"A classic RPG in the 8-bit style in which curiously, Cthulhu attempts to be the hero. Kinda..."

“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.”

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.

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 short, but humorous and awesome RPG, sold for a steal. The music is most impressive, and ranks among the best in the genre.

This game was an absolute blast to play. I am a long time fan of Lovecraft and his creations and this is one adaptation which is both true to the source material and hilarious at the same time.
They also pepper many other references throughout and the game play is traditional RPG, though the other game modes unlocked after beating it, unlocks more possibilities.

This is a fun game with funny dialog and good game play.
This is good in the fact that it is not played with a mouse and I liked that asspect of the game.
The speed up button is very help full and good for use when against weaker monsters but I have noticed that there is a suddden jump in level in the difficulty curve so I would reccomend some grinding or clearing all areas you can.
I would deffinatly reccomend this game and it is only 2 euro and it comes with a free game that is in a similar design and so if you enjoy this game or finish this game you have something to look forward too.
I would deffinatly reccomend this game to any friends who like games like I play.
