ONLY ON ANDROID...Demolition Inc. THD Brings Destructive Physics To Tegra Devices In One Massive Download (VIDEO)
[New Game] Demolition Inc. THD Brings Destructive Physics To Tegra Devices In One Massive Download
Posted by Ryan Whitwam in Games, News

After wrecking Earth on the PC last year, Demolition Inc. has arrived on Android by way of Nvidia's Tegra Zone. That means you're going to need a Tegra 2 or 3 device to enjoy the detailed graphics and realistic physics in this action/strategy title, at least for now.

The game is essentially a well-implemented physics simulator that has you taking a city apart piece by piece so its raw materials can be harvested. You see, Mike the UFO-driving demolition man is just a working Joe from another planet, and when the work order says to knock down a planet, that's what he does. The game will have you dropping various objects as simple as an oil slick, and as convoluted as a exploding cows into play in order to wreak havoc.

Nvidia and the developer describe the game as "100% physics technology" where none of the animations are predetermined. All the building collapses and explosions are procedurally generated as you go. That in and of itself is unique for Android games.

If you don't have a Tegra device, don't fret too much. A non-Tegra variant will be Available by the end of April, but it will lack support for an external controller. The developer also says some levels will remain exclusive to Tegra devices. I would also expect the graphics to be toned down for devices without Nvidia's chips.

Demolition Inc. THD is a huge download of 103MB, which you might notice is larger than the single APK limit. This is the first game I've seen that makes use of the Play Store's built-in additional data download. When you buy the game, it will download the game data first, then the actual app package will be installed. This is probably done so the return window isn't shortened by waiting for the game data to be stored. The game is selling for $3.99 in the Play Store, which isn't bad for what is clearly a high-quality Tegra game.
