The following review written by one of the Software Informer contributors applies to version 5.5
Cheat Engine 5.5 is a superb software tool which will help gamers to get through difficult stages in a game. Cheat Engine (also commonly known as CE) is an open-source program. It allows gamers to cheat in games by means of a hex memory searcher and editor. The searcher and editor allows the user to change certain memory address and values, which directly influences the game.

The program has got various scan facilities which scans the complete data structure of the game and helps get the list of memory address which gets on smaller and smaller after each scan. This wonderful software tool has got a Client-Server version by means of which other users can connect to a server to have their games hacked in a common manner. User can prepare their own trainer like memory trainer which allows them to create their own cheats and assign hotkeys. Moreover, even if the design interface doesn’t seem good in the game, user can design their own. By making changes in the memory, user can get the advantage of infinite health, time and ammunition. Some Graphics tools are also available by which user can see through the walls and hidden spots in the game.


  • Cheat in computer games.
  • Hack PC.
  • Open source so free.
  • Permits to change interface of game.


  • Could be used for wrong doings by cracking into others PC.
  • Might leave some registry files after uninstalling.

    Protected games like Tanki Online, Zynga Games and other popular games have servers which save the current amount of credits a player has and display them on the screen, so in short servers create a backup file of the credits when the original file is deleted (by cheat engines) then the server automatically replaces the deleted slot with the backup file and makes another copy of it and so on. Thus, the cheat engine can only alter the amount of credits that is being displayed but not the original amount. It really becomes a pain in the neck if you use cheat engines for these games :/
