    why has nobody made a thread for this yet



    Steam Store Page: http://store.steampowered.com/app/268910/Cuphead/
    Website: http://studiomdhr.com/
    Twitter: https://twitter.com/studiomdhr


    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!
    I'm really loving this game right now, just about to beat it on expert mode. Also before someone asks, the devs have said that an online coop game will POSSIBLY be added later on, they just have to find out how feasible it is first. Fingers crossed.

    Also try and beat expert mode quick because the next patch will be nerfing the charge gun (best gun)



    HELPFUL TIPS:





    Postal, add a note about rebinding the controls to the op.
    You can't dodge, shoot, and jump at the same time if you don't.
    Rebind dodge to LT.

    I couldn't beat the red flying guy without it.

    This game's amazing. Sally Stageplay and her dumbass Final Fantasy third phase is probably my favorite fight although there isn't really a boss I didn't like.

    Also the MUSIC

    Fair warning for anyone else doing the S rank quest right now: Calla Maria is 100% RNG based lol. To get 3 parrys you need her to do the pufferfish attack, but because of the time limit not only could she potentially never even do it, but even if she does it might only give 2 pink pufferfish, and on TOP of that, she could do the 3 ghost attack while it's going on and then holy fuck get wrecked. I've S ranked everything except the two final bosses and can safely say this is the only cruel luck based shit I've noticed, so yea look forward to that shit.

    ALSO holy god I took forever getting the S rank on the junkyard guy. I've played soooo many hours of SHMUPS with a control stick that it's just forever ingrained in my head that a tiny push on the control stick = slow speed. that's not the case in this game as there's only one set speed, so I just could not stop taking damage during his final attack since I kept scooting around all over the place lmao. Had to switch to keyboard because oh god it made me want to DIE. I think that was the hardest boss I had to S rank amazingly.

    There's only one set speed for the player? That's pretty frustrating.

    Yep but the only time I noticed it was for the junkyard boss, as his very last phase is 100% bullet hell.

    Seriously if anyone else is used to pushing the control stick lightly to move slowly you should really just switch to keyboard for that boss and save yourself the endless suffering.

    I suggest you use Spread and the Super II [Invincibility] (if you beaten Baroness Von Bon Bon and Wally Warbles/Grim Matchstick to get the Super II) for that last phase. If you need to fill your Super, you can parry the Roller Coaster's nose.

    I've beat Bon Bon and Warbles, but not Matchstick yet! I went to bed last night before I could, but I'm probably gonna try to beat him before I go back to Beppie lol.

    Grim Matchstick is my favorite boss though I love that goofy dragon.

    You only need to beat one of them to access the Mausoleum for the Super II. If you're having trouble with Matchstick, I suggest you use Chaser and Roundabout weapons.

    I wonder if they will fix some of the color errors that Cuphead has like how when you go to the result screen after finishing a level he has yellow gloves.

    Also expect to be hearing a lot more about this game everywhere because holy god it's selling like CRAZY. To put it into perspective, remember Hollow Knight, that indie game from 8 months ago that blew up and had everyone talking about it?? On just steam ALONE cuphead has already surpassed it in sales in only a week and a half, having just sold it's 500,000th copy a few days ago lol. God knows how much its sold if you factor in console sales too but I wouldn't be surprised to hear about it selling it's millionth copy sometime soon.

    Likewise the album is also selling like crazy. It's been the top selling album on bandcamp ever since the game released, only falling to #2 today.

    basically the devs are being BURIED in money right now. I seriously hope they make a sequel to this, and hopefully use the money they've made to hire a massive team and get it made faster than the 7 years it took for this one to finally release lol.

    Edited:

    The UFO's arent TOO bad once you realize there's two different kinds and get used to it. I somehow beat that boss on normal without ever figuring that out lmao, but for the S rank I had to. But then it was the fuckin god damn stars that kept screwing me over jfc fuck that occasional super fast ones.

    I love the way this game references older video games even though it's styled after a time before video games were a thing. That magician dude in one of the run and guns is pretty much a Magikoopa.

    You should really try to find a way to get it from the official store if you want it that much because when it inevitably sells out those scalper fucks on ebay will put it up for 1000x the retail price.

    The HLM2 Vinyl by the same label was pressed 3 times and right now it looks like they're trying for $300

    I don't even have a record player my self. There is just something about vinyls I really like. Especially if its for something I really enjoy or has an amazing soundtrack.

    But since I am not a hardcore collector of vinyls that $100 asking price seems really steep.

    I'm glad Cuphead is doing good. A lot of love was put into this game it shows. Shame we'll probably never see a sequel due to how hard it was just to make one game.

    Knowing your passion project paying off and being critically beloved by a majority of people must feel great, and they fully deserve all the praise they're getting. It'd be cool if they did a shorter sort of expansion. Definitely will still take a whole lot of time I imagine, but hopefully much more manageable and feasible, even if it's just an extra level/boss or 2.

    Here's another tip: the tutorial sucks at teaching you parry.
    I came out of it thinking it was like guitar hero (parry when you're ON the thing) but it's actually parry BEFORE you touch the thing.

    I gave up on parry outside plane levels and made it to island 3 before I really learned the proper way from watching rogue justice play it.

    Extra tip: parry sugar and whetstone are for every single jump not just the first one. What they actually mean by first jump is "a jump that isn't you bouncing off something".

    Also whetstone lets you parry any enemy. You can jump and parry on the enemy even if it's not pink and it hurts them but not you.
