Cuphead is a classic run and gun action game heavily focused on boss battles. Inspired by cartoons of the 1930s, the visuals and audio are painstakingly created with the same techniques of the era, i.e. traditional hand drawn cel animation, watercolor backgrounds, and original jazz recordings.

Play as Cuphead or Mugman (in single player or local co-op) as you traverse strange worlds, acquire new weapons, learn powerful super moves, and discover hidden secrets while you try to pay your debt back to the devil!

It looks fantastic! The focus on boss rush mode and the rumored high difficulty isn’t my thing anymore. I’ll add it to my wishlist and play it in 2019.


I will be so bad at it because I’ll just be gaping at the visuals the entire time.


Humongous tip: Remap the controls before you play. The default controls are, in a word, bad. Jump, shoot, secondary fire, and dash are all assigned to face buttons. I spent most of the time with the tip of my thumb holding down fire while the joint crunches jump.



I’ve been watching some gameplay videos and it does indeed look fantastic. I wonder if it will ever come on other systems in the future.


Also over 1 million PC’s have been destroyed due to rage with this game.


These guys deserve it, let’s hope they don’t need to be financially ruined the next time…
