Cuphead for Android: the arcade is already ported to mobile

The game stands out for having simple but fun mechanics. Is a shoot’em’up, a 2D side scroll. That means that you will move in a 2D scenario from left to right and you will have to shoot the enemies you encounter. Its 1930s-inspired graphics and adequate difficulty to be challenging but not particularly frustrating have made this game a hit.

Cuphead for Android. How to install it

Originally released for PC and Xbox One in 2017, in April this year it came out for Nintendo Switch, and now we can play it on Android. It is important to note that it is not an official version. It is a port created by the users of XDA Developers, one of the largest Android forums in the world, where they have made available the Cuphead APK. We download it, install it and that’s it, the game already works. Yes, without further complications. But it is important to inform that we can only find the game in English. We remind you that in order to download the APK you will have to activate the permission of Install unknown apps in your browser. Once this is done you can do it.

performance

Let’s talk about performance. We have tested it on a OnePlus 5, which we remember has a Snapdragon 835 and, in this case, 6GB of RAM. The performance has been excellent. All filters and effects are deactivated, but activating them has continued to behave very well. Even so without effects and filters, which add a more vintage effect, the game looks phenomenal, so if you have a somewhat more modest mobile, you will not have many problems either.

Of course, it should be noted that does not leave us many options to leave the graphics to our liking. It is true that it is not a display of graphic power, so it will not allow us to modify the typical graphic options that we can find on a PC, such as setting the graphics to low, medium or high. The only options we find are the contrast of the screen, the grainy effect to give that look from the 30s (which is possibly one of the most resource consuming things), the particles and small animations in the background. If you have a modest mobile, leave everything in OFF, but many mobiles will have no problem for it.

Controls

The controls are very well done. As expected it is played with the mobile horizontally, on the left side of the screen we will find the direction arrows, which will serve both to move and to crouch or direct the view when we shoot. To jump, shoot or other controls that we will need to complete the levels we will have the controls on the right side. Nothing new that hasn’t been seen before, but effective.

At first it can be somewhat complicated if you are used to playing with a controller these types of games, which mix fighting against enemies and platforms, so we recommend that you do the tutorial, it will not take you five minutes and you will begin to understand how both the game and the controls work.

While you are on the map or other places other than the levels, we will have the Y, X, B, A buttons in the Xbox position order (Y on top, X on the left, B on the right and A down).
