What happens when you combine both New York City and a variety of monsters? A television series and an arcade game called Ugly Americans: Apocalypsegeddon. In this game, you can control one of four main characters from the television show. These characters are Mark Lilly, Callie Maggotbone, Leonard Powers and Francis Grimes. Each character has his/her own stats that can be upgraded when a play levels up in-game (Max level is "60"). Also, each character has his/her own "special attack". Play as your favorite character from the television show and have fun destroying the city and monsters that are trying to destroy you. The gameplay and controls are easy to learn and the game is considered a "twin-stick Shoot'em up". Let's all get on the bus and head towards New York City for a new adventure.

It seems there is trouble in New York City and it's the job of the D.O.I. to take care of it. They head to Central Park to find a concert playing and that the lead singer looks a lot like Callie. It seems like the lead singer is named Desdemona and she's part of something called the, "End of Days" that could destroy the world. Callie will soon find out that she and Desdemona have more in common then how similar they look like one another. The gang learns that Desdemona is going to marry Twayne as part of the "End of Days" ceremony. Can the gang stop Desdemona and the "End of Days"?

Abbreviated Walkthrough:
You can either purchase the game of play the free trial here.

There are eleven cases (cases are considered stages in this game) where you fight a variety of monsters to complete the game's main story. There are also various weapons, power-ups and baby demons to find that are useful to beat the game. When you level up you earn points and these points can go towards to one of six different stats, like health, strength, etc. The highest level that can be earned in this game is "level 60" and the best weapon seems to be the "demon head". Some grinding might be necessary to complete certain cases solo, but if your playing online with other players, then beating the game will be much simpler. Sticking with one character is a wise decision if you want to have a high leveled character to beat the game solo.

Overall, just keep playing the game and you'll be high enough level in no time to beat the final boss. Any stage can be re-visited, so grinding levels shouldn't be hard.

This game can hold up to "four" max players offline or online. To get every achievement in the game you must beat the entire game online with other players to earn the online achievement, "Embrace Diversity".

The achievements in this game overall are easy to earn. It might be hard to earn the only online achievement if you get this game late, since the player population for this game is low to none. The best bet to get the online achievement now is to make a thread in the Official XBA Boosting Session Information & Discussion forum. Online players can also help you beat the game if you can't beat the game playing solo and will help you level up at the same time.

The game overall is fun to play, but even better with up to three other friends or online players. Doing everything in this game is worth it, since you can unlock scenes from the main game, deleted scenes, an actual episode from the television series, and more. These can be found in the "Extras" menu from the main menu. The game feels like an episode from the show, contains humor and some mature themes. If you loved the television show Ugly Americans in the past then you don't want to miss out on this game.

Embrace Diversity25
Complete the game in an Xbox LIVE multiplayer session.   (16) 

Embrace Diversity requires you to complete each level of the game over Xbox-Live with another player. This cannot be a second controller as the game recognizes that you are on the same Xbox. You don't have to complete them in order or even with the same character but you do have to finish out the level, it won't count if the other person in the room leaves.

See You In Hell25
Complete the game using any character.   

Simply complete the game as the achievement states. There are 11 cases(levels) in the game and some will give you some issues if you aren't familiar with how the game plays or you are under-leveled. Case 5 in particular was rough for slower characters as the part right in front of the movie theater has many waves of very fast demons who will eat at your life very quickly if you can't out maneuver them. Callie is your best bet here if you are playing solo.

Just some general tips for playing any character, always keep moving preferably backwards so enemies are running into your bullets. If you can't run backwards try to do circles around the enemies. I also found that the homing or area of effect weapons were best for all but the boss levels as you can focus more on moving and less on aiming. If you're having trouble finishing a level without dying you can always level up a bit in a previous level or jump into an online game and try to complete it with some extra help.

We Don't Need No Magic!30
Complete all levels without using special attacks   (3) 

Completing all levels without using special attacks may seem difficult, but when you're leveled up and have all the best weapons (namely the demon head) it really isn't necessary to use your special attack at all. Just run through each level without activating a special attack and the achievement will pop. It has been confirmed that you can have a friend in co-op use special attacks without it affecting your achievement. (Thanks neeker75)

Demons, The Bane Of My Existence20
Locate and collect all of the Demon Babies.    (1) 

There are 4 Demon Babies you can find randomly throughout the game after you find Dante in the trash bag at the beginning of level 5. Once you you've found Dante you'll know a Demon Baby will be found in a level if you see Dante's head on the case file in the mission select screen. When this happens the baby will spawn inside one of the destructible items like garbage cans, benches, potted trees, etc. Dante(red), Thorpal(purple), Phoebe(green) and Gustav(yellow) are VERY small and easy to miss if you aren't looking carefully.

It's the Collector!20
Collect all the projectiles.    (4) 

Here is a list of the levels and what weapons you can find on them. In addition to those weapons, there are four that you receive for picking up the final four hidden case files. There are hidden case files stashed in environmental destructible objects on all levels(garbage cans, hotdog carts, potted trees, mailboxes, etc) with the exception of the boss fights in cases 4,8 and 11. They spawn randomly so you won't find a hidden case file every time you complete a level, don't get discouraged if you miss them on your first couple times through. You can tell which levels you have hidden case files collected for by highlighting the case on the case select screen and if there is a file folder icon in the bottom left corner of the case file then you have that level's hidden file.

You can also have another player drop the weapons they are using if you need it, you don't need to complete the level to save either, just picking up the weapon gives you credit for having it.

My New Favorite Number15
Defeat 50 enemies in a row without getting hit.   

I thought for sure that this achievement would be the hardest in the game but it really isn't. If you follow my general advice listed under See You In Hell! you should have it on the first or second level. If you are having difficulties try running through the second level as the zombies there are pretty slow and you shouldn't encounter anyone shooting projectiles at you.

Repeat, Repeat, Repeat10
Use any special attack 100 times.   

Simply use any special attack 100 times just load level 1 or 2, sit on the first screen where there aren't any enemies and keep casting special attacks with the until the achievement pops. Leonard paired with Demon Baby Gustav seems to be the best choice for this as he has the highest innate special attack recharge and Gustav just makes it better.

Wakey, Wakey, Eggs and Bakey!10
Resuscitate 50 allies.   (1) 

This achievement can be done either online in co-op or locally with a second controller. Best bet is to load up a guest account and either run them continuously into the lava fountains in the later levels or load up a boss fight and let the boss kill your spare character and just keep reviving them with the button.

Keep These Bad Boys Comin’15
Rack up a 20 score multiplier.   

You just need to get up to a 20x score multiplier by defeating enemies while minimizing the amount of times you are hit. Each time you are hit the meter decreases a bit. Almost any level should net you this achievement if you are good at avoiding hits, the best is probably level 2 for the decent amount of enemies and ease of avoiding them. If level 2 is no good for you try level 3, there are more enemies but it's harder to avoid being hit by all the projectiles.

Put Your Cheeks Into It!10
Kill 1000 Manbirds.   

Simply kill 1000 Manbirds, these are Humanoid enemies with bird heads and wings. You should have enough kills by the time you finish the story but if you don't, the best places to grind Manbird kills are levels 1 and 6.

Dirty Leg Draggers...10
Kill 300 Zombies.   

Just kill 300 zombies, one of the few places you will find them is Case 2. It shouldn't take more than two runs through this case to get enough kills, so don't worry about it as you will likely get it while trying to get the hidden case file here.

No Loitering!10
Kill 5000 Demons.   (1) 

Killing 5000 demons can take a while, luckily they are found in almost every level and in great quantities. Anything other than a manbird or zombie is classified as a demon which is more than 75% of the enemies in the game. If you don't have this achievement by the time you are done with every other achievement I find the best places to grind are Cases 3 or 5 as the enemies there have a lot less health than their counterparts in the later cases.
