The XIVth to XVth century was an age of exploration, conquest, trading and ship battles, are excellent sources for history to be woven.

Galleon 3D Screensaver takes advantage of any sea and history enthusiast's weakness by showing you the majesty of a Spanish Galleon as it roams the open seas.

Unlike other screensaver's from the same developer, this one doesn't emphasize realistic lighting and textures, but rather in other subtle ways that may spark your imagination.

For example, the screensaver's camera angle changes at regular intervals, and in some instances, it shows you how it would look like if you were actually on the ship.

While this may seem small, any sea enthusiast yearning to know how it is to be on a ship that rocks and sways as the sea command it will be thrilled beyond words.

A neat feature is that the screensaver goes through a day and night cycle so that you may enjoy the view at any time of the day.

As mentioned above, the textures themselves aren't that great compared to the other screensavers, and the water's textures and animations are rather static and unrealistic, not to mention the fact that reflexions are almost non-existent.

Another issue is that you have lens flare effects even during the night. Despite this aspect, there are plenty of customization options that will enhance the experience. For example, you may modify the screen resolution, texture and light quality, as well as use images from your library to act as the galleon's flag.

All aspects considered, Galleon 3D Screensaver is a great screensaver to have if you are looking to roam the high seas but unfortunately suffer from seasickness.
