To see Cuphead in action is to fall in love with it, but then you play it and find yourself swearing at the screen after dying for the hundredth time. A side-scrolling shooter that’s light on platforming but heavy on bosses, Cuphead is all about getting good.

Sure, it has an easy mode, but as you can’t really complete the game on it you might as well just persevere on normal. With lots of practice, and perhaps with a friend helping you, you’ll eventually conquer Cuphead. But don’t be surprised if one or two controllers get thrown at a wall in the process.
