Mnemosius - A very odd, delightful game of words and story
The clue’s in the name. You’re playing a cultist, but less of the chanting and murder aesthetic and more of the slightly maddened researcher uncovering the hidden truths behind the world... and learning to use them. The mythos is incredible and built from the ground up in a way that delights readers, but feels fresh and new and almost obsessive to learn more about due to how carefully it’s been constructed.
Make no mistake that this is a card game and there is plate spinning involved, and a lot of trial and error. But it’s very cool that that kind of mirrors the experience of being a cultist - you don’t know what you’re doing, and you’re dying, and then, all of a sudden, there is the euphoria of a breakthrough. I’m a big fan.
I would definitely recommend this game if you have good headphones and an overactive imagination. It’s words on a page and a sense of figuring out things as you place down your cards in different tiles and use reading comprehension and a very... odd sense of logic, to figure out what might just happen. You make the story happen in your mind, but this game provides the encouragement to make it something magical.
Djdixhdnjakakdoekenjririfj - Fascinating; addictive
To put it simply, if you like managing multiple nodes at the same time to survive (like in mini Metro), you will like this game. If you like finding secrets, exploring new paths, delving into mysteries... you will like this game.
I haven’t been this hooked in a long, long time. I was apprehensive of the lack of tutorial warning, since the last game I tried warned of the same thing and I was too confused to understand and enjoy. For this game, the confusion is purposeful. The basics are obvious, so you can hop right in. Click and drag: that’s it. You click and drag the card to the square. There’s even a manual to explain (which made me wonder about the no-tutorial thing but whatever).
What’s confusing is how to survive; how to balance the different elements so you don’t perish; and what elements unlock new things. And that’s the purpose of the game; to discover those things. Easy to learn, hard to master and all of that jazz. The mechanics fit brilliantly. You don’t grind for unlocks but you won’t go through any one play through where you haven’t discovered another cool thing to explore — and another way to die. But since you are constantly progressing, death is insignificant, not annoying. It’s a progression game done right.
Not to mention, the atmosphere, sound effects, music, writing and style blend together seamlessly. In fact, the writing is lyrical and brilliant. No easy sentences or rough translation here. I have yet to encounter any bugs.
Mazricoth - Great game, and great port.
Extremely great game, whether you’re looking to pass the time or delve into lovecraftianesque lore. No tutorial, and little explanation past the initial actions (which is an intentional feature, not an overlooked flaw). Some bugs, but none that are game breaking. A bit of grinding in the mid to late game, though if at any point you slip up you could end up in jail, or find yourself wasting away from despair or going insane.
Almost exactly the same as the computer version. My main complaint is that the table is noticeably smaller, leaving much less room for the dozens and hundreds of cards one can collect during a play through. I’ve been able to make it more manageable by reducing the grid snap size to 1/2, but it’s still frustrating at times. I haven’t gotten far enough to see if they have the apostle legacies or the dancer dlc, but the base game is still very much worth the price.
Dubs1 - iCloud sync deleted ALL my progress
Yea...I still love this game, though. Finally beat it and mastering it.
One of my favs for sure.
Edit: like one of the other reviewers has said, you aren’t able to do the ‘Temptation: Change’ aka ‘The Dancer’ storyline/playthrough even though there are hints in the cards when you talk to the specific person and also ‘The Dancer’ achievements are shown as available in Game Center. I have contacted the devs who said they will get back to me (much appreciate for quick response) and they think the dlc wasn’t added to iOS...again, weird since the conversation texts are in the game and the achievements are too: but it refuses to let you speak to a certain person at the club. Hopefully devs will fix/add this ASAP! If anyone else is having this issue be sure to request as well so we can continue our crazy cult fun!
Bill Light IV - Solitaire with a side of mysticism
Cultist simulator is a frantic pursuit of eldritch power in a dystopian state.
You can win a minor victory without ever dipping more than a toe into the dreaming world of the Mansus. You don’t have to sacrifice life to become an immortal.
Cultist simulator is interesting because if you fail, you have only yourself to blame. The game consists of using cards you draw with “actions” that consume them. The results have an element of randomness, but if you carefully observe the possible results of your actions the randomness is highly controllable. Each of the “game over” threats have a “three strikes, you’re out” rule to them. If you get a strike, you can avoid generating more if you pay attention, and focus on generating a card to clear the threat.
You will lose because you will get wrapped up in figuring out the next step in becoming more powerful, and miss a failure condition generating out of control.
This game is about keeping managed control as you delve deeper into a richly written world of otherworldly knowledge. It feels great, and let’s you empathize with what it’s like to descend further into questionable choices as you pursue power.
Play it. It’s worth the cost. You can win a minor victory without ever becoming a magical demigod. But where is the fun in that?
seal5000 - A creative and confusing game
I rate this 5 stars because it’s a fun game and it’s so cool to learn I don’t suggest learning by using wiki or other things getting help from a freind is fine don’t let them tell you too much tho but this game is definitely confusing but for ones that have a bit of patience and are interested in a unique experience each time this is the game for you this isn’t a fast paced game or anything like that please do not be wavered to buy this great game by some of the bad reviews if you think you would like it you most likely will most of the people that didn’t probably didn’t take the time to understand this game so I implore you to also buy this game if it looks of something that fits your interest or if it doesn’t you can always try something new 🤷♂️
Akopian - Can You Really Understand?
When your shadow's eyes look back at you with the light of stars, you will begin to comprehend this game. Victory means you must surrender to the control exerted by the entities in the inner space of your ipad compelling you to slide your finger just so, apply pressure there, and then timing everything just wrong so that you may fall into their victory.
Learning curve is intentional. Do not look up on the internet how to play, where is the fun in that? Just keep trying different things. Also, I paused every time anything happened. Big button is there for a reason; otherwise you cannot read what is going on.
If you are trying for something completely mindless, do not like discovering your own way, and find experimentaionnirritating, then the game is not for you,
Beach Crow - A truly special game
I do not usually write reviews but I have to say, this is just great. Great atmosphere and world, and the puzzle presented is just my kind of thing. Two things I will say though, if you like clear rules this is not the game for you as all the fun is figuring out how to play and advance, and I would like it if at some point you guys (aimed at the developers) would add in an option to restart the... I don’t know “level” or the next step after you win the first game or whatever you like to call it as it gets old going through the same motions to get to the next part again and again. Honestly I wouldn’t be surprised if I’m missing something because I can see literally no other mistakes. May the great mother embrace you developers.
lmichaela94 - Good port, def worth the price; needs tweaks
I really enjoy this game and I love that it’s on a more portable platform. The game itself is challenging & puts my multitasking to the test (which, for someone with ADHD like me, is wonderful).
There are a few things that keep me from giving all five stars:
• sometimes sickness or despair drag cards off to the side, out of my view, no matter how many times I move them back into my playing field. When they reappear, they go out of my view. I wish that it would stay in my field of view (ideal) or (if it can’t) at least maybe do a small pulsing glow on the edge of the screen to remind me like “hey this is here btw”
• no DLC characters — I wish we could have the DLC Characters of Dancer, Priest, and Ghoul. Steam does them as separate purchases, so this listing could do that too. Heck, even the same price as the steam listing. We already got the base game on iOS for much cheaper than we would on Steam.
ykaz96 - Amazing Game, Great Port
april 15. purchased a new, bigger table from oriflamme's. it's easier to plan my next moves.
the bureau was on my case, he said. something about indiscretion. looking for a man asking around for a table to perfectly arrange his mysteries unceasing, complaining of an awful stench from luminous fluids mixing together. it's true. they fell into each other. it's a smell you can't get out of your eyes for days.
well, try to find me now: everything's neat and organized, all my inventory is in order. i know exactly where and how to strike back. i reach towards my papers, reach into the granary of truth, reach under the skin of the world...
everything is laid out perfectly on this table.
order prevails. the maid does, too.
Skyskape - Addictive Frustration
Imagine being blindfolded in a large, dark room with a bunch of randomly placed furniture and told you have 60 seconds to get across without bumping into anything. If you bump into something, you fail. And if you don’t make it across, the game ends. If that doesn’t sound like a fun game to you, this app isn’t for you.
While it’s interesting to learn by trial and error what works and what doesn’t, it gets terribly frustrating the number of ways you can die, and how quickly. You are constantly trying to put out multiple slow, creeping fires while at the same time trying to figure out what the whole point of the game is. Not exactly fun, but the frustration of wanting to solve this incredibly intricate moving puzzle is pretty addictive. Wish they had a free version as I likely wouldn’t have paid for it.
Szei - Potential... but boring grinding
I don’t understand the glowing reviews.
Have played for 8 hours and haven’t died yet nor have I beaten the game. The beginning was interesting as I was discovering a lot of new things. However the past few hours I’ve just been grinding to upgrade everything and it’s getting really boring.
Maybe I’m just playing the game wrong... but I encountered a scenario I was clearly unprepared for so I decided I better slow down on the exploration a bit to actually recruit followers and level up skills.
I guess I’m probably ready for the next challenge now that I’ve spent a few more hours grinding my upgrades but the problem is you never know if you will encounter something difficult that you should have prepared more for. And at this point I would just quit if I died and lost my last 8 hours of progress...
But other people seem to be dying all the time and having fun with it. I don’t know. Seems like it would be a huge slog to rebuild my cult.
tldr; the exploration is where this game shines, but once you understand how certain systems work there is a lot of repetition in the progression of recruiting, leveling up skills/lore etc. I wish I could bypass the busywork and just focus on exploring new things.
glofiejeid - I jumped into this game with high hopes but was disappointed
Where to start... I downloaded this being very intrigued by the premise to be disappointed. Let me start by saying that the writing is excellent as is the art, but the gameplay left me very disappointed. For one thing you face 3 main challenges throughout the span of the game (maybe more I haven’t gotten very far), dread, visions, and investigators. The problem is you never face anything other than these three and you only become very slightly better at countering them. Another problem is the difficulty, there is no way to change the level of difficulty meaning if you are bad at the game you can either use trial and error until the game becomes boring and repetitive or look up online guides and drain the fun out of it. It’s almost impossible to progress without outside help due to the lack of instruction. Overall a disappointment on my part
ALittleLeaf - What An Incredible Game
Now I’ve never been one for playing card-based games, nor writing reviews, but here I have found myself writing this after playing this particular game for hours, waiting on edge for every next move I make. You start the game a bit lost, figuring out just how to play along the way, discovering the detailed and enthralling lore behind it and just how to rise in a new and mysterious world.
In short, I love this game. It’s captivating and insanely full of compelling storylines. The more you okay, the more you discover, and the more you realize you haven’t even begun to scratch the surface of the depth this game offers. 10/10, would eternally recommend!
jkeitz - Keep Waiting for the “There” There
I’ve played this over and over, after waiting for its release, and I’m pretty much done. It looks like a deep strategy game with an interesting narrative, but all it boils down to is desperately placing cards wherever it will let you, hoping something reveals itself. Aside from the meh quality of the gameplay, there are some design flaws that make it worse. For one thing, cards and destinations (or whatever you call the places you put the cards) often spawn offscreen with no indication that anything has happened. For another, while you need money, it stops flowing after a couple of turns. So, you still go to work, but you no longer get paid. Then you get sick and cannot do anything about it...
They should have called it “Live, Die, Repeat,” but then people might confuse it with the far more exciting atom Cruise movie.
Dissapointed Dude - An Instant Cult Classic
Been playing for a long time and am glad to see they are finally releasing the DLCs on mobile! I’m loving them so far and for the price they are more than worth it. If you haven’t played it it’s a very unique time and resource management card game with very interesting flavor text and lore based around managing different kinds of cults and gaining magical knowledge and power. If you think any of that sounds cool, check. It. Out.
P.s. I wish Weather Factory a speedy release of Book Of Hours (new game in development based in the same universe) and would like to remind them they have fans on mobile that can’t wait to get their hands on it.
Hugh G. Butte - Impossibly odd, utterly enjoyable
I was dubious about a digital card game; but a friend insisted I try it, and I’m very glad they did. This game is beautiful; this game is frustrating. This game is terrifying, sad, quixotic, mirthful, and ultimately, mesmerizing. You don’t just play this game, you explore it. And although feeling out the rules might seem like a devilish proposition at first, you quickly realize that the act of discovery is a vital part of this game’s magic. You delve into the rules like your character delves into the occult, pulling you right along with them and playing with your expectations and emotions in ways you didn’t think possible. I can’t recommend this game enoug.
jthile - Perfect Marriage of Theme with Gameplay
There are many things to love about this game, but I want to call out its perfect ludo-narrative harmony.
After a few hours of slowly building complexity, no step too intimidating or too sudden, you’ll zoom out and realize you’ve assembled the cards which represent your cult and your knowledge of the occult into a crazy conspiracy board of patterns which only make sense to you.
Nothing feels out of place in this game.
Brainless Consumer - Great game, pain in the AS$ moving system
The game is great, with many challenging and well thought ideas however, moving cards is an annoyance. For example, I have 83 funds, I accidentally split the pile by mistake. No worries, I’ll just move the pile back. I wish it was that simple but every time I do it the pile just splits up again. If there was a way were you could just hold down on a card and it’ll take ALL copies of that said card for you to freely distribute and move them around, I’d give this game a 5 star.
manusyadrew - Read a lot of books. Maybe shed your skin.
A “card” game where you build a group of followers and maybe send them towards really horrible fates. The gameplay and music is oddly calming, like a still library unbothered by the sound of nails scratching on the other side of the mirror. The writing is beautiful, and is a truer homage to weird 1920s fantasy than a lot of the “Lovecraftian” games out there where you shoot at a giant squid or something.
Gimmelston - Wasted potential
I bought this game because I loved the writing and world-building of Fallen London, but I’m very disappointed. The interface, music, and writing are wonderful, but due to timers constantly draining your health and money (and causing sickness or other maladies), playing this game is a rushed, stressful experience. You don’t have time to read carefully, think about the story, or explore different possibilities. I would love to linger in this world and learn more about its characters and secrets, but the game design prevents that. I don’t recommend this game at all. I’m sorely disappointed and regret purchasing it.
brightlights11111 - Great Game, Sound doesn’t work
I love this game, I played it a lot before on PC so I bought it release day on the App Store. However, the sound isn’t working for me in game. Other reviews haven’t mentioned this so I thought it was my problem. However I tried restarting my phone, restarting the app, nothing helped. I am using an IPhoneXs if it helps. I would rate this 5 stars if the sound works.
[Edit] The sounds works now
Discord 137382947 - Wow
I have been searching for a game to scratch the occult itch that I’ve have for far too long and this game nailed it. No tutorial but an amazing community of people willing to help and point you In The right way. The mysterious nature tagged with the multiple endings and explore on your own and risk takings that you have to do, this game is amazing and you can bet I’ll be buying any and all dlc for this game to dabble in the occult mysteries
Anon555765 - Difficult at first, but great game
The game is very hard at first. You aren’t taught what resources do what, you don’t know how cards will interact, you will probably starve.
Don’t worry about winning at first, you won’t even get close. Focus on learning what cards do what. Also don’t assume there’s only a single option for something or you’ll probably overlook alternative options and get stuck.
AaMaxLew - Great game...requires patience!
With no tutorial and no clue what to do, your first character (or 3) will quickly succumb to...something. But new characters will build on the deeds of previous characters, and once you start to figure out the mechanics, there’s a cool game hidden underneath. There are still concepts I haven’t figured out yet, but piecing together the mechanics is part of the game itself, and successes feel earned.
Possesed Aerosol Can - All the one star reviews are whiny babies
I wondered why this great game wasn’t at five stars, then I saw why. All of these one star reviews were people who have never played a game that isn't handholding and action packed. The game makes it very clear in the store page that it is A: a card based game B: a game that you have to experiment with to learn it. These reviews are unfair. It is a wonderful game.
Mystrunner - If Dark Souls and Lovecraft’s Library Had A Baby
It’s hard. Merciless. You will go mad, starve to death, or simply waste away. You might get eaten because you agreed to a deal you didn’t understand. But you’ll learn. Oh, you’ll learn, and as you do, you will progress. Each iteration of curious aspirant will probe deeper and deeper beneath the skin of the world, past hoary sinew and esoteric flesh, into the heart of What is True.
Dante Rising - Beautiful, Mysterious, Thoughtful
It is best to go into this game without reading any walkthroughs. The sense of mystery and exploration will pay dividends. Be patient, and see how far down the rabbit hole you can go. The only negative I see is that the developer has not made any of the wonderful DLC from the PC version available, nor do I know if they have intentions of releasing it.
Erikharrison - Brilliant, challenging, bizarre
Really excellent mobile port of a groundbreaking game. If you already know the game, I’ll say it plays beautifully on the phone and frankly feels like it belongs there better than PC.
If you don’t know the game - woof. It’s an addictive phone puzzler, a brutally difficult resource management sim, and a masterwork of interactive fiction.
The thing is practically it’s own genre.
minersmoon - Great Game!
I love this game, and I’m happy I bought it. My only complaint is that even at its’ largest, the text still is a bit too small to comfortably read. Other than that (minor) issue, I’ve been completely satisfied. 9/10 personally, but if you can read smaller text it’s definitely a 10!
Gmantanker - Incredibly fun though hard to get into
This game is incredibly fun! The varitety or options and paths you can stumble upon is mind boggling. Though I’ve had a great time with this game I have to say getting into it took some time. Their really isn’t much of a tutorial o how to play and everything is very confusing. Lots of different factors and mechanics that aren’t really explained at all.
Hdjsheif - Favorite game
I usually don’t even receive games but this one is definite worth it. I’ve played through 20 times and still haven’t won but each time I lose I simply groan a bit before smiling and pressing new game. Without a doubt the best game I have on my phone and truly the best game I’ve ever played
Faust III - An awesome game!
This game offers hours of engagement, and really makes you feel like you’re building a cult from the ground up to become a figure of unearthly power.
My only gripes are that in the later game, caves can really slow you down, and there are some glitches with Sulochana. For instance, the game says I should be able to use her to gain entrance to the club, but it never starts.
RauLaCrueset - This game is phenomenal
I bought this game because I played it endlessly on pc. Much like sunless sea this game works really well on handheld devices. Although because the scale this game can get with your table full of cards in later more major victory paths I’d recommend playing this on iPad or pausing a lot to read each card.
chovysalts - Indoctrinated
Such a clever game. Been at this for a year, and I’m still discovering hidden wrinkles that I didn’t see before. Takes a while to master, but the power you’ll wield over the game as an adept makes all those trials and tribulations pay off. Can’t wait for Book of Hours.
Nosfar - Cool concept but very complicated
I generally think I’m a pretty intelligent person but this game made me doubt that. I wanted to love it. The concept is very cool, but after hours of experimenting and two games lost, I find myself generally frustrated, confused, and not able to make a lot of progress. I wanted to enjoy the “discovery” part of playing this but I may have to seek out a guide to see if I can mine some more fun from it.
Familyperez - Temptation: change?
I’ve been trying for a while to get temptation change by taking sulochana as entry to the club, but the button is grayed out every time. Am I missing something or is something wrong? Would appreciate help. Besides that the game is absolutely fantastic
Snide rupture - Amazing experience
This is a great game - for any platform. I’d pay for a large expansion including new professions, etc. I know there’s still much more to explore and I’m still getting the hang of it, but I can tell this game is worth it. The style, the writing, the immersion and unique play mechanic... I want more. This is excellent.
Jochoywl - All the fun of the occult at your finger tips
I was already a huge fan of the game on the PC release and I’m in awe that they’ve been able to make the whole show portable. It feels like the surface area you get to work with is a bit more restricted, but it’s still an amazing, fully fleshed out game.
Thisnamewas taken - What a game!
You know when you get a new video game and you skip the tutorial to figure out how to play on your own?
This is the card version of that.
Fun and inventive game, with the reward in exploring all your options. Do recommend.
Rick-Illz - Just Not For Me
I just played this game for like two hours and I’m so confused about what’s going on. I know that’s a main component of this game, and they warn you of this way in advance, but I really can’t seem to get the handle of it, and I can only handle disorder and misunderstanding in my gaming for so long. I’m just not getting it fast enough for my tastes. This isn’t a bad game, it’s just not for me.
Mulraven - Great game
I have been waiting for a long time. Although it is a niche game, I have heard many people enjoy it. Apparently that even includes Valve’s Gabe Newell. I am playing on iPhone XR and although I may enjoy it more on an iPad, it is definitely playable.
Kliev - Not for me
I can see how this would appeal to some, but to me being a cultist is apparently really tedious and confusing. There is some logic to the things you can do, but be prepared to try a lot of seemingly random combinations of things to figure out what works. If “try a lot of seemingly random combinations” sounds like exciting exploration to you, go for it.
fluffywhitebunny - Pretty fantastic
Great writing, and its a lot of fun discovering new things. Its kinda hard to remember what everything does but im sure ill figure it out. The text and cards are all a bit small on an iphone, Id enjoy a few extra qol tools for that. Overall, really happy with it.
Ry7n_ - The UI gets in the way
This game has some delightful writing and neat mechanics. Unfortunately it uses a 3D table metaphor that hides important information and makes dragging things around frustrating. It’s also very hard, and after dying to the same mechanic four times In a row with no clear way to avoid it and no meaningful progress, I just didn’t feel up to keep trying.
Zipper man140 - Great game.
It’s a little more clunky than it is on the pc and there is less table space since the cards are bigger but I would consider a worthwhile trade off for convenience.
BML242 - I never write reviews
But this game is the best I’ve ever played on mobile. My hand is a cramped claw right now from holding my iPhone sideways for 3 straight days playing this. Buy it!
kobet_ - Beautifully Deep
Cultist Simulator, simply put, is a beautifully deep game. I’ve probably put 15 hours into this game and I still feel like I’ve barely scratched the surface of what you can do in the game.
wahmetapul - A choose your own adventure
A really unique choose your own adventure game. This isn’t a card game really at all it’s very interesting and worth the effort.
B1uetrane - Fun at first
Learning the early game mechanics was a lot of fun. But having reached a certain point and peeked at the wiki, I despair (pun intended) of learning all that other stuff on my own, and relying on the wiki would just be So I think it’s time to move on.

Uberschveinen - Ideal platform for a strong game
Cultist Simulator has been reviewed to death everywhere else, and if you want to know what it is you can find that anywhere.
What’s important here is that the mobile release is full-featured, fully functional, and feels like it was always the way it was meant to be played. The timer-based nature of the game makes it eminently suitable for short sessions, while the relative obscurity of even the most basic gameplay suits well when you have your phone and time to use. Text size is hard to optimise but even on the smallest iPhone available it was not a serious problem for me.
Rana Newlove - I have my fire, my books, my clock, my window on the world where they do other things.
This game was always going to port well to tablets, but there has been a couple of extra quality of life improvements that make the transition just a little easier. Cultist Simulator, honestly, is a lot more suited to relaxing on a sofa or in a bed (as you would with a book) than it is to a cramped computer desk, and this might end up being my preferred platform in the future.
Akaiyami - Isn’t that so true to the PC version
I love Cultist Simulator, honestly. But a few changes here and there bumped me out a lot. Such cases are you can't go and explore Fleeting Reminiscent. It might be a bug, who knows.
sboxle - Polished
It is (as warned) very hard to understand, as everything’s so obscure.
I wish opening a square ritual thing would highlight which cards can go there.
I find myself opening a square and trying to start a complex ritual by just briefly holding each card I have to see if it highlights a slot... most of my game is doing this because all the concepts are so abstract.
BTDubDubbs - Pretty good.
It's a god, fun puzzle game that made me feel one with the occult.
tovewabe - Fantastic
ShaunyBe - Give it a try
A unique but potentially confusing game.
n0v4_ - No sound?
Bug: no sound or music whatsoever.

Taleeha - Great game
And also, not every pc ported games are supported continuously like this game. Great game ported by great company
Olikoth - Absolutely amazing
I first saw this on first release on pc and dusted it off as one of those simplistic money grabs.
Then it began to haunt me as it slowly began to pop up here and there in conversation.
Then finally I had to sip from the cup and try it myself.
I have died. Slip into the abyss and hunted by the unspeakable.
This game is a gem and I say you must try it. It is anything but a simple game. This is a treasure.
Belijum - Masterful. Evocative. Unforgiving.
This game does not reveal its secrets to all. But to the worthy, the Mansus gives generously.
Do not mistake the Mansus’ generosity for kindness.
bletzo - More like this please!
What a cool, mysterious, intriguing game! I must admit I was frustrated at first not knowing what was going on but thats part of the beauty of it, the writing is so interesting and you do slowly start understanding how the game works. Like a great mystery novel that keeps you guessing all the way through, Cultist Simulator is one of the best games on the app store and 1000000 bonus points to the devs for not ruining it in a ‘pay to play’ way. Classic stuff, keep the dlc coming and please make more games like this!
Ijipop - Amazing game!!!
It is hard.
It won’t hold your hand.
But discovering everything is SOOOO rewarding.
This is a gem.
You can’t compare this to anything.
It really is a beast of it’s own.
I just can’t put it down!
clpoihjpg - Won’t hold your hand
For those who keep on complaining about the game being “impossible,” I’ve got your one stop solution:
Paint. That’s it.
Black Screan After Loading - Unable to load game
The game is really amazing, but after a few weeks of playing, the game would not open properly. Now whenever it loads, it remains a black screen with background music where the home screen of the game once was.
I have deleted and redownloaded the game a few times, but the problem still persists.
I do not know what to do and would greatly appreciate this bug getting fixed or being instructed how to on my end.
marinaaaaaa - I LOVE this game, BUT....
It is SO difficult to get health. Like, I can’t even count on 1 hand how many times I’ve died from having no health, and I’ve only been playing this game for a few hours. Please do something about that lol
Yougotthewrongguy - Title
How do I play
megacomputer - Great Port
Plays 99％ as similar as the PC version！I would recommend！
uMuffin - Interface poorly implemented
Stuff gets spread out all over the table, it becomes a mess quickly. I want to play a cards game, not a manage your card table game!
Bejeweler - You can eat people, or get a job as a clerk
Also you can starve to death on the streets or go insane and die or go to jail or get transfigured and ascend into some kind of demented quasi-Lovecraftian godhood. It’s also kind of like Solitaire if Solitaire had a zillion weird cards with little timers on them and some of the cards were called things like Moth or Reason or The Policeman Locked In Your Cupboard.
ganlaw - Great game
Amazing port of a really great game. Have been waiting for this game for a long time
Thatcutenerdgirl - Impossible
This game is impossible. There’s no instruction. It’s confusing, stressful, and boring.

Whatshisname333 - Lovely card puzzle
Do you enjoy card games? Do you enjoy stories? Do you like challenging puzzles? If you say yes to all of these then you will enjoy this game.
Mike Aboud - Will it be in Spanish any time??
I downloaded it since day one but Even tho i speak english a little bit it’s hard to understand in english every word we need spanish please 🙏
rothscorn - Truly engrossing and original
You will not regret spending a dime on this simple yet maddeningly complex game. Like life it is multifaceted; in turns beautiful and dreadful, stressful and illuminating; humorous and grim. Support these ingenious game writers and developers.
Premium price - Slow and Odd Game (also very slow). Did I mention it was slow?
The is an unusual game that is hard to describe or understand. Basically you drag cards around and wait for timers, which is not that fun or compelling (for me).
Good news, no IAP.
TamOcello - A Librarian's Secret
A Lantern to light the door.
A seven-fold Knock to open the way.
A single Moth, drawn to the flame, unknowing, scorching itself upon the pyre of knowledge until it learns to fly in the shadows and court a long, gossamer-threaded life of study and profane ritual.
Malice1998 - Good game however
I’d like to see a untimed mode so I can sit and enjoy working through it, when I play it’s a very fast paced trying to figure out whatever’s going on.
RazdByBears - Great concept, horrible execution
I want to love this game. Card-based mechanics? Check. Roguelike progression? Check. Lovecraftian horror setting? Check!
I ought to love it. But instead of feeling like I’m being drawn into a fascinating story, instead I feel like I’m battling a terribad interface, and game balance that feels like it was tailored to Adderol addicts.
If you love outré horror do yourself a favor and look elsewhere.
devilstrand - Do you enjoy trial and error?
Lots of trial and error, which I don’t like. I enjoy puzzle games that are intuitive and solvable through inference and deduction. This game requires lots of note taking just to figure out the mechanics. Not my thing.
Exosept - Not fun
If you like games with clear rules avoid this one like the plague. This not a light game. The atmosphere is heavy, creepy, and unnerving thanks to multiple timers that create a feeling of rush towards an unavoidable end to disciples of Chutulhu. I was once again persuaded to purchase by rave reviews from online publications... But it’s not a fun game. I didn’t even finish the first game I started...
Law stud - Strategic card game
Long and intricate card game with many strategic decisions and outcomes. Or spent 20-30 hours playing and still have not beaten the game. Fun and absorbing.
Justaguyyoudontknow - Rare Fusion
The game takes a lot of elements I enjoy about the macabre, the occult, and the outright unusual and weaves them all into one amazing narrative card based puzzle. What’s not to love?
saelincier - Plays well on iPhone SE
Especially with the recent UI scaling increase, it still plays great on an iPhone SE - one of the best games on mobile yet
Farlin Paulino - Unique
I don’t even know what I’m doing, but it’s such a different game that I’m giving it a go (or two, or three) already.
rrocket91 - 🥰
Amazing game I still haven’t fully figured out how to play but I’m having a great time learning..
Gsanta1 - Great game but long.
Great game! I love it, but I can’t play it much anymore. After failing many many time I finally got a good game going and, after spending a few days on it, I don’t want to ruin it and start over again.
WillowEve12 - Best simulation of being a cultist
Obtuse, frustrating, immersive, and brilliant. Best time hermetic starving mad for the asking price or many times it. Pithy, punchy text wrapped around a great lore.
Randal Humberg - Add DLC please
About as good a review as you can get, I guess, if I’m just sitting here wanting more options.
T3RRITORY - Amazing
Incredibly fun. Make sure to read all the hints to understanding what is going on!
A concerned individual - Fantastic game
Amazing experience, hoping the Dancer/Priest/other DLCs make it to mobile
Sichuan Express - Good game
Neat game except for a little lack of instructions especially on glory screen and sometimes don’t know how I died.
regretful commentator - Not even the devs know how to play
This game is trash. No tutorial when one is absolutely necessary. Things start disappearing before you even know what’s happening, no way to determine how to link cards, or what they mean. What an absolute waste of money.
ohsnapitsaustin - Great game, but text is a bit small
Really interesting game, but text is a bit small, even with UI scaled up.
LittelRaven - Incredibly engrossing
Fantastic writing and simple mechanics make for a first rate game.
kraqb - Love this game but
This game is very difficult I always die of health I can’t even get to the part of starting a cult
Juanchin1516 - Cool,need translation
Pretty good, just need a Spanish translation pls :)
Project Fey - No instructions breeds frustration
Some people like repeatedly failing and trying again. I personally would have appreciated SOME guidance
JPJNCs - Imagination skin doesn’t spawn
And yes I merged two glimmerings. I spent a long time learning how to play and now there is this problem
mehrdad4747 - Toturial
The game is awsome but please bring the toruria becuse the game is confusing at the first moments
Freakazoidjake - One of my favorite games.
Eerie, melancholy and otherworldly.
Csjern3 - Very good game
Just stick with it it’s great
Dalemark7 - Maybe you got stuck here too...
For Devs: Not a rant! Actionable feedback at end! I love this Game. It’s delightful, mesmerizing, dynamic, and I’ve loved getting to know it. However, why oh why couldn’t they have added a teeny bit more guidance?? I understand that experimenting is fun, and it was delightfully so.... for the first 8 hours... but frustration set in firmly when I was grinding to a halt doing the same things over again and not progressing. Finally, I looked online for guidance and eventually found the key piece of information: The Way cards must be Dreamed. I had been missing a key game mechanic of the Mansus which is unlocked by this simple action. Maybe you got stuck here too... Would it have killed you to give a little bit more guidance devs? In regards to the basic mechanics, not the lore. The in game guide reads like a calculus textbook and is basically useless. This, combined with a lack of key time-saving touch swipes for iPad are why I give this 3 stars. Having to move each individual fund in a pile of 30 is a real drag, same with groups of cards. Want to move all your Notoriety cards to a different part of the board? One at a time my friend. Long hold over a card and allows you to move them in groups? Like using shift select on a PC. Just an idea. It would be nice to double tap to quickly close verb actions when they are finished: a real pain to find the “Collect cards” button every single time. And finally, Card text/info boxes should be closable by tapping anywhere on screen, also a pain to have to find the exact “x” every time I want to investigate a card, which, due to experimentation, happens A LOT. But bravo for creating a complex, fascinating game. I’ll still play it, even though I’ve had these issues, and that’s saying something!
Talon Wolfe - Waste of money and time
All the reviews that make this sound like a great game with an intriguing narrative... are all lies. This is a card game. That’s all you see, cards on a table.
pauzuzu - Glorious game
You will Long for it!
1048334343434 - Why can’t I cancel an expedition
I got soft locked when I didn’t know you needed a lock aspect to open doors and I couldn’t cancel my expedition
Slaughtered Cow - Waste of money.
I wish I had read the negative reviews first! I can’t help but wonder how this "game" received so many positive reviews.
Durka stan - Wow
Totes good, would be corrupted again.
Lemneskata - Super cool!
If it will be possible please add Russian language :)
Ads chipotle - A gem
The writing does not fail to impress. The madness! The desire! Cultist Simulator is good fun.
Qwertyasdfgbhunjimko - Fun
Fun to learn how to play
darius sohei - DLC characters please!!!
The base game just isn’t that great without them...
Master P C - Obnoxious
After paying money for the app, it constantly barrages you with requests to rate the app. Okay, here’s your rating.
FlyinFungi - Stop
Don’t ask me for reviews I gave you money and it’s interrupting
Duke DemonKnight - Desperately needs an ACTUAL “turn off auto save”
First off, the good: this is truly a lovely and fascinating game, with a lot of attention to detail. Even though I used a wiki a little more than I probably should have, I thoroughly enjoyed the lore, figuring out how to advance, and the way it oozes atmosphere. I’m proud to say I beat the game on my second attempt, and it only took me... about two solid days of play-through in all my free time. XD
HOWEVER... That being said, this game *desperately* needs to give you the ability to revert to a previous save file. I get that’s a little at odds with the nature of what you’re trying to create here, and I would have no problem at all if that was an option that was only unlockable after, perhaps, beating the game once with a standard victory or something along those lines.
The bottom line is that, I get that you’re creating finely and elaborately balanced systems, and the challenge of the gameplay is to find ways to advance without sending those systems spiraling rapidly into chaos. But once you have unveiled the basic mechanics of the game, it is flat out ANNOYING to invest one or two hours into leveling up your character properly, acquiring texts, meeting acquaintances, etc, only to die to an illness that you didn’t have funds to cure in time, dread that double stacked on you when you didn’t notice you already had one, etc.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, for the love of all that is unholy, add the option for me to revert to a save game. I’m playing this on an iPad, and even though I turn the auto save function to “never,” it automatically saves my progress every time I close the app. And there is no way to go back to the title screen *without saving*.
This just boils down to quickly feeling like unfriendly UI, if you honestly want my two cents. I’ll update this to a five star review if you ever give me that option. Sorry to be a thug, but there it is. Thanks for the lovely game.
t o n y . q - Keeps asking for a review
This app keeps pestering me for a review. It’s pretty expensive for pesterware.

What kind of sick fuck thinks Cultist Simulator is fun?
Boy howdy, I sure do love watching things happen with no agency whatsoever.
