Относно тази игра

The Bridge is a 2D logic puzzle game that forces you to reevaluate your preconceptions of physics and perspective. It is Isaac Newton meets M. C. Escher. Manipulate gravity to redefine the ceiling as the floor while venturing through impossible architectures. Explore increasingly difficult worlds, each uniquely detailed and designed to leave you with a pronounced sense of intellectual accomplishment. The Bridge exemplifies games as an art form, with beautifully hand-drawn art in the style of a black-and-white lithograph.

Key Features

  • 48 thought-provoking puzzles, each unique from the rest, all requiring an innovative solution.
  • Gravity manipulations, gravitational vortexes, parallel dimensions, and many more mind-bending concepts in a world where the laws of physics are not what they seem.
  • M. C. Escher-esque worlds with impossible architecture set in the style of beautifully hand-drawn black-and-white lithographic art.
  • An alternate version of the game unlocked after the main storyline has been completed, including challenging alternate versions of each of the 24 main puzzles, along with an alternate ending.
  • A time-backtracking system to alleviate any fears of making a mistake.

Fascinating concept which intertwines well with the plot of the game.

Curious and progressively challenging. ( I didn't have it in me to finish the last level without help)

Proves that maths and physics are the champions of science.

I WILL find all those hidden whisps and complete achievements.... later, maybe after doing a science major first ;P

It's alright but I met a wall that stopped my progress near the end of the game. For the life of me, it was just impossible for me to solve and I refuse to use a walkthrough to remedy my situation. The game was fun until the end. This reminds me of that unforgiving last section run in Ducktales Remastered; it ruined everything.

Nicely drawn - tricky puzzles.
Somewhat disturbing due to the lack of pupils O_O and creepy background music.

Main gripes:
- Rotation speed could be a bit faster
- Drawing the character at the start of every level is an unneeded delay.

The Bridge is a puzzle game that is using the concept of relativity and gravitation to solve many puzzles and IMO has a really familiar vibe with Braid.
Pros:
-. Really great puzzles and concept
-. Great art and sound
-. The achievement isn't that hard if you can solve the puzzle

Cons:
-. Sometimes the puzzle is really hard and make me dizzy
-. IMO it can be bigger (A little short)
-. The story is a bit confusing

8/10

A tough, challenging game with some very clever puzzles. The mechanics take some time to master, but the game does a good job at introducing them to you procedurally.

There is a bit of frustration to be found with some seemingly arbitrary "what surface is solid and which isn't" in certain puzzles, but aside from that, despite the challenge it doesn't get rage-worthy.

And I know rage, believe me.

Did you like Braid? You'll probably like The Bridge. It's got a charming sketchy art style and while it's not a long game by any measure, it manages to wring a fair amount of mileage out of the fundamentally simple mechanics. Because the mechanics of the game are so simple (your options are to walk, rotate, use, or rewind) it's possible to stumble upon the solution to many of the puzzles by simple trial and error, but it's very rewarding to watch a plan come to fruition.
The sparse plot\exposition, told largely through short snippets of text and bits of art, is abstract enough to be either deeply compelling, effectively disposable, or annoyingly pretentious, depending on your preferences.

Love this game, but I will say this; it's not for everyone, sadly. You do need to have at least a basic understanding of extra-dimensional geometry, gravitational theory, and the rather specific(and exacting) branch of quantum physics known as temporal physics, as well as a healthy appreciation for the (seemingly) impossible geometrical art of M.C. Escher.That said, it's a very enjoyable game, provided you have a great deal of patience, and an excellent sense of timing. But whatever you do, DO NOT attempt to play this while you are tired, experiancing vertigo, or otherwise incapacitated; you will make mistakes, you will lose, and you will get frustrated! So only play this when you are calm, clear-headed, and motivated. Do that, and you'll love this game too! :D

Absolutely a MASTERPIECE and a MUST HAVE in your library. It is surely worth well over its full price and it's often 90% off.

Probably the most entertaining, satisfying and mind-boggling puzzle game ever. Definitely the best Indie I ever played.

I enjoyed the graphics, music, simplicity of gameplay and difficulty of puzzles, lenght, grayscale design, simply everything you get.

If youre a social justice warrior, do not play this game. you have to be white to enter certain doors. If youre a normal human being and not mentally ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ like the SJW, play the game. i have to admit, the last chapeter (chapter 4) is the only hard chapter. others i just keep rotation and and beat the puzzle.

The good news about this game: You get to solve puzzles! The bad news: There's a 50/50 chance you'll have no idea what it was you did that solved them. It's a weird mix of pride and confusion, not unlike when your grandmother hugs you and says you're her favorite fat grandchild.

There's also a third possibility in which you get stuck and can't solve your current puzzle, but I wouldn't worry about that. Your brain will have melted down and leaked out of your ears by that time anyway, so you won't even notice your ineptitude. All you'll remember is that you were playing a cool weird puzzle game and there was something pleasantly warm on your neck.

The Bridge takes "Isaac Newton meets M.C. Escher" completely literally and the result is as perplexing as it sounds. Natural gravity is disregarded and surfaces twist to bend back onto themselves. However, this is still a physics puzzle game and so paths and solutions have to be plotted out in a place where up and down are no longer locked in a single position. The black and white sketched out world suits this sort of experimental thinking and the dawdling, clumsy intellectual of an avatar does as well. But those same qualities - that make sense as a matter of theme - slow down trial and error investigation causing the game itself to become tedious and frustrating at times. Aggravating as it can be sometimes waiting for a puzzle to finish turning or the protagonist to get from one place to another, finding the solution and hearing that door creak open is always rewarding. This quality shines especially bright at the halfway mark, when the game revisits all the previous levels as mirrored versions of themselves. Along with flipping the level itself, many new obstacles are added, including a brand new timing element in some sections. Surprisingly, these levels feel only vaguely familiar instead of the lazy rehashes that tactic would expectantly yield. It goes to show how well-crafted the original puzzle worlds were and how great each individual, independent piece is.
It's a shame then, that the story doesn't fit together as neatly. It's only told through snippets or thought fragments, leaving most to the imagination. Due to how little material there is to work with, it's difficult to tell if there is a deep, compelling narrative to piece together or if it's positioned as deliberately obtuse in order to hide the fact that the game has nothing to say. The worst thing about it, or the best depending on your perspective, is that I can't seem to stop myself from coming back to it over and over again.

Great and challenging puzzle game that plays with physics of our nature with a good combination of art and concept of the game.

Finished 100% achievements in about 12hours (it can be donde faster, I got stucked sometimes in the hardest puzzles).

Its been a while I don't play such a great puzzle game!

It is short, but the puzzles are really worthy. The art is great, and the "collector" achievement is quite of a challenge too!
The only downside are the controls: sometimes you wish The Professor would walk faster, and the world spin faster. There should be an option to speed up the gameplay.

The story is also lacking, which is a pitty. It is too vague and easilly missed. All in all, this is a puzzle game, play it for the puzzles and you shall not be disappointed!

The bridge is a very impressive game with amazing art direction, an incredibly abstract and artful level design, and a mind-bending concept overall. The art style is definitely what will grab your attention the most; every single character model and backdrop is very carefully crafted in a greyscale, architecture like style, and every bit of the scenery has something interesting to look at. The gameplay is also very impressive for what it has presented, and each level has its own unique concept... that is until you get to the mirrored world, which is just the same design as the previous levels only in reverse and with a few extra obstacles thrown in. To be honest if there were no more ideas for levels then the game should have ended after the first 4 worlds. But that's really my only complaint and no where near hindered my enjoyment.

Overall this is a fantastic game that any puzzle enthusiast and art lover will enjoy.

The Bridge is made from M. C. Escher's nightmares. Normally that would be a bad thing, but in this case, it's very good. The Bridge is a puzzle game with a simple premise: Reach the exit door. Your only tool is control over the direction of gravity though you can only change its direction slowly. You will need to avoid deadly obstacles and obtain keys to unlock doors in order to escape.

While a few of the levels require frustrating levels of repetition and precision in order to reach your goal, most of them are very enjoyable. In total there are 24 puzzles and 24 mirror versions which add some elements of difficulty in addition to being reversed. Strangely I found the mirror versions of some of the hardest levels easier than their normal counterparts. Even if you aren't into puzzle games, the Escher-like artwork is worth marveling at.

One thing I found missing in the game is music. It seems like a greatly missed opportunity for a unique and strange soundtrack to match the level design. There is some music in the game but it plays rarely and is very quiet.

The other major weakness I found is probably not something many players will encounter: The collectibles. Some are absurdly difficult to find, and one even requires you doing something that the game constantly tells you doesn't work for the entire game. When you do locate them all, the reward is extremely anticlimactic. It's annoying but like I said, the majority of players probably won't bother with the collectibles and those that do will most likely use guides so they don't go insane trying to find them all.

As a fan of puzzle games, I greatly enjoyed The Bridge. You will too!

I see quite a few people picking this up at the very low sale price. Just in case there's anyone else sitting on the fence about this, I thought I should add a note of caution. This is essentially a physics puzzler, which is ostensibly a genre I enjoy. In this case however, I think the the execution fails to live up to the ideas. For me, most of the challenge in the game came not through reasoning through the puzzles (though there were moments), but in wrestling with object momentum that frequently ended up being more frustrating than satisfying. At the sale price of $1 it's hard to argue that it's a waste of money. But I feel that personally for me it ended up being a waste of time. And that's something a low price does nothing to help. I see many good things written elsewhere about this game, so I may be in a minority in feeling this way, but I can't help but feel that there are far better puzzle games out there, despite the compelling visual style that I still find appeals to me even though it also triggers memories of annoying level design.
