About This Game

Become an appraised bridge engineer and architect in Bridge Constructor. Create and design your own constructions and watch the cars and trucks pass over them - or see them fall and crash while your inferior creations collapse due to weight and the laws of physics!

Progress through numerous levels and build bridges over deep valleys, canals, or rivers. Stress tests reveal whether the bridge you build can withstand the daily stress of continual use from cars and trucks.

Choose between a range of materials for each individual bridge, such as wood, steel, cables, or concrete pillars. Use the appropriate materials and stay within budget to build the perfect bridge. The choice of materials enables you to build each bridge in almost infinite variety – your budget is the only limit.

So get on the drawing board and set your imagination and creativity free!

The Steam version also includes SlopeMania, a fully sized Add-On to the original game, bringing more levels, features, a new setting and much more.

I've played three of the Bridge Constructor games, and find this one to be the hardest, but not sure if it was the bridges or the insane physics. This was the most frustrating of the three, mainly because a bridge may be successful one time in 10, but for different reasons - jumped funny, strange ramp effects, or tumbling incomprehensibly.

There are two parts, the main continent and the unlockable slope world. The slope world is the twist on this version of the game that salvaged the review, as the main continent was simply three bridge designs in different lengths, depending on what supplies you were granted. Slope you have to think about it, and deal with the crazy physics.

Bought in a bundle for about 75c US. Played for about 18 hours, with 4 of that on just a couple of bridges (see my guide on the worst one IMHO). NOT worth full retail of US$10, but if you can get it for 2.50 or less I think you will find it to be a pretty decent game.

5.5 / 10

Bridge Constuctor itself is definetly the hardest game of the series.
In the first moment it looks like Bridge Constructor Playground but it's quite more than that.
2 different maps 8 different islands. One island has normal bridges one has crazy bridges.
That means you have to build bridges with ramps and your test vehicles will fly through the air.

When you have completed all this then comes the freaky part. You'll get a little more budget but now there is this super heavy tank truck. Damnit I hate it when it explodes and rips your bridge off into pieces. If you like some challenge you can try to do some of the bridges just wooden. But at least at the tank truck challenge you must use every idea you have to get him over ...

I loved the game 'Bridge Builder' when I was younger and when I found 'Bridge Constructor' in the Steam Summer Sale I bought it (and the whole bundle of 'Bridge Constructor') at first sight.
The graphics are nice and there are many challenging and also very funny levels (look at my screenshots). Furthermore there are good guides helping you, if you cannot find a solution for your level. I reached 100% of the achievements after 12 hours playing this game, because I wanted to try it by myself before using a guide.
My conclusion; I would absolutely recommend this game.
