    "Alone in The Dark is updated for mobile. It is a game that tackles a Lovecraft based story that will surely captivate you."

    "HP Lovecraft games aren't exactly easy to come by, especially with any real quality. I was pleasantly surprised when I came across Cthulu Virtual Pet. However, I've noticed that the game lacks depth, and I get quickly bored with it. While it's a great novelty for a short time, it doesn't have the immersive depth that is required to hold my attention, and therefore I cannot rate it as highly."

    "I run a board game cafe and our patrons are and interesting and diverse lot of people. We have one group who come in who also participate in a Lovecraft book club. They also like to dress up as well. When I saw this game I knew it was the right one for them. Its quite good as its a cooperative game so they can compete against the game rather than each other(you don't want to see them during Monopoly games). Is it like Lovecraft who can say(probably someone whose read his work). Do people enjoy it and have fun with it (yes) so all in all I say its a keeper."

    "I really enjoy this game as it is extremely addictive. I think that in general the game is very well put together for a selling price of ten dollars. It has great features that you can't find in other ten dollar games. The alien invaders reminds me of nazi zombies from Call of Duty. "
