Om spelet

The Bridge is a 2D logic puzzle game that forces the player to reevaluate their 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 the player 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.

If You like puzzles, it's a must. M.C. Escher paintings, gone wild as a game of mind bending 4D puzzles.

Seemingly Simple, Yet so complex!

It is a level-iteration of what you'd expect Fez to have been, puzzle-wise. You will get frustrated, you will get stuck. Take a break, a nap, try it later and it will be like "oh, that's simple!

Introduces mechanics over time, slowly, they mix well, and the art is as good as it gets.

If you hate puzzles, avoid. Simple as that.

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!

Had to take aspirin after last 3 sessions.

Wouldn't play it again, but I'm glad I did.

I find myself really enjoying puzzles later. And this is not the best one. Don't get me wrong, Bridge is a good game, but it looks like poor cousin of Braid, when we are talking about gameplay and methaphoric-metaphysic story, and they got a lot of common letters in their names as well. Art style is brilliant. But from the "story" perspective Bridge is the great pretender. Game trying to be an art as hard as it can. Still it's not the bad part. Sad thing for me that Bridge is very easy till the middle of the game, and then it became balance-puzzle. Most of the tasks challenge your balance, reaction and positioning. And sometimes it does that in a very annoying manner. For me it feels like dissonance when "clever looking" game mostly questioning not your intellect, but your feel of momentum. 72/100

One of the best games I have ever played.
Great inspirations and art style. Amazing puzzles. Stunning soundtrack, mood, and simple-yet-intriguing storyline.
The intuitive design, the challenging use of gravity and other elements that are added on as you progress, and the impossible Escher-esque world combine to form something that is definitely unique, being fun and replayable as well. Takes a while to 100%... well worth the $10. I bought it for $15 and would have gladly paid $20. That's coming from someone who typically waits for sales.

Being one of the first PC games that I got on steam, I still enjoy going back and playing this from time to time, solving the puzzles and enjoying the experience. I love how the artwork influences the game, because this game is such a prime example of how much of an artwork videogames really are.


Please don't use guides too often though. This game has a lot of great aspects to it, but without the puzzles there might not be enough to stay true to what it is...

Recommended completely and more than almost all of the other puzzle games I've played. If you're someone that likes to think... really hard sometimes, and in general enjoys solving puzzles, then this is a must have.
