Professional Review

Cuphead is an action game that evokes memories of the best old cartoons from Disney and Warner Bros. In Cuphead, a lot of familiar stories from childhood and references to cartoon characters. Magic happens at the moment when you realize that the cartoon comes to life in your hands, you are part of it, and you can control its heroes.

Graphics — 5/5

With the visual style of the American animation of the 1930s, Cuphead performs as a masterpiece among modern games.  Hand-drawn cartoons of the 1930s on bright watercolor backgrounds with deliberate film defects and soul-crackling jazz from the speakers dissolve in themselves instantly. The atmosphere, reminiscent of the early "Mickey Mouse" and the first season of "Tom and Jerry," literally comes to life in front of you. It's hard to believe that we are still participating in this show!

Gameplay — 5/5

Cuphead enchants not only by the beauty of its world but also its content. We have the most simple story in the well-thought-out fulfillment. The main character, a guy with a cup instead of a head, tries to cut down easy money in a casino, hits a huge sum and owes it to the Devil. Around this shirt-sleeve plot, the catchy cartoon universe builds. You will meet a lot of funny characters while playing. They visually perform like those of the old cartoons and add the charming absurdity to the plot.

Cuphead is the classic run 'n gun, adopting the covenants of game design of the eight-bit era. The game requires care, reaction and long learning locations, the location of enemies and patterns of behavior bosses - this will have to accept, it must be enjoyed.

Classic platform levels in Cuphead are not enough: basically, the whole game is a battle with bosses. These battles will take you to the brain: each boss has several incarnations, it is impossible to foresee what he will throw out this time. It is necessary to respond with lightning speed and adjust to new types of attacks - tactics change in an instant.

Controls — 4.5/5

The game mechanics in Cuphead is simple and elegant. There is shooting in two modes, jump, jerk, and squat. Reinforced shot requires cards. Still there is a super-attack, on which all the cards go at a time, but it is available only after mopping up the mausoleum and, by the way, there are several of them.

Replay Value — 5/5

Cuphead is a challenging multiplayer game that involves running and shooting. It is one of the most addictive games of run 'n gun genre. The difficulty increases from level to level which makes the game constantly exciting.


Cuphead is not a collection of quotes from other games. The game has its own face, and derivation is just an artistic method in this case. Cuphead is the work with its own ideology, aesthetics, and a complete picture of the gameplay.


Cuphead is a unique and fun game that offers more than just a run and shoot experience. Stunning graphics, sophisticated plot, thought-out gameplay make it a complete masterpiece.
