How to Play

Difficulty and controls

Start by choosing your difficulty level. There are four basic difficulties to choose. These are:

  • Simple
  • Regular
  • Expert
  • Invisible Challenge

The fourth option, “invisible challenge” features invisible ammunition, making it harder to avoid attacks. Once you’ve selected your difficulty level, there are various control schemes to choose from to suit your playing style.


Fight an airborne battle on a side-scrolling level. The boss battle against Wally Warbles begins immediately when you start and ramps up through three phases. You have three lives, so do your best to avoid and repel his attacks while landing your own. After the frantic battle, Wally will pass away on a stretcher, ready to eat!

Aviary Action

This free web version of Cuphead is based on a boss battle from the original game. Aviary Action is an epic boss battle fought in three phases against a cuckoo-clock known as Wally Warbles. Each phase poses new challenges as Wally evolves into a new form with more challenging attacks.
