Smash the Office Review
- Zany, over-the-top presentation; almost Suda 51 inspired in its simple charm.
- Meaty melee strikes; makes the game feel solid and satisfying.
- No hooks to keep you coming back for more; depth in gameplay limited, and 'boosts' only occasionally reward players for perseverance.
Smash the Office will give you a laugh or three, then it quickly turns in to a light chuckle before you realize there's not much else to experience. If anything it makes for a fun piece of stress relief.

If you've seen Office Space, then you'll know about its famous (or is that infamous?) printer smashing scene. It's a cathartic scene, especially if you've spent any extended amount of time in an office environment, but what if you could take things even further than the printer? Smash the Office isn't a title that seeks to ensconce players in a deep and thoughtful world. No, you get 60 seconds to smash up everything you can in an effort to score points and earn coins so you can do it again.
After completing a short tutorial you're unleashed in to an endless series of rooms filled with office equipment and a bat. The isometric view lets you visually take in each area in an instant, so you can scour it for all the generous bonuses such as computer monitors or printers. Power-ups also occasionally appear, giving you boost ranging from coin multipliers to freezing time for a short period.
And really, that's all there is to it. You jump in, you smash things up as best as possible and when you're out of time you'll collect the coins and points for your high-score attempt. If you happen to have enough coins you can also activate a one-off boost, making it even easier to beat your last attempt.
This is snack-sized gaming reduced to a mouthful. It's a tasty mouthful and you're sure to take a few extra bites if you're having a bad day, but beyond the delightfully amusing presentation there's very little keeping you coming back for more.
