Joyously thoughtful yet equally (and knowingly) silly old-school tactical roleplaying comes to iOS.

Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land manages to get a lot of things right, like the story, style, and basic gameplay mechanics, though the game’s high amount of difficulty will probably turn off some players. Now that Red Wasp Design has released an update, this is arguably one of the best turn-based strategy titles on the App Store. Fans of horror and turn-based strategy alike, consider this one a must buy.

It’s hard to foster unknowable delirium and brain-crushing dread while also asking player to, say, swap health packs with a party member. That doesn’t make Call Of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land a lesser game. Red Wasp’s role-playing game is a fine exercise in strategic decision-making and moodiness. The dark battlefields evoke some of the gloom that characterizes Lovecraft’s work, as does the campy dialogue exchanged between British soldiers and occultists as they describe your objectives. Even as you move from fighting soldiers to slaying monsters, though, the game’s overall sterility keeps it from fully reflecting its inspiration. After a while, you’re just watching numbers get bigger as you take turns flinging pain across the battlefield. The only madness here comes when you run out of resources well into a fight and have to restart from the beginning…

Habt ihr Lust auf eine richtig schlechte PC-Umsetzung eines mäßigen Mobile-Titels? Dann könnte Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land was für euch sein! Furchtbare Kulisse, krümelige Auflösung, eine Steuerung aus der Hölle, nicht angepasste Menüs und übelkeitserregende Sprünge einer viel zu niedrigen Kamera bieten ein Potpourri des Grauens. Und das alles für unterdurchschnittliche Rundentaktik im Cthulhu-Universum, die weder inhaltlich noch spielmechanisch wirklich überzeugen kann. Ja, es gibt ordentliche erzählerische Ideen, ein Erfahrungssystem und unterschiedliche Missionsziele, man ist aber Lichtjahre von der Klasse eines X-Com: Enemy Unknown entfernt, was ebenfalls für das iPad erschienen ist. Ich muss jetzt erstmal eine Familienpackung Reisetabletten einwerfen!
