Teardown is a puzzle game that might seem like an action game on the surface. Yes, destruction is the main gameplay element, but focusing all of that destructive possibility into a laser to achieve a specific goal is really what you’re doing. Errors can often be solved with simply changing your own thought process, as there is always more than one way to get whatever you’re doing done.
Despite the respectable job the developer has done with stretching this concept out to its logical conclusion, I still wish that there was a bit more meat on the bone and better performance across the board. That said, as it stands, Teardown isn’t a bad way to tease your brain for a little while, and coming up with wacky solutions to basic logistical problems is a great hook, even if the fun factor isn’t as consistent as you might be expecting.
