Cuphead Free PC! Because you have a little cup with a devil with the devil and then lost, we had to die, die and die again just to pay your debt. We were wrong in you. You, with your pretty graphics in the style of the old Disney and Fleischer cartoons of the 1930s; with your funny animations, charming characters, you’re anything but a relaxing and nostalgic afternoon watching TV with Mickey Mouse, Popeye the Sailor and Co.
Behind your fancy shell hides a kernel that is so hard that we almost broke it. For you, literally, we went down to hell – and had a pagan passport. Thanks to Cuphead Our main task is simple: as in Super Mario World or other 2D Marios, we have to maneuver our little hero (and his mate Mugman, when we play in the coop) on a top world map to lead a boss after each other with shoot’em up, projectors or platform mechanisms. Meanwhile, the short-circuit and gun levels in the style of Super Probotector: Alien Rebels aka Contra 3: The Alien Wars, the action on which we have to run and shoot from (usually) from left to right.
If we win a boss fight or close a Run & Gun pass, we release paths on the map that take us to new levels. Once we’ve done it all, the doors of a second and third world will open before the grand finale.Achieving this goal is anything but easy. The ruthless facts on the table: We can usually only insert three strokes before starting the level before. But we have an infinite number of lives and unlimited ammo, a stronger special attack, and a powerful Super Art attack, which we can only execute with a fully filled EX bar.
But now, for the first time at Cuphead: With regard to art design, this is the first thing that immediately catches the eye and certainly the most important part of this game. The artwork and the animations that accompany it in the cartoon style of the 30’s are all spectacular. That they are authentic? Yes, in my mind at least. This certainly reminds a lot of the Steamboat-Willie phase of the drawing and Cuphead attracts the feeling perfectly. There are many hints, which I honestly can not classify so much, because my knowledge of the first Disneys.
Avery and other artists are somewhat limited, but even if I see some, there will be more than enough for the Connoisseur, The good thing is also that the style does not allow too much nail to a range and experiment with many variations. It is almost always a success and you can expect a unique trip. Above all, I had no problem enjoying the complete and partial anarchistic illusion of a good unlinked character. The lack of modern animation is often enough: the will to do everything, to do it and forget a second later than you did. If Popeye’s girlfriend, who is a zeppelin in a shoot-em-up-level at a sudden trot for a while and then never turned into a furious bull, that’s how it is. Cuphead is full at each of its many stages.
The story is quickly explained: Cuphead, the protagonist of the game, has lost his soul in the casino to the devil. To get these back, he has to defeat various villains. In addition, the title hero in classic 2D view jumps and shoots through various levels with varied and tricky final bosses. Collected coins can also unlock other abilities. Cuphead get download can also be played in pairs – but only in front of the same console. This unlocks the second character Mughead, which, not least by the ability to revive the partner, the gameplay extremely simplified. The hopping and shooting passages are broken by flight levels, which follow the same principle – just flying instead of jumping.
Even as a pair Cuphead challenges the players a lot. So almost every boss fight has to be started several times, just to see through the attack patterns of the opponents and deal with them. This requires not only concentration and skilled hand-eye coordination, but also a high degree of frustration tolerance. Because the levels are also for Genreveteran_innen bockschwer. Younger and inexperienced players will definitely feel overwhelmed and frustrated by this. Add to that the retro style, which definitely has its charm, but partly goes into the grotesque. Although the game is never explicitly scary, the unfamiliar graphic style can possibly scare younger players. There is also no German translation, so Cuphead must be played in English. However, the basic gameplay is very easy to learn, which at least here no large English language skills are required.
Even our very first boss fight against the Root Pack, a murderous trio of a potato, an onion and a carrot, turns out to be so tricky that we are almost done after three planless and unsuccessful rounds, the Controller in the Corner to fire. However, once we are torn to the brim, we start again and instead of shooting wildly, we begin to memorize the movement and attack patterns of our vegetable (Studio MDHR) opponents until we finally get to grips with the different phases to tackle the fight.
Our plan: In phase one, just jump over the dirt balls that the potato spits at us and shoot them at the same time; in phase two in the left corner of the screen because we are best protected from the tears of howling onions. And in the final stages of the fight, stay in better motion to dodge the psychic and flying carrot missiles of the three-eyed carrot colossus and work its lifebelt piecemeal in passing. So far the theory. However, after our aha experience we still need some attempts to successfully put our tactics into action games. Especially in the last phase of the fight, each evasion jump requires precision and each shot the right timing, which is basically easy to do thanks to the excellent control. We, on the other hand, fail because we either react too slowly, jumble motions in the heat of the battle, do not anticipate the enemy’s memorized attacks, or are simply unfocused. We also find here: Cuphead is bumpy, but still fair. We must not make mistakes.
After many other overcome bosses, the first in comparison comes before us like a pinch. Already in the last stage of the first world, the level of difficulty increases so much that we no longer need seven but maybe 27 attempts to kill a final boss. We can not deny that some bouts or run – & – gun levels frustrated us, that we were about to give up. But ultimately that’s only up to us. Pause, breathe, keep going. All you need is a high level of perseverance and the will to learn, which will ultimately reward you with an incredibly euphoric and satisfying feeling. Although there are neither very explicit playing scenes nor other inappropriate content for children and adolescents, Cuphead targets players over 12 years of age. This is due to the extremely high level of difficulty, which can frustrate and overwhelm especially the younger. The graphic style has its charm, but also seems so grotesque in part that very young players could possibly be scared. Genreveteranen from 12 years on the other hand are happy about the detail-loving and beautiful to be regarded challenge around the title hero Cuphead.
