Musashi vs Cthulhu from QUByte Interactive and Cyber Rhino Studios is an arcade-style game with a Lovecraft twist. Check out our Musashi vs Cthulhu review!

 

Musashi vs Cthulhu from QUByte Interactive and Cyber Rhino Studios is an arcade-style game with a Lovecraft twist. It’s a fast-paced experience in which you’ll have to react quickly to attack the monsters inspired by the work of H.P. Lovecraft and the beloved Cthulhu. You’ll be taking on the role of Musashi, the most famous warrior from feudal Japan, as you try to find a way to defeat the many different monsters that are out for blood. Musashi has been cursed and must defeat the seemingly endless horde of monsters that attack from both sides of the screen.

You’ll take control of Musashi right away as monsters start to attack you. You can attack enemies on the right side of the screen with the Circle button. Enemies on the left side of the screen can be attacked by pressing left on the D-Pad. Every enemy you face will have a weak spot, so you better pay attention! You must target the red pustules, which are located either on the top, middle, or bottom of each enemy. You can target them by pressing down or up on the D-Pad for enemies on the left side or the X and Triangle buttons for enemies on the right side.

 

When hit, Musashi will receive some damage, and he’ll use his spirit energy to push enemies away for an instant so that you can catch your breath. By defeating enemies, you’ll start to fill up your Spirit Lantern. You can also fill it up by timing your moves and taunting with the Square button. Once your lantern is full, you’ll be protected from one mistake. Do know that every time you use the Spirit Lantern, it will take longer to refill.

Things will start off easy enough, with humanoid monsters and flying and crawling insects that only require a single hit to be defeated. You’ll soon run into larger enemies that need to be hit twice to kill them. After that, the aforementioned humanoid monsters will start to have two pustules for you to destroy. You’ll then run into enemies that teleport behind you after you try to slash them. And once you have to fight the hounds that teleport into battle through a portal… you’ll be in trouble!

 

Trophy-wise, the game has a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy waiting for you. The list is split into 11 Bronze trophies, 11 Silver trophies, and 6 Gold trophies for you to work on. The objectives to complete include reaching 50, 100, 250, 600, and 1,000 points in a run, defeating 150, 700, and 2,000 Cultists, killing 50, 250, and 500 magots, and killing 150 and 300 enemies without being hit or missing an attack. It’s not going to be an easy trophy run, so you’ll need to have a bit of patience as you get “in the zone.”

Musashi vs Cthulhu is an arcade-style game with a Lovecraft twist. As Musashi, you’ll have to react quickly to attack the monsters inspired by the work of H.P. Lovecraft and the beloved Cthulhu. Monsters will attack from each side of the screen, and you’ll need to press the right buttons to attack them as fast as possible without making mistakes. Attack too early, and you’ll leave yourself open to an attack. Attack too late or press the wrong button, and you’ll be damaged. Musashi vs Cthulhu is out on PlayStation 4 with a $4.99 price tag.
