Recensies

"Dus wanneer ik zeg dat Cthulhu Saves The World nu al een van mijn favoriete spellen van 2011 is, kun je er zeker van zijn dat ik me totaal niet heb laten beïnvloeden door zijn verbazingwekkend nauwkeurige potpourri van JRPG-clichés uit het begin van de jaren 1990, doordringende synthmuziek of chunky menu's. Het is simpelweg een geestig, erg van te genieten spel en zijn veel eerlijk eerbetoon als onbeschaamde parodie."
Eurogamer
"Het is erg moeilijk een spel te vinden dat beide vermakelijk en wezenlijk grappig is. Tot nu toe is Cthulhu Saves The World het allebei."
Joystiq

Steam Big Picture

Over dit spel

Als heer van krankzinnigheid was Cthulhu volledig klaar om de wereld in krankzinnigheid en vernieling te storten, toen zijn krachten werden weggehaald door een mysterieuze magiër. De enige manier om de vloek te breken is een echte held worden. Red de wereld (zodat hij vernield kan worden!) in een epische parodieuze RPG-reis met verlossing, romantiek en gekheid!

Belangrijkste kenmerken:

  • Een 'old school' RPG-stijl vermengd met modern, fijngevoelig design!
  • Maak je tegenstanders krankzinnig voor je plezier en winst!
  • Een 6 à 10 uur lange verhaallijn met de mogelijkheid om spelmodussen en moeilijkheidsgraden vrij te spelen voor een grotere herspeelbaarheid.
  • 'Highlander' modus – XP wordt vervierdubbeld, maar je kan juist één personages tegelijkertijd in de strijd gebruiken!
  • 'Score Attack' modus – Verdien punten door bazen te doden op het laagst mogelijke level!
  • 'Overkill' – Ga naar level 40 in één gevecht! Perfect om nog eens te doen en te experimenteren!
  • 'Cthulhu's Engelen' modus – Een remix modus met nieuwe speelbare personages, nieuwe dialogen, nieuwe bazen en meer!
  • Alle grote kenmerken die men kent en bemint van Breath of Death VII: The Beginning zijn er weer - gevechten aan hoge snelheid, combo-systeem, limieten op willekeurige ontmoetingen, vertakkende level-ups, en meer!

This game is funny and has its moments but I put not recommended because theres too much rpg walking, the maps aren't obvious to navigate, its designed to be difficult to remember so you get lost multiple times doing something simple, some of their jokes are at lacks of good content or distractions from actual story, and its not obvious that you can walk under bridges or ramps so you back track repeatedly wondering if you missed something. And even then its alot of the same old boring tiles. Buy it if you like free rpg games that are poorly made. I mean it has novelty yeah but when theres other games I can play I don't wanna waste my time here that often walking back and forth five times lost.

Old school final fantasy gamepley, which is enjoyable to most, not really my cup of tea. However, Lovecraftian games are always my weakness. Sadly though, this game is not very Lovecraftian at all. Some familiar names pop up, and conditions like the "Insane" effect try, but if you're looking for a good Call of Cthulhu-esque game, this is not it. Like I said, gameplay wide its pretty solid, with only some minor balancing issues. But story wise this games falls flat for me, and thats really what I was looking for in this single player experience.

Very funny, very charming, very cool little RPG. It doesn't take a lot to beat it, but it has some really nice elements to it, like being able to "pick a fight" in an area rather than just looking around for monsters, and there being a battle counter that, after being exausted, stops random encounters.
Also has Cthulhu, so that's a big plus.

Fun, inexpensive RPG. Despite its parodical nature, battles are super fast and combat is intuitive, especially for a turn based RPG. Enemies get 10% stronger with each turn, meaning you have to actually use each of your turns wisely to finish battles quickly. A lot of the fat from other RPGs has been trimmed here, and the game will only take a couple hours to beat, but it's not expensive and it never gets dull. Also the soundtrack is pretty solid.

Far as weak points go, most of the dungeons are kind of forgettable, the game is linear and the art is just okay (though I do love the Cthulhu wielding a sword sprite). Humor can be obvious and hit-or-miss but it has its charm and good moments.

Definitely worth the price of admission, especially during a sale.

Cthulhu Saves the World: Super Hyper Enhanced Championship Edition Alpha Diamond DX Plus FES HD - Premium Enhanced Game of the Year Collector's Edition (without Avatars) is a very fun game that exceeds my expectations. As the 142 runner up in the 2011 game of the year award, I feel that it should be very proud.

Pros:
+Decent graphics, although I had to turn texture detail down a bit, ant the anti-aliasing was difficult to configure.
+The gameplay is very simple to pick up, as it only took 18 hours of various Reddit PDFs to get down to the nitty-gritty with it.
+This game contains the only known footage of Cthulhu facepalming, which is invaluble to many hardcore followers.
+Before its release on Steam, I clocked 7,000 hours in it, requiring me to hire people to remind me to eat and drink.
+AAA graphics exceeding that of BO3, max settings.
+Heart-wrenching story leaves you wanting more to the very end.

Cons:
-Even with Crossfire SLI, the animations were a bit too much to handle. My Titan X cards running overclocked were struggling to pull the load above 20 FPS.
-There is no resolution setting above 2048x4096, which is very dissapointing, making it difficult to read the text when playing it on my 12K 90" flatscreen.
-The lowest settings look awful, and it is my only option, otherwise, the game crashes.
-It seems that the microtransaction for the avatars is broken, as that is the only thing between me and owning all of the DLC.

Overall: 7.825/10. The story is well written, and cross-refrences with The Dunwich Horror reveals that no bounderies are overstepped in the plot, and therefore, the canon remains intact. The graphics are amazing, and the photorealistic rendering payed off. However, the game runs slower then a whale on land. Perhaps it is due to my mere 128 gigs of 2400 mhZ ram, but something leads me to believe that that will suffice. The soundtrack is OK, but it seems that the devs forgot to turn down the DUNGEON_VICTORY.OGG by .23 decibles, because Sony Vegas revealed in post-production that the volume was simply too loud. The controller support is fantastic, and the only drawback is that my Xbox One Elite controllers wireless dongle failed to connect properly. If the devs prove able to fix these simple bugs, then I would have no problem upping their score to a maximum of 9.735. Lovecraft would be proud.

I picked this up on sale, and it was worth the time I put into it. Very funny dialogue and plot twists. Very large dungeons to explore. It is a little difficult for those who aren't used to the less forgiving RPGs. You have to play it the way it wants you to play it. You can't just auto attack through it. It really was a great mix of challenge and comedy.

Recommended! :)

Basic Information
Title: Cthulhu Saves the World
Developer: Zeboyd Games
Publisher: Zeboyd Games
Genre: Classic-style RPG

General Impression
Cthulhu Saves the World is an intriguing 2D classic and almost JRPG-like experience, peppered with spoof segments. The game does feature H.P. Lovecraft’s most famous creature, but within this storyline it is mostly set up for comic relief. I did enjoy the gameplay as it is reminiscent of so many other titles, but what really kept me playing it, was the amount of parody that can fit in a rather small game. It’s anything but simple though and once again it proves that appearances can be so deceiving. It has plenty of replay value and a price tag that is justified.

Strong Points
+ Interesting setting and use of humour.
+ Steam Trading Cards.

Weak Points
- Unbalanced difficulty scale.
- No Steam Achievements.

Rating 7/10

Congrats Zeboyd Games. You have made an Incredibly Amazing game but sadly underrated like Breath Of Death.


Pros: Lovecraftian RPG, Awesome Combat Mechanics, Alien Cat Paws' Insanity Toggle,Perfect dialogue, Hard Boss Fights,
Cons: the game is so short!

This is probably my 2nd Favorite game on steam
So buy it and play it!

This game is absolutely amazing! The Soundtrack, the Commentary, the shattered fourth wall, the interation between Cthulhu and the narrator, the story, the charcters, characters arcs, story progression, battle system, skills, items, the comedy, the bonus features, and misc. elements. It's just perfect. I HIGHLY recommend this game, especially when it's only $3 and comes with Death of Breath VII (Combo Pack).
