About Cuphead

About this game

Cuphead is a run-and-gun action platforming game from Studio MDHR Entertainment Inc.

An Immersive Retro Experience

Cuphead is an acclaimed action game that pays homage to the classic cartoon animation styles of the 1930s. Utilising traditional hand-drawn cel animation, vibrant watercolour backgrounds and authentic jazz recordings, this game provides a truly unique retro experience. Players can choose between two characters — Cuphead or Mugman — and enjoy either single player or local cooperative game modes as they traverse through fantastical worlds and battle various formidable opponents.

Skillful Action Platforming 

Cuphead offers skill-based challenging gameplay with multiple levels of difficulty. Players can take advantage of an array of weapons, abilities, and super moves as they platform their way through levels while battling relentless foes. The goal for each player is to pay back a debt to the devil while discovering hidden secrets along their journey. 

Epic Boss Battles 

The highlight of Cuphead lies in its colossal boss battles where players face massive and multiform enemies. These epic encounters provide a thrilling challenge for both novice and experienced gamers alike who must hone their skills if they are to prevail against these formidable foes.

It's so good at catching your eye, lovingly crafted and incredibly detailed. I can't imagine the amount of time and effort that went into hand drawing every frame, its a joy to look at. Difficulty aside I would recommend that everyone give this game a try, its well worth it.

Challenging and Fun Game

The game looks amazing and is a lot of fun. The combat is really challenging (at least for me). But that makes it even more fun when you beat a boss or an old record. I highly recommend giving Cuphead a play.
