Рецензії

“So when I say Cthulhu Saves The World is already one of my favourite games of 2011 you can be sure I've not been swayed by its astonishingly precise pastiche of early 1990s JRPG cliches, strident synth music, chunky menus and all. It's simply a really clever, hugely enjoyable game, and it's as much honest tribute as cheeky spoof.”
Eurogamer
“It's rare to find a game that is both entertaining and genuinely funny, and so far Cthulhu Saves the World is both.”

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.

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).

Надзвичайно захоплива іграшка! Я ніколи не полюбляв (власне я просто не грав) грати у такі ігри, вони пройшли якось повз.
Але ця гра мене надихнула, адже вона проста і не вибаглива, та ще й із чудовим музичним супроводом!
Рекомендую як гру для відпочинку, розслаблення та приємних спогадів.

До речі, чи не саме через цю гру Ктулху став так відомий? Особливо як приємний, ледь не позитивний персонаж?

П.с. Ктулху фтагн!)))

Добре, що я купив цю гру в наборі за 22 центи, і я збираюся написати серйозний огляд, а не "купив гру, продав карти, заробив ні цента, прибуток".

Геймплей- досить типовий для більшості RPG. Ми можемо досліджувати підземелля, міста та надземні частини карти(ліси, поля...). Як і в більшості RPG ви маєте широкий вибір зброї та обладунків, кожену зі своїми спеціальними здібностями.
Звук- справді його і не так багато, але помітні маленькі мелодії.
Графічно гра стилізована під ретро-стиль.
Історія(Ctrl+C,CTRL+V)- Це те, що робить цю гру вище подібних ігор. Це епічна історія, що описує боротьбу Ктулху, який відновлює свої сили, і щоб зробити це він повинен стати героєм. Ктулху великий анти-герой. Усі побічні персонажі добре продумані і приємні. Ця гра є смішною, і може залишатися такою протягом всієї гри. Це, безумовно, найбільший аспекті гри.
Оцінка: 8/10
