    Cthulu Saves the World lives up to the retro-RPG style with it's fun gameplay, challenging bosses, and humorous wit. I would recommend this for anyone who is a fan of the 16bit genre playstyle, it won't be a disappointment.

    This game rocks. A great 16 bit rpg that is full of humor and great characters. Plus it is super cheap. I got this game for 2 dollars on steam in a package along with one other game. I really had a fun time playing this game. Its not one that you will play for hours and hours at a time, but its a great game to play for 45-60 mins just to pass some time.

    Great flashback to the 16bit rpg era.
    Clever and fun story, of the super evil villian Cthulu having his world turned upside down, travels the world doing heroic deeds to regain his power.

    Whether the stars are right for Cthulhu Saves the World may depend on how much you love Lovecraft. If you're just looking for a good retro-RPG, you might want to wait for the patches before giving this one a try.

    It's extremely funny, the battle system is well done and the graphics and sound will whisk back to the old days of RPG goodness. It's not perfect, but anyone looking for an amusing little adventure would do well to pick this one up.

    A standard dungeon-crawling JRPG, Cthulhu Saves the World is more of a cheeky love letter than a parody, and that makes it all the more enjoyable.
