  • The one i’ve been waiting for Aug 26, 2021

    By Castaigne
    This is the rogue-like i’ve been waiting for. Lots of nods to Lovecraft and the Mythos; great little easter eggs (like a certain Reanimator). It has quirks you need to learn painfully and does not hold your hand but as someone whose favorite game ever is Dark Souls, i’m good with that. I paid a non-discounted $10 and i got that value in the first two chapters with just one of the four playable characters. Highly recommend if you’re a Mythos fan for sure.
  • Too hard Jun 25, 2019

    By Lingrush24
    Great aesthetics and world building, but... I’m a veteran Wayward Souls player and I can’t beat the Professor’s prologue, even after trying for hours on easy difficulty. The buttons are small enough to miss in the heat of battle, it’s easy to aim in the wrong direction, and overall the controls do not feel precise. One little mistake and I’m swarmed by enemies. Wish the controls were more like Wayward Souls. Or could you at least make the buttons bigger? Or add a balance update for the Professor? Hope you fix this so that I can once again enjoy the game. UPDATE: Thank you for the response. I did not know about the custom controls, and it significantly helps to be able to make the joysticks bigger. Now I can keep going, but Easy difficulty is still no joke!

    Amazingly dark and interesting. An instant cult classic celebrating one of the most influential/inspirational pioneer authors of both horror and science fiction. An absolute must play to anyone with an interest in all things occult.
  • I killed myself. It was awesome! Nov 10, 2019

    By DonGatoTheCat
    I saw my own skeleton and turned my shotgun on myself. What the hell?! Didn’t see that coming. Just a sample of what’s in store when playing this game. Simple enough, but you’re probably going to be your own worst enemy and die from your own errors or insane choices. Either way, you’ll probably die. Or not. They give you enough medical supplies to help you keep from bleeding out, so maybe you’ll have a long run and get to meet the Old Ones. And then die. I’m only on Chapter 2, but so far am loving it. Atmospheric, enough secrets and Lovecraft lore to stay intriguing. It is pulling me away from my other games I said I wouldn’t get distracted from until they were finished. I recommend this game.

    Great game!!! I am really enjoying this game. The artwork is fantastic. The settings are superb. You can tell that the devs and designers are huge H.P. Lovecraft fans. I love H.P. Lovecraft and the Cthulhu mythos and playing games set in that universe are generally great but this one just really makes playing and getting lost in the atmosphere of the game enjoyable morseo than others I've played.
  • Already stop 3 Elder Ones! Jan 13, 2020

    By Truth News
    I complete all the characters story so all I need to is stop the rising from two other elder ones. It totally difficult to play hard mod but I don’t get bore at all. I able to find all items but I has struggle to find the cat face necklace, please help me! But the problem is the control, it is difficult to aim and difficult to use ability so please fix it

    So far it's pretty fun and interesting with great atmosphere. I wish it had better controller support. When my controller is plugged in it recognizes that it's connected but the start button is the only one that works.
  • Just what I was looking for Oct 5, 2019

    By MathySaxWailer
    This adventure is everything a Lovecraft fan could want, and plays in a style similar to Diablo II. The only thing I didn’t like was the layout of the controls, but I soon realized they’re customizable. A lot of thought went into creating this game. It’s huge and has an exceptionally polished feel. Congrats, dudes!!

    This game is a joy to play, and I can tell the devs put an A+ effort into the making and execution. This game has so much to offer. I’m still playing the detective character, and look forward to progressing.

    Absolutely brilliant! Lovecraft fans will be pleased. After playing many Lovecraftian style games, I have found one that scratches my eldritch - itch. Well done, gentlemen.

  • Please patch control over saves is needed May 6, 2020

    By XO Beso Abrazo
    I love this game but I get frustrated over the lack of control over savings. I can spend an hour sweeping everything clean, go to the yellow inventory box (without going to the safe place) and then if I need to leave, I just restart as if I would had done no progress at all in the level. If I go to the next level inside the chapter (IE green mines) but need to leave to the safe place I go back to the beginning of the previous chapter with blank state! Please save me hours of gameplay or just let me have them for fun and not be it of frustration. The lack of saving control is truly ruining gameplay. Please add a patch to give us save control. Thank you so much.

    Doesn't work with Razer kishi controller though controller is detected. Developers seem to be avoiding fixing and responding to this issue. Game isn't playable as advertised and want a fix or refund.
  • Oct 2, 2021

    By Paul Baba
    Looked like a fun game but it doesn't actually have controller support. If this ever gets fixed I will update the review. I just cannot figure out how the game can recognize the controller but not respond to any of the inputs. I'm using a Razer Raiju and this is the first game it hasn't worked with. Truly a bummer, if you fix this let me know, for now I'm deleting the game.
  • Too hard May 18, 2020

    By Boner69&69somemore
    I wanted to love the game but after the twentieth time dying in the same level and replaying the same room battles over and over again I gave up on it. If you like replaying the same fights over and over and over and over and over again because you die and can’t save your place even though you’ve cleared twenty rooms, this game is for you.
  • Jul 28, 2021

    By bos gaming second
    This has to be the worst game I've ever played the story may be good we'll idk cause even the "normal" difficulty is trash seriously you die alot and there's one room with 50 spiders with like 300 baby ones you can't pass chapter 4 and the damn traps are everywhere in chapters 3 and 4 I can't get a damn break you guys ruined the Lovecraft franchise for me.
  • Using keyboard on iPad Pro Jan 1, 2020

    By EvilMinion
    Trying the Lite version I was able to play using the Apple keyboard for my iPad Pro. When I bought the full version I was not able to use it anymore. Upon further inspection, looks like the lite version has a lot more recent version than the full version. That’s annoying.
  • Jul 3, 2021

    By Cath Seth
    Okay, I take my words back, this game is too buggy to get 3 stars. I actually lost my game save after defeating one of the final bosses, the she-goat one if it matters, game returns me to main screen as if I never played the game, only option is to start a new game. Thanks for wasting my time, I deleted the game.
  • Very Tedious Dec 30, 2019

    By Whyareallthenamesgone?
    I gave it a good shot for a couple hours but it's just not very fun. Also whenever you try to throw explosives as the detective, they literally never get thrown the direction you are facing. Turning invisible and sneaking up on a monster with a molotov cocktail doesn't work, because when you go to throw it the character decides to turn around and throw it against the wall.

    Getting the made with unity screen and then a pink screen, nothing else. Edit: had to uninstall (which refunded and tied up the money for days) and reinstall (which charged me again), but then it did work. As far as the game itself, it has too many floor traps and they reset continually, bandages here and there, be prepard to bleed out over and over, rediculous difficulty (have ran into a couple cultists, dispatched of them without a bit of damage but the floor traps have killed me repeatedly, the floor traps, nothing but the floor traps alone..), too late to get a refund. After a while i tried the game a second time, it won't start and run right, it stammers, it's looking for online connection, won't run right without it, mobile games should be mobile.. (-1 star, from the 2 i gave it to begin with). To think this game costs so much.. worthless game that it is.

  • Very fun Jan 4, 2020

    By Luvstospoog
    Some of the negatives that are stated in the comments are there but not at the degree that is said, the game is a challenge, but gives you the feeling of accomplishment instead of holding your hand
  • Aug 17, 2021

    By DiggaMortis Grave
    Nostalgia overload! I love every second of this. Lovecraft is hard to replicate but I believe this is an Ernest try that achieves what it sets out to.
  • Too hard Jun 25, 2019

    By Lingrush24
    Great aesthetics and world building, but... I’m a veteran Wayward Souls player and I can’t beat the Professor’s prologue, even after trying for hours on easy difficulty. The buttons are small enough to miss in the heat of battle, it’s easy to aim in the wrong direction, and overall the controls do not feel precise. One little mistake and I’m swarmed by enemies. Wish the controls were more like Wayward Souls. Or could you at least make the buttons bigger? Or add a balance update for the Professor? Hope you fix this so that I can once again enjoy the game. UPDATE: Thank you for the response. I did not know about the custom controls, and it significantly helps to be able to make the joysticks bigger. Now I can keep going, but Easy difficulty is still no joke!

    This is a must try. My only real complaint is that there are environmental dangers that are significantly harder with virtual joysticks. You'll notice this in the first map. You can run away from pursuing enemies and come up to a puddle of acid that leaves mobile players at a disadvantage. If you hit the edge of your phone and can't go down, you run into acid. Adjust your finger placement and the enemy catches you. It doesn't ruin the game, but it is harder than on console. Controller is ideal.
  • Love it, but so many crashes Oct 4, 2019

    By Beanseses
    I love this game. It’s so much fun and very challenging, but I had a couple of crashes during chapter 2. Now I’m on chapter 3 and the game crashes are more frequent than before. It’s making it impossible to move forward in the game :(
  • Really cool game but.. Aug 15, 2021

    By crop duster dude
    For anyone with larger hands I’d say it borders on unplayable joystick wise. I only spent 0.99 on it though and I enjoyed it so I deleted it and went and got the console version instead.
  • The game is good but... Sep 29, 2019

    By dvangfdgjfjhghhgdgjf
    It keeps crashing for me please fix this because this game is amazing and really fun. This game is something I could play all night if it didn’t crash all the time. Please fix.
  • Almost 5 stars Jun 8, 2019

    This game is off to a strong start. If they can fix the save issues, and add controller support, I would rate this a five star game!

  • A lot of promise, but gets dull quick. Feb 16, 2020

    By Jtchurch
    At first it seemed like it was going to be an exciting otherworldly mystery, but quickly becomes a chore of pointless exploring and collecting, exploring and collecting, like a typical dungeon game without much narrative to keep it interesting. For $9.99 I expected to be entertained and engaged, not just initially preoccupied then bored.
  • Amazing game but Jun 4, 2019

    By Ghastly13
    Please add auto save! You should be able to close out then come back later to finish your run. Also, it stinks gameplay doesn’t pause when you open your inventory makes it really hard to heal/use an item during a serious battle
