Side-scrolling city smasher 'Gigapocalypse' heads to Switch June 2nd, 2022
Another monster enters the arena
Headup Games & Goody Gameworks have revealed their retro-inspired side scrolling city-smasher Gigapocalypse, and it’s coming to Switch on June 2nd, 2022.
Inspired by Kaiju monster movies like Godzilla and King Kong, as well as gaming classics like Rampage, Gigapocalypse gives players a roster of monsters to choose from as they reduce cities to rubble, all to the beat of a pumping heavy metal soundtrack.
For more details on Gigapocalypse, check out the press blurb below.
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 from across multiple timelines, ranging from the Wild West to the modern day.
