    At first I thought this just another twinstick shooter. But this is much more than meets the eye. The world of H.P. Lovecraft was put in a pleasing pixel design while mechanically it manages to challenge you from top to bottom.

    This Lovecraftian roguelike does something very clever - it’s not punishingly difficult. Instead, it relies on a strong mystery plot. Unforgettable experience is guaranteed.

    Overall I appreciate Lovecraft’s Untold Stories for being a procedurally generated roguelike that stands out from others in its genre with a unique atmosphere and spooky tone. Being more concerned with resource management and exploration than twitch bullet-hell gameplay was a smart move, even if that falls apart a bit when the combat does come around. While it has its flaws, this is a game I won’t have a hard time recommending to those interested in the genre- a perfect little game to fire up know and again late at night with the lights turned off.

    Lovecraft’s Untold Stories is a competent, yet a bit repetitive, twin stick shooter with a good atmosphere, some depth and a very interesting pixel art take on the genre. Fans of the genre and the theme should take an interest here.

  1. Lovecraft’s Untold Stories lulls you into a false sense of security with its mostly banal horror, and then boom! Penguins screaming like people. I can still hear them. [Premature Evaluation]
