Multiplayer games - common screen PS Vita

In shared-screen, players don't connect to a network - local or online - because the game takes place on a single console or computer. Two or more players play at the same time, but the screen isn't split - all of the characters (or vehicles, or whatever) controlled by the players are visible in the game window. This form of multiplayer is most common in brawlers, platformers (such as the LEGO series), sports simulators, and isometric co-op action games.
