Arvostelut

“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.

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 is great. I bought it on a sale for $1.49 and it came with another game as well. I've only played the story mode on this (there are a couple more as well) and it was more than worth the money. It is similar to the old school final fantasy, and is very nostalgic of NES/SNES games. I would recomend this game to anyone who enjoys Cthulhu and/or old school games.

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.

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.
