Two new games come out today on Microsoft’s Xbox One console, Alekhine’s Gun and Screencheat. Screencheat is a throwback to the split screen multiplayer games of yesteryear like Goldeneye while Alekhine’s Gun is a serious thriller set during the Cold War. Here are the official descriptions and download links.
Make Your Move! It is the height of the Cold War, a time of global uncertainty and civil unrest. You are Agent Alekhine, a highly skilled Russian assassin working alongside American CIA agents in a covert operation unsanctioned by the country you have served.
With the tension of a nuclear standoff growing with each passing minute, your mission is clear…though how you accomplish it is anything but.
Only one thing is certain: Time won’t stop, and it’s too late to go backward. As you unravel the conspiracy unfolding in front of your very eyes, the fate of America, and quite possibly the world, lies within your hands.
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.
