Something for the weekend?

With another miserable autumn's day upon us here in the UK, EuroGamer brings you a selection of the week's demos to keep you busy until Monday...

Looking for something to keep you occupied this weekend? Action fans with copious amounts of bandwidth available to them may want to take a look at the new improved demo for "Gunlok" (98Mb), which features both training and real missions from the impressive looking 3D science fiction stealth 'em up. The demo for "Blair Witch : Legend of Coffin Rock" (93Mb) has also been released, giving you a taster of the atmospheric Nocturne powered action-adventure game from Human Head. Set in 1886, it thankfully has little in common with either the bizarre first film or the diabolically bad sequel.

If you're looking for something a little more sedate, "Virtual Pool 3" (19Mb) may be right up your street. If nothing else it saves you the bother of having to venture out into the cold and damp to get to a real pool hall. Finally, if you need something to keep the kids occupied then why not download the "Kao The Kangaroo" demo (32Mb). Kao is a colourful 3D platform game featuring a kangaroo (funnily enough) who was captured in Australia and trained to be a boxer. No, really. If nothing else, it may bring back nostalgic flashbacks of BBC Micro game "Wallaby" to our older readers...
