About the game
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!
- Cuphead designers used traditional hand drawn cel animation and watercolor backgrounds coupled with a hot jazz soundtrack to bring players an original gaming experience.
- Featuring skill-based, challenging gameplay with multiple difficulties. Mix and match weapons, abilities and super moves!
- Traverse through wondrous action-platforming levels to gather gold while battling relentless foes.
