Review Approach:

This game Is something unique, something that feels like, It's never been done before. (Also I payed the price of like, $20)
Cuphead Is a Run N' Gun game, like Contra, but more cartoony, and really hard, like Contra.
Long story short, In Cuphead, Cuphead And Mugman loved to gamble. One day, they lost In a bet for their souls to the Devil. Cuphead And Mugman made the Devil change his mind, but the Devil made Cuphead and Mugman to collect souls for him, and he wouldn't take their souls. The story itself Is pretty dark, for an Everyone 10+ game.

The game itself Is a very, very hard game. But the controls are really even, and comfortable for a 2D PC game. You shoot with X, jump with Z, and C, your finger, or gun, (finger gun) will hold still, and you can move your gun using the arrow keys while holding X.

Did I mention how hard this damn game Is?!?! Man! It's 2017's Contra! (Or I'm just bad at video games on PC. :unsure:)

Also the first level IS a Run N' Gun level, and If you played Contra with a keyboard, you probably would feel comfy with this setup, but me, no way.

Otherwise, this Is a really well thought out game. Very unique.

Here Is the trailer for this game:
What I Liked . . . A very unique game. Classic, and looney. Comfortable Controls. What I Didn't Like . . . Very, very hard. Sometimes, REALLY LAGGY.
