"A great FPS that forces you to ScreenCheat and that only increases the fun on the game, but don't screencheat to much because everyone else see you too."

Screencheat Update 2.1 - Training Time

Hi all,

We've been hard at work fixing up a few bugs in the last update and finishing up something that didn't quite make the last patch; Training Mode!

Training Mode is a new way to play Screencheat offline by yourself. It features a basic and advanced time trial across all 10 maps, in addition to an Infinite mode for you to hone your Screencheating skills. Each of the timed modes features Bronze, Silver and Gold times for you to beat. Get two bronze medals on each map to unlock the next map.

Bug Fixes
  • Fixed an issue where players would get stuck "Waiting for Players 2/3" or similar at the start of a round.
  • Fixed a related issue where the lobby count would be incorrect in the lobby browser
  • Fixed players seeing "Joining next round" for more than one round
  • Game timers (duration, oneshot) synchronise correctly for spectators/players joining mid game
  • Assorted small fixes

Much Love,
Samurai Punk

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 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 ranging from traditional guns like the blunderbuss or grenade launcher through to unique options such as a hobby horse, a modified car engine that shoots bouncing plasma balls and a teddy bear loaded with explosives.


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.


In the spirit of the best arena shooters you’ll spend time traversing 10 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.

Below you'll find a written and video impression on the game.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSQX2BxuNGk

Remember back in the day, when people played multiplayer FPS on the same screen locally and on split screen? Remember how there's always that one person who's looking at your screen to find where you are? Well Screencheat is made for that one person! Except this time around, the game promotes each player to screen cheat and every one is on equal grounds!

The gimmick behind Screencheat is that every player is invisible with only each other's screen as indicators to where s/he might be. As a player, you must manage your own screen so you know where you're going and shooting, while paying attention to every one elses, so you know where to aim. It's a very simple idea that's executed very well.

Graphically the game isn't much to look at. It's more functional than it is pretty. Luckily for most, this is not the type of game that people will care too much about the aesthetics, rather the mechanics. As mentioned above, mechanically this game pulls off it's goal with success. It is a pretty basic FPS when you strip away the multiscreen / invisible player gimmick, but in a game like this, simplicity is probably for the best.

The game is very fun, especially if you have a soft spot for old time local play FPS feel, even if it does support online as well as local. It's nothing too special to look at, but it is something special to play with friends!

Pros:
- Frantic micro-management of multiple screens
- Very interesting concept
- Easy to understand and jump into

Cons:
- Aesthetics are some what weak
- Might be too mechanically simple for some

I was playing with my friends. I almost won every game. Then it was 3 v 1, they was making teamwork together. I was still winning. 40 games later, i won 36 times, 3 v 1. And now they doesn't wanna play with me. 10/10, would laugh like a maniac when killing your friends and listen rage through the skype.
