"Great, it was exactly what I was looking for. And it is Open Source!" (Leandro Dardini)

"My only complaint: "Don't Panic!" should be written in larger and friendlier letters." (Muntoo)

"I think this program deserves at least to be tried, because it does a simple job and it does it flawlessly." (

"As far as boss keys go, Don't Panic! truly appears to be the best of its kind. In fact it comes close to being perfect due to the fact that it is lightweight and resource friendly as well as completely free. Assuming you need a boss key for whatever reason, you should look no further than this one." (
