Teardown is a game about destruction. In a voxel world, you play as a professional destroyer who needs to do unlawful jobs for various clients, going more and more criminal… Or just enjoy smashing everything around. Its voxeled style is impeccable, and interactivity is on the highest level. And the game still evolves.

Tear Those MF Down

Did Jenga only make sense to you when the tower finally crashed? Then Teardown is the game for you. In it, you have to destroy objects: set them on fire, smash with cars, explode, break with a hammer or with a ball, shoot with guns, and so on.

Teardown has a storyline. In it, you play as a professional destructor, bringing down buildings and stuff with a whole lot of tools, from hammers to explosives. But once your client offers you an illegal but well-paid job, your life changes. You get caught in a chain of events that leads to more and more crimes. So escalates the destruction, and finally there is hardly a place in this town that remains safe. It also involves strategic planning, as timers only give you limited time before the cops enter. But the environment provides enough opportunities to apply tricks and get away with it.

Along with this, you can play Teardown in sandbox mode, just driving or walking around and destroying what you want. Set places on fire, smash them with cars, find weaknesses with a hammer, or blow them with bombs. Resources are unlimited in this mode, and there are no timers that may irritate when playing the story.

If you imagine something rough like Minecraft or Roblox on hearing about voxels, you’ll be surprised. Though the game is really voxel-made, it looks fantastic, with as much realism as possible for this manner. It’s partly due to elaborate physics that shows destruction with all respect to inner structures, weight, gravity, ricochet, and stuff. On the other hand, this voxel style makes Teardown compatible with even very old hardware. If your PC has at least 4 GB RAM and can run Windows 7, chances are you’ll enjoy the full potential of Teardown on it.

Last but not least: you can become a coauthor. The game is mod-friendly and integrated with Steam Workshop. Given its popularity at the moment, there will be more content. Not only does it encourage players to destroy, but also to create new levels and mods.

The Conclusion

Teardown is a great sandbox where someone has already built an entire town of sandcastles for you. Here you come to bring them all down and enjoy the process. There is more to expect, as the game is still in Early Access, leaving some space for new features, missions, and locations. But it’s already here to satisfy your appetite for destruction or press F for Marvin Heemeyer.

Pros:
  • Incredibly great visuals
  • Everything is interactive
  • The game evolves before your eyes
  • Low system requirements
  • So much destruction
Cons:
  • Early Access (and thus bugs possible)
  • Timers may irritate you in the story mode
  • So much destruction
