Also available in co-op play, it’s easy to get the game up and running on any platform and quickly play with a friend locally. The handy revival mechanic is useful and can be just the helping hand you need if you’re struggling with a section – a friend helping out means you can quickly revive each other a certain amount of times before it’s game over.
A variety of weapons can be found in Cuphead, all varying in both their effective range and the damage they do per shot. The ‘ultimate’ charge you obtain after some time of shooting can also change, giving you a burst of damage onto a boss or set of mobs.
