Reviews

“Also, wenn ich sage 'Cthulhu Saves The World' sei jetzt schon eines meiner Lieblingsspiele von 2011, dann können Sie sich sicher sein, dass ich nicht einfach nur dem erstaunlich präzisem Spielablauf ganz wie bei JRPGs der 1990er, oder der eingängigen Synthesizer-Musik oder der Menüführung verfallen bin. Es ist einfach ein wirklich cleveres, erfreuliches Spiel, und es zollt dabei ehrlichen Tribut als auch urwitzigen Humor.”
Eurogamer
“Es passiert selten ein Spiel aufzufinden, dass sowohl unterhaltsam, als eich einzigartig witzig ist, und 'Cthulhu Saves the World' ist wirklich beides.”

This game is so great and a huge improvement over Breath Of Death.

- The soundtrack is just incredible. Way better then you would expect for such a little game.
- The battles are actually really fun and challenging. (if you play on hard!) You won't come far by spamming the "Attack" command in this game.
- The dialogues have a lot of humor and are fun to read. A lot of 4th wall breaking too.
- If you die in a battle and you didnt recently save you can use one of the rare 1 UPs you get to try the fight again instead of having to redo everything after your last save. This saves a lot of frustration (especially for unexpected boss battles) and making it limited also prevents abuse. Every RPG should have this!
- Every enemy has some hilarious flavour text.
- You know how normally in dungeons you get easily lost when you want to find the path with the chest before the path that will continue the game? To avoid this they added torches to the ways that will to further so big dungeons are a lot less tedious now!
- No more random encounters in a certain area after roughly 30 battles. If you still want to fight you can just initiate a battle from the menu.
- Different enemies often have different abilities and ways to fight. So you don't feel like you are fighting the same enemys again with different sprites.
- Actually has a pretty entertaining story.

If you like JRPGs or even remotely enjoyed Breath Of Death then you need to play this.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Definitely exceeding expectations. I thought that gameplay looks terrible and the title is just wrong. Two weeks ago I launched the game to convince myself, how bad this game must be. I was wrong on so many levels. Game mechanics are solid and RPG elements are simplified, yet well designed.

Biggest selling point is the theme. Lord of insanity and saving the world just sounds strange. Authors used this setting to make hilarious and remarkable moments. Cthulhu is loveable character; he just wants to destroy the world, to do so he must become true hero. This makes no sense... actually most of the game doesn't make any sense and that is a good thing, because almost every dialog makes me laugh.

Big thumbs up.

A throwback RPG that combines great humor, art style, soundtrack, and battles. You play as Cthulhu, who's power must be regained by his becoming of a hero. As you progress through the game you gain followers with customizable abilities and play styles. Though it is not perfect and is rather tedious, it is definitely a great buy for only three dollars.
