Recensioner

"Så när jag säger att Cthulhu Saves The World redan är ett av mina favoritspel från 2011 så kan du vara säker på att jag inte har styrts av dess förvånansvärt precisa pastisch av klyschade japanska rollspel från tidigt 90-tal, skärande syntmusik, klumpiga menyer och allt. Det är helt enkelt ett riktigt smart och mycket njutbart spel, och den är lika mycket ärlig tribut som en fräck parodi."
Eurogamer
"Det är inte vanligt att man hittar ett spel som både är underhållande och som faktiskt är roligt, och än så länge är Cthulhu Saves the World både och."

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

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).

Cthulhu Saves the World is an old school RPG where you find your party members and fight random battles with a turn based system. Part of the charm to this game is that it mimics the original Dragon Quest games in color, menus, maps and even the feel of the towns. If You've played Breath of Death VII, you've played this.

After each battle, each party member gets restored to full health, including dead characters. Even if you escape, you get full health. This makes the game streamlined and easy even on normal (medium) difficulty. To compensate for this, the game balances out by powering up the monsters after each round. Their attack strength keep going up by 10%. It puts pressure to finish the fight fast. There is also no run, but instead its relegated to a magic skill given to one character. One of the biggest enjoyments that I get out of the game is the ability to chose one of two bonuses every time a character reaches a new level. Do you chose this spell or that spell? Do you want +20 Max HP and +20 strength or +10 Strength + 10 Willpower +10 Magic +10 Vitality? Even at level 40, the game still had choices for me.

The challenge is in your MP / mana. You will get some back after each battle, but outside of an Inn or a save point (you can save on the fly too). You won't be able to refill your magic. On the surface, fighting and button mashing makes quick work of enemies. Deeper into any dungeon makes fighting difficult without using magic or techniques (both cost MP / mana). While battles are random, the dungeons have specific numbers of battles before the random battles get down to 0. So if you fight 20 random battles, you won't have any other random battles to fight. This works well, because you can go deep into a dungeon, have no mana left and need to walk back out of the dungeon. Having 0 remaining random battles ensures your survival. Since there is no sort of easy teleportation. A few dungeons force you to beat the boss and walk back. Luckily there is a sprint button to speed things along..

Spells get upgraded by your choices when you level up. A lightning spell can go from X damage to Y damage when you select it maybe ten levels after you've earned the original lightning spell. There is a full heal spell that will not only give a character full health, but revive them as well. Making it easy if a character dies that you're trying to heal, well they're just resurrected! There aren't any items, but there are potions. You can't buy these, you need to find them in caves. They resurrect and give full health to any character. These are necessary if your lone healer dies. There is a health regenerating zombie though and a vampire sort of attack with another character.

You can find 1-Ups that let you retry a fight that wiped out your party. I was a fan of this and I remember it from Final Fantasy Legend 2. You still get a choice whether you use it or just accept a game over and load a save file. There were plenty of times that I chose a save file over replaying a fight. You can save on the fly and there are save points that will do it for you. Usually before boss battles.

You start out with the legendary Cthulhu, a squid monster with the power of darkness. He has a bold, comically evil personality that is one of the joys of the game. To balance him out, you'll come across six others that will join you. A happy healer named Umi that has a crush on Cthulhu. A talking sword named Stabe that offers some sage advice and wisdom. A necromancer / hot chick named October with a whip and damaging spells. I won't spoil the rest, but you get a sense of how quirky the game's personalities are. They each have input no matter how silly. The only catch to having a party of 7 is that only four can fight at once and you always need Cthulhu in your party since this is his game. If you ever get stuck deep in a dungeon with no mana, you can switch out your characters on the fly. The inactive characters still gain experience with the active ones.

The humor really fit better with this game than Breath of Death which relied on video game references. Cthulhu Saves the World felt like it had its own jokes that fit with the personalities of the characters. Some were good, others weren't, but they still fit what the game is. I'm never a big fan of story even in role playing games, but I felt like what I did read was enjoyable.

There is a combo system which I find it useful. Every attack builds a combo. There are special combo boosts and breakers that when used will multiply the damage by the combo, but reset the combo to 0. It would be more useful if these specials weren't already the highest damagers in general. You can keep using them to kill the enemies quickly without having to build a combo. Even the bosses felt like pushovers and I can tell I was underpowered for the bosses when each of my characters would level up twice with some bosses. Its just a testament to how easy the game is on normal difficulty. After playing through Breath of Death on hard, I didn't want to make that mistake again.

For equipment, Cthulhu Saves the World is bare bones. You have a weapon and armor. No headgear, no accessory. Towns don't have more than a couple weapons and armor for your seven characters. Each character has one type of weapon and armor. None of these types get shared, so if you get a sword, you know only Cthulhu can equip it. If you get a Tome, only October can equip it as armor. There are a few treasures here and there in dungeons. Treasures do feel more rewarding to find in this game, because a lot of treasures in Breath of Death were jokes. There is no interaction with anything outside of talking to townspeople. Nothing hidden in book shelves and dressers, just jokes about what's really in them.

The world itself feels big enough. There are around 15+ dungeons and 4+ towns. You won't get to travel the oceans or visit far off lands, but the dungeons are the real maps. Each dungeon feels big enough. There are mostly underground areas, a forest and the ruins of giant towns. You can tackle them pretty openly. I found myself wandering deep into an overpowered dungeon and I couldn't get out. I had to one by one grind through the limited fights hoping each fight would be easy enough for me to overcome. I didn't know that I wasn't supposed to be there at my level. Of course grinding through that made everything else a cake walk.

The graphics are bright and beautiful and feel like they would fit in with the Super Nintendo era. Cthulhu goes the extra mile with what I can only describe as comic cut scenes going into certain sections. You still have traditional dialog beneath, but there are beautiful 16 bit style pictures over pictures that add to the jokes. The music itself also adds a lot to my enjoyment of the game.

For those that complete the game, there are bonus modes. One new mode lets you replay the story on level 40 and another mode that lets you replay the game with different characters, dialog and bosses. It makes me want to replay the game in a new way. There is even a developer commentary (written) that you can chose to have on. It gives a lot of insight and rational. I found myself reading them more than I paid attention to the dialog.

If you don't want to get too involved with a 40 - 80 hour RPG, Cthulhu Saves the World could be for you. With saving anywhere and refilling your HP after every battle, that makes for an easy game. Some people like easy! $3 is a great price for the content in my opinion. It also comes with Breath of Death VII in a combo pack for the same price. I feel like I got my money's worth with just this game alone.

Cthulhu Saves the World may go down in history as the best ever parody old-school RPG. You play as Cthulhu, which is awesome, and every detail from the monsters you fight to the items you can buy to the insane dialog is equally clever and hilarious.
