Cuphead Mobile (beta) is a game created by fans with the aim of bringing the popular indie game to smartphones. The APK, despite being in testing, shows a lot of potential and brings much of Cuphead's fun to mobile phones.
The game is a bit cumbersome and requires at least a current basic Android phone. You need at least an Adreno 450 GPU, 1.8GHz processor and 1.5GB of RAM.
The most recent version of the game is beta 6.1, which brings news such as: several stages, bosses and even the possibility of parrying, as in Cuphead on consoles.
It is worth remembering that Cuphead Mobile APK is a “fangame” without any connection with the official game.

– Is it worth downloading?
Free, offline and very similar to the original. It's really worth downloading the APK and getting to know Cuphead Mobile. Of course, at any time the project can be closed by Studio MDHR.
But I believe that if the developer leaves the game just free and without any kind of monetization and ads, the indie studio can see it as a tribute and leave the game as is, or even call the developer to work on the official mobile version. This has already happened with Castlevania on Java phones.
Cuphead Mobile is surprisingly fluid, running at 60 fps. The controls are simple and the gameplay is very similar to the original. The game does not support Bluetooth controller, but it is possible to use Octopus to create compatibility.
