2.I dont know if u consider this a spoiler but the puzzles do not live up to their hype....if there was any... solved few of them almost instantly.... dunno if thats only just my brain...
3 the above point is with ref to only a few handful....there are genuinely amazing puzzles in this game u must experience.....those "aha!" moments are really worth it....
4.wont say anything about graphics cos graphics dont make a game, but... cool "art" style.... sound isnt very good imo...repetitive....but it matches the mood to some extent
"must play" for puzzle game aficionados...
recommended for everyone else too...… Collapse
Jun 16, 2013This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The Bridge is an independent puzzle game set in an M. C. Escher-like world. Your basic controls consist of walking and turning the world. The game's ad states that no two puzzles are similar, which sounds like an interesting challenge. Unfortunately, it does not quite live up to these expectations.
The puzzles are divided into four chapters, each having six puzzles and the "mirrored" versions of each and every world, 48 total. While the first half is, say, realistic, the second half is quite disjointed forward puzzles are intertwined with really odd ones. The most difficult part was figuring out the locations of the so-called "wisps". According to the forum discussions it took an entire community quite some time to find all of them and the "hints" at these are really complex.
The frustration part was a little too much for my taste, but overall it is a very nicely designed game. It can be played well with a controller, but I'd say that its current retail price of 14 is a tad too much.… Expand
Apr 24, 2015From the simple but also great idea of giving the player 2 sets of controls, one for the main character and one for the world, the developersFrom the simple but also great idea of giving the player 2 sets of controls, one for the main character and one for the world, the developers made a little masterpiece.
The game has a strong philosophical theme: main character resembling a early ninetieth century German philosopher, the idea of changing the world around you, strong symbolism, etc. This theme blends perfectly with the mechanics of the game, the music and the idea of a greyscale drawing graphic.
The puzzles are really hard (at least they have been for me) and to solve them you have to discard your idea of gravity, because here everything is relative.
I'm not giving this game huge numbers just because it's not much elaborate, even if extremely well made.
I'd like to recommend this game only to people who really like to think a lot, because this game makes you do that.… Expand
Mar 23, 2014Decent puzzle game. Despite it's escheresque presentation, most of the puzzles are not nearly as convoluted as they may first appear: mostDecent puzzle game. Despite it's escheresque presentation, most of the puzzles are not nearly as convoluted as they may first appear: most solutions are pretty straight forward and the amount of lateral thinking required is pretty low. This sums up in a somewhat unappealing gameplay that would, by itself, make an sub-average puzzle game if it weren't for overall graphical appeal. The art style is commendable and is perhaps the very reason I kept playing the game. On the technical side, the game often feels tedious due to the control's sluggishness (even on a high end gaming rig). Overall, don't expect a masterpiece but The Bridge can sure fill one evening or two if only to enjoy stepping in a sweet, grey Escher like universe.… Expand

Sep 22, 2014The Bridge is a physics based puzzler with poor physics mechanics. That right there spells the downfall of the game. It tries to be like BraidThe Bridge is a physics based puzzler with poor physics mechanics. That right there spells the downfall of the game. It tries to be like Braid by allowing you to rewind time and offering attempts at witty quotes in between levels, but none of it is anywhere near as good. There is no pacing in the levels. You'll start out easy, then they will quickly ramp up the difficulty, only to lower it again later. Levels will range from being a minute long to over a half hour (if you want a particular achievement). Some of the levels just because needlessly tedious. By the end, The Bridge is a chore to play when it should have been a casual experience.… Expand
