    It does feel like you’re playing a mobile game on your console but that’s not a bad thing.

    Bridge Constructor succeeds at being a surprisingly entertaining bridge physics simulator, but glaring issues like the confusing UI, nearly nonexistent tutorial, and terrible sound design get in the way of it being an otherwise decent game.

    If physics with a steep learning curve is something you want, and you're a veteran of the genre, you may be able to work with the poor controls and user interface to glean some satisfaction from this one. If you're new to the genre, then start elsewhere. There are better games than this that you haven't played yet.

    I can’t get the thought out of my head that life’s too short to play a game that is so, well, mundane. I guess what I’m saying is that for those of you who love bridges and hate monsters and explosions, Bridge Constructor is the one for you. For the rest of us, there’s Gears of War 4.

    A pointless porting, with the same bugs of the original PC game from three years ago and an imprecise control system.

    It isn't a bad game by any means and will provide entertainment for a while, but some will find the shackles and repetitiveness to be all too much, not to mention the fact that the all-but-identical mobile version is a quarter of the price.

    Its puzzles are frustrating not because they are hard, but because cost-management means you spend more time trying to figure out what parts can be deleted so you have can build elsewhere.

    Bridge Constructor
    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

At first I really enjoyed it--despite the controls being a bit glitchy and the fact that I had no idea what to do on the first bridge but after playing for a few minutes I was able to figure it out. There is no real tutorial, it gets very repetitive after about ten bridges and I definitely had to mute the sound -- as soon as the game loaded up, it only took about ten seconds to know I did not want to hear the game music. I would caution against this title, simply because at $10 (U.S) it is not worth it. If it ever goes on sale --maybe try it then. Expand
