A personal favourite, Cuphead is an incredibly challenging, frustrating and rewarding experience, packaged in a wonderfully stylized hand-drawn 1930s cartoon world.

It¨s a 2D side-scrolling shooter that has you fighting your way through a gorgeous array of weird and wacky bosses that look as though they have been ripped straight out of Disney¨s Steamboat Willie show.

Take on the challenge solo or partner up with a friend online to collect power ups, slay your enemies, and confront the Devil himself.
