ABRISS – build to destroy from astragon and Randwerk Games is a challenging physics-based destruction puzzler on PlayStation 5. Your goal is simple: destroy all red targets to win. But if you want to 100% the game, you’ll need to destroy as much as possible in each level in as few moves as possible in order to hit the minimum requirements. You’ll notice that for some levels the margin for error is very slim, but as long as you retry and don’t give up, things will click, and you’ll even reach 100% destruction!

Once you’re ready to go, use the left analog stick to move the camera around as you try to place pieces and plan for the destruction up ahead. You can also rotate the camera with the right analog stick to get a better look at things. The right analog stick is also used to zoom in and out. Parts can be rotated clockwise and counterclockwise using the L1 and R1 buttons. You can select them from the left side of the screen by using the D-Pad. Place them by pressing the X button.

Along with the heavy block that can damage structures considerably, you will also have the heavy pillar to consider. You’ll soon unlock a connector to make pieces stick together, and even a bomb that you can activate by pressing a button to make it go BOOM! To make the most of the available parts for each level that you take on, you should also make good use of the connector so that you can link pieces together. Parts can also be removed by pressing the Circle button. The L2 button can be used to undo your last action. Once you think you have built what is needed to solve the level, press the R2 button to set everything in motion.

And now, it’s trophy time! ABRISS has a full trophy list with a Platinum trophy waiting for you. The list is split into 29 Bronze trophies, 16 Silver trophies, and a single Gold trophy for you to work on. A good chunk of them will pop up after completing the game’s tutorial and taking on the first handful of levels in ABRISS. There’s one for finishing the tutorial, another for obtaining the ultra heavy cube, one more for the heavy pillar, and an extra one for the connector. Since those are not all of the elements you’ll use to destroy stuff, you will also get trophies for the laser, the bomb, and so on.

There are also trophies for completing each world in the Campaign Mode and doing so by having both the destruction and move awards. The ones that will take some extra time are the series of trophies that require that you destroy over 100,000 blocks as you go through the game, all while also building over 20,000 parts. Oh, and you should also use Photo Mode at least once to get another trophy!

ABRISS – build to destroy is a challenging physics-based destruction puzzler. As you use the different available parts for each level, you’ll end up creating deadly contraptions to destroy the red cores… as well as much as possible of each structure! You’ll definitely need to think outside the box to solve some of the puzzles you’ll run into, but that’s just part of the fun. ABRISS – build to destroy is out on PlayStation 5 with a $19.99 price tag.
