|List of Trophies|
Apotheon is a 2D sidescrolling action game based on Greek Mythology. While its level design is similar to that of a Metroidvania-type game (like Guacamelee! or Super Metroid), with many secrets and collectibles to find, it does not bestow the player with powerups that enhance that player's mobility as the game progresses. It also has a larger focus on action/combat than most Metroidvania games. It was offered as a free Playstation Plus game in North America and Europe in February 2015.
Step 1: Play through the gameEdit
First, just play through the game. Whether you play on Champion difficulty or Warrior difficulty does not matter, so you are free to play however you want. The only missable trophy is A Hero's Due (as it is possible for treasure chests to become stuck or glitched – see guide for details) and there is no point of no return, since the game automatically makes 3 autosaves for you, and one of them will always be from before the final boss fight. In this step, you will earn at least the following trophies:
|Crest of Ares|
|Aegis of Athena|
|Sheaf of Demeter|
|Trident of Poseidon|
|Thunderbolt of Zeus|
|Bow of Artemis|
Step 2: Collectibles and side questsEdit
Now go back to a save from before the final boss and collect all trophies other than Olympian . In particular, you will be working toward Divine Wrath and Divine Wrath , as well as the following side quest trophies:
Just follow the guides for those trophies in any order that you like; they can be done in almost any order, and they are almost entirely independent of each other.
Step 3: Olympian difficultyEdit
Now that you have completed the game, you are able to select "Olympian difficulty" when starting a new game. Olympian difficulty, compared to Warrior difficulty (the standard difficulty), is harder in the following ways:
- No health recharge
- Getting hit interrupts your attacks
- Enemies deal 50% more damage
- Enemies have 15% more health
- Enemies have 50% faster attack speed
See Olympian for tips on clearing this difficulty setting. Alternatively, there is a glitch that lets you skip almost the entire game on Olympian difficulty and only have to defeat the final boss. See the trophy guide for details. Once you beat the game on Olympian difficulty, you will earn Omnipotence .
|Bow of Artemis |
|Acquire the Bow of Artemis|
Story-related and unmissable. You will fight Artemis in her Forest – the boss fight is a hunting game, where you alternate turns turning into a deer and hunting each other. After you defeat her, she will drop her bow. This trophy unlocks as soon as you pick it up.More about this trophy...
