    Break your controller

    So hard and challenging, it is really fun. The easiest boss I faced other than the Root pack was The Devil. But the story was amazing, it looked beautiful and everything was amazing about this game, absoultelly flawess. ... Read Full Review

    An in-depth look at this beautiful but slightly flawed game

    As everyone in the gaming community has no doubt heard by now, Cuphead is a great game. The story of two ceramic brothers that have to make a deal with the devil to pay off their gambling debts has captured gamers around... Read Full Review

    A great call back to 2D side scrollers

    The first thing you notice about Cuphead is it's originality and charm. It's a beautifully animated game that looks like a 1930's cartoon (but in colour) and features a great, original soundtrack also similar to the ones... Read Full Review

    Great, wonderful game.

    I’m a casual gamer so it was a risky move to buy this game, but I caved in. After about 30 minutes in I loved it. It is very hard for me but when I win a fight I feel rewarded and it’s worth all the anger. The game isn’t... Read Full Review

    I'm seeing the platform genre regaining strength.

    Cuphead was undoubtedly one of the most anticipated platform games of this year, a game that would be like playing an animation from the 30's and would have a very high difficulty, and actually Cuphead is so far along wi... Read Full Review

    Different

    I been waiting for Cuphead to to come out since I saw it it at E3 2014. The game has lived up to the hype which is hard to do these days. The uniqueness of Cuphead and difficulty reminds me of some of the games I played... Read Full Review

    Hanna-Barbaric

    Cuphead, a side-scrolling shooter with a focus on challenging boss encounters, is a beautiful, hand-written love letter to old-timey cartoons. Inspired by the ragtime and jazz fever-dream of early 20th century animation,... Read Full Review

    Beautiful and exhilirating.

    Just draw dropping beautiful game. Imagining that each asset in this game was hand drawn on paper brings across how much the developers truly wanted to give that unique 1930's animation feel. And it shows. The bosses are... Read Full Review

    Brilliant platformer

    Its been a while since I played my last platformer, but this was like must try- and I wasn't dissapointed.This is run, shoot, die, repeat game. You try hundreds of times (of course it depends on your gaming skills) and g... Read Full Review
