What is Cuphead


Cuphead is a classic run-and-gun action game with a heavy emphasis on boss fights. Beat the boss by controlling Cuphead on an aircraft!

Cuphead was inspired by the rubber hose animation technique used in cartoons. Cuphead has one or two players controlling the eponymous protagonist and his brother Mugman as they fight through a series of stages culminating in boss encounters to settle the devil's debt.

The game's graphic aesthetic, playability, soundtrack, and challenges were all appreciated.
