Viral Demolition is one of five hacking mini-games in Sly Cooper: Age of Thieves. The player guides different-colored balls of light inside of a container, using the X button to change their positions. If three or more orbs of the same color make a line, be it horizontal or vertical, then the orbs will vanish and points will be awarded to the player. Multiple lines of different colored orbs can also be used to give the player even more points, especially if the game's combo system (that is, if the orbs of light fall onto orbs of the same color) effects things, making it much easier to complete the challenge. However, there is a time limit and a set amount of points to reach. If the player can't reach the right amount of points in time, then the player loses. If the player reaches or exceeds the amount of points for the particular challenge, then the player wins.
