Teardown is a strategic game where you plan and execute a heist in a fully destructible environments. Your objective is to claim the key cards that are hidden around the map. However taking one triggers the alarm, giving you only sixty seconds before you’re busted. You must plan your approach, and prepare the arena before hand to have a chance of winning.

It’s an unusual game because you can destroy anything, its real world physics and the two phases of gameplay: prepare and execute. By destroying walls, creating platforms and driving vehicles, you can create a unique escape. As well as experimenting with tools such as blow torch, sledge hammer, fire extinguisher, guns and explosives. If you fail you can simply restart the mission and plan a new route or strategy.

The campaign mode follows the story of you and your company, increasing in debt, as you perform various heists and missions closely linked with characters you meet along the way. You can also discover new tools and other hidden valuables to be used in later missions. The realistic yet pixel-like game creates a interactive and creative world to explore, with little or no limit of what you can achieve.
