE !!

The Download file sizes range from 3.1Mb for Mechanical Clock to 12.7Mb for The Castle which is my personal favourite, and well worth the extra download time.

All these Shareware screen savers are on a Try before you Buy basis. Each screen saver has its own settings control panel, where you will also find a Buy Now button for you to register to remove the funny noddy-man nag screen (we just love this because even he appears differently and in keeping with the topic of each screensaver!).

I like them so much compared to some poorer quality screen savers that I have now bought 5 for my PC!

I suggest you start with "Mechanical Clock", because it's smallest, and you can see how well it works on your system.

By the way - these are all for Windows PC's only. Sorry all you MAC guys'n'gals! :-(

You can choose from:-

  • Halloween - ghosts and ghouls and voodoo music, flying skeletons and a devil-ish pumpkin! This is great!
  • Ancient Castle
  • Spirit of Fire
  • Mechanical Clock
  • The Lost Watch
  • Christmas - quite a cool/quirky kind of snowman with fireworks, a bit odd, but quite endearing
  • Lantern - as it says, an old fashioned lantern, swinging in the wind, shining out into the dark. Not that keen on this one myself, but it might light your way?
  • Discovery - a room of maps, adventure...... and candles....
  • Flag - a beautifully rendered flag of your country, parading proudly in the wind
  • Nature - Now this one is a lovely summer afternoon, beside ponds and streams, with butterflies flying about, birds singing and fish swimming serenely below the rippling surface.
  • The Old Watermill - This is very nice too, water tumbling over the wheel of the old mill house, next to the river, water pouring over the wier, trees blowing in the breeze, and frogs croaking in the afternoon sun, birds twitterring in the shade of the leaves. Drift away with this serene setting, guitar music playing gently in the background. This is another of my favourites.
  • Galleon - sails and masts creaking, the waves buffeting under the bow of the ship, and the cannons roar as this massive galleon roams the seven seas.
  • Nautilus - the amphibious metallic stronghold of Nautilus moves sedately through underwater caverns, falling rocks, and commands a steady course past submerged volcanoes. I must say this one has grown on me.

Scroll down - choose and download as many as you like. Try them out and see if you like them as much as we do.

Enjoy.

Cheers!

Jim

PS. All these screen savers have a variety of settings to make them work nicely on lower spec machines (for example texture quality, gamma, screen resolution, plant animation, water quality, animated/stationary cameras, camera delay, etc.), and also allow you to control the volumes of sound effects and music independently of each other, or disable them altogether. You can find tech specs at the bottom of this page.



Mechanical Clock 3D Screensaver

Mechanical chiming clock

Download Now (3.1Mb)

Tired of your regular PC clock? Want something special for you computer screen? Then get this amazing Mechanical Clock 3D Screensaver. It shows you all the "internals" and mechanisms that work perfectly in sync. We've hired a practicing clock master to be our consultant to help us design a realistic clock screensaver, selecting a 18th century Swiss clock as a model.

Mechanical Clock 3D Screensaver always works correctly and is never off, as long as your PC clock time is right. In addition, this screensaver does not require any setup whatsoever. The clock piece itself is so exquisite and so fascinating that some people watch it without interruptions for hours.

This screensaver is great for your home or office PC; it is also great shown on display at any public place, since people can see what time it is by simply glancing at the computer screen. And since it is 100% FREE to download, you should grab your copy right now!

My Comments: This is one of my favourites. There are two types of ticks, a slow one for the main pendulum, and a fast yet subtle wristwatch type of tick for the Second hand. It even has lovely Westminster Chimes on the hour. All the while you can see the cogs slowly rotating, and even the Minute hand can be seen almost imperceptibly advancing around the clock face for each tick. The golden roman numerals have a slow almost flamelike glow which one moment grows brighter, then dimmer, and at the extreme edge a disc slowly revolves. This is truly mesmerizing!

Spirit of Fire 3D Screensaver

Spirit of Fire

Download Now (5.25Mb)

Spirit of Fire is a fine 3D screensaver that will bring the warmth and cozy atmosphere of a fireplace burning in a log cabin right inside your office or home. The fire and the fireplace are done remarkably well. This saver stands out!

The crackling sounds of burning wood, the blinking light, the shadows. The camera moves around the cabin periodically zooming in and out allowing you to see parts of the interior. Great attention is paid to details - the old fashioned clock shows the correct time; the patterns on the logs simulate the texture of real wood; the picture in the frame can be replaced with your own portrait or a photo of your beloved ones.

It is very authentic and original. In fact, some people may even trick themselves into "smelling" the fireplace. And you will definitely find your thoughts drifting away from the everyday problems immediately. Spirit of Fire will warm you up and melt the hearts of even the most serious and mundane people around.

My Comments: I find this one is best with the sound effects turned down to about 60% so that the crackling of the firewood is just nice and subtle.

Earth 3D Screensaver

Earth

Download Now (13.3Mb)

How did you imagine your future profession when you were 10? In my case, I decided to be an astronaut. I was sitting under a table with a saucepan on my head. My space table moved in space protecting the Earth from invaders of all kind. I'd shoot the invaders with a deadly flash-light gun.

We are not kids anymore. But, are you sure that all your daydreams have vanished completely? Are you sure you wouldn't take a chance to look at the Earth from a space shuttle window?

Let's make a test... Today, you can easily turn your monitor into a realistic space shuttle window. I am not speaking of silly space shooters. Earth 3D Screensaver is a realistic 3D globe model. It emulates a space orbiter window. Our planet looks exactly as it is seen by astronauts. You see the blackness of outer space with sparks of stars on it. You are flying around the Earth, a huge colorful ball with a thin veil of atmosphere. This is not like looking on a typical school globe. The view on the Earth from your monitor is so real. It's so easy to imagine... When finished being nostalgic, you can use the interactive mode. Instead of moving by a randomly selected orbit, you can control the globe. Use your arrow keys to rotate the globe.

Earth 3D Screensaver allows you to turn on additional objects in the options. You can see airplanes, and labelled large cities and territories. The most exciting type of objects available are the 3D models of the most well known world objects. For example, you can see the Statue of Liberty in New York, the pyramids in Egypt or Kremlin in Moscow. It's a very entertaining mode and it's just plain fun.

Earth 3D Screensaver comes with a screensaver manager. This neat program installs as a screensaver itself. You can download, configure and launch other screensavers using it. It can select screensavers randomly or one by one. Want to amaze your friends? You should give this screensaver a try!

My Comments: One fo the larger downloads, but there is a stunning amount of detail in this screensaver.

The Lost Watch 3D Screensaver

The Lost Watch

Download Now (3.5Mb)

The Lost Watch Screensaver is probably the most unusual 3D screensaver in the entire Internet. Timepieces are favorites of screensaver artists. But... you've never seen a pocket watch like this. It's an exact replica of an 18th century Abraham-Louis Breguet's timepiece, made by a man who is often called the greatest genius of watchmaking that ever lived. And the best part - that's not the point.

An absent-minded traveler dropped his golden pocket watch while crossing a river. A few coins fell out as well. Years went by, but the timepiece is still working just fine even though there is no one to wind it up. So here it lies on the bottom of the river, with sun bleaks playing across the clocks hands.

This is exactly the picture I saw during my California vacation in the Sierra Mountains near Auburn last spring. I was so stunned by how beautiful it was I decided to create a screensaver about it. So now you can see it too.

My Comments: The gold chain and casing of the watch just look so incredibly real. Obviously the watch tells the time, but it also shows the date, and the Second hand slowly ticks off the time. All the while ripples on the water cause the sunlight to flicker, and even the leaves floating on the water have a translucent quality to them. The attention to detail is just stunning. This really is a beautiful screen saver.

Ancient Castle 3D Screensaver

The Ancient Castle - View from the Sea

Looking vertically down into the main tower

The sun sinks behind the castle ramparts

Download Now (12.7Mb)

This is certainly the largest file to download but it is well worth it.

Ancient Castle 3D Screensaver invites you to walk inside, through and outside this majestic stronghold once belonging to a powerful medieval Lord.

These walls remember the long days of sieges and furious attacks. But they also remember days of feasts, tournaments and chivalry. Knights from all over considered it to a great honor to be invited here. The other guests were the elves, gnomes and other creatures. Yes, this is one of the castles you read about in one very popular fantasy book. Try to guess which one?

Ancient Castle has been specially created using the designs from real castles and reflects the medieval fortifications building codex of the 12-14th century.

The screensaver takes you deep inside the buildings through every level to show what it was like to live back then. Importantly, you can see the stronghold in the day light as well as at night, from high above or the ground.

But stones are not the only thing you are to see - there are flying birds, the sea, a river that splits either side of the castle, and flows into two waterfalls!

Special attention has been paid to the interior of the castle and the lighting inside.

Ancient Castle 3D Screensaver continues the line of historic and fantasy 3D screensavers which is bound to appeal to every history fan. Best of all, it is free to download and try. Download your copy now and place a piece of history right inside your monitor.

My Comments: I just love Ancient Castle. Birds fly overhead, seagull sounds, waves on the seashore, the waterfalls. Flames rise from the beacons over the cliffs, torches burn on the ramparts and in the castle giving wonderful lighting effects, and all the while the daylight changes in real-time to become late afternoon, casting its shadows, then dusk, until night-time when the moon comes out and the stars shine brightly overhead.

The camera angles pan slowly around, and take you inside the castle, through the passages deep down into the dungeons, and the secret stream, and then up the sloping staircases into the towers.

Pleasant medieval music plays which is long enough before it repeats so as not to be annoying. The attention to detail is just gob-smacking and I find myself watching it for ages, particularly late at night when just chilling out.

While some of the other screensavers on this page are more basic, it takes quite a while to get to know all the scenes of Ancient Castle because there is so much depth to it.

On lower spec computers with older graphics cards you may need to reduce the texture quality or resolution if you get jerky camera panning motion - like I said, there is a lot going on in this saver and a decent PC and graphics card will make it shine.

This screensaver is really incredibly realistic, from the movement of the fish, to the sunlight coming down through the water, the slow swaying of the corals and plants and the impression of distance. Simply amazing!

This screensaver has been specially created for all the fans of The Lord of the Rings and J.R.R. Tolkien. If you liked the book or the movies, this screensaver will make a great addition to your collection.

Clock Tower

Download Now (11.4Mb)

Clock Tower will take your mind far from the ordinary world into a quiet and peaceful medieval town, with its small houses and narrow streets. Imagine that you are standing in the central square of the town and observe the beautiful architecture of the clock tower. This is the oldest clock tower in the town and has kept time for countless years. It was built long ago, and since those days it has become the symbol of the town. Keeping its spirits, its traditions, and it's secrets.

Massive gothic styled spires decorate the top of the tower, ancient stained-glass windows shimmer in the sunlight. The aged and worn stones of the clock tower remember the centuries. Town inhabitants have always gathered under the steep clock tower walls in times of sorrow, or to celebrate festive occasions. The Old Clock Tower raises the spirits of the people and they forget all their problems and vanities as soon as they hear the measured striking of the old clock. Life goes on, centuries go by. But the precise clockwork, skillfully forged by medieval watch-makers, continues to accurately move the clocks hands, following the time. With first rays of light, on a sunny day, after the working day, or in a moonlit night, the ancient clock tower always shows you the exact time. Clock Tower Screensaver makes it real!

You can observe the ancient clock tower on your desktop 24 hours a day to know the exact time. Furthermore, it completely takes you to the surreal medieval town. Watch as the first rays of light gently fall on the clock face. You may even enjoy the beautiful sunset. Even at night you can see the clock tower illuminated by the artificial light. The clock strikes every 15, 30, 45 and 60 minutes.

Enjoy the calming sound of the clock striking as the sun sets, and forget about the routine and the problems of a working day. Clock Tower Screensaver will take you to the past into a small European medieval town.

My Comments: Continuing in the vein of amazing time pieces, this screensaver shows the current time on the main clock tower, the centrepiece of the medieval town.

The Old Watermill 3D Screensaver

Mechanical chiming clock



Download Now (5.8Mb)

Watermill 3D Screensaver has been called "a digital masterpiece", or "heaven on your screen", and "one of the most beautiful screensavers ever created." But really - it's just a dream. A dream come true.

If you are living in the concrete jungles and working in crammed dull offices, what you need is to break out and escape to the beautiful place you dreamed about when you were a child.

A quiet far away place, where trees whisper something with their leaves and a small stream slowly flows playing with the rays of the sun.

This is the place to gather your thoughts and quietly meditate. This is the place to reconcile with nature, to feel the grass, to hear the water, to smell the fresh air and see the sky.

You see the old watermill that tells you about eternity with every revolution of its wheel. You feel joy and peace and understanding that life was created for moments like this one.

So - Is Watermill 3D Screensaver a digital masterpiece, heaven on your screen and one of the most beautiful screensavers ever created? You bet. But what it really is - it's just your dream. Your dream come true.



My Comments: Another gorgeous saver, and personally I prefer the atmosphere of this to the Nature screensaver. This is very nice; the water tumbling over the wheel of the old mill house, next to the river, and water pouring over the wier. Watching the trees move gently in the breeze, and listening to frogs croaking in the afternoon sun, while birds are twitterring overhead in the shade of the leaves. Drift away with this serene setting, guitar music playing gently in the background. This is another of my favourites.

Christmas

Christmas Screensaver

Do you like Christmas? Too bad it comes only once a year.

Hey, if you really, really like Christmas - why not have it every day? Christmas 3D Screensaver brings those warm feelings of joy right to your computer desktop. Share these feelings with your family, friends and co-workers.

Unfortunately, a lot of folks can't afford to have a dressed Christmas tree every year for one reason or another - but our PC desktop Christmas tree never ages! In some parts of the world it never snows. It's not a problem with Christmas 3D Screensaver; the right kind of weather - frosty, with a lot of snow - is guaranteed :-)

See, how simple it is? No need to pick a Christmas tree, no time spent dressing it, no worries about what kind of weather it's going to be. One download and Christmas comes to you.

Are you expecting a "traditional" Christmas screensaver? Then you are up for a big surprise. How about a dancing snowman that experiments with fireworks, dresses up the Christmas tree, turns the lights on and off and plays different vinyl records?

Who said Christmas can't be a bit crazy? The screensaver features great sound effects and spectacular 3D graphics. Most importantly, this 3D Christmas screensaver is a cool way to cheer yourself and your friends up during the long, dull workdays filled with worries and concerns.

My Comments: Quite a cool and quirky kind of snowman complete with fireworks - yes, he is a bit odd in a cool kind of way - but he's kind of endearing too! A wonderful and magical scene with lovely lighting from the lanterns and reflections, and the falling snowflakes, you can almost see your breath and feel the crisp cold night air.

Halloween

The Lost Watch

Download Now (6.4Mb)

Most Halloween screensavers are quite boring and plain. But the guys at 3Planesoft think that this extravagant holiday deserves a screensaver that is both artistic, outstanding and smart. And scary, of course, showing all the dimensions of its ancient traditions.

That is why they decided to come out with Halloween 3D Screensaver, the screensaver that brings the spirit of this wierd holiday right to your computer monitor.

Hey, I warned you - this is not some boring pumpkin picture screensaver. Everything moves, flies and makes ominous sounds. Expecting a pumpkin? You will get one - a horrifying Jack O'Lantern served together with skeletons, skulls and shrieking sounds.

Watch out for the monsters that are out there. They say once the screensaver gets installed, black cats run away from the house and small children in the neighborhood start crying. And something about a witch curse, too.

But I don't believe these stories. Then, of course, the last guy who got this screensaver? Well, may be you better not to know about it. I guess if this screensaver is half as horrifying as they say, you ought to download it right now. Unless you are too scared already!!!

My Comments: Excellent fun. I installed this at our office and turned off the music so that only the sound effects were on, and that evening before I left I turned up the volume. It cut-in after 15 minutes and scared the wits out of one of the girls sat at the next desk ! Boy did I get told off the next day!
Te he he!

Halloween Screensaver has a distinct voodoo feel as the delerious skulls fly around, and the menacing pumpkin dances about. The dark ominous scary atmosphere is so thick you could cut it with a knife! If this doesn't get you in the mood for trick-or-treating nothing will.
