Sep 1, 2014If you don't mind the simplified graphics and you just want a game that will help you relax and get annoyed at the same time, you'll find that Bridge Constructor is more than able to provide that experience.
Jan 30, 2012Bridge Constructor is a solid simulation, but does not differ from the older Bridge! The Construction Game in any noticable way.
Apr 3, 2014The game never dares to let you build bridges with any form of creativity. The way too fast introduction of all mechanics and little variety in level design, make this nothing more than an hour or two of standard puzzles.

It's basically anOf course it's not gonna be the new Mass Effect, but it does what it says on the box with no distracting elements. It's basically an engineering puzzle game, leaning to the casual appeal rather than going for the physics sim. It's perfect for me since I have no formal training in construction of any kind, but I can still benefit from experimenting with various bridge designs and see them fail (often) or fly. There's a simple map with the stages spread for you to unlock. The in-level screen is just you, the gap, and some elements to build with. There's no 'engineering lingo' to get you confused, nor any numbers (weight etc) except for the price of your building blocks and your funds limit. It's never about 'fitting the budget' as much as playing around with the designs, which is great. I had fun testing the designs, even (or especially) when they failed. Overall, I really like what this game does, and if you're here, you probably will too. With an "Expert mode" it could be used in schools, but as of now, Bridge Constructor is a fun toy with a subtle educational side to it.… Expand

A Very Fun and challenging puzzle game.
The Island nation was struck by an earthquake and destroyed every bridge on ever island...
And as the name suggests it’s your job to re construct the fallen bridges…
There are 64 levels in this game, all that get increasingly harder…
Thankfully the game does a great job at teaching you the rules and physics by gradually introducing new challenges and materials…
Every bridge has a budget, so you have to choose your materials carefully, and in some cases you only get to use a handful of these materials increasing the challenge…
And as you construct you can test the stability of your bridge at any moment by watching a car or truck drive across it..
Gaining more points if your bridge can handle the truck test…
Its insanely satisfying finally coming up with a solution to a weak spot in your bridge and pass levels that gave you so much trouble…
This is a great learning tool and problem solving game for all ages…
And things get even harder when you enter the land of slopemania and have to deal with building sloping bridges…
My only issue with this game is the slight nuisance of having to keep going into the material menu if I want to place pieces of my current material on other parts of the bridge…
By default your materials stick instead of being separate objects…
So a lot of times I would go place a piece of wood on the opposite side of my bridge only to realize I just placed a long piece of wood on the side I was trying to work away from…
It’s very easy to undo or delete individual sections of the bridge without destroying everything else…
But still just a bit annoying.. As well as the cloud sync every time I go to start a new level...
Bridge constructor is a simple and very accessible game in all of the right ways…
A few flow problems with the decisions to make materials continuously stick by default..
But this is still an addictive, fun, and challenging time...
If you love testing your brain, definitely pick this one up.
I give bridge constructor
an 7/10… Expand
Dec 27, 2017UI and art style that looks more like roughly 2002 instead of 2012 and awful, awful controls. Bridge pieces will seemingly randomly decideUI and art style that looks more like roughly 2002 instead of 2012 and awful, awful controls. Bridge pieces will seemingly randomly decide whether they are constructed with planes to drive on or not. Sometimes, you have to "cheat" by creating a piece and THEN move it to close a gap. In other words: godawful UI design.
I'm glad that they fixed at least that in Bridge Constructor Portal but... adding this as a bonus with the purchase without fixing the controls first was a bad decision in my opinion. Unless they want to demonstrate how much people can learn in 5 1/2 years. (Not enough, I'd say... not enough...)
Steam says that I've played this for 85 minutes and I say "That's enough time wasted".… Expand
