Screencheat for Mac is a chaotic split-screen multiplayer shooter that forces players to rethink the way they approach conventional multiplayer games. In the Screencheat arena, fast reaction times aren’t enough to keep you alive. When everyone is invisible, players will have to master the art of taking a not-so sneaky look at their opponent’s screens and working out where they are based on uniquely coloured areas of the map and distinctive landmarks. Check out the trailer below for some game-play.
Screencheat pays homage to iconic competitive first-person shooters such as Goldeneye, Perfect Dark and Halo, by blending the elements everyone loves about those games and shaking it up with its own unique take on the genre. When everyone’s used to playing by the rules, can you adapt to unconventional gaming quick enough to get the upper hand?

Paranautical Activity has been released for Mac! Paranautical Activity combines the classic FPS action of games like Doom and Quake, with the randomness and difficulty of modern roguelikes like Binding of Isaac and Spelunky. The game is available on Gamersgate and only $9,99. Check out the trailer below for some game-play. Have fun!
Reviews say that everything about this game is fantastic. It might be a bit short on content in terms of enemies, weapons, traps and items; but that doesn’t stop it from still being loads of fun and having amazing replayability.It’s a hybrid of Binding of Isaac and Doom, with the floor generation and item collecting of Isaac and fast-paced shooting of Doom, and it does it well enough that it’s its own game and doesn’t feel like it’s trying to replace either of those two.
