    Poly Bridge is a game beautiful in its simplicity, doing everything a good physics-based puzzle game should do.

    Poly Bridge is a title that will thrill those who enjoy the genre - it has very few flaws and a lot of playability. Cute, creative and challenging, it's a thoroughly enjoyable title.

    Building virtual bridges – and observing their collapses – has never been so fun. But beware of the occasional frustrating moments. Only rarely the puzzles are able to destroy the player's mood, like in the Poly Bridge.

    It's a humble game, with a nice design and a lot of effort put into it. It's a very interesting idea, but it needs more and better explanations of its mechanics.

    Poly Bridge is an uncommon puzzle game based on physics, in which players have to use not only ingenuity to win levels and have fun, but above all creativity and imagination.

    If you're looking for a gripping story or explosive action, Poly Bridge might not be for you. This is a peaceful game about building bridges.

    I was often left scratching my head wondering why my bridges kept collapsing.

Especially because of its UI. The art style and soundtrack are fantastic as well. And it has TONS of content. I'm 18 hours in and only gotten through half of the levels so far! (I'm usually trying to solve them under budget and without destroying bridge parts though)
    One thing I'd criticize are the UI - although better than that of other games like this (especially Bridge Constructor), it still doesn't behave like 95% of all programs that deal with creating and moving around things since the beginning of PCs. It's also a shame that the engine they are using for simulation can't deliver the same result on every run. So sometimes, you might load a save game and it suddenly doesn't work any more. But - if that's the case, there is usually a major flaw in the bridge design anyway, so I find this negligible...
    They even offer leaderboard rank statistics that are meaningful despite cheaters (they basically generate a diagram where they cut off outliers). AND an overview of all ranks across the whole game - I wish more games would have something like this!

    An absolutely beautiful game, even being a simple puzzle game.
    One of the best components of the game are his relaxing and really enjoyable soundtrack, and engineering and physics sense that are kind of requirements for keeping ahead to next level.
    Simply brilliant.

    Do not Recommended to buy it!

    This game was fun to play at the beginning. BUT... the physics of the game are completely broken!.

    The reason I am saying that is because, this is intended to be a physics-based puzzle game, where the objective is to build a strong enough bridge to support the vehicles needing to cross.
    If you successfully complete one level, and play it back again without change anything on the bridge, it will fall !!!; Therefore, you have to constantly grind and replay the levels over and over again making very small changes which are amplified and produce a totally different result. Additionally, the game have a fast forward switch which allows you to speed up the game time. If you make use of it, you will see who this affect the weight exerted on the bridge, making any vehicles heavier if the time run faster and lighter if the time run slower (which it doesn't make any sense because, again this speed up the game time, but the car speed)

    Furthermore, this game have problems placing the materials, making the experience worst. If you trying to place any material while you are building, the game won't allow you to do it even if you are in the available range. Additionally, it will snap into the closer dot even if you are far enough to avoid it
