Cheat Engine is an open-source tool whose sole purpose is to help you use tricks and cheats in your favorite video games, and therefore allows you to manipulate and change a wide variety of parameters in them.
In order to use the program correctly, you need to launch it before launching the video game and leave it running in the background. After Cheat Engine is running, you select the executable file of the game, which gives you the ability to subsequently edit some important variables such as the number of lives, or any other variable parameters.
Now, not only can you use cheats to get through the game faster, but you can also change some important parameters in order, for example, to reduce the lifespan of your hero if you feel that the game is too easy with the default life.
The program is not so easy to use, so when you start it for the first time, it gives you the opportunity to go through a complete tutorial that explains exactly what you need to do. However, on the official website of the program, you will find pre-configured cheats for over a hundred games.
Cheat Engine is a very interesting application for avid gamers who can now get the most out of their favorite video games, especially the more difficult ones.
