Controls are tight as can be. My daughter played it for the first time on Sunday and was on the second third of it within an hour. You want right analog shooting (cool for flying stages, I guess) but with all of the dashing and jumping, I don't see how it would work.

Just buy the spread "gun" or the seeker and enjoy.

What does that have to do with a terrible control scheme?

The controls are fine and if you don't like it you can customize it.



Controls are great. And I'm playing it with a PS2 controller.

I mean, one thing is that people disagree but the amount of shit OP got for sharing this opinion.

So many attacks from people saying that just because you dislike this game's controls you must suck at games. Grow up people.

To be fair this thread's title and timing make it a very easy target for "git gud" replies, of which I think most (definitely mine) were meant to be taken lightly, and OP seems to have done so. No need to make a fuss out of this.

Meh. To me, the above comments seem more like insults than "jokes" (or maybe just poor jokes) but whatever. If the OP doesn't mind, then sure.

My problem is not that it is too hard, rather that the controls are poorly designed.

I really never had any issue with the controls, and I played it with a worn-out 360 controller.

Same here. After you get the hang of the game its pretty clear that the control scheme is downright perfect. Hell, you can remap pretty much anything.



The basic control scheme is not good at all, but when I adjusted it, the game became much more intuitive. I actually think it's good in this typ of game to only have eight directions in which to shoot, since it affects the strategy and skill you must employ.

Just remap the controls. I'm playing on PC with an X1 controller. For me A=Jump, B=Switch weapons, X=aim, Y=dash, RT=Shoot, LT=Ex. Shoot. I like this control set up because I can constantly shoot while jumping and doing everything else.

Rubbish too frustrating to play

...not much time to post on here anymore, used to be some good ol times on here...

I just beat the game in 5 hours, but I guess I can see why people feel like it's too hard. If you feel like you can't shoot and aim at the same time, just go buy the green power from the store: it'll make all your shots be redirected toward the enemy. Also buy the Smoke Dash option, which makes you invulnerable when dashing, and you're all set.

I never really had to map the buttons on the controller either, I know some people prefer shooting on the RT, but I just left it on the X and it was alright for me. xD

No way you beat cuphead in 5hrs! I mean, unless u played the bosses on easy. I don't see how it's possible otherwise unless you're a damn video game wizard.

No wizardry, mate. I guess I just didn't struggle with the controls like the OP did, and got quickly adjusted to the game's pace.

Here, just in case my claim feels too rocambolesque, say hi to the thumbnail!
