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.

Silly weapons and invisible opponents put a fresh twist on Screencheat's old-school approach to multiplayer shooting.

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.

The execution isn't quite as good as the central concept, but this is still a fun celebration of everything that's great about split-screen gaming.

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 GoldenEye with friends. While it's still missing a few sparks of genius that made those old classics so endlessly replayable, it's certainly fun while it lasts.
