Taking on the role of a recently fired construction employee, Demolish and Build 2018 sees you operating your own business in the form of a construction/demolition company. You’ll start off with just a pickup truck and a sledgehammer as you take on your first contracts that see you demolishing toilets and taking out trash as you work your way up the business ladder.

As you start off small you’ll eventually get bigger and have access to more vehicles and tools of the trade allowing you to take part in different jobs of different scales.

It all takes a lot of time and at the very beginning of the game you’ll take on many small tasks just to simply make enough money to help your business flourish. For this reason, it helps to be a patient gamer as things do start to feel boring and repetitive, after all, there’s only so much fun in taking things to skips and ripping out electric cables before it starts to feel dry. There are some other ways to make money but these work side by side with actual jobs such as selling materials.

Demolish and Build 2018 review

Every objective you take on is marked with a tracker but the information it gives you isn’t much to go on other than a few words such as take chairs to the container or take out fixtures. Finding current objectives can be done using the map, although it’s not really that well created of a map as it suffers from tracking issues itself.

Graphically the game is rubbish and looks like something from many years ago. Popping up occurs everywhere within the game world and the draw distance is pretty similar to older style PS2 games. Then there are the vehicle graphics which are simply unbelievable, especially since all the vehicles you can drive wobble ferociously for no reason at all.

Demolish and Build 2018 review

At its best, Demolish and Build 2018 is a fun little way to kill some time, but it’s not something I would find myself going back to and playing over and over again or even having any interest in completing as it simply gets boring to fast, even when you have access to all of the machines and tools on offer.

That concludes our Demolish and Build 2018 review. If you wish to purchase the game on Nintendo Switch check out the links below.
