If you've got a device powered by a Nvidia Tegra system-on-a-chip, a solid internet connection, and one US dollar, you're in for some fun. The price on physics-based puzzler Demolition Inc. has dropped from $3.99 to just $0.99. That's a heck of a deal.

In Demolition Inc., you take on the roll of Mike, the alien demolition truck driver. Some pesky human cities are in the way, and you've got a work order that says to knock them down. To accomplish your task you have access to various otherworldly weapons like giant wrecking balls, explosive cows, and earthquake bombs. The game takes full advantage of the Tegra chip in order to simulate the physics of the world in real time.

When I reviewed the game, I was impressed with the visuals, and some of the levels were incredibly fun to play. However, there was too much planning and not enough destruction for my taste. Demolition Inc. is 98MB in size, so make sure your connection is good. This is one of the few games I've come across that make use of the Play Store's built-in additional data download.

Some levels are a little tedious, but there is a lot of content and rampage mode is genuinely fun. A non-Tegra version was supposed to be out last week, but still no sign of it. At $3.99 I would caution against jumping in with both feet, but at $0.99 Demolition Inc. is a no-brainer.

      What's funny is this is also a PC game that's been available on Steam for a while.

    meh having multiple devices with different processors has lead to me boycotting this processor-exclusive crap. otherwise id probably buy it right now.

    Purchased it once it came out - it's a great game.

    How many Tegra devices are out there? This game sounds like a lot of fun, but I don't have the right hardware.

    By Tegra SoC, do you mean Tegra-3? I have a Tegra-2 ThinkPad Tablet, but I haven't cracked open the case to see if it is all on one chip ;-)

    • RyanWhitwam

      Tegra 2 or 3 will work.

    Wow thanks guys! Surely need to make the plunge after getting the apk piratedly to try out the game. Was never worth 4 bucks but at 1 buck I'll take it!

      Btw this game was actually USD5.20 for me before this, and now it's USD1.30. No idea why. Games here in Malaysia's follow the same price as the American price, but I don't know why this game is an exception.

        same here. it is USD1.30
