In this cracked and crazy space, cartoon characters will love to hear you scream.

Tested on PC

We inform you that the Cuphead Quiz in The Delicious Last Course was conducted entirely on PC. We did not have access to the console versions at the time of testing.

MDHR puts the cover back on

A time made for gamers on Xbox and PC, Cuphead later made its way to the PlayStation and Switch worlds. No matter what kind, players from all over the world have been able to enjoy the unfortunate adventures of these two brothers who are forced to serve Satan.. Featuring sinister boss battles, amazingly challenging run and guns, propeller-slashing plane shooting sequences, and epic brilliance in an original graphic style inspired by Disney, Warner, or even Fleischer from the 1930s. Today, MDHR Teams is finally delivering the extra content that fans of the franchise have been eagerly awaiting. So, is it an animation?

The Delicious Last Course takes the form of an add-on that sells for €7.99, the content of which can be accessed on the world map by going to the shrine. If you have never played Cuphead in your life, you will have to pass the first level of the base game to get to the character of Mrs. Challis. A small boat ride is enough to reach the new island and thus take on some new twisted challenges, to complete easily, normal or expert (once the story mode is complete). Like the base game, Easy Mode silences certain attack patterns and prevents boss transformations. Also, the developers came up with the idea not to give the ingredients that heroes are looking for when a boss is annihilated other than the usual. This is enough to motivate the least adventurous to surpass themselves!

Cuphead in The Delicious Last Course: DLC Makes You Want Mickey Again?

Although DLC levels can be completed using Cuphead or Mugman, they are above all designed to match the skills of Mrs. Chalice, the new heroine of the title. In fact, With her double-jumping, her rolling makes her invulnerable and her dash able to fend off pinkish projectiles, the hero has more than one trick up her sleeve. To facilitate the application of any person of their choice. However, there is absolutely nothing free in the work of a MDHR studio: a skilled Mrs. Challis can only be personified by equipping magic”stellar cookieThis means that it is impossible to provide additional help (such as a double heart that adds life points) if one decides to take advantage of the adventurer’s talents, since biscuits occupy the only place of magic.

for the rest, The last delicious course is pure Cuphead With shots going in 8 directions, bend, dash, and what improves his character thanks to items sold by the local shop (weapons to change on the fly with LB, magic, etc.). The main difference comes mainly from the lack of run and gun levels during the main adventure included in the extension, which may disappoint some fans. In the small welcome updates section, It is finally possible to change equipment between two attempts. Online collaboration mode is still absent from subscribers. Shame.

For its content, the Cuphead DLC features a new playable character (Mrs. Challis), six new boss bosses (including a higher plane shooting level) and five events in which weapons are removed. And where the only way out is to dodge the pink items placed on the enemies. These challenges are very important because they have a good idea to play on several mechanisms: sometimes you have to blow out all the candles in a room to make the boss attackable, sometimes you have to use cannons to hurt the boss in the background. New weapons and magic are also included. As usual, in order to emerge victorious from the clashes, all you have to do is remember the modes that differ according to the stage of the fight but also according to the difficulty chosen. Your skill and ability to keep calm are clearly your best weapons.. The last boss is revealed once the five bosses are beaten on the normal difficulty level. Not counting the accuracy of the secondary mission (which offers a hidden boss), the main adventure in Delicious Last Course ends between two and three hours, and it’s game over. You will understand that despite many years of development, This extension aims for quality, not quantity.

Once again, MDHR provided professional technical guidance work for its establishment. The animations of the bosses, opponents, and main characters are numerous as well as being very detailed. There is always something funny going on on the screen, so you have to force yourself not to be distracted by these visual fireworks. It’s good to see that the studio artists have ramped up the techniques by putting a bit of movement into some of the groups. During clashes, it is not only the bosses that transform, but the stages as a whole. The new musical themes are excellent and more diverse in their genres than before. Whether for eyes or ears, the Cuphead at The Delicious Last Course is a treat. The action seemed to us more readable than in the base game, thanks to the easily recognizable patterns of new bosses, fewer on-screen projectiles, and better controllable schedules.

conclusion

strength point

  • It is my pleasure to lead Mrs. Challis
  • Levels that remove weapons and force you to dodge, very nice
  • More successful art direction, even crazier bosses
  • Sold for less than 8 euros

Weak points

  • It’s short! Too few new levels/bosses
  • No online collaboration yet

The Holy Grail that studio MDHR sells for a simple gold-plated mug would have passed if the finishes hadn’t reached the legendary level we expected. Thanks to the sophisticated Mrs. Challis and a new gang of confused bosses, Cuphead and Mugman have very good arguments to plunge us back into their moving fate. While its low price mitigates any grievances, we would have liked a more content-rich experience, especially after so many years of waiting. If it doesn’t turn water into wine, The Delicious Last Course is a strong-tasting drink that can be enjoyed with every sip.
