Impulse is a game distribution platform that will allow us to instantly access hundreds of titles and automatically download them to our PC, at the same time that it offers access to an increasing list of software that can also be downloaded. The titles that form part of its catalog belong to all genres and to the most important independent companies, like 2D BOY, Epic Games, Grisoft and Capcom.

A Gamestop forerunner

The first impression that Impulse offers is that of the appearance of browsing a commercial website tuned for the occasion, even though we will soon discover the advantages and features that turn it into a tool to take into account.

Impulse is a kind of iTunes with its AppStore for games and software. As well as allowing us to browse through its game and software folder that is similar to a website, the program automatically installs all the items that we indicate (by previously paying, if belongs) and it shows them organized through various tabs as if it were a multimedia organizer.

Thus we can mark and classify the games, that are always updated or, if we prefer so, it will let us know each time a new version of the application appears.

What's more, Impulse integrates various social functions so that we can share our tastes with its user community, be it through chats, opinion forums or with the creation of a blog and a public profile. An interesting and comfortable initiative for hardcore gamers that shows us the more than probable game distribution of the future.
