Ban this filth: Fake Cuphead games sneak onto Android


Death to the philistines

Welp, it was just a matter of time. At least six playable ass-to-mouth Cuphead bootlegs are now on the Google Play store. Don't even bother: They are nothing like the run and gun shooter we love. Half of them are ad-filled guides. What's worse, a number of spammy malware apps are also posing as the full game. 

I know it's tempting, but you do not want titles like CupHaed and Jump Cuphead Jump on your phone. Let's not forget Cup Hero Head, who can't even get their own game name right the description (presumably to trick the search engines). Most of the clones simply display screenshots and trick users into viewing ads, with the exception of this one where you're driving away from a gorilla. The playable games are simply reskins of other low-quality titles.

Le Sigh

It blows my mind how flagrant some of these are, using entire scenes from the original. I get that maybe some of these must be student or fan works, but given the care that StudioMDHR put into their game they must be having kittens. 

I wasn't able to find any on iOS yet, as Google seems to approve new apps much faster. A number of reviews mention having to give 5 star reviews before being able to fire up these applications, which is surely how they're getting around automated vetting. Please don't feed the trolls.

Not "angain!"  

At the time of this writing over 5,000 people have this nonsense installed. Obviously, none of these are the real game or even anything like it -- avoid these at all costs. Keep your tiny red short pants on and pray the original developers give us a mobile port before North Korea melts our phone towers.
