hmm looks interesting, especially as Chaosium has given its blessing.

The generous folks at Red Wasp Design (based out of Bristol, UK) will be doing a little sponsorship with us for the forthcoming game.

I also found out that the lead designer, Tomas Rawlings wrote the 2007 MULA monograph Dark Mirror, so already quite a history of Cthulhu love from their team.

Looks like the game's due out on both Apple and Android platforms.

Is this game out yet? I just upgraded to an Android Incredible 2, and I looked for this game in my apps store, but it wasn't listed.

It's been a lot of work to get this far, but thanks to the power of kinematoscopes and the tubes of the interweb, we can bring you images of the game so far...

That does look really good. Can't wait to start blasting tentacles and undead.

I hope so. My partner has just got used to my owning an Android tablet. Not sure that she would be happy if I had to buy an iPad, even if it was for review purposes.

I just got it today. The interface is a little clunky on my iPhone 4s (I have difficulty choosing characters, sometimes I have to tap multiple times in several places before it recognizes who I'm trying to select) but it's otherwise pretty entertaining. And hard. I haven't made it past the first level even. :) I'd imagine an iPad version would be a nice way to play as the graphics are quite nice. Anyway, anyone else had a chance to play with it yet?

I have it, I am liking it but it is a bit difficult to use the touch screen controls at times, on top of that one level has a big bug, but that will be fixed. At £3 its a really good game and if you can just pick it up!
The static in my mind, leaves me hollow and unkind.

But really hard on the iPhone. I bet the iPad version kicks ass

Seems well done. Very nice on the iPad. Some bugs as other have noticed. Lacks a bit of documentation. I'm only partway through the second scenario (of how many?) and it doesn't feel like CoC . . . yet at least. Hoping it gets weird soon. :)

Right now, I could recommend it for CoC fans but I've been burned before with CoC apps.

I'm more optimistic with this one though . . .

Yeah, I played Necronomicon as well. It took me a while to get the hang of it but I never felt like I was getting anywhere with it. Either extremely hard or there was a component missing. Or I just sucked at it. :)

I made it past the first battle in The Wasted Land last night and there's some character customization that was on more familiar CoC territory for me, but still not so much with the Mi-Gos and Shoggoths or loss of sanity. But looks like it's coming in later levels.

Not sure I think the Cthulhu Mythos feeling is there, it feels more like a shoot em up game so far. The update that some minutes ago did not impress as the game now crashes, which it did not do before the update. Mixed feelings, not that great is my summary at the moment but I've only played it a little (on an iPad2).

It seems the 1.2 update fixes many of the issues some people were experiencing.

According to Chaosium's web site an Android version is in the works, too.
