Gigapocalypse is an addictive and fun roguelite game where you’re trying to dominate the world as a dinosaur, the achievement to get all 9 Gigas on lvl 50 is grindy and time-consuming. No missable achievements and 100% takes +-35h.

In Gigapocalypse you play as a dinosaur who is escaping and killing humanity. You can choose between 9 dinosaurs aka Gigas. You start at a training level where you’re pretty strong and will learn how to fight with the dinosaur you chose. After that, you will find your dinosaur in a baby form who isn’t strong at all. For me, this game feels like a roguelite game since you will get experience and points which you can use to upgrade yourself. If you unlock level-specific achievements you’ll get permanent upgrades that every Giga will start with, making you much much stronger in the beginning. You can find them in the decoration menu. The game is very addictive and a lot of fun, but I would not suggest playing all the gigas directly after each other while getting them to lvl 50 because it gets quite boring after a while. Maybe with a break of a few days or more in between it is better.

Most of the achievements you’ll get by just playing through the game. There are ones for unlocking all skins for 1 giga, completing the different levels, and more like that. The level-specific achievements can sometimes be a bit harder to get, but are worth the grind as it gives you a permanent bonus for all gigas. As already stated above the only more annoying achievement is getting all the gigas to level 50, that is what will cost the most time. It might be possible that it is doable to do it faster than 35h but I tried to do the most runs idling with the (auto-attack) options in the ESC menu when starting a level, while doing other things at my computer at the same time. This doesn’t work for all gigas and might have been more time-consuming but required less input from me.

PS Worth mentioning is that I encountered a few very small bugs, but that the developer fixed those in just a few hours. The developer is very responsive and you can totally see that this is a very passionate developer who wants his game in tip-top shape.
