Nowadays it’s not easy to be original when it comes to video games, with games borrowing mechanics from each other and  sequel after sequel. StudioMDHR Entertainment Inc. wants to be original to give us something new but feels like the old games

“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!” –  StudioMDHR Entertainment Inc

Cuphead controls like a dream it maybe looks like a old game, but feels like a new one. It’s tight and precise. And is easy to learn. One button to jump, one to shot and one to dash. Bosses feels like the one we are used to from the 80’s and 90’s. There is a pattern and you have to find it out, to know when to attack.
