  • The first job in the campaign should have been a lot more hand-holding as it lays out everything you can and needs to do.

Teardown is a surprise hit for me, I didn’t really know what I was getting into as it passed me by thanks to the ever-busy schedule. Teardown is a game that always boils down to smashing shit up to try and solve your problems which is a good way to approach life! The voxel-style graphics lend themselves well to the fully destructible environment, the garage of vehicles and tools dictate what and how you go about your onslaught. I love just booting it up and getting on with it with not a lot of fuss. You buy this game to either smash crap up or because you love out-of-the-box thinking of solutions.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
