Customer Reviews

Inspired By HP Lovecraft

Simple to learn, hard to master horror game inspired by the writings of HP Lovecraft. Mild learning curve amps up slowly making this the perfect creepfest for when you want to defend your lighthouse from the hordes of the deep. Graphics are quite impressive with rain and lightning effects creating just the right atmosphere for late night gaming.


I didn't upgrade so I don't know about the ads thing but the game itself if gnarly. And the ads aren't too bad anyway

Paid for, the ads came

Paid for the game to support the developer. But then an update brought ads all over the game. Thanks, deleted.
