Bridge Constructor Review

Every now and then a game comes along that you think may not be for you but you give it a try and find out it turns into one of the most addictive games you have ever come across, right here is one of those games. As soon as I picked up my controller and tried the first level, a hidden inner bridge constructor was unleashed. I found myself thinking about support beams and symmetry in a whole new perspective, not to mention also wanting my bridge to look pretty as well as being functional (laugh if you like but you will experience these feelings too when you play).

The aim is straight forward, make a bridge that safely allows vehicle to cross a gap. Sounds simple so far but prepare for challenges, lots of head scratching, frustration for when you think you’ve nailed it and that dance for when the vehicles do make it.

Each level gives you a specific budget to stick to, without this the game would be far too easy and for me provides a nice challenge. Use your hard hat alter ego when it comes to material choice, wood is cheap but not as strong as steel so choose correctly or your bridge will fail. My only tip is ‘use the triangle’, they are really strong and can support well (It took me a while to figure this out so remember to thank me in advance).

Work your way across five islands, each with various challenges that vary in each location. When you build your bridge you then get to run some vehicles over it, start off with the cars and then progress onto the more weightier lorries. I choose to try both before progressing onto the next bridge, you’ll find that you also say the following:

“That bridge will easily take the lorries, bring it on!!”

The construction side of the game is very well laid out, use the grid to position the materials and away you go. No overly complicated menus, just pick what you want to use then put it where you want it. The background settings were always pleasing to the eye, very scenic and beautifully drawn.

The replay value is also very high in ‘Bridge Constructor’, after you have completed all the bridges you get to use something much larger. Please say hello to the Tank Truck, bigger than anything else in the game and twice as challenging. You’ll have to make sure those bridges meet the grade with this behemoth, otherwise an explosion is guaranteed.

If you’re still hungry for more bridge building, you also have the SlopeMania extras to deal with. Here you’ll find yourself on the Tiltin Islands, home to three brand new islands where you’ll even be building your bridges inside colorful grottoes! The 24 tricky levels will have you using sloping lanes to overcome the massive height differences. The “Crazy Levels” are the real brainteasers and require out-of-the-box thinking and unusual solutions, sometimes the really wacky designs work the best here.

I really enjoyed playing ‘Bridge Constructor’ and I think you will too, you can get it either through your Xbox One or by clicking hereAt a very reasonable £7.99 it is well worth it, check out the video below for some gameplay footage to let you know what to expect:

All in all ‘Bridge Constructor’ is well worth playing, you can pick it up very quickly and find yourself playing for hours in order to become a bridge building God. It makes you frustrated when things go wrong but also makes you ecstatic when the bridge says in one piece, plus SlopeMania provides an excellent sidetrack to let your creative side go wild.
