Tag: Demolition City
I typed “Walkthrough” into my YouTube search bar and waded through the 1st 17 pages of results, which takes us down to 200,000 views per video. ”Walkthrough” returned the results of any video with the word Walkthrough in either the title or description of the video. This should be a pretty all-inclusive list, barring any games besides Ice Breaker that have a crapton of videos for 1 game (I just happened to know about the walks for those games, so I knew to check… no one of the vids has 200k+ views).
The List: Game Name (# of Vids) – Total Views in Millions – Ave Views/Vid
- Red Remover (2) – 11.4 – 5.7
- This Is The Only Level – 2.8
- Wake Up The Box – 2.6
- Poptropica: Nabooti Island – 2.0
- Cover Orange – 2.0
- Use Boxmen – 1.8
- Roly-Poly Eliminator – 1.6
- This Is The Only Level TOO – 1.1
- Poptropica: Big Nate Island – 1.0
- Wake The Royalty (2) – 1.7 – 850k
- Poptropica: Astro Knights (4) – 2.8 – 700k
- Fragger (2) – 1.4 – 700k
- Poptropica: Spy Island (3) – 1.9 – 633k
- Demolition City 2 (3) – 1.9 – 633k
- Poptropica: Counterfeit Island (4) – 2.2 – 550k
- Poptropica: Mythology Island (4) – 2.0 – 500k
- Demolition City (2) – 1.0 – 500k
- Crush the Castle: Players Pack (4) – 1.3 – 325k
- Stadium Sneakout (10) – 1.0 – 100k
- Ice Breaker (40) – 1.8 – 45k
- Ice Breaker: Red Clan (40) – 1.4 – 35k
These are video groups done by 1 person; no mix and matching. Also, no 1 game/island had more than 1 person with 1 mil views on their walkthrough… although 1 or 2 of the Poptropica Islands were close with a 2nd.
Analyzing the list shows very specific types of games that meet this list: Poptropica, Phuzzles, and Puzzle Platformers account for 19/21. CtC:PP is a physics game, but not a phuzzle… and Stadium Sneakout is a point & click that doesn’t really belong on the list at all because each video is :08-:30 long. The top17 are 6 Poptropicas, 8 Phuzzles, and 3 Puzzle Platformers. Finally, I made 8 of the top 18 (8 of 12 if you discount Poptropica).
If you know of any game that I missed, please let me know. :)
Another week, another new game created in-house by Joey Betz and John Cooney of Armor Games. This is 2 weeks in a row now they’ve started a game on Monday and released it by Friday. Last week it was Demolition City (just Joey)… this week it is nanoTank. Both games are really cool concepts, but you can see that only a week was put into them… mostly in the level design. There is a bit of a lack of creativity to them, but that is to be expected. Mostly, I’m nick-picking. In actuality, I’m hoping that a month or two from now they go back to these games and create sequels from them… adding harder and more creative levels, new feature sets, and level editors.
nanoTank puts you in the role of a long tank with a big gun. Your goal is to make it to the other side. Simple? Not quite. Falling objects, spikes, and timed gates are there to stop you. Plus, there are 5 stars per level and a speed time to achieve on each level. Plenty of challenge for the gamer that just HAS to do everything.
In case you get stuck, here is my walkthrough showing how to beat each level in under the par time:
Play the game now on Armor Games!
New game in the “blow stuff up” genre… I’d call it a cousin to games like Fragger or Roly-Poly Cannon. Place bombs on certain pieces of a building to demolish it under a specific height. Pretty fun, not too hard, and over too fast. I suspect there will be a sequel. Could also use a level editor!
