Vampire Survivors: Patch 1.0 Adds New Modes and Achievements

The 2D side-scrolling survival game Vampire Survivors got a new patch recently that added new modes and achievements.

Developer Poncle added four new achievements in Vampire Survivors Patch 1.0, with two of them unlocking new game modes.

Players who obtain Gracia’s Mirror will unlock the Inverse Mode. As the name implies, playing with this mode enabled will invert all stage layouts upside down, along with minor visual changes to make them distinct.

Gold is important in Vampire Survivors because this currency allows players to purchase power-ups, items, and new characters . In Inverse Mode, the gold gain is increased by 200%, likely as compensation for playing on a more convoluted layout.

Do note, however, that enemies start with 200% max HP and they regenerate 5% of their health every minute, so it’s important to dispatch them as quickly as possible.

The other game mode introduced in Patch 1.0 is the Endless Mode. This is unlocked permanently by getting the Seventh Trumpet from the Eudaimonia Machine.

Endless Mode is different from an ordinary run because the Reaper won’t spawn at the last minute, meaning, players can continue on without end. Instead of the Reaper’s appearance, the final minute of a stage will reset the enemy waves to minute zero, thus completing a “cycle.”

Once the cycle resets, enemies gain a few buffs that make them more challenging to defeat. Aside from getting a 100% increase to their base max HP, enemies spawn 50% faster and deal 25% more damage per cycle.
