Ancient Castle 3D Screensaver is a screensaver application which allows users to view 12th to 14th century castles. The display shows both internal and external views of the magnificent castles of that time. Screensavers are initially designed to prevent the computer screen from turning black when the computer is left idle for some time. However, its purpose has evolved to include security and information display.
Ancient Castle 3D Screensaver offers different views of the ancient castles. It allows users to see the ancient castles at day and at night. It has camera angles which run from high above to ground level, as well as inside and out. Apart from the three-dimensional graphic representation of the ancient civilization, the screensaver also displays images of flying birds, a sea, a waterfall, and a river. The intricacies of the interior design of the 12th to 14th centuries were also displayed with appropriate lighting to reflect not only the creativity but also the medieval fortifications of that time. Background music accompanies the screensaver as well. The software can be downloaded for free but requires a registration code for it to be installed successfully. On the settings menu, users can specify the amount of time which the computer needs to be idle before the screensaver is displayed. Users can also make adjustments on the volume of the background music.
