(12/7) patched for some of the possible issues!
Cthulhu is coming!
He just wants to absorb you through his acidic pores! Why humans have such a problem with this, Cthulhu doesn't even know.
Left/Right arrow keys to move.
Spacebar to capture and hideously mutate a human.
R to restart level if you're blowing chow.
You cannot mutate until your power-bar (lower left) is full! The violence of humans fighting your monsters charges the bar!
Cthulhu fhtagn!


Lovecraft would've loved the craft of this...

Ahh, if many of today's young people only realized that before "HP" Stood for Hewlett-Packard, it was also the initials of H.P. Lovecraft, the father of modern Science-Fiction and Horror who wrote the inimitable "Cthulhu Mythos" stories which inspired this little piece of mayhem.
At any rate, it is an intriguing enough premise...however, I believe we may all agree that reading the work of Lovecraft would be far, far more engaging and chilling.
Don't believe me? Do yourselves a favor, and track down a certain short story by Lovecraft entitled "The Rats in the Walls"...Go ahead, I dare you to read it and NOT BE SHAKEN.

Simple Pleasures

I don't have a lot to add to what has already been said ... you've got a great concept here.

This particular comment is beating a dead horse BUT ... I feel it's very valid. If Cthulhu automatically has enough 'strength' in the mortal realm to mutate and brainwash folks, it would make a lot of sense that his powers would grow as the game wore on. I feel that perhaps every 3 levels he gets some new ability. Maybe an electrical shock that drains your charge bar AND damages enemies? Perhaps a power that boosts the speed of your power-bar for a period of time? Like someone suggested, give him the ability to create his own minions.

I enjoyed the game and hope you can make improvements in a sequal or even an update to this version.

Played for hours on END! Loved it simply loved it. I also like how Cthulhu was so un-serious about it xD

Pretty fun, would have got more potential

It was pretty nice. I would have liked something related to "my powers returning" though, like 2-3 features, even if they are small, that are added throughout the game. Like spawning mini creatures that aren't strong, but you don't actually need a human for them. Or upgrading a human you have already mutated, using your power. Would have added a lot to the game, I feel :)
