Demolition Inc. is a very cheap game, so it is very reasonable to question its quality. Have no fear, this game is worth the price ($2.49 during Steam sale) and then some!

Demolition Inc. is a game about destroying towns and architecture by manipulating traffic. It is very archaic, yet it is also strictly kid-friendly. It has very simple controls and is somewhat easy to play, however, it offers many difficult challenges for the long term gamer.

The length of the game is somewhat short but long enough. The replay value is higher than you would think, and the menu is very comfortable when replaying levels. Loading screens are only seen when actually starting a level, and you will not have to endure a loading screen when restarting a mission.

The music is nothing special, but the sounds are nice, and the dialogue is easy to read. Everything is in big lettering, and the story is almost non-existent, which is a good thing in this case, because the game makes very little sense.

Overall, I highly recommend this game when looking for a casual game for children. It does not baby you too much, and the more violent children may still enjoy wrecking havoc on buildings and traffic. If you're not sure about this game, download the demo from Steam.

PC When we refer to PC, we mean personal computers, so be sure you read what operating systems support this game. Currently, we review games for Mac, Windows, Linux, and DOS.

Another thing to look for when browsing PC games is the system requirements. There are really 4 things you need to worry about: RAM or memory, processor, video card, and finally, the hard drive space. Memory can be upgraded fairly easily, and it shouldn't cost much. We recommend having at least 1GB memory, 2GB if possible. Your processor needs to be fairly modern, and a Pentium 4 probably won't cut it. We recommend a 1.8Ghz Core 2 Duo or better. Your video card should support DirectX 9 (or higher) and have a minimum of 256mb memory attached to it. We recommend 512mb or greater. Hard drive space is subjective, but we recommend having a fairly large amount of space. You could settle for as little as 40gb and be able to play most games, but we recommend having 80gb or more space to make sure you have room for multiple games at once. Most PC games don't run straight from their disc. They usually require an install process, and most modern games require around 8gb of free space to install.

PC controller PCs are the ultimate game console, because they can be upgraded, and they will never go out of style. PCs can also play most old game systems through emulators, so if you lose your Playstation, you can just play your games on your PC. You can also play classic arcade titles and have infinite coins!

A lot of people complain about having to use a mouse and keyboard to play PC games. This isn't a requirement, fortunately, and we have what we call gamepads or joypads. Yes, we can use game controllers! We can even use Xbox controllers! That said, it's not as plug-and-play as a game console, and some games simply will not work with your joypad. Fortunately, Steam tells you if games support controllers, and if your favorite game doesn't support them, you can map the controllers to keyboard and mouse controls.

Just be careful when buying PC games. Read reviews carefully. If a game gets a 1/5, don't buy it. If your PC is a cheapie, don't expect modern 3d games to work. Read the system requirements very carefully. If you don't know anything about your system, you can find help in the PC Stuff forum.
