“Cuphead”: A great game leads to a great show


Ava Gjertsen, Editor

The video game “Cuphead” was released on September 29th, 2017. Its a run and gun shooter-type game that focuses mainly on boss battles. With complex and humorous characters and immersive game play, “Cuphead “is super entertaining.

The art and characters were based off of 1930’s cartoons, using paint and vintage sounding music. The entire game gives very “old-timey” vibes overall, given that’s what its inspired by. In fact, there was a actually a show released after the game on February 18, 2022.

“The Cuphead Show” kept all the iconic characters and gave them more personality as well. The show is extremely funny and captures the viewer’s attention. It doesn’t follow the plot of the game but still remains amazing. Overall, both the show and game have proved to be worth trying out, and I highly recommend them both.
