Cuphead Gets the Retro Treatment Running on a Black and White CRT TV

Cuphead, CRT TV, Retro

Absolutely timeless.

Cuphead has picked up a lot of attention since it released on the PC and Xbox One last week. Aside from being a pretty challenging game, it also has that classic cartoon vibe in its unique art style. That said, Cuphead goes even more retro when YouTuber Lazy Game Reviews decided to play it on a black and white CRT TV.

While the game is trying to mimic animation from the 1930s, there’s still something surreal seeing it run on an old colorless TV. You really get this feeling of watching a classic cartoon instead of a typical gameplay video. In reality, Lazy Game Reviews is actually playing the PC version through an HDMI to RF conversion.

Cuphead is a run and gun action game that places heavy emphasis on boss battles. You literally play as a cup head and go through several bosses to clear your debt with the devil. For more details about it, you can check out our review of the game.
