Cuphead was first released in 2017 for Windows, and today it’s available on Nintendo Switch and Xbox One. The whole design and animations of the game are inspired by old cartoons dating back to the 1930s. The game can be played by one or two players where they take control of Cuphead and Mugman.
The two are brothers who on a mission to repay the debt that they owe to the devil. The game has impressive visuals that immerse you in the whole world. Even though this is an indie game, it’s really challenging and punishing.
This is an action run & gun game with a lot of bosses. Apart from fighting bosses constantly and going through levels, this game also has RPG elements. Your character has an infinite number of lives, and when you die, you keep all the items.
While going through levels, the player collects coins to buy special abilities and weapons. Each time you finish a level, you will get ranked based on your performance. Some of the factors that determine your rank include parried attacks, damage taken, and time required to beat the boss.
Each level has a boss, and all of them have different mechanics. A lot of players look to perfect their performance by going through levels multiple times. At the same time, this allows them to farm more coins they can use for buying equipment.
