    Cthulhu Saves the World is an indie game title available on X-Box Live. It is
    a console-style RPG in the vein of early 16-bit era RPGs. It is the fourth
    release by Zeboyd Games and their second RPG. It currently sells for 240 MSP.
    It is also available on Steam and Gamersgate for PC, bundled with Breath of
    Death VII, for $2.99. Make sure you pick the bundle as it is also available by
    itself for the same price.
    
    This is the first indie title I have purchased. In general I am wary of buying
    any game that only works online, but given its low price and high quality as
    a game of this type, I pulled the trigger and picked it up and did not regret
    it. I do not regret this at all as Cthulhu Saves the World is an excellent
    game that I highly recommend to anyone who enjoys "old school" console RPGs
    in the vein of titles from the 1980s and 1990s.
    
    This title has gone through a major title update since the first time I
    published this guide. Robert Boyd and his team have added extra dungeons,
    party members, and a different questline called Cthulhu's Angels.  Near the
    end of the guide you will find a section detailing what I know about the
    title update. Feel free to e-mail me and provide updates on any gaps I am
    missing.

    Cthulhu Saves the World begins with Cthulhu rising from the sea, prepared to
    destroy the world. Suddenly a mysterious man appears and seals Cthulhu's power
    away. Cthulhu slowly sinks back into the sea.

    After an anti-climactic rise from the sea, Cthulhu will wash ashore defeated and
    dejected. The narrator will explain that Cthulu must become a true hero to
    regain his powers. Cthulhu will proclaim that this is what he will do.
    
    There's a chest right near where you start, so be sure to get it. Head west to
    find a girl being attacked by gooez. These enemies you can blaze through just
    by using the normal attack. Once they die, the girl will be introduced as Umi
    and join the party.
    
    Make sure you fully explore all dungeons. Each dungeon only has a limited
    number of random encounters and the game seems tuned for you to complete each
    of these cycles. While you search each zone for all the treasures, you will
    most likely burn through these encounters before reaching the end anyway.
    
    Enter the cave and make sure you get the chest containing the Fleece Tunic in
    the west. The stairs to the next floor are to the north and then to the west
    at the next split. On the second floor is a chest with potions to the east,
    while the way outside is to the west.
    
    Work your way up the cliffs outside to run into Elonalina, Switchblade, and
    Dash, the "Three Heroes of Goodly Justice." After a brief verbal confrontation
    they will attack.

     * Target the cleric first. You should be able to take her out in a turn or  *
     * two. Note that Umi can both heal and stun. You can use her stun early on  *
     * to take one of the heroes out of a round to lessen their initial damage.  *
     * Once the cleric is beaten, take out the thief. You should then be in an   *
     * easy position to finish when only the hero remains.                       *
     *****************************************************************************
    
    Although defeated, Cthulhu guesses that they haven't seen the last of those
    heroes. Most likely they have respawned at a nearby shrine.
    
    Continue up the cliff and back inside the cave system. There's a chest in here
    that contains 75 gold. The way out is west at the first split and north at the
    next. This path will loop to the south and to a set of stairs. The dungeon's
    last two chests are in here, one containing an Iron Sword and one containing
    150 gold. The upward stairs on this floor will take you to the way outside.
    
    Once outside continue climbing up the cliff. You'll see a bridge to the east.
    Once you try to cross the bridge, the Star Terror will rise from the sea to
    strike at you.

     * Try to build up your combo meter on Star Terror early on. Save Umi's stun *
     * for if the Star Terror severely damages the party. As long as you have    *
     * done all 25 battles, this fight should be very controllable, but you may  *
     * still need to use Umi's heal. Once your combo is high enough to finish or *
     * nearly finish off the Star Terror, use it and end the battle in style.    *

    Continue east to Miskatonia.

    The 1-Ups are in the inn. The only real requirement for you here is to talk to
    the boy in the southwest corner of the town to learn that his dog has vanished
    while on ancient ninja burial ground. I recommend talking to everyone just
    because, but when you are ready head out of town and north through the woods to
    a non-descript cave.

     * There's not much special about this boss. I beat him just spamming the    *

     * them if you need to.                                                      *
     *****************************************************************************
    
    Exit the cave and return to Miskatonia. Talk to the boy to receive a Trance
    Sword. Once you do, go into the heroes club and talk to the people inside to
    learn about the Shrine of Heroes. The shrine is located east of Miskatonia.

    This dungeon is a big maze, although for the most part the chests are located
    relatively close to where you want to go. Begin by going all the way west,
    then go all the way north. Go east, then go south at the nearby split. Follow
    this to the stairs and go up them.
    
    From here go west and then south. This will lead to some downward stairs. Go
    down them and hit the switch. Work your way back to the gated path you passed
    on the way and go through where the gate was and up the stairs. Follow the
    path to the sword at the top of the shrine. Talk to the sword to engage Sharpe.
    
     ***************
     * Boss Battle *
     *****************************************************************************
     * Sharpe (1500 HP) * 660 EXP * 100 GOLD                                     *
     *****************************************************************************
     * Sharpe, like a lot of encounters of this nature, is more formidable as an *
     * opponent than as a party member initially. Keep your party over 50%       *
     * health while fighting Sharpe. Keep building your combo meter and unleash  *
     * it when you can for maximum effect. Remember that if you use Cthulhu's    *
     * self-heal it will reset the counter, so don't hesitate to use the combo   *
     * beforehand if you think you might need to self-heal. If you have been     *
     * maxing out your battles in each dungeon Sharpe should not give you too    *
     * much trouble.                                                             *
     *****************************************************************************
    
    Once he is defeated, Sharpe will agree to join the party alongside Cthulhu and
    Umi. Once he does, make your way back outside and return to the hero's club in
    Miskatonia. Umi will make another pass at the dark god, but will be interupted
    by a fightened villagar from Dunwich to the south. He will say zombies have
    overun the city and begs for help. Cthulhu will quickly proclaim they must go
    and save the city, so head south to Dunwich.

    *******************************************************************************
    Upon arriving in Dunwich and finding that a zombie apocalypse has occured,
    Cthulhu concludes that his old nemesis Nyarlathotep must be responsible. He
    insists that the party minimize zombie casualties, however, which will force
    you to navigate around the various "partying" zombies in the city.
    
    Enter the first house and move east out the broken side of the house to find
    the Zombie Tunic. Go inside the church and then out the broken side to the
    graveyard and work your way around to the Sharp Blade. Continue your way around
    the tombstones to the street.
    
    Keep going to the southeast and to the next section of the city to find a
    sorceress fighting some zombies. She introduces herself as October and gladly
    joins the party. Once the scene ends, go to the northwest to claim two 1-Ups.
    Work your way east from here to find a chest containing an Alchemist Dress.
    
    Your ultimate goal is to make your way east. There's another chest in the
    church along the way containing the Bane Sword, while the last chest is in the
    southeast containing 1200 gold. Once you have both, head off the east side of
    the screen. This will lead you to Nyarlathotep himself. After demanding to know
    why Cthulhu is trying to stop him, Umi and Sharpe declare that the dark god is
    now a hero, enraging the other dark god into attacking.

     * Nyarlathotep (6000 HP), Fat Zombie (280 HP) (2) * 1934 EXP * 110 GOLD     *
     *****************************************************************************
     * You need to focus on Nyarlathotep until he is downed and ignore the two   *
     * zombies with him. This is because if you do kill a zombie, Nyarlathotep   *
     * will simply ressurect it. With four party members, you can have three of  *
     * them focus on the boss while Umi heals when needed. Utilize attacks that  *
     * add to the combo meter over simply higher damage attacks. Once you do use *
     * the built-up combo, Sharpe's strike tends to do more than Cthulhu's so    *
     * you probably want to use it. Once Nyarlathotep is out of the way, kill    *
     * both zombies to claim victory.                                            *
     *****************************************************************************
    
    Once Nyarlathotep is defeated, everyone will party and have a good time with
    the zombies. After the festivities, the party continues east.

    *******************************************************************************
    The Swamp of Despair is an optional dungeon between Dunwitch and the Ghost
    Forest. Being an RPG, this means it is semi-optional and most players will want
    to go there.
    
    There are two chests in the swamp you want to get. One contains a sword for
    Cthulhu, while the other has a tome for October. Upon opening the chest with
    the tome, however, you will be attacked by the guardian of the swamp, the Fire
    Whale.

     * The key to the Fire Whale is to use the status ailment blind. The Fire    *
     * Whale is extremely susceptible to it, so have Umi hit him with it every   *

     *****************************************************************************
    
    Once you have both items and finished out your battles, leave the swamp and

    The first thing you probably notice reading this is the enemy variety of this
    dungeon. The enemies here also have a wide range of attacks, so do not hold
    back on using magic. Remember you regen some mana and all your health every
    battle so you can be more liberal in your use of abilities than most RPGs.
    
    To get to the end of the first area, go north and then east at the next split.
    Go north at the split after this to claim the Bull Whip. Go south, past the
    split you just came from, and follow the path. At the next split, go north to
    to another split. Going west here will yield a 1-Up, while going east will move
    you to the exit and some other chests.
    
    On the next area grab the two chests. The exit here is in the northwest. Head
    there once you have both chests. Once you move to the next area you will face
    one of Cthulhu's ex-girlfriends.

     * You also want to try and avoid driving the princess insane as this seems  *

    In Providence you can talk to everyone in town to learn of a small farm to the
    west where apparently strange lights in the sky are appearing. Leave town when
    you are ready and head around the lake to the farm.
    
    The farmer there will tell you that aliens have been abducting his cattle. Walk
    outside and talk to a cow. Suddenly a light in the sky will abduct the party.

    The party will come to onboard the alien ship. A strange cat creature named
    Paws will appear. Cthulhu and Paws it seems were old drinking buddies back in
    college. Paws will explain that his race is abducting cows to turn them into
    super soldiers to conquer the world. He tires of constant conflict, however,
    and says he wants to join Cthulhu's quest.
    
    The space ship is decently sized and requires a lot of backtracking around that
    is somewhat hard to describe. Essentially you need to deactivate forcefields
    around the ship by accessing consoles, then backtrack to the field that went
    down to find more consoles. While you do this you will find the six chests
    littered around. Make sure you get them all before facing the boss.
    
    The boss is on the bridge which is accessed behind the final forcefield. On the
    bridge you will find Paws' evil clone Pawz. Pawz is the mastermind behind the
    creation of the Bovinators and will attack the party to fulfill his plans of
    conquest.

     * Pawz only has one eye and, interestingly enough, it seems that his only   *

    When Pawz is defeated, approach the terminal on the bridge. Umi will attempt to

    will get everyone off in time, but the ship will be destroyed when it crashes
    into the river. This will, however, open the path up to Kingsport, the
    Graveyard of Memories, and the Water Shrine.

    Enter the shrine to meet Daere. Although the old man seems totally crazy, he
    will agree to join the party. Head north and go west at the split to find the
    chest with the 1-Ups. Go back to the split and continue on. You can go either
    way at the split, they both go to the same place. After they merge follow the
    long path around.
    
    At the next split go west (north goes into some water you cannot enter yet).
    Go east at the next split to get 10,000 gold, then return and go west into

    was. The water is gone now, so go down into the canals. Follow the path
    around. At the split, go east for the Swim Dress. Go back and head west and
    then south to the next room.
    
    All paths here lead to the stairs in the northeast. Take them up to the top
    floor. Hit the switch here, then go back down and into the canal. You can
    find a Holy Dress and a Rebirth Sword in this room, so grab them. When you
    are ready, take the stairs in the center of the room.
    
    At the first split in this room, go west to get five potions. Take the north
    path and follow it around until you come to a switch and the Aqua Trident.
    When the water drains, walk down into the canal and go to the southeast and

     * The Fallen Angel makes good use of the insanity mechanic. When she is     *
     * sane she will usually heal herself for several thousand health every      *
     * turn. This amount will go up every turn as well. She will augment this    *
     * with attacks that will eventually wipe everyone out if the fight goes too *
     * lnog. When she is insane, however, she takes significantly more damage    *
     * and is unable to heal, instead doing an attack called Hurt All every turn *
     * until everyone dies. You need to drive her insane to start ticking away   *
     * at her, but depending on your level you may want to have someone in the   *
     * party who can turn her back sane if on a turn you need time to heal.      *
     * Switching back and forth once or twice is viable, so don't hesitate to do *

    The paths through the first floor, and really most of this dungeon, just form
    a large loop. You can grab the Fire Blade and the four potions on this first
    floor. The stairs to the next floor are in the west.
    
    The second floor loops in a big circle as well. This area has two potions, the
    Volcanic Tome, and a Power Tunic. Grab them before going to the third floor.
    
    The third floor is this same sort of layout. This one has three chests
    containing a large amount of gold each. Claim all three and move to the next
    floor.
    
    The fourth floor is a widing path with dead-end branches. The first and last
    of these brnaches, however, each have treasure. The first one has seven rings
    of power, which increase everyone's strength by ten permanently. The last
    branch has some Rocket Claws. Once you have them, head to the peak of the
    volcano to face the demonic dragon.

    Once Ember is defeated, Cthulhu offers to let him join the party... or die.
    Ember chooses the former and flies the party down the volcano.
    
    With Ember in the party you can now fly on the world map by pressing X to take
    off and land. This allows you access to a couple areas you couldn't reach
    before. The obvious places are the Cave of Destiny, the cave opposite the Beach
    Cliff exit, and Innsmouth, located on an island south of this cave. There are,
    however, a couple other islands and a long stretch of land in the north. Sadly
    there are no treasures hidden on these islands, but there are higher level
    enemies that can be encountered randomly.

    After demanding to know why they were trying to murder him, when they should
    only murder strangers, the townsfolk will tell Cthulhu that Dagon has taken
    over and told them too. Enraged that his followers have been stolen, Cthluhu
    will charge to the Marsh Foundry in the north of town to confront Dagon.

    The Marsh Foundrey's main innovation is the use of conveyor belts that force
    you to go a certain direction. At the end of each floor is a switch that makes
    these normal walkways, but until you get there the conveyors will present you
    with the dilemma of claiming chests as you move along, or going to the end and
    shutting them off then backtracking to the chests.
    
    Regardless, the layout of each floor is fairly straightforward. On the first
    floor you will find three chests containing a single gold, a Chaos Trident,
    and a Curse Sword. On the second floor are three chests with five 1-Ups, yet
    another Giant Whip, and an Energy Hilt. On the third floor are three more
    chests with 75000 gold, three more 1-Ups, and a Cultist Robe. On the fourth
    floor are only two chests with an Anti-Matter Claw and 65000 gold.
    
    The fifth floor is flooded. Work your way through and then down to the sixth
    floor where you will find Dagon.

    When you enter the city you will see two paths. Both lead to the stairs to the
    second floor, however each path has a piece of gear on it, so you should
    probably make a full loop and get both of them before heading to the next
    floor.
    
    On the second floor head outside and cross the bridge. In the next building,
    there are four chests. There's only really one path, with long branches that
    lead to these chests and dead-end as you go. Claim all four and work your
    way back outside to the east. Cross the bridge to face Elonalina, Switchblade,
    and Dash once more. They have recovered seven allegedly powerful crystals and
    challenge you once more.

     * They're the same as when you faced them at the beginning of the game...   *
     * Exactly the same...                                                       *
     *****************************************************************************
    
    Continue across the bridge and into the next section of the city. There are a
    lot of paths here, but they all eventually reach the same desination. There
    are three chests on the third floor, so make sure you get them.
    
    The fourth floor has one main path with several branches off it. Each of these
    branches leads to a chest. There are a total of four on this floor. Snag them
    all as you go along. At this point you've most likely burned through all
    fifty battles, so it should go pretty quick. Head up the stairs when you are
    ready to begin the final sequence of the game.

     * Golthulhu is actually fairly anti-climatic. Just hit him with your best   *
     * abilities and the golem will go down fairly quickly.                      *
     *****************************************************************************
    
    Once the golem is destroyed, the party will vanish into another dimension.

     *****************************************************************************
     * Azathoth is weak to fire and holy attacks. I used a party of Cthulhu,     *
     * Sharpe, Umi, and Ember to take advantage of this. Ember and Cthulhu can   *
     * do fire damage, while Sharpe can deal holy damage. Use these three to     *
     * deal damage, while Umi will need to heal every turn. You want to keep the *
     * party as close to topped off as possible. Azathoth can attack everyone at *
     * once for a good deal of damage if he wants. If you ever get down to two   *
     * or less party members, Azathoth will use an instant kill attack over and  *
     * over to prevent you from bringing anyone back. Keep the heals up and burn *
     * him down when you can.                                                    *

    Congratulations, you won. After the ending, be sure to save your game to unlock
    the three bonus modes. Score Attack will give you a score based on your ability
    to defeat bosses at lower levels. Highlander only lets you have one party
    member at a time, but you get a lot more experience than in the normal game.
    Overkill will raise everyone to level forty after you defeat the first Gooez
    when you start the game.

    In addition to the final boss, there is a bonus boss that can be challenged.
    To face him, fly to the cave on the western side of the mountain range where
    the exit from the Beach Cliffs is. Go inside, open the two chests for some
    inconsequential loot, then head upstairs. Touch the monolith to face a true
    hero.

     *****************************************************************************
     * Dem is the main character from Breath of Death VII. Here he is a rather   *
     * nasty bonus boss. His normal attacks aren't too much, but after four or   *
     * five turns he will "prepare." When he does, next turn he will wipe the    *
     * party. You can use Umi to stun him when he does this to give yourself     *
     * another four or five turns, but you need to kill him by then or you will  *
     * be done in. Good luck.                                                    *

    Below is a collection of various data collected from the game. The Item
    Database contains stats and locations of all weapons and armor. The Beastiary
    has name, location, experience, and gold of all enemies encountered. Lastly,
    Random Insanity has information on some of the references found throughout
    the adventure.

    *******************
    Experience and gold are somewhat inconsistent depending on enemy party make-
    up. This is because you get a ten percent boost to the initially programmed
    experience of enemies. The values below are the average you should get, but
    given that the boost is applied to the total at the end of the battle and
    then rounded, there will be slight variations.
    
    Enemies also appear on the world map in the areas around their dungeon. There
    is a total random encounter counter for the entire game of 200 battles on the
    world map.

    * [TUI] Title Update Information *
    **********************************
    Cthulhu Saves the World was released in December 2010 for X-Box Live as an
    indie title. It was the fourth release of Zeboyd Games, although it soon
    became their most popular. After first quarter sales were released, Zeboyd
    Games announced their intention to update the title to include more content
    for a PC release, but also sought a fund drive in order to keep their doors
    open. In return these updates would also be given to the X-Box 360 version
    of the game.
    
    This fund drive was, by their own accounts, a great success. This allowed the
    team to port the game to PC and release it on Steam, where it garnered more
    profits for Zeboyd Games in its first week than it had up to that point on
    X-Box Live.
    
    As I mentioned in my Introducton, I do not have access to a hard internet
    connection until near the end of the year. Since you cannot play X-Box indie
    games offline, and cannot download the PC version without a solid connection
    either, I cannot update any first-hand specifics until that time. For now,
    this section will offer some limited information on the title update content.
     _____________________________________________________________________________
    | Astral Cave is a new dungeon located northeast of the Cave of Destiny. It   |
    | has different loot on different modes of play.                              |
    |-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
    | Bromides were added to the title, similiar to a concept present in the      |
    | Playstation update of Lunar: Silver Star Story.                             |
    |-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
    | Cthulhu's Angels mode was added that changes your party and a lot of the    |
    | dialogue in the game. Your new party consists of a new version of Umi (Dark |
    | Umi), Elonalina, Molly the Were-Zombire, and October. This mode also has    |
    | some variations to the dungeons from the standard game, including different |
    | loot to find and enemies to combat.                                         |
    |-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
    | Dark Umi is the subject of an interesting, but now unrecreatable, glitch.   |
    | In the original title on X-Box Live Umi was only available in her standard  |
    | flavor, while Dark Umi was added with the title update that added Cthulhu's |
    | Angels. If you had a save file before the update, after the update Umi      |
    | would be transformed into Dark Umi in the standard game. If she was in the  |
    | party on the save she would remain as Umi, but once you removed her from    |
    | the party she would transform into Dark Umi. Likewise she would retain her  |
    | equipment, but if you tried to change her gear she would only be allowed to |
    | equip Sharpe as a weapon. Special thanks to Got_Mine for this information.  |
    |-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
    | Dem is now a recruitable party member after defeating him in the Cave of    |
    | Destiny. He also can apparently be recruited by leveling Sara up to level   |
    | forty as well in Cthulhu's Angels mode.                                     |
    |-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
    | Insane Mode is a new harder difficulty that has been added to the game. A   |
    | second new game mode, Director's Commentary, was also added that includes   |
    | small icons in select locations that feature commentary from the minds who  |
    | came up with the insanity in Cthulhu Saves the World.                       |
    |-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
    | Penny Arcade receives a cameo of some kind as a hint to future productions. |
    | Apparently it involves Robert Khoo, but I have not been able to find any    |
    | more information on it than that.                                           |
    |-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
    | Sara from Breath of Death VII also appears, replacing Dem in the Cave of    |
    | Destiny in Cthulhu's Angels mode. She is also recruitable once you defeat   |
    | her.                                                                        |
    |-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
    | Soulcaster Cavern is a new dungeon located on an island far to the north of |
    | the continent. There are a few new bosses in this dungeon to contend with   |
    | and it is intended to be harder than the fight in Cave of Destiny.          |
