Godville isn't a game that you win. It's not even a game that you play. And yet, there are a wide range of achievements for your hero to strive for, with your help.

The great achievements of a hero are displayed proudly in two different ways; in the form of a small collection of medals that appear after the God's name around the game, and a larger set of achievements that can be seen on the God's page (to see your own, click the hero's name from the main hero page).

List of Medals

Medals celebrate the achievement of major milestones in the hero or heroine's career. There are only a few of them, and each represents months or years of effort to achieve.

Description Symbol Awarded for Gameplay effects
Temple Owner Collecting 1,000 gold bricks to complete the temple. Completing the temple grants miracles, dungeons, free accumulator charges, buying experience with gold coins, and many other benefits. It unlocks the collection of gopher wood logs to begin the ark, and Pantheon of Savings towards retirement.
Ark Owner Collecting 1,000 logs of gopher wood to complete the ark. Completing the ark unlocks sailing, the collection of creatures towards the Creature Master achievement, allows the hero to safely store up to three pets in the ark and even rename them.
Animalist Raising a pet to level 30. Pets owned by heroes or heroines with the Animalist medal change their personality three times more often[1] and get knocked out far less often.
Trader Saving 30 million gold coins to buy a shop and retire. Buying a shop and retiring gives the hero access to great wealth and progression in trader levels, needed for the Honored Moneybags achievement.
Creature Master Collecting 1,000 pairs of creatures in the ark. Creature Masters open a laboratory that allows them to stitch boss-monster pieces together into a monstrous pet boss.
Bookmaker Jotting down 1,000 words - each with 4 glyphs - into the Book of Creation. Bookmakers can forge their own dungeons, complete with having their own lab boss guarding the treasury, and can advance in Forge Levels with each party of heroes going down their dungeon.


4-laurel.png 5-laurel.png When a hero or heroine has achieved at least 4 medals, they will be displayed on the Godville website and in the app as a laurel symbol, instead of the full set of medal icons. On desktop, moving the mouse over the symbol will reveal the medals and details of the god or goddess.

List of Achievements

Originally features of the Godville mobile applications, Achievements eventually became mainstream gameplay features[2]. There are many to aim for, and most have variants of different ranks. All currently obtainable achievements are listed below.

The number of points each achievement is worth are only displayed in the iOS Godville App since there is a scoring system in the Apple 'Game Center'. Exclusive to the iOS and Android Apps are the icons displayed for each achievement. The images on the icons for each category of achievement are all the same with the only difference being the colour (except for the 'general' category available only on iOS, where each one has its own different image). The 3rd rank icons are bronze, 2nd rank icons are silver, 1st rank icons are gold, and honored rank icons are maroon.

To check how close (or far) a hero is to the next achievement, go to the god page ( and hover the mouse pointer over the achievement. For example, moving a mouse arrow over the Hunter, 3rd rank achievement will display a window stating "Kill 5 boss monsters. Next: Kill 50 boss-monsters (XX% completed)"

  4. The language in these descriptions is exactly as written in the Godville achievement information. Please do not edit this column without verifying that the language has also been changed. This note also acknowledges that some of the wording is inconsistent and/or can benefit from a skilled editor and the four and five digit numbers could also benefit from commas.
  5. See the Help page ( and click on In-game hints messages.
  6. For example, if a hero dies 50 times, he will gain the Martyr, 2nd rank achievement. If that hero then opens a mystery box and has a death removed (so that his Death Count decreases to 49) he will still keep his Martyr, 2nd rank achievement, but he will need 101 more deaths to gain the Martyr, 1st rank achievement. Therefore, it is possible to have the Honored Martyr achievement and a death count of 0.
