About this game

Lovecraft’s Untold Stories is an action rogue-lite with RPG elements. You explore randomly generated levels based on the H.P. Lovecraft stories, fighting cultists and all kinds of monsters from the Mythos, improving your weapons and gear, solving puzzles and challenges, and looking for clues and knowledge to defeat the Great Old Ones and the Outer Gods.

LIVE H.P. LOVECRAFT’S STORIES

Lovecraft’s Untold Stories is based on H.P. Lovecraft’s stories. You will experience first-hand the cosmic horror created by the genius of Providence. Every character will go through an investigation that will take them through different locations, from the creepy old Victorian mansion to the abandoned hospital where forbidden experiments take place or the jungle where lost tribes celebrate forgotten rituals, just to name a few. Levels are randomly generated: it will be a different experience every time you play. Also, they vary depending on the character you’re playing with. Look for items and clues to unlock secrets and new stories.

5 CHARACTERS, 5 WAYS OF FIGHTING THE MYTHOS

You can play as 5 different characters, each with a different playstyle and storyline. A private detective, a witch, a thief, a professor, and even a ghoul—each with different stats, weapons, and combat moves, creating five entirely different gameplay experiences. The Detective offers a balanced playstyle, with average Health and Stamina. The Professor is a specialist in ranged combat, with less Health and a special shield granted by his weapon, the Tillinghast. The Witch does a lot of damage, has teleport abilities and elemental shields of fire and ice, but also a very low Health. The Thief is a specialist in melée combat that takes advantage of its stealth to maximize her damage. The ghoul does a lot of melée damage, has a high Health and regenerates itself, but can’t use medkits at all.

Pretty solid game play so far. Not to difficult, and the atmosphere feels right. I'll adjust my rating after playing a bit more. Update: A bit difficult to maneuver with phone controls. It wasn't an issue until certain game mechanics appeared. I think turning off click move will help, but I'm not sure. No way to access inventory storage to sell and severely limited backpack. The "markets" change regularly, so you have to play backpack management way more than feels enjoyable to me.

I loved the atmosphere from the moment I got inside the mansion. Haunted even. I didn't mind the occasional forcing my character to the right if I moved just a hair too far left, even though it made the combat more challenging than it needed to be. I liked that this game was challenging. But, when I beat the boss and entered what was supposed to be a safe room to look at the stuff you found, just to die to a sanity interactable, I was less than happy. There are some laws you don't break.

This is a must try. My only real complaint is that there are environmental dangers that are significantly harder with virtual joysticks. You'll notice this in the first map. You can run away from pursuing enemies and come up to a puddle of acid that leaves mobile players at a disadvantage. If you hit the edge of your phone and can't go down, you run into acid. Adjust your finger placement and the enemy catches you. It doesn't ruin the game, but it is harder than on console. Controller is ideal.
