Headup Games & Goody Gameworks are pleased to announce that retro-inspired side-scrolling city-smasher Gigapocalypse is out today for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, priced at $9.99 / €9.99 / £7.99.
Inspired by Kaiju monster movies like Godzilla and King Kong, as well as classic arcade games like Rampage, Gigapocalypse gives players a roster of monsters, or “Gigas”, to choose from as they reduce cities to rubble to the beat of a pumping heavy metal soundtrack. Create your own monster apocalypse with customizable Kaijus and lay waste to a wide variety of locations waiting to be stomped into dust.
With every run you undertake to try and get to each location’s boss, your Giga will become more powerful and earn mutation points. Spend these points to upgrade your Giga with new mutations, skills, skins, and even up to five tiny minion pets who will accompany you on your outings of urban destruction. Take care of your Giga in Tamagotchi-style minigames and decorate your Giga’s home with cool items that will improve your Giga and make them even more menacing.
Gigapocalypse offers nine monsters to choose from – three ‘Old Gods’, three prehistoric monstrosities, and three horrors from outer space. You can take these beasts of destruction into a host of fun city locations across multiple timelines, ranging from the Wild West to the modern day.
