It’s probably one of the most anticipated Indie games of all time – but now Cuphead is here!
First announced back in what seems like Victorian times, Cuphead has finally arrived on Xbox One, and all for the rather strange price of £16.74.
Inspired by those first ever Disney animated cartoons of the 1930s – which were fascinating to watch, while being quite scary – Cuphead promises to be a hard as nails shooter, that will have you crying and screaming into the night.
There is no doubt that it looks absolutely amazing and seems so well crafted in the looks department that your eyes will melt along with your reaction times. Using a style of animation that has never been seen before in games, Cuphead could prove to be one of the most original Xbox exclusives ever to grace this console.
The lure of local co-op is a big draw for the game as well, with the possibility of playing with your buddy to help you tackle these big boss battles. Cuphead promises to be as tricky as hell, but looks to be excellently designed and should be hugely rewarding for all gamers who are up for the challenge.
One thing is for granted though; you’re never going to look at an old cartoon in the same way again.
Get over to the Xbox Games Store now!
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!
