[Switch] Screencheat: Unplugged - $2.59 US (~$3.92 AUD) (US account required) - eStore Nintendo


This is a great price for an entertaining couch co-op game.
I think you need to change to the US region to buy it.

From the website:

Screencheat is the multiplayer split-screen shooter where everyone is invisible, so you have to "screencheat"! Local multiplayer madness for up to 4 players!

"Screencheat is the award-winning, split-screen shooter where everyone is invisible so you have to “screencheat” (verb: to look at your opponent’s screens), enhanced exclusively for Nintendo Switch™! Inspired by the great split-screen shooters of yesteryear, Screencheat: Unplugged is a fresh take on the classic couch multiplayer you know and love!

Master a wide variety of weapons and engage in fast and frantic combat with up to four players locally or with bots, then challenge yourself in the tricky time trials mode. With colourful maps, unique modes and a huge number of customisation options including wacky mutators, Screencheat: Unplugged 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 mechanics, encouraging wildly different play styles.


Gather your friends and play together using single or dual Joy-Con™ controllers or the Pro Controller! Screencheat features a host of intuitive control schemes no matter what you’re playing with. Choose a control scheme, then customise it to suit your play style.


From traditional favourites such as Deathmatch, Capture the Fun where players compete to hold a pinata for the longest, to the completely unique Murder Mystery that challenges you to find and frag your specific target with a specific weapon.


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 that allow you to quickly locate other players without being able to actually see them.


We've got heaps of customisation options so you can play the game however you want! Choose which weapons are allowed, adjust player attributes, victory conditions, penalties and more. To really mix it up stack on some Mutators such as hyper mode, low gravity, flappy jump or the iconic Australian Edition. "

    That's a hella good price, if I didn't own it on Xbox, I'd aaaaaaalmost be inclined to bother with making a US account. Almost.


    Can you pay using Aussie PayPal or credit card? Or have to buy the US Nintendo credit ?

    Quick thoughts on this -

    • Has basic control scheme, which is good. Gyro with a single Joy Con is weird, but manageable. Gamecube controls have weird buttons, where B and Z are used to jump and shoot respectively. Most control schemes are customisable.
    • The colours help immensely (and looks snazzy too!), however some vertical-based maps are harder to grasp. If you're introducing the game to others, I suggest playing on the easy-to-grasp Gardens map, which is the first unlockable one.
    • Speaking of which, everything is locked from the get go. Each match nets you experience points, used to level up and unlock rewards. They're not a grind-fest, but it's a bit of a bummer.
    • Movement is quick, felt a bit like Quake. Loved it!
    • Menus and customisation is fiddly. Setting up each profile takes up the whole screen, where each player must take turns customising.
    • The "player killed enemy"-type of messages are randomly replaced with pop culture references instead, such as "Barry unfriended Reginald". Livens the match up in ways I didn't expect.
    • It's made in Melbourne!

    It's 100% worth the money, had lots of fun.


    I tried changing to US region but it wont let me pay still, tried via paypal and credit card. Any one who's able to buy? Workaround perhaps? Cheers
