Mobile: Cthulhu Virtual Pet
Hey there, Internet!
I only do one hour of social media each day (unless really bored or sick in bed while unable to sleep any longer) but that obviously is enough to see my friends post a tiny text about some app and get me interested. Happened with the lovely purple haired lady you might remember from her own blog a few years ago or mentioned in one of my Random posts in 2015.
Simple but cute graphics – and better play with sound on!
In Cthulhu, virtual pet you have to take care of your tiny Cthulhu, a virtual pet like the Tamagotchis probably everyone had back in the 90s. It wants you to feed it, clean or play some mini games with it, you have to switch off the lights when it gets tired and sometimes it wants to haunt a city or drown a ship with you and to take care of the witnesses, for those you can also change the names. Every level Cthulhu seems to change a bit – a level might take a few days to finish. And the background does change as well, day/night or ships appear randomly on screen.
See tiny cthulhu grow – wondering what the next level will look like!
The only thing I actually do not like is that you can’t choose the language you play the game in. I really prefer to have all games, apps, movies, whatever in english. But as seen on their facebook page they are working on it as well as on other things like different skins! When you are sick of the adverts that appear every other minute, it only is 0.99€ as ingame purchase and they are gone forever! Other than that it is a free to play game by Neurocreativa and definitely addicting, available for iPhone and for Android on google play as well. No matter if you are a Lovecraft fan or enjoyed the Tamagotchis or the 8bit greenish Gameboy games back in the days, this game could be fun to play!
Official description: The stars just came right and it’s your turn to wake up the great God from his eternal dream to resume his rule on earth. Since you were the one who invoke him, you have to take care of him as if he were a new born, until he gets bigger and stronger again. For that purpose you have to feed, entertain, clean, bath him and prevent him form getting angry because he’ll start to eat his witnesses. If none is left he´ll fall into the eternal dream one more time and you’ll have to wait for the stars to be right again to wake him up.
By the way, if you need some music to get in the right mood for this game, how about ‘Hey there Chthulhu by Eden Brooks‘?
Any nice apps you have tried lately? Have a nice evening!
