Cthulhu Saves the World is possibly one of the most underrated RPGs out there. Its retro style and gameplay are iconic of the 90s RPGs that it strives so hard to parody. What’s more is that TinkerHouse Games have recently ported the game to the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch, meaning that any average Joe who owns one of the aforementioned extortionately priced devices can play through the game to their hearts content whether they’re out and about or at home sitting on the toilet.
The only difference between the iOS and PC version is the new touch screen control scheme. You’ll be required to turn your iDevice on its side to play, with A and B buttons in the bottom corners of the screen handling actions and tapping anywhere handling movement. Other than that there are no changes, with all the features of the original game, along with the remix mode ‘Cthulhu’s Angels’, included in the app. For a price of just $1.99 this is definitely worth a look whether you’ve never played the game before or are a Cthulhu veteran. Here’s a link to the App Store page.
However if you’re unfortunate enough not to own an iOS device then the game is also available for free on PC, along with its predecessor Breath of Death VII, to anyone who purchases Penny Arcade’s On The Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3, also developed by Zeboyd Games, on Steam. However this offer only lasts until Monday 2nd July.
