Cheat-O-Matic is a simple Windows program that lets you cheat in certain video games by changing values that are in your PC's memory. For example, if a game you're playing gives you a certain number of lives, powerups and points, you can increase their numbers by using Cheat-O-Matic and thus beat the game more easily. Simple cheat tools like this program are useful if you're playing a game that you normally enjoy, but just can't seem to be able to solve a puzzle or pass a level, no matter how hard you try.

Even though Cheat-O-Matic comes with a very simple barebones user interface and doesn't require any lengthy installation procedures, it's not a program for novices. In order to use it properly, you will need to have a good understanding of how video game store information related to variables in your PC's memory, so you can figure out which number it presents corresponds to the element you want to change in the game.

Cheat-O-Matic doesn't come with any documentation that shows you how to use it with specific games either, as there are tens of thousands of different games that it can work with. However, some third-party websites may have the information you're looking for if the game you're playing is relatively popular. Just like other cheat engines, Cheat-O-Matic only works with single player games, as multiplayer games handle in-game variable information in a more complex way that is a lot harder to manipulate.

Gamers who tested this software with many kinds of video games report that it works better with older games that are smaller and don't take up too much system resources. Even though Cheat-O-Matic can work with modern video games, it may have trouble handling games that store too much information in your PC's memory. Game-specific trainer programs will work better for you if you're playing one of the newer video games.
