GIGA WRECKER Alt. is coming to Consoles This Year!

We are excited to bring the 2D action-adventure and metroidvania inspired game, GIGA WRECKER Alt., to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One digital stores later this year together with Rising Star Games. We’re also proud to announce Limited Run Games will distribute the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch physical versions.

GIGA WRECKER Alt. comes to consoles with brand-new content that adds 20 additional puzzle stages to its campaign, a new companion character to assist players with the game’s increasingly challenging puzzles, and an “Ironman” mode with 5 times the damage than the regular mode.

Destroy your enemies using the ARCHE powers

GIGA WRECKER Alt. establishes a 2D world for navigating platforms and solving increasingly challenging puzzles as players progress to unearth the mysteries of a sudden invasion that left the world in ruins. As players explore, they’ll use the abilities of Reika – that game’s main protagonist – to destroy and reconstruct their surroundings for solving each puzzle and fighting back against the invaders.

GIGA WRECKER Alt. is a mixture of exploration and physics where players can bring down towering walls and then use the rubble as a platform for navigating each level. Reika has a power known as ARCHE (Arms Creating and Handling Effect) that allows her to construct various weapons from rubble and scrap. This ability helps her create and navigate platforms, beat traps, and destroy enemies. Of course, there’s also the ability to crush enemies with falling objects as well.
