A tablet game for beginners and games enthusiasts alike, on Android and iOS.
Munich, March 10, 2015 – Hand on heart: are there any students who sail smoothly through their time at high school without ever once cheating? Cheats4Hire makes a principle out of playing it smart – without giving the player a bad conscience. The mix of subject-matter, scenery and genres in this tablet game for Android and iOS breathes fresh life into mobile gaming, as the player follows a group of cheaters and their mentor Joseph, the caretaker. Joseph is looking to get his own back to some extent on the head teacher, who expelled him from school back in the day. This improbable team has to cheat and trick their way through the school year, helping all the other pupils who have no chance of doing well by themselves – and without being caught by the teachers.
In addition to its cheeky theme, Cheats4Hire generates excitement through its unusual storyline and its elaborate, hand-drawn graphics. The graphics themselves were contributed exclusively by renowned comic artist and graphic designer Sean Galloway, famed for his work for many major US comic publishing houses. His creations give Cheats4Hire a wholly special, modern look that is unique in gaming.
The game, designed for beginners and gaming fans alike, gives players an entirely new perspective on school; because with Cheats4Hire no-one need succumb to exam panic, since tasks are overcome as a team – and using tricks such as crib sheets. The principle behind the game is quickly revealed to the gamer: the player uses multitasking to control three of the smart cheaters in real time, applying their individual skills and combining them, since it is only as a team that you only succeed in the puzzle-type missions. As the game progresses, the individual characters can acquire new skills. The fun builds again as players release special gadgets created with materials they’ve collected, or kit out their own club-room, the “Cheaters Club”, with items earned by doing well in mastering the challenges.
So that players at every level of experience can enjoy playing Cheats4Hire, they can accomplish the individual missions to varying standards depending on how ambitious they want to be. The higher the achievement, the better the grade. One thing’s for sure: school has rarely been such fun, and never has there been so much cheating, all in a good cause.
