Cuphead, the classic-animation-style indie game from StudioMDHR, has only been out for a few days, but it’s already notorious for being a difficult.

That’s what makes YouTube gamer Aeraloth’s recent run through Cuphead so impressive: He beat the trippy run-and-gun action game without taking any damage. The video opens with the title character fighting an awfully angry potato before he takes on an onion and carrot. Aeraloth deftly takes down each boss with perfectly timed jumps and attack combos.

It takes him less than one minute and 30 seconds to deal with each boss before moving on to ever kookier levels, like an airplane that transforms into the clouds shaped like Zodiac characters and a crazy clown who has a whole amusement park at his disposal to kill you. 

After defeating the game, Aeraloth made a post stating he’s coming back for a round two to try completing the game on Expert.

Cuphead centers around two brothers, Cuphead and Mugman, who must fight their way through more than 28 bosses to collect debts owed to the Devil.

You can check out the game’s trailer below.
