Game Summary

Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land is a turn-based strategy/role-playing game based on the award winning Call of Cthulhu RPG. Developed in conjunction with Chaosium and based their multi-award winning Call of Cthulhu RPG. Set in the midst of World War One, the game pits your team of investigators and soldiers against an ancient enemy, one older than humanity itself... Can your team of investigators keep their grip on sanity long enough to stop these diabolical plans?  The fate of humanity is in your hands...

Call of Cthulhu was originally the title of a novella by cult American horror writer H.P. Lovecraft (1890–1937) which has, since it was published in 1928, captured the imagination of generation after generation of fans. Returning to the horror from Lovecraft's original 'Reanimator' set during the dark days of WW1, Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land draws the player into a nightmare world where the terror of mustard gas and trench warfare are but a foretaste of what is to follow.

Review This Game


I never played the mobile version of Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land but having played the PC port I can clearly tell that the ...port was not that good. If you looked at the user interface, even if you had no idea that it was originaly a mobile game, you'd probably start to realize that it was originaly a mobile game. The user interface is clearly designed for mobile devices and feels someone strange on PC. The gameplay is nice along with the Lovecraftian setting and the. Being a mobile game the graphics are not that impressive. Still, it's a very satisfying and fun game to play if you're into turn based games specially with the Lovecraftian setting. Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land might not be a game for every fan of turn based combat but it's certainly a good game, probably not the best PC port but still a good game, someone people might prefer to play it on mobile devices though. Still, at $4.99 you can't go wrong with this one.


It would be really good game, but the quality of conversion from original, Android version, is... Well, "mediocre" is the best t...hing, I could tell about it. The interface unintuitive and the graphic shows quite good, that it is the simple conversion from Android. But even with this things - I've really enjoyed this game. The campaign is quite nice constructed. The tactical aspects are suprisingly good and polished (you need to think, how you can survive against the hordes of well-armed German Soldiers/Myth Monsters with a couple of heroes). And the equipment is very characteristic, and even the number of weapons is satisfactory. If you're the fan of H.P. Lovecraft, you can add one point to my note. And it is the game mainly for HPL fans, because "normal players"... Well, they won't be disappointed, but they won't be fascinated too. Pity, that there is no multiplayer option - it could be really interesting experience, to fight against living oponnent with myth-monsters on your side.
