Cuphead boss footage features pitched allotment battle

Allotments are evil, a fact confirmed by Cuphead's latest blast of footage (via IGN), which features a boss fight against a nasty carrot and a jerk potato. It also shows off a bit of that newly revealed platforming—and thank heavens that's in there, as a simple boss rush doesn't interest me at all.

The Microsoft-backed 1930s-cartoon-inspired platformer is due later this year sometime, and that vague non-date clearly isn't soon enough.

Tom loves exploring in games, whether it’s going the wrong way in a platformer or burgling an apartment in Deus Ex. His favourite game worlds—Stalker, Dark Souls, Thief—have an atmosphere you could wallop with a blackjack. He enjoys horror, adventure, puzzle games and RPGs, and played the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VIII with a translated script he printed off from the internet. Tom has been writing about free games for PC Gamer since 2012. If he were packing for a desert island, he’d take his giant Columbo boxset and a laptop stuffed with PuzzleScript games.
