Anmeldelser

“Så når jeg siger, at Cthulhu Saves The World allerede er et af mine yndlingsspil fra 2011, kan du være sikker på, jeg ikke har været påvirket af dens forbløffende præcise pastiche i de tidlige ​​1990'er-JRPG klicheer, skinger synth-musik, klumpede menuer og alt det der. Det er simpelthen et rigtig smart, yderst underholdende spil, og det er lige så meget ærlig hyldest som frække spoof.”
Eurogamer
“Det er sjældent at finde et spil, der er både underholdende og virkelig sjovt, og indtil videre er Cthulhu Saves the World begge dele.”

About This Game

Sindssygens Herre, Cthulhu, var fuldstændig rede til at styrte verden ind i sindssyge og ødelæggelse, da hans kræfter blev forseglet af en mystisk troldmand. Den eneste måde, hvorpå han kan bryde fri af denne forbandelse, er ved at blive en sand helt. Red verden for at ødelægge den i en episk parodi-RPG-rejse bestående af frelse, romantik og sindssyge!

Centrale elementer:

  • God, gammeldags RPG-stil blandet med et fornuftigt, moderne design!
  • Forvold sindssyge på dine modstandere både for sjov og for fortjenestens skyld!
  • 6-10 timers lang mission med oplåselige alternative spillemåder & sværdhedsgrader, som forhøjer værdien af at spille spillet igen.
  • Highlander-tilstand – XP-optag firdobles, men kun én karakter kan blive taget med i kamp af gangen!
  • Score Attack-tilstand – Tjen point ved at besejre bosser på det lavest mulige LV!
  • Overkill – Spring til LV40 i én enkelt kamp! Perfekt til senere gengivelse og eksperimentering!
  • Cthulhu's Angels-tilstand – Nymikset tilstand med nye spilbare karakterer, ny dialog, nye bosser m.m.!
  • Alle de gode træk som spillere kender og elsker fra Breath of Death VII: The Beginning er vendt tilbage – gameplay med højt tempo, kombinationssystem, tilfældige sammentræfsbegrænsninger, forgrenende LV-Ups, m.m!

Player Stats for refrence:
18 hours completion time (Not the dugeons after the final boss)
Hard difficulty
favorate team (abrivated to first two letters to prevent spoilers)
Ct, Sh, Oc, Da
tldr; 8/10

This game is impressive to say the least; the devs clearly thought about all the things players hate in rpgs and removed them.
Get lost in a dungeon?
Random encounters disabled after 30 fights (though can be fought manually)
Also dugeons are all of reasonable size so you don't feel stuck in one place forever
Fights constst mainly of spamming heals rince and repeat?
You are timed to beat fights so you must plan turns in advance depnding on the encounter.
Random encounters constrantly the same enienes?
Encounters get pregressively harder as you approach the 30 cap limit

Though the game has its issuses mainly due to its small budget:
Simalair dugeon looks; art and format
Charatchers have simalair abilities
No respecing attributes so if you pick dumb abilities on a character, tough
Some chartchers seem to be favored, The later in the game you obtain a character the less abilities you see for them the fact you have to wait a few levels before thay get anything of value makes it disappointing when you get a new charatcher.
low end graphics outside cutscenes
Occasionally you get cheesed when all the fast eneimes kill you medic(s) on the first turn, though its rare enough not to be a problem
some fights simply boil down to damage rush constests end game

Regardless of its flaws there are some things I have to commend it for
Waaaay longer that expected for price range
Even though you do fight random encounters a bit for filler it is about 7 hours per dollar with extras which is obsurd for a single player game that doesn't require multible playthroughs.
Witty dialogue
most fights require forthough since increasing enemy damage means more than one unconsious party member means game over.

To paraphrase my other review of Breath of Death VII (same developer)--

"Okay, but not really worth the time. CStheW is funny, but would have been better as a comic strip. Go play a real RPG, or play outside!"

I think I spent a lot of time on this because I'm a completionist, and a fan of the Cthulhu mythos. But in hindsight, naw man.

The creators of this game succeeded in reproducing and improving the game play of classic NES RPGs. They got rid of unnecessary features and streamlined the whole experience, but they completely failed to capture the charm, atmosphere and "style" of the old classics. My biggest problem with the story, characters and atmosphere was that they don't take anything serious and constantly break down the fourth wall. Some may perceive this as amusing, but it is annoying to me. The whole idea to use Cthulhu as an involuntary hero is great, but the Cthulhu Mythos is characterized by madness and horror, which are both missing here. Instead of Cthulhu they could have used Mickey Mouse.

This game has some cute moments, funny characters and dialogue, and that's about it. There isn't much of a storyline, what little there is gets presented in the first half hour of play. Finishing the game only took me 11 hours but felt a lot longer. Overall this was good enough for the price, but not worth replaying.

Skip to the bottom for a summary.

Gameplay- Pretty typical JRPG as far as gameplay goes. You have your party and you explore dungeons, towns, and the overworld. As with most JRPG’s you can find a wide variety of armour and weapons, each with their own special abilities. The only feature that separates this game from any other JRPG is its combat. It is turn based, with the unique twist; after each turn the monsters slowly get more powerful. Ultimately all this normally does is forces you to use the spells that cause the most damage, and subsequently use up the most of your magic points. After the battle is over your characters will regain full health and a portion of their magic points back. This at first is pretty fun, however after a few hours you will only be playing this game for its storyline, as it is pretty repetitive. Also, each area has a predefined amount of monsters you can fight, which for me really encouraged exploration as I wouldn’t have to fight endless enemies. I would definitely recommend turning on the developer commentary as it is always optional to read, and is usually funny/insightful to read. 6.5/10

Sound- Really not much to say here, some catchy little tunes and mostly generic sounds. 5.5/10

Graphics- They are stylized to look retro and I believe it works out pretty well for the most part. The overworld and towns always look pretty good, and handcrafted. The dungeons on the other hand look all pretty similar and boring. The monster sprites however are beautiful. There are many, many monsters in this game and they all are unique and awesome! 7/10

Storyline- This is what makes this game rise above other similar games. This is an epic tale describing Cthulhu's struggle to regain his powers, and to do so he must become a hero. This is a very original idea, and was wonderfully delivered. Cthulhu is a great anti hero. All the side characters are well thought out and enjoyable. This game is funny, and is able to remain so for the entire game. This is by far the greatest aspect of the game. But I do feel as if the combat and exploration sometimes was not broken up enough by story bits. Honestly I would have preferred a shorter game that focused much more on the story than anything else. 9/10

Summary- What a wonderful little gem, and an addicting one at that. Despite the generic gameplay, the storyline rises this above most of its competition. The graphics achieve what they set out to do, as does the sound.

Pros
+Story
+Art Style
+The Developer Commentary

Neutral
-Sound
-Majority of the Gameplay and Combat

Final Score- 8/10
Recommended Purchase Price- Full Price (At the time of this review only $3.00!)

This game is the reason why I love indie JRPG's. Its funny, engaging, and visually attractive. The controls are tight and it doesn't feel like the many JRPG's that are out there. Only problem is battles can feel repetitive sometimes, which is a big problem with most JRPG's. If you like elder gods and RPG's then this game is for you.

Classic RPG style game with the visual style of early Final Fantasy games. Controls are pretty simple and the gameplay is rather straightforward turn based combat. The story is highly entertaining. Admittedly I have not finished the game myself but from the amount I have played I can tell you it is a fun experience. If you enjoy classic RPGs and humour this game is for you.

A great game that makes you think of the time where games didn't have to be so advanced, that you do not have a clue of what to do next at all. Like nowadays rpgs where everything has to be as advanced as possible and mostly not for it's own good (do we really need all of those menus and item creation /combination (like having to collect 7 diffrent items and not only that but also like 15 of each one so that you can make one lousy piece of armor is that even fun ?) Well of course it isn't and this game has nothing of that :D and i love it !
the music is great i love the overworld theme and the battle theme. The gameplay is easy and simple made you gain experience in battle and each time you go up a level you can chose one of two level up bonuses (think of it as character costumization) you can also build up combo points in battles that lasts longer to be used as one mighty blow against a boss Here take that 1500 Attack points !! :D that's allways nice.
Your party learns the typical Fire,ice, lightning,earth,wind and water spells and some healing spells i like that many of the spells can be targeted at all enemies or allies if you chose that when you level up :)
One special thing i love is that every area in the game has a Battle counter wich is counting down how many battles there still is in each place when this number of battles is reached you can go around exploring without getting interupted THATS GREAT !! and you can even trigger your own battles in the menu if you still need that extra Exp thats the greatest thing i have ever seen in a rpg !
The game is fun if you like those good old rpgs where getting stronger is the key to winning :)

An unapologetically self-aware pastiche of early 90's RPG tropes that's easy to pick up and hard to let go, fun to play and still decently challenging, with a catchy soundtrack, bonus gameplay modes, informative snippets of Director's Commentary, and shout-out upon shout-out to Lovecraft's works, and it comes with Breath of Death VII for only three dollars.

Oh, and you play as Cthulhu in a kilt.

If that's not an instant-buy, I don't know what is.

Thankfully this is a rather short RPG because I don't see how anyone could tolerate it much longer than that. Pretty much every dungeon is exactly the same, big sprawling maze with random encounters and the occasional chest. The hardest thing about the game is finding the next level of the dungeon, really. Mobs generally aren't too tough and it's easy to be overpowered in this game. The bosses are kind of a joke; even the final boss took practically no effort at all. The story kind of stops caring about a quarter of the way through the game and there's no sense of atmosphere at all. It's not even that f funny, either. There's some jokes but they're far too infrequent for it to really be a comedy game. The last dungeon has a big difficulty spike which is a bit unwarranted but even then, hopping into an optional dungeon and then back into the last dungeon basically destroyed all the challenge I was having. It's just... bland. I don't like RPGs in general and only got this in a bundle, and it was short enough for me to not get bored of it, at least. I wouldn't call it "bad" for what it is, but I certainly can't say it blew me away or anything.
