Cuphead Perfect Score Record Smashed In 49m 20s
Mike Sanders / 3 years ago
One of the stand-out games of 2017 was definitely Cuphead. Combining a platforming run-and-gun with a 1930’s animated was a fantastic idea and many players loved it. They also occasionally hated it based on the very unforgiving nature of the play. Owning it myself I can say, it is a very difficult game.
While my playthrough was more of a monotonous grind of trial and error, some players have an ability which frankly makes me wonder why I’m finding it so hard.
The Mexican Runner TMR
Fans of speed running, YouTube or AGDQ may be familiar with The Mexican Runner or TMR. We certainly are here at eTeknix as he kindly gave us an interview last year after he successfully completed the entire licensed NES library of games.
In the most recent ADGQ, he successfully completed the Turbo Tunnel level in Battletoads while blindfolded.
He has, however, amazed us again by completing Cuphead, with a perfect score, with a time of just 49 minutes and 20 seconds.
The record of 49 minutes and 20 seconds was a significant improvement on his previous time (which incidentally was also the world record) which he was able to improve on by circa 5 minutes.
The run itself wasn’t perfect with a few mistakes, but by a few, I really mean, a few. He died or made a mistake less often than most of us make on any regular boss fight.
The full run of the video can be seen below and we definitely recommend checking it out. It certainly is a testament to persistence and patience in being able to run such an unforgiving so competently.
We would, however, advise that if you saw him at AGDQ, his language on his YouTube channel is a little more colourful, so viewing discretion is advised.
