Split-Screen FPS Games

A 1-4 player split-screen multiplayer games.

Gameplay video:

This codebase contains various game modes that all use the same framework, and I work on whichever one interests me at any moment in time (or sometimes start work on a new one). When the game starts, you will begin in the "overworld". To start a particular game mode, walk into the area that denotes that mode.

Currently, the following games are at various stages of progress:

  • 3D Monster maze: escape from the maze. Status Complete
  • Alien Tag: Don't be the player who's been tagged the longest. Status: Complete
  • Tower Defence: Build turrets to shoot the aliens. Status: Can walk around and place turrets.
  • Funny Farm: Grow and harvest crops. Status: You can walk around an empty field
  • FTL: An FTL-inspsired 3D game. Status: You can walk around a spaceship
  • Deathchase: Crash into other players. Status: You can drive
  • Bladerunner: Identify and kill the replicant. Status: Barely started
  • Stock car: Race around a track. Status: You can drive
  • Dungeon: A 3D Roguelike. Status: You can walk around a basic procedurally-generated dungeon.


  • Press Space at the start to use keyboard/mouse, or press X on your controller to use that.
  • Esc to exit back to the overworld, or to quit out.

It depends on the specific game selected, but controls are typically:-

  • W, A S, D, Space and Enter for keyboard & mouse player. H for Help (where implemented).
  • Tested with PS4 controllers.
  • F1 - Toggle full Screen
  • F2 - Toggle full screen but still windowed (required if you want to record the screen using Windows)

Notes for other Developers

  • Development branch is the cutting edge but possibly broken branch. Master is the most stable but out of date.
  • Gradle is a real pain to work with. However, if you have trouble loading this project, I used Gradle v4.10.3.
  • The file contains various settings that determine what game mode the game starts in.
