EGX 2015: Cuphead impressions

What a fantastic title Cuphead is going to be. The stylish 1930s animation inspired platformer is hard as nails, but it’s cutesy animation and humor is irresistible. It’s Itchy and Scratchy meets the original Popeye cartoons. Funny and very heart warming, but don’t let this trick you or take away your attention, because the action will swiftly kick you hard should you not give the game the respect it deserves.


Cuphead has a super smooth frame rate allowing the gorgeous visuals and subtle 30s animation filter to wrap the whole experience in something I wanted to pick up and hug – it’s going to be a huge hit in 2016 and I will be shocked if it doesn’t feature highly on people’s GOTY lists.
