Theres a wealth of amazing Australian film out there and pretty soon youll be able to bring home anything that ever graced our silver screens, thanks to one neat service OzFlix . Hoping to eventually make available Australias entire back catalogue of film (yeah, all 2,000 titles apparently), and aiming for half of that in the first year alone, Ozflixs goal is to make Aussie film easily accessible to both our local and international audience. Unlike other services, the movies wont be removed or replaced, and so will eventually take the form of an archive of sorts. OzFlix will feature its own review show dubbed '@TheFlix', featuring film critics Rochelle Siemienowicz and Thomas Caldwell, which will offer bundle prices on each of the movies reviewed in an episode, meaning a decent saving on some potentially decent films.

What to call this LED strip music visualizer is a puzzler. It lights up and pulsates in time with music similar to the light organs of 1970s psychedelia fame, but it's more than that. Is it more like the Larson Scanner that graced the front of [David Hasselhoff]'s ride on Knight Rider ? A little, but not quite. Whatever you decide to call this thing, it looks pretty cool, and [Scott Lawson] provides not one but two ways to build it. The business end is a simple strip of WS2812b addressable LEDs. It looks like the first incarnation of the project had an ESP8266 driving the LEDs in response to commands sent to it from a PC running the visualization code, written in Python. That setup keeps the computationally intensive visualization code separate from the display, but limits the display to 256 pixels and probably has to deal with network latency.

Perfectly suited to touchscreen play. Since Pac-Man graced arcades in the early 1980s, titles featuring the rotund dot-muncher have typically been split between careful iterations on the original, and mostly duff attempts to shoe-horn the character into other genres. CE DX is ostensibly the former, although the changes made from the original radically transform the game, making it easily the best Pac-Man to date. Here, the maze is split in two. Eat all the dots from one half and a special object appears on the other; eat that and the original half's dots are refilled in a new configuration. All the while, dozing ghosts you brush past join a spectral conga that follows your every move. The result is an intoxicating speedrun take on a seminal arcade classic, combined with the even more ancient Snake; somehow, this combination ends up being fresh, exciting and essential.

When someone talks about bringing back the sounds of the 1980s, your head might fill with Human League and Depeche Mode, but if you played games, you'll instead think of Rob Hubbard and Martin Galway, chip-tune pioneers whose music graced the C64, leveraging the power of the MOS Technology 6581/8580 SID (Sound Interface Device) chip. SidTracker64 is a niche but wonderfully designed iPad app that's a complete production package for creating SID tunes. It's unashamedly retro in terms of sound, but boasts a modern design, with powerful editing and export functionality. If you're only into raw chip-tune noises, Audiobus and Inter-App Audio are supported; but if you're an old-hand, you'll be delighted at the bundled copy of Hubbard's Commando, ready for you to remix. It's been a long time coming, but finally Tweetbot gets a full-fledged modern-day update for iPad.

For Tom Hardy admirers, just landing him to star in a series after several high-profile movies -- among them "Mad Max: Fury Road" -- represents a coup for FX. That the result, "Taboo," proves very good, set in an enticing period and graced with a splendid supporting cast, is a happy bonus.
