About

Screencheat is a rare kind of game that encourages its players to cheat. It is an online multiplayer-only game that allows a sort of second-person view. The players cannot see their opponents, but they can see what their opponents see.

Premise

Screencheat is based on the idea of "screen cheating," a form of cheating in local multiplayer in which the cheaters peeks at the other players' monitors to see what they're doing. This kind of behavior is unwelcome in most games, but Screencheat is built around it.

The characters in the game are invisible, and the players cannot see each other. However, they have access to other players' views. The screen is divided into four segments, in the vein of Goldeneye 007. Each of them translates a player's view so that everyone can see what the others do. It allows the opponents to track each other by detecting the locations of other players in respect to the environment.

Gameplay

Beyond its novel idea, Screencheat is played as a regular 3D shooter. The player controls his or her invisible protagonist from the first person view. The characters have no hit points and die instantly if injured. The game offers a variety of weapons with different stats of accuracy and range, such as a shotgun, a grenade launcher, or a rifle. There are also comical improvised melee weapons such as a hobby horse.

Screencheat reviews and comments

Real game principle, a shooter where pure aim skills are not enough. Here, the screen must also be closely followed by the co-Spaniards:) For the game I born + + + it brings with it a lot of fun and confusion! Clear purchase recommendation!

ScreenCheat is a very nice classic shooters arena but very effective. It consists of looking on the screen of opponents in order to locate their positions (thus being invisible). What drives us to become deceit is strategical customization is great especially at the levels of rules and game modes. Unfortunately, there are only 10 weapons available at stake

I have only played the game in multiplayer-mode locally. The main aspect is the gameplay which works pretty well. There are some crazy weapons that go well with the main theme of screencheating such as a wallhack gun and a motorized teddy-bear-bomb that you can easily spot on your enemies screen, so you know when to detonate. The maps are made so you can easily orient and figure out where your enemies are. The graphics are rather mediocre but serve the purpose. So far I enjoyed the game and I can recommend it.

Screen cheat is a game that is played on several, on a single computer, ideally! This is a most classic FPS at a close detail: you and your opponent are invisible! The only chance to win is... Cheat? Oh, Yes! Look at your opponent's screen, yours, and be the fastest an excellent little unpretentious game that will delight the afternoons/evenings with friends! Many customization options in the parties to renew the fun and interest, very modest recommended configuration, small price (see very small price during the balances), in short, screen cheat has everything of a great game, absolutely indispensable for amuse the Gallery!

In Screencheat, it is finally no longer buoyed to look briefly into the Areas of the Players when Split-screen, to see what they are doing. This is even Part of the Concept. The other Players are invisible in their own Viewing area. Therefore, this is almost the only Way to find out where the other Players are at the moment. This makes for a short Time really Whimsy. Unfortunately, of course, for such a Co-op Title you need several equally strong Friends, which is what it always suffers from with me. Unfortunately, you can't connect four Mice to the Computer either, which is why everyone has to play with the Gamepad. From my Point of view, you can play a Shooter but not sensibly with the Gamepad (who can do it is supposed to be happy). Therefore, Screencheat is a nice and funny Idea for me, but it doesn't really work in the Implementation. The Number of Levels could also be higher. 2/5
