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.

This is my favourite split screen game to play with friends. It' crazy fun playing with four people and trying to look at everyone's screens at once to try to find them. There's a lot of fun unique weapons and the level design is really well done. There is almost never anyone playing online though so I wouldn't recommend buying this game unless you have friends to play it with.

Toss'em and bag'em.
Enjoy.
It's good.
Not great.
But seeing that you are a
business man, Mr. Santiago.
Captain.
Captain.
My associates and I are willing
to negotiate, a reasonable price.
Let's say, 100,000.
One million for the entire take,
Not a penny less.
A steep price for a small catch.
A pod of 20,000 sharks are
migrating in this direction.
When we're through with it,
One million will look like a bargain.
If you're looking to negotiate, Mr.
Palmer, look for an insurance salesman.
I do believe we have a deal.
All hands on deck. All hands on deck.
Tie the sails!
Get the fins to the gally!
Captain there is a north
wind hitting us fast!
You need to get up here.
I think this is for you
captain. The deposit.
You'll receive the rest when we dock.
You know the most important
thing I learned out here?
We shouldn't be afraid of the sharks.
They are the ones that
should be afraid of us.
Salud.
What the hell is that?
They're called waves. They
do that from time to time.
The storm is too strong. We are
going to have to go around it.
Make it happen. I'm going down below.
Captain!
Change of plans Captain. I'm
going to take the money, your
cargo, and what's left of the ship.
Aah!
I don't think so.
Crazy waves out there today.
Something unnatural about it.
There's something
unnatural about everything.
Lots of scenery today.
I'm gonna focus on the waves.
You better hurry mate.
The clouds are coming in.
Whoo! Reminds me of the
nationals in 04. Remember?
You totally ripped that bugger. I thought
you were going to be rag dolled for sure.
You know we really don't
talk like that, right?
You doing a ride-out or not?
Sure. Thanks.
It's totally cooking out here mate.
You're not kidding. It's a Mexican
hurricane. Bad for them good for us.
Isn't that a drink?
Hit. Hit! Whoo!
Good Morning California this
is Joni Waves. That's Joni with
with an "I". You may have noticed this
morning the unusual
weather here in Southern
California. The clouds
coming in over the ocean
and the large waves are proving difficult
for surfers. I'm here in Santa Monica with
some breaking news about Hurricane David.
It's been pounding the
west coast of Mexico.
Pushing it's way up to the coast to the
state of California. It seems to
be driving a very dangerous surf.
No kidding. Fin's out there.
Yeah but I won't worry about Fin, I
mean he's the best surfer I've ever seen.
Except for me of course. In my prime.
When was that George? The Civil War?
Eh, I'm not that old. You
know I got some moves babe...
Hey! What did I tell you? You can touch
everything at this bar except for me.
Hey! Come on!
Oopsies! Looks like you need another drink.
Yeah a free one. One on the house.
One that doesn't cost me any money.
How come you never talk about
that scar, right there on your leg?
There's nothing to talk about.
I cut myself shaving.
4 bucks.
4 Bucks? I thought it was on the
house. You spilled the last one.
Perhaps the silver lining
of the storm is that it has
driven away the recent influx
of sharks in our area...
Yeah I hope it does. Hope it does.
I hope the storm kills'em.
I hope it kills them all.
Me too. You have no idea.
Tired already?
What's the last time you
short boarded, old timer?
I never stopped. I just
like the way this one rides.
Yeah. Whatever.
Alright grandpa. I'm gonna
show you how it's done.
Grandpa?
Show her how it's done, Grandpa!
Come on. Oh!
Deanna there's a shark!
Hey get outta the water!
SHARKS!
Hey Get out of the water!
Sharks! They're coming in!
Get off the beach!
Get out of the water!
Sharks! Get out of the water!
SHARKS! Everyone out
of the water, right now!
Everyone out of the water
now! We're evacuating
the beach. Everybody off
the beach immediately.
Aaah!
Come here you bloody shark! Come on!
Aaah!
Baz!
Baz!
Aaah!
Just hang on. I'm gonna get you in.
These sharks of yours have no etiquette.
Etiquette?
I thought you were Australian not British.
Tasmanian buddy.
Just hang on, I'll get you in.
What were you thinking?
You could have been killed.
I'm fine.
Aah!
We need a tourniquet.
Here use this.
It's just a-aah! Little nibble.
Aah!
Are you okay? Are you sure?
He must have wanted a snack.
Sharks don't like vegemite.
It's not funny. Aah.
Hey. You gonna be okay?
Yeah. I'm fine.
Hey can I get some of
those tasty nuts. Thank you.
And then. Are you listening?
The shark opens it's mouth.
Goes to swallow Fin whole but Fin
looks at the shark. Do the look.
No, do the look.
Oh my God.
Yeah that one. And the
shark goes, 'You know what?'
I'm ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ off. I'm not gonna
mess with the world champion
surf legend, Finley the Fin
Shepard. Ain't that right?
On you mate.
I don't believe it. You guys are nuts.
Look.
Do you see that?
- Oh yeah.
- It's a little nibble.
So he gives him a look and
you give him a nibble...
No, HE gave me a nibble.
I don't know. Are you guys going
back out there and doing any swimming?
With the sharks?
It's a storm.
It's what's driven them all up north.
Eventually they'll go back
from where they came from.
I hope. But the were knocking.
Yeah, knock, knock, knocking on your door.
And I never seen so
many of them, or so bold.
It's just a storm. Just gotta stay out
of the water for a couple days that's all.
Just a storm?
Looks like a hurricane.
I'm just happy you're okay.
Hey, hey, what are you doing?
What? Do you think you're too old for me?
No, I'm your boss.
So?
So? Go get back to work.
Hey! I'm not too old for ya.
I don't think.
I'm not your boss.
Daddy issues. Hey! I'm
not judging you darlin'.
Ouch!
I have daddy issues too.
- Here to issues.
- Yeah!
Who's is this?
Hurricane David is poised to
be the first hurricane to hit
the state of California. And it is now
barreling toward the
Santa Monica shorelines.
We have suffered tropical
storms in the past but
we have never been hit
by a storm quite like
this. Wide spread flooding is expected
and experts are saying global warming
is the reason for this unprecedented event.
We will be back with
more news as it develops.
Hello. Wexler residence.
April it's Fin.
Yeah Fin I know your
voice. What do you want?
Look I'm just calling to make sure...
When did you go back to using Wexler again?
Cause that's my name.
Look Fin I'm really busy.
Just calling to make sure
you and Claudia are okay.
There's a bad hurricane
rolling in and I want...
Is this about money?
Because if this is about money
Fin, I told you already that...
It's the storm. I just want
to make sure guys are okay.
Of course we're okay.
It's barely even raining.
Look, it's really sweet
that you are calling in
to check in on us but
Collin already checked the
drains and, we're gonna be
fine. They're cleared out.
Well it's flooding here and
not the plumbing. The ocean.
I think you guys should get out of town.
What are you talking about? We
are 100 miles from the ocean.
You are exactly 6.6 miles from the ocean.
And on a day like today
it's not far enough.
I'm gonna take you and
Claudia further inland.
And what about Collin?
You know you are not the only
one that can keep us safe.
We're not going anywhere.
Fine. Then just let me get Claudia.
We'll make it my week for the month.
Is that what this is about?
No!
Look you are gonna see her on the 20th like
you always do. I gotta go okay. Bye Fin.
Who's that?
My wife.
That is his wife.
- Yeah his wife.
- Shut up Baz.
Alright everybody, listen up.
I'm closing the restaurant.
Storm is coming and it's coming
fast. Get home safe everybody.
Don't forget taco Tuesdays.
George, you got to get out of here.
What's going on?
If I don't secure the bar,
I'm going to loose everything.
Come on George, George wake up.
Oh! I hear an angel, I must be in heaven.
George you better wake up or
I'm calling in your bar tab.
Oh, I'm up, I'm up.
Hey hey, you need to go home.
I'm not going anywhere.
This is not your problem.
No! It is my problem. Because if this bar
get blown over then I'm out of a job too.
Yeah, and I'm not gonna
have any place to drink.
Can't argue with that one.
For an environmentalist
you sure do hate sharks.
I've got fire power behind
the bar. Come

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.

Step 1. Do something that is considered wrong in all other cases.
Step 2. Use your otherwise illegal informaton to kill someone.
Step 3. Die, because someone else did the same.

Wonderful concept, beautiful execution.

Possibly the most entertaining multiplayer First-Person Shooter out there right now.

Focus is on couch mulitplayer over online, but this game offers both, and you can even play "couch and online" together. The developers are constantly tweaking and improving the game, and are very responsive to feedback. It's a little buggy on occasion, but that's part of its charm.

If you are looking for a FPS off the beaten path (and this one is faaar off the path), this game is it.

Do you remember when playing first-person shooters locally was your only option for multiplayer modes? Screencheat developer Samurai Punk does.Screencheat is a loving homage to those days, with one unique twist—looking at the screens of your opponents is essential to ensuring victory. Regardless of whether you’re playing Screencheat locally or online you can always see your opponents’ point-of-view, as the game brings back those split-screen windows that are slowly becoming a thing of the past. While playing a first-person shooter in split-screen is typically not ideal, in Screencheat it is absolutely necessary as each player in a match is invisible, thus forcing you to check their screen to discover their position on the map.While you’re not exactly armed to the teeth with weaponry, the game does feature a reasonably sizeable selection to choose from, with the majority of them being suitably off-the-wall. There are a few guns that are based in reality, such as the revolver and blunderbuss, though there are also the likes of the hobby horse, which gives you a boost of super speed and kills your enemies when you bump into them, the candelabra, which can be used to beat enemies over the head, and my personal favorite the bear bomb, a remotely detonated teddy bear that hops around the battlefield in a similar fashion to the explosive sheep featured in the Worms series.Screencheat’s unabashed love of the insanity of late-nineties/early-noughts shooters is thoroughly endearing, though its homage to the frenzied action of the likes of Goldeneye 007, TimeSplitters and Unreal Tournament is somewhat absent in its level design. Samurai Punk puts such a strong emphasis on symmetry that each map feels like it’s missing something.Thankfully Screencheat excels in its 5 game modes, which feature the likes of deathmatch and king of the hill, alongside a fun ‘One Shot’ game variant that only allows players to reload after each competitor has shot a round from their weapon, and the inventive ‘Murder Mystery’ mode which sees players being handed a selection of cards detailing the color of the room that the opponent they must kill is hiding in, alongside a picture of the weapon that they must kill them with.Screencheat’s unique concept is one that provides a nice dose of hilarity and harkens back to all those memories spent staying up late playing with friends.

It's alot of good fun, I use to screencheat alot at halo and this brings back the good ol'e days of splitscreen gaming.. I don't get the chance to play many splitscreen games anymore, my friends have got kids now and such.. But playing online it's still splitscreen so it still has that "local" splitscreen feel to it, probably even more so when you get mics on and get a few beers in with some online buddies :)

You can also incorperate local and online mp, so you could have you and your friend sitting next to you, while playing 4 player splitscreen with 2 more players over the internet!

It's a very interesting concept and the weapons have a nice feel to them like you would want in an FPS game, movement is fast paced, guns feel solid and engaging and generally it's just alot of fun and a very unique way of bringing back splitscreen gaming era

Bought this game from HumbleBundle.com when a four-pack was on sale for $10. I gave three copies to friends, and we started playing. As a long time accused screen cheater (though I maintain that I am not,) I found this game to be very enjoyable. It's a lot of stupid fun if you just want to play with a few close friends while on Skype or something, but I wouldn't recommend this to any hardcore CoD or CSGO try-hards that will end up throwing their PCs across the room because of a glitch that cause them to die; the game has glitches, most fun. Get it if you want a stupid, fun time with friends.
