For the amount of influence his writings have had on the realms of fantasy and horror, it’s sad that more games haven’t been set in the realms of Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos. There have been a few, sure, but they've been rare and the good ones are rarer still. Thankfully, Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land falls pretty firmly in the latter category. I’d love to see a console port and a sequel would probably make me vomit tentacles of joy. There’s certainly plenty of untapped material in Lovecraft’s shared universe to work with.
Call of Cthulhu: The Wasted Land takes a genre that hasn’t received much love in recent years and revamps it for modern devices whilst keeping the original gameplay intact. It’s such a shame then that the game’s few flaws stifle the enjoyment of what could otherwise be a new classic iOS game.
