Screencheat is a ridiculous competitive split-screen first-person shooter where everyone is invisible, so players are forced to look at each other’s screens in order to win. Supporting both local and online multiplayer, combat in Screencheat is fast and furious with a wide variety of one-hit kill weapons.

Reviews

“Screencheat is the Mario Kart of first person shooters and I absolutely mean that as a compliment”
Kotaku

“Easy going in tone but frantic and stressful by nature, Screencheat seizes on a single novel idea and builds an enjoyable couch shooter around it.”
7.8 – PC Gamer

“Glancing at someone else’s screen and knowing exactly where they are would be nigh-on impossible in most shooters, but Samurai Punk combats this through some smart level design.”
IGN

About This Game

Screencheat is the ridiculous split-screen shooter where everyone is invisible so you have to “screencheat” (Screencheat - verb: to look at your opponent’s screens. “Stop screencheating you cheater!”). Master a wide variety of one-hit kill weapons including a blunderbuss, a car engine that shoots bouncing plasma balls and a teddy bear loaded with explosives. Train your skills in the solo time trials then engage in fast and frantic combat with up to eight players locally on the couch or online. With colourful maps, unique modes and a huge number of customisation options including wacky mutators, Screencheat is the ultimate party FPS.


Ranging from the dependable Blunderbuss to the heroic Hobby Horse to the completely crazy Chefolet; a car engine that fires ricocheting energy balls, all are designed to deliver deadly satisfaction. Each weapon comes with its own unique advantages and disadvantages, encouraging wildly different play styles. These include not only the way a weapon shoots but also the 'tells' the weapon leaves such as the smoke from the blunderbuss or the trail of fire behind the Hobby Horse.


From traditional favourites such as Deathmatch to the completely unique Murder Mystery that challenges you to find and frag your specific target with a specific weapon. Play in teams or all against all. Challenge up to seven of your mates on the couch or online or a combination of both, the game is always split screen whether you are on or offline. When your friends aren't around, train your skills and learn the maps in the solo time trials or play against AI bots.


In the spirit of the best arena shooters you’ll spend time traversing 11 maps via air vents and trampolines until you’ve acquired your target and fragged them accordingly. Each map is designed with colour-coded areas as well as plentiful landmarks such as statues, paintings and furniture that allow you to quickly locate other players without being able to actually see them.


Inspired by games like Towerfall we've provided players with a highly granular level of customisation to play the game the way they want to. Choose which weapons you'll allow, how and when they can be swapped or reloaded, apply time limits, adjust the victory conditions, penalties and more. To really mix it up stack on some Mutators such as slow mode, low gravity or flappy jump.

It sounds hilarious, but it doesn't work as well as advertised. When the novelty wears off, it is getting quite tedious to hunt invisible players.

Screencheat is the most fun and funny FPS I've ever played. I never thought that there would be an absaloutly brilliant (thats and understatment) game that is an indie AND FPS and I definatly reccomend this game if you want to mess about in a video game and have so much fun

Get some friends, a big screen, some beers and get ready to be shooting all around like a maniac.

Screencheat is a game that starts very confusing, but makes more sense every match.

With a nice artwork and a proper atmosphere (musics and environment), this game will surely grant hours of laughing and fun. Even though the replay value is not that high, the developers did a great job in adding many game types. Me and my friends used to create tacit rules, as our own "mini-games", extending the play time.

A must play for those who like sharing screens and FPS.

A fun game to play with friends on the weekend, except for trying to track down enough controllers. That's a good thing

One of the most fun multiplayer FPS games that I've ever played. The basic premise is that you see a split screen with all the fighters' point of view, but you don't actually see them on yours. That means you have to "screencheat" and look at their screens to tell where they are and blow them to pieces.
Amazing fun for local sessions too, like the games it's based on. Plus, the dev is an amazing person and always listens to the community (and even plays with them)

If I was a scoring kind of person I'd definitely award it a 10 out of 10, it's got heart and it's great fun.

My 7 year old son loves to play this one with me. He has never played a FPS before, but caught quickly and is now bear-bombing his father to the giggling delight of his sisters. Fun for the friends, family and whoever else that loves to 'cheat' at FPSs.
