Q. What are the minimum specs for Call Of Cthulhu
A. Call Of Cthulhu requires a PC with minimum
specifications of P3 500, a 32mb Direct 3D compatible
graphics card and 128mb RAM. The game is designed to
allow users of lower end machines to thoroughly enjoy
the game, while higher end users can take advantage
of some of Call Of Cthulhu's advanced features.
Q. What is the 'Sanity' system?
A. The 'Sanity' system is a representation of
Jack's sanity in the game. This can be unbalanced by
what Jack sees, hears and reads as he explores Innsmouth,
and can be restored through finding areas of sanctuary
or destroying evil creatures. A loss of sanity can be
represented in many ways -- such as hearing mysterious
voices, hallucinating or suffering visual impairments
(double vision and inability to focus).
Q. What is so special about the health system?
A. The health system represents accurately the
physical state of Jack Walters. The health system is
much more advanced than a standard health meter. Jack
can suffer injuries that will genuinely affect the gameplay.
Break a leg and Jack will limp as he walks, wincing
with each footstep. Break an arm and Jack will find
it very hard to shoot accurately. Poison will sap Jack's
stamina, and bleeding wounds must be tended to before
Jack bleeds to death. Even getting wet and staying in
a cold area will see Jack shivering from hypothermia.
Luckily, there are many 1920s medical devices in the
game, each with a real function, and Jack will be able
to make use of these to heal most injuries.
Q. What weapons are in the game?
A. Call Of Cthulhu features a wide array of weapons,
from the basic to the obscure and wonderful. The weapons
of the 1920s are faithfully reproduced in Call Of Cthulhu
and Jack can use such weapons as the Colt Revolver,
the Mauser and the Springfield m1903. In addition to
these, there are also more mystical weapons to be found,
in deep dark places, but we'll leave these for you to
find out about...
Q. What creatures can be found in Call Of Cthulhu?
A. Call Of Cthulhu boasts a wide variety of creatures
and characters -- both hostile and friendly. Creatures
range from the mutated Hybrids, grossly misshapen humans,
to the sinister Deep Ones. Jack will encounter the mysterious
Yithians, fight off hordes of deranged Cultists and
work with a squad of brave Marines. Creatures and characters
are drawn from the rich Cthulhu Mythos.
Q. How many levels are in Call Of Cthulhu?
A. Call Of Cthulhu features 16 levels of action-adventure,
each containing many hours of gameplay. The levels range
in location from a mysterious house atop a Massachussetts
cliff, to the secretive town of Innsmouth, to the horrifying
city of the Deep Ones, before finally culminating in
a great battle at sea.
Q. What will make Call Of Cthulhu replayable?
A. Call Of Cthulhu features a system whereby
players can gain Mythos Points. These reflect a level
of knowledge that Jack has gained and are used to access
bonuses, such as additional information and items. Players
will want to keep playing to keep trying to get all
of the Mythos Points, and uncover the full truth of
the dark history of Cthulhu.
