Cuphead is only for both the PC and X-Box One, I believe. The Cuphead on the left in the intro screen looks like he has Mickey Mouse’s body. The game has a 1930s, whimsical, cartoonish, delirium, with period music. The wait screens have a gritty, film reel look with a static sound. The map screens remind me of Commander Keen maps. I saw a video where Cuphead is on the map screen and meets another cup named Chip. There’s a pig with an eye patch who looks like a deranged Porky Pig. The game reminds me of the 1930s without alcohol prohibition, the dust bowl, or the economic depression! The fonts remind me of the old cartoons of Memorable Mickey, Delightful Donald, and Feelin’ Goofy VHS tapes. The game's cartoon violence also reminds me of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and Itchy and Scratchy. Itchy and Scratchy are the cat and mouse cartoon that Krusty The Clown promotes and Bart Simpson watches. The mouse would do a patently absurd murder like pulling the cat's internal organs out through his mouth or something. The black and white mode reminds me that part of the Wizard of Oz is black and white. In this game everybody apparently has Tourette Syndrome? Or maybe they are on Moonshine or absinthe? The Pacifist turtle must be highly evolved from The Galapagos Islands or Chernobyl or he wouldn't be talking. Cuphead reminds me of Chip and Mrs. Potts from the 1992 movie of Beauty and The Beast.

The cartoonish gameplay reminds me of Miss South Carolina. Watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yB8kgdvbVNg and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WALIARHHLII .

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xVeJzkdvS0c&t=2m54s (The boy standing on the ball reminds me of one of Bowser’s sons in Super Mario Bros 3 standing on the ball)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xVeJzkdvS0c&t=5m36s (The man on the right reminds me of Bluto. I think that Bluto was the man that argued with Mickey Mouse or Goofy.)

I just noticed about 4 days ago that Cuphead is going to be available for Nintendo Switch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLKsUbnxKws . I was at a Gamestop store on Saturday where I overheard some people talking. One of the girls there said that she likes playing Cuphead and that she can’t get passed the first level. The reviews seem to be that the game is funny, but it’s difficult to get used to.

The feedback I've heard on this one is overwhelmingly positive to me - Great gameplay but high difficulty level. I'm good with that if the "memorization of moves" approach isn't taken too far. Smile
