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!

Hey there, Internet!

Burton-esque artwork, can every game please look as beautiful as this?

Don’t Starve! (pocket edition) – official description: Don’t Starve is an uncompromising wilderness survival game full of science and magic. – You play as Wilson, an intrepid Gentleman Scientist who has been trapped by a demon and transported to a mysterious wilderness world. Wilson must learn to exploit his environment and its inhabitants if he ever hopes to escape and find his way back home. – Enter a strange and unexplored world full of strange creatures, dangers, and surprises. Gather resources to craft items and structures that match your survival style. Play your way as you unravel the mysteries of this strange land.

Just look at this cute robot! WX-78 so far is my favourite character in this game!

My thoughts: This is a game that probably never will get boring, you have no tutorial to start with, the only hints the developers will give you is a Tim-Burton-like cartoon in the beginning that shows how Wilson got into that dangerous wilderness that the game is located in! You will be able to change the world a bit (by adding more or less sources, enemies, changing how long the day / night / season will be or if you want more or less challenging weathers) but the map itself will be generated randomly. Don’t Starve actually is what you want to do, eat, keep up your health and sanity, build a base, make friends with different creatures so they will fight for you – a long-time-entertaining survival game. As time goes by you collect more resources, learn how to create different things and by surviving you collect points and unlock different characters that all have slightly different stats and abilities / fears to influence the game! Probably the best purchase I’ve ever made on my mobile (btw, bought it on my iPhone 4S to afterwards find I could not play it on said mobile and had to wait 3 months until I got my new iPhone 6… I better read the requirements next time…)

And if you really need help, try the Don’t Starve Wiki!

Do you have some mobile app that keeps you entertained for hours? Have a nice evening!
