Hi,

First impression: Looks good. I like the fact you've used a favicon as well. I usually don't like the scrolling text, but here it seems to work well.

On further inspection I must say I do like the site. It seems easy to navigate and understand, is well set out, and is easy on the eye.

Maybe one way to improve is make the navigation along the top (the yellow buttons) be highlighted in some way when you rollover them. This is by no means mandatory, but you obviously want to know how to improve and that's just a small thing.

But, if you don't do anything that'll be fine. As I say - its a nice site, easy to understand etc.

Good job!

Oh...one thing - the logo could maybe be improved a bit. It fits in well with the site as it is, but maybe a few small changes, such as making the text a bit glossy, would improve it a little. Again, not a requirement but would add to the site.

Looking at it from my perspective (knowing little about web design) it looks nice, and is easy to use. No time wasted when looking.

You've made good use of apache's mod_rewrite feature, which will help your search engine ranking positions. Your site title is misleading. The site claims to have free downloads but I can only buy software, using your regnow affiliate link?

What exactly is the purpose of this site? It's just a directory of software, each with a 'buy now' link that has your regnow affiliate ID in it.

The text is acceptable, the layout is nice, but of course the advertisements stick out the most. I would use more 'web 2.0' imagery... e.g. mac crap, and perhaps curb down on the ads.

I agree with the others, the logo looks a bit "dated."

Looks good, I like the contrasting colour scheme, I agree the logo is quite
'data". I personally feel the front page is a bit text heavy and lacks visuals, but the content seems great. The 3d effect you give at the top is nice, just keep adding content!

Check your spelling on the pages, first one on the game page
" Clash - new breakout stile game " should be Style

And for things that are free just put "Play game" or "Launch" instead of "Buy Now"
