    Good idea, but there are too many annoying problems with the interface and the gameplay. For example when you fail a mission there's nomway to go back and reconfigure your soldiers. The only way is to restart the whole game again. Also the camera moves automatically to the character, so if you want to attack an enemy multiple times you have to move the camera every time, dozens of times...Good idea, but there are too many annoying problems with the interface and the gameplay.

    Not very faithful to Cthulhu table top game traditions, but it is an enjoyable turn based tactical game nevertheless. [Apr 2012]

    Red Wasp Design seems to prefer detail to elegance, and that's exactly the wrong call to make on the iPhone. It's also a damn shame in a game with such an obvious affection for its own characters and the Lovecraft mythos.

    Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land takes a genre that hasn't received much love in recent years and revamps it for modern devices whilst keeping the original gameplay intact. It's such a shame then that the game's few flaws stifle the enjoyment of what could otherwise be a new classic iOS game.
