Five Other Games You Should Try If You Enjoyed Cuphead

Your cup shall runneth over.

Cuphead Psycarrot

Cuphead is one of the most unique games we’ve seen in years. It’s also one of the hardest. Even for veteran run-and-gun fans, it’s a rather grueling experience that pretty much punishes the player at every turn. Fans of Mega Man, Metal Slug, and Contra found it a pleasure to see the legendary NES-style difficulty feature in a game that garnered so much mainstream attention. But after beating it, many of these same fans felt a need for more of that iconic difficulty. Rather than returning to the old classics for your fix, I suggest taking a gander at Steam’s underbelly for some tough indie run-and-gun games that deserve just a wee bit more attention. Presented here is a list of five in particular that you should check out.
